#############

Netflix’s Bangkok Love Stories: Innocence is a Thai comedy series set in Bangkok’s dense, urban Silom district, where an ensemble of teens and twentysomethings work, play, eat and fall in love, not necessarily in that order. Clearly geared toward teen gas 76 audiences, the series likely hopes to transcend the language barrier with its glossy, slick and colorful visual appeal, as well as healthy doses of broad humor and heavy-handed drama. BANGKOK LOVE STORIES: INNOCENCE: STREAM IT OR SKIP IT?

The Gist: The first episode establishes a handful of principals electricity quiz ks3, cleverly spinning one character introduction off another, and another, for roughly its first half. Claudia (Nida Patcharaveerapong) works in a papaya-salad restaurant where she banters with a co-worker (Teera Pratumtree), and wields a mean pestle, which she uses to threaten rude customers, and occasionally to grind food. JC (Kawin Manonukul), who works at the KFC next door, uses his significant parkour skills to fend off a heavily tattooed American bruiser who tries to sexually assault Claudia after closing gas vs diesel cars time. She asserts she didn’t need his help — but there might be a spark between them anyway. JC, meanwhile, yearns for his sort-of girlfriend, who lives far away, and Claudia goes home, where she talks to a photograph of a man we assume is dead.

Eve (Narupornkamol Chaisang) is a businesswoman bringing paperwork to her boss at a hostess electricity vs magnetism bar. (Note to American audiences: hostess bars offer male patrons the company of attractive women while they drink. They’re similar to strip clubs, albeit without the nudity or dancing.) She drinks a few too many beers, and needs to be helped off the sidewalk by Danny (Pond Ponlawit Ketprapakorn), the shy nephew of the bar owner. He has a crush on one of the young women in his aunt’s employ, but ends up continuing Eve’s bender, mistaking her for electricity outage houston a hostess.

Mednoon (Tachakorn Boonlupyanun) and Simon (Tosatid Darnkhuntod) are buddies out on the town for the evening. She’s a randy flirt; he’s a reserved gay man. They attend a stripper revue where men parade on stage in their skivvies while holding adorable dogs, then auction off their clothes to the highest bidder. One mysterious stripper, known as Mr. K (Nattapol hair electricity dance moms Diloknawarit), catches Simon’s eye, and tosses his prop rugby ball at him. Hmm. Hmm, I say. Hmm.

Our Take: Bangkok Love Stories: Innocence establishes a wacky tone in its opening moments, when Olivia chucks her pestle at an obnoxious customer and it rebounds around the room, Looney Tunes-style, before it clobbers an innocent bystander. The scene a level physics electricity notes is so drawn-out, it comes dangerously close to being unfunny. The show also handles her near-assault in a distasteful, offhanded fashion — “I almost got raped by a foreigner today… Speaking of which, it might be good to get some action. We haven’t done it for ages,” she says to the photograph.

Many scenes are extended for no particular reason, garishly padding the 45-minute run time like the shoulders of an ’80s blazer, and in dire need of some editorial alterations. The strip-club sequence lingers so we can get long, deep electricity reading comprehension and succulent looks at the beefcake on display. A scene where Danny massages drunk Eve’s feet while she moans orgasmically could have stopped after the first half-dozen ohhhhhhs. And JC’s fight with the rapist is slapstick on top of slapstick fortified with more slapstick (just don’t call it parkoureography!).

Frankly, I’m not sure any of this should be taken seriously. The pilot smacks of an MTV wd gaster cosplay original, heavy on light smut and with tongue firmly in cheek, but I’ll underscore this moment again: “Speaking of which, it might be good to get some action.” Egads. Tellingly, the opening credits sequence concludes with all the major characters electricity magnetism and electromagnetic theory pdf shedding tears, so the goofy overacting and cartoonish comedy surely will yield to serious heartbreak in future episodes — if you make it that far. This debut episode is a weird, sloppy mess.
