Meet your new best girlfriends. Michelle is a hard-nosed Science Fiction editor who is used to things going her way; Taneesha is a talented video game programmer who is used to being the odd (wo)man out. Aditi is a fantasy writer on the verge of her big break; Christina is a rebel on the sidelines of Hollywood. And Elli is a fan – of anything and everything that keeps are from “proper adulting.” Together they are Rebel Scum (at least in their shared group chat), and best friends through thick and thin. They might live far apart but through the power of the internet and a shared love of all things geek, they are ready to face the world side by side.
This is the 11th episode in the first season of Geek Actually, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by Melissa Blue.
Even though after last episode, I was totally in camp no forgiveness, I am glad that Taneesha was able to see that Diego truly didn’t feel the way he implied. He learned, he asked questions, he googled. To me that is exactly what some of these ‘Not All Men’ thinkers need to do. Just a few episodes prior I was all in it with their relationship, I wanted both of them to find the one good thing in this world together. So I am back to hoping for the best with the Tango ship! Yes, I just gave them a ship name, sue me! But so help me…that boy better not mess up again!
Elli is missing in this episode, and so was Christina pretty much, except to kick her sister, Michelle into understanding why her professional and personal relationship with Aditi is failing miserably. Aditi had a serious eye awakening when it comes to the relationships in her life. She doesn’t seem to speak with her family much anymore, her husband is becoming a stranger, rather than her best friend, and she takes some serious reflection on herself. She decided to put an end to the things in her life that were just not working out. It is hard to believe she actually took such a hard stance with all of that, but I respect her for doing so.
This episode felt like a lot of big things happened to Taneesha, Aditi, and Michelle, and I worry about their stories wrapping up in the next 2 episodes. But no matter what I am excited for the next two but also sad that it’s the last two. I need these ladies in my life each week!
