Big Lou Reed energy

On the last episode my main takeaway beyond it being brilliant is that New York City is an absolute shithole in a way I didn’t realise when we went and has never really been depicted on screen before.

It is a bit of a shit hole and most people there are just doing something weird all the time. Think that’s why I was disappointed with Portland cause it’s meant to be wall to wall weirdness but New York is 10 x weirder.

I would not recommend this show to anyone who hasn’t been to New York.

His cat is so adorable

So, having finished this, my thoughts are:

  • it was brilliant
  • NY can look like a dump sometimes
  • the fact that iPlayer played it out of order worked really well for me- it played S1E6 then S2E6 and they flowed perfectly. Risotto then Spontaneity. Ahhh.

I love the way he says “wow” when he’s interviewing people. Makes me chuckle every time he does it.
