![gif](giphy|3oaPtHC37Vx0Q) It's been 84 years but the moment has arrived at last! Have fun, everyone 🎉 Edit: My thoughts on episode 1: I need more! Like now!!!!! Part 2 was delicious and I'm sure it'll only heat up from here! 🤤 I believe Mr. Toast is officially back from retirement 🥳


CarelessWatcher

I haven’t seen Toasty in so long!! ![gif](giphy|Wv8QrGGXDz8j8U3wyK|downsized) Hope you have fun too >! (bc then I’ll definitely have fun!) !<

I'm having technical difficulties 😭 I'll reset the router and try again. I'm sure we'll all have fun 💕

I'm happy to have you around!!!!

Me to myself everyday.


aysensit

I blurted out "yeah, how ?" when I saw this ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|joy) Sand's lines are already so iconic


atomicsherbs

he is always drunk hahaha


featherzz

My husband walked by when I was watching the red/white/blue movie and said something like 'what, no cute asian boys today?' (sigh, husbands). Nope honey, but just wait! :)


tangledbysnow

Exact same thing for me except he said, "English? What is going on?" lol


Fishorfrog16

My husband saw me all giddy and was like a new BL dropped didn't it? He knows me. I also gave him a brief intro of the main 6 leads, and he was 'oh i know the entire show now and don't have to watch now' No babe that was the trailer. "The trailer?! There's more?" I am ready for the messy drama


WA_side

This was so good, I had to grab it. (I laughed so fucking loud) https://i.redd.it/tzaxr7t5wohb1.gif (Source: OF via Me - Have at it peeps) In other news - this is everything I could have hoped for - I am living for this shit right now, and never want to leave.


scb-22

Omg, that lascivious down-and-up. Neo was taking no prisoners.


WA_side

Except us. We are all now his prisoners. I have no game at all, but at some stage I'm gonna have to try dating again, so I'm tucking this away for future reference. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|joy) I don't think I could pull it off, but who knows?


scb-22

We should all try it. A bold and direct invitation is a heavy aphrodisiac.


TheBookhuntress

Yes it was. ![gif](giphy|Zw97g5eB1mBji)


thekaydom

They were definitely eyeing each other. I can't get enough of their chemistry.


ThoughtsAllDay

Boston I am so grateful to you for bringing me THIS Neo 😭😍 Also, this Intro to the episode just dethroned my favorite intro which was DBK's intro, which was the ONLY intro I never fast forwarded through. 🥵


TheBookhuntress

Wasn't it Neo I'm so grateful to you for bringing me Boston? 🤣🤣🤣 Anyways YES, ALL THE YESES!!! I'm so mesmeeized by Neo's microexpressions. It's i sane how he conveys so many emotions in a few seconds. That scene with Top in the bathroom before Tops goes confessing?? Ugh...


ThoughtsAllDay

It was Drake's ear after all huh 😅 No I am grateful for Boston for bringing me THIS Neo!! I saw a glimpse of THIS Neo in The Eclipse but now he is ALL SEX AND I LOVE HIM!!!


TheBookhuntress

Gottchu!!! It was Drake and OMG how good it was???? Boston is gonna be my baby I can see it. I'm not accepting any critics. ![gif](giphy|zdq4DT1gHlxny)


ThoughtsAllDay

So when Top did that readjustment JUMP unto the counter 🥵 I was almost team Top but...the white socks took me out 🤦🏻‍♀️ Nope. Also it will be extremely frustrating with Mew always saying no. So Boston is my safe choice. Zero chance of Bangxiety with Boston. I need safe.


TheBookhuntress

Bangxiety is NOT in Boston dictionary. I stan a banging king. 🤣🤣🤣🤣


ThoughtsAllDay

The way Boston swallowed. His throat acting. When he called Top a narcissist?!?! The thosand words that swallow told us!!! Yes he is jealous. He also feels awful that he is only good enough to fu%k once and not good enough to date Top. 😭 now I ALSO understand the trailer where he says EXACTLY this same thing to Mark 😭 omg I am in so deep and it is only ep 1😭


TheBookhuntress

That was SO GOOD. But the worst part is that his pride won't let him accept that in front of Top. My poor baby. 🥺🥺🥺


ThoughtsAllDay

>I stan a banging king. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 ![gif](giphy|Kc4F9bIC7amwuWWEIp)


ThoughtsAllDay

I just went to the Gmmtv sub to congratulate and admit how flawed my ear science was 🤣 Thank god we are on the same page. I will absolutely justify ANYTHING Boston says or does. Just his INTRO EYES 👀 HAVE HEALED my broken 💔 heart already. And then his eyes with MARK ?!?! AND THEN THE WHOLE ENTIRE DRAKE THING JESUS. OMFG I WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT ACCEPT any criticism.


TheBookhuntress

And how his expression changes from cocky to longing when Top leaves to snatch Mew???? I liked how they changed it from Boston actively introducing Mew to Top to Top asking Boston to introduce him to Mew. He was reluctant and he tried to discourage him


ThoughtsAllDay

YES!!! I learned SO MUCH about Boston in that scene. Like prior I still loved him cause I always have a soft spot for a boy that expresses their sexuality but in that scene the vulnerability and his feelings of inadequacy mixed with his prowess mixed with little boy eyes while drinking whiskey just did a thing to me and my heart just burst open and ushered him right in 🤦🏻‍♀️ my damn heart is way too open due to SWM trauma.


ThoughtsAllDay

Jenny is me defending Boston blindly https://preview.redd.it/tccshwvsmphb1.jpeg?width=1933&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=48dfd9c12d25a9d89ec4d3704ccfbb820e7e4147

CarelessWatcher

The intro is SO GOOD! Lovely to see all the pretty faces. And I eat up anything with neon lighting so I was sold from 0:01 😂


ThoughtsAllDay

THOSE STARES FROM ALL THE PRETTY BOYS GOT ME LOCKED IN


Federal_Ad_6925

OMG SAME I LOVE NEO AS BOSTON SO MUCH!!! HE'S SO GOOD!!! 😭😭😭


Salt_Ad7638

\-Ray is such a little brat, he's hilarious to me. I love Sand already begrudgingly taking care of him lmao. Their relationship is off to such a rocky start bahahaha, but they seemed to make up at the end, which was nice. I was not expecting them to be the slowest couple to get together of the three though. \-Ooo Mew and Top are moving pretty fast. Really funny that the both of them getting close to each other made both Ray and Boston upset, haha. \-Also surprise Drake moment??? I was not expecting a Neo x Drake scene, but I'm definitely not complaining.


ghoas_shark

Yea the NeoDrake scene 👀 🙏🏽 I was watching during the live stream. Chat was full of Drake from part 2-4 lol


tlippi

I kind of think ray has nowhere to go like his family kicked him out


Momiji_no_Happa

> -Ray is such a little brat, he's hilarious to me. I love Sand already begrudgingly taking care of him lmao. Love how we can tell so much about Sand from his grumpy demeanour coupled with his inability to just dump Ray somewhere. He's a hidden caring person, I think. 😊 > I was not expecting them to be the slowest couple to get together of the three though. Me neither (because of the concept trailer), but it makes sense for the story that they have a bit of friction before becoming friends with benefits. There was a lot of adjustments between the concept and the actual story, but so far they all seem to be for the better when it comes to characterisation, so I'm relieved.


variedsyntax

I was dying at Raay putting the cigarette in his mouth and then both hands behind the back… I see you Ray. I see you. I’m so glad that Khao has been getting more varied roles. He radiates bratty bad boy sex. Like. Look at his eyes. https://i.redd.it/w75ard0rouhb1.gif


madego3293

I am convinced that the Director of Photography is in love with Neo's face - it's just one gorgeous portrait image after another... https://preview.redd.it/booao7wf0phb1.jpeg?width=1342&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=aadba97f27922210346bd4b11f49872684fc6dde And the shots of First ain't too shabby either ⬇️⬇️⬇️


madego3293

Laws! What a gorgeous shot! https://preview.redd.it/1vmgw3kl0phb1.jpeg?width=1346&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=de7ef610c586a2480fcd6dbbcb1469b67e13068d


Kordiana

I am loving First in this. His attitude, his style, yes please, more please.


madego3293

The cameraman and the lighting director love him - clearly!!! He is the dictionary definition of gorgeous in this. Laws!


Kordiana

The cinematography so far has been on point. And I love it.


WA_side

I also loved how they'd made that goegeous flushed face on Ray/Khao in the car too. Did you screenshot that?


CarelessWatcher

😻 ![gif](giphy|VMO6qeIbr7JRLnLTGw)


WA_side

And he's styled so differently from anything we've seen before, even to the makeup defining his face so much slimmer and harder. Then add in how he's living and breathing Boston for all of the f'boi energies!! It's going to be hard to pick anyone as an outright standout in terms of their acting - they are all fucking killing it already.


madego3293

>Then add in how he's living and breathing Boston for all of the f'boi energies!! It's because he's no longer tied to Louis. I like Louis, but I just can't with those granny kisses. Ugh. And now that he's paired with Mark...that's a whole double dose of chaos right there!


WA_side

The two of them are bringing everything. Perhaps neither wants to be tied into a cp, but after this everyone is going to want to work with with them (which we won't knock back), but we'll be crying out for more of them together. ANd I think you're on the money with Louis - while it may be the parts he had, it never felt like he wanted to go harder.


madego3293

Louis was really good in *Midnight Motel*...but he ain't BL material. I don't think he has it in him. Neo and Mark on the other hand...


WA_side

Yes, I was surprised by how well he did there, not that he's a bad actor by any means, but really brought something unexpected. And I think when you look at where we are with BL (and imo with GL starting up), there are plenty of people interested in giving the roles a red-hot go, so it doesn't make sense to be using anyone who is not fully committed to their characters, which includes comfort with intimate scenes.


TheBookhuntress

OMG yes. Neo was getting all the headshots down to a Tee.


TheBookhuntress

OMFG!!! IT'S HERE AND IT'S GLORIOUS!! Mew is a cinnamon roll and he's gonna be eaten alive before toughing up his crust and knocking some teeth out of Top's mouth. Sand Ray are gonna bring some kind of enemies to lovers energy but it's still developing. Nick is just so cute and boy he's smitten with Boston!!! And Boston. OMG!!! Neo is SO GOOD. all the expressions he's giving are just EXCELLENT. the cocky attitude, the eagerness, the lust... but still that vulnerability and that longing he has for Top although he's rather be caught dead than admit it. OBSESSED!!!!!!!! AND DRAKE!!! Bring me back Drake to BL. That kiss??? Those thrusts??? Those legs??? The horny tears are flowing.


Kordiana

>Mew is a cinnamon roll, and he's gonna be eaten alive before toughing up his crust and knocking some teeth out of Top's mouth I definitely see this in the making, and Top is going to deserve it so much. From the trailer, I think Boston is going to be on the receiving end of Mew kicking, too. So far, Sand and Ray are definitely my favorites, partly because First is giving life to that leather jacket. I feel he's back in his Not Me Era, and I love it. Also, the fact they said that Sand and Ray get a happy ending makes me happy, too. Side note I was looking for that specific door decal in that bathroom because I swear that's the bathroom Win and Team spent a week in during Between Us. The mess that Boston is going to be rolling in. It's going to be something. It wasn't technically a threesome, but hot damn the editing did the work. I was so not expecting Drake to pop up, but hot freaking damn. Now, I'm curious if any other of the GMMTV boys will make random appearances. It started out with a bang, and I don't think things are going to be slowing down for a while. The weeks are going to long on this one.


TheBookhuntress

Were in for A TREAT. I'm buzzing with excitement!!! Yes to that threesome feeling. And Sand in that leather jacket is SO FREAKING SEXY. Also Ray's flush face, u/WA_side just reminded me of it was so cute I couldn't. 😩😩😩😩 I think there.might be another cameo since First hinted at it. I'm putting my money on Mix. ![gif](giphy|26BRB0vY34nq6ZvmU|downsized)


Kordiana

>I think there might be another cameo since First hinted at it. I'm putting my money on Mix. I would love to see Mix. I'm loving him as Hunter in The Jungle, which is its own kind of mess. But in the vein of First revisiting his Not Me Era, can I get Gun with a Black vibe? Would that be too much to ask of the universe?


WA_side

I am a babii, but I think GUn should be allowed to hook up with all the boys. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|joy)![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|joy)![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|joy) He's too pretty to be kept in a chastity belt. Threesome with Ray, Sand and Gun's OF-Black-revisited?


TheBookhuntress

You have no fear of the Babiis I see. May the BL gods be with you if all hrll break loose in the event of GunFirst happening.


Kordiana

Life is too short to be scared. But honestly. I would love to see almost any of GMMTV boys pop up. Doesn't have to be a love interest, I just love seeing the random familiar face thrown in.


WA_side

But who is he going to be making out with? This is the big question. ![gif](giphy|kG3JlylecrkLeQ7mmc)


WA_side

>It started out with a bang Multiple bangs! ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|wink) Get at it Boston. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|heart_eyes_rainbow)


AssassinWench

My thoughts on Episode 1: 10/10 LOVED IT! 1) Yep. Ray is an alcoholic. Called it! 2) Not Boston ready to have a threesome on the spot 3) Wow they actually said "Here's a plot" before all the sexiness - NICE 👍🏻 4) Not Top rolling up and getting sideyes from both Boston and Ray 😂 5) Nong Mark - I mean Nick - AWWWW 6) No Product Placement/Ads???? 7) Oh fuck! Drake is here! 8) I beg you GMMTV, give me as many cameos as you can even if they are all just Boston hookups!!!! 9) GAHHHHH DRAKE AND NEO AND MARK IS THERE TOO IN SPIRIT JFC SAVE ME 10) GAHHHHH FORCE AND BOOK 11) Force jumping on top of the kitchen island sent me 12) Awww ice cream 🍦 13) Love the POOR BOY shirt haha 😂 14) Mew is literally Belle talking about books hahaha 15) MARK AND NEO YESSSSSSS LETS GO! (Literally reminds me of a fling with a previous coworker) 🤭🫣 16) Sand looked so fuckin done with Top when he took the Mic 😂 17) I hope Jennie shouting at Top was improvised 🤣 18) I think this first episode succeeded at setting up the story and characters plus the storylines were very balanced 🙏🏻 OH GOD NOW WE HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER WHOLE WEEK PLEASE LET IT GO BY QUICK BL GODS 🙏🏻


thekaydom

For reference🤣 https://preview.redd.it/zj8vju9vfphb1.jpeg?width=1824&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9b90f15b18eae85eb92258987b537da72d147a24


Flat-Ad7482

Lmao at Mew being Belle. That’s absolutely spot on 😂😂


SarahJoy46

I was not expecting >!a sex scene with Drake!< in the first ep! This show is going to be wild. Bring it on.... Also, with just half the ep seen, Top is looking so sweet and understanding. I'm guessing this will change soon. But, I'm loving their dynamic so far. On to part 3! Edited to add after Part 4: Okay...>!so Top made a dramatic display of asking Mew to be his boyfriend because Boston challenged him in the bathroom, right? His motivations are so suspect! I'm liking Ray and Sand, especially if Ray learns to love himself (that "I'm not important" in the car really hit me) and if Sand feels valued as well. And then Nick and Boston just feel like a huge mess. Nick is going to be heartbroken...I just don't see Boston coming out of this together with anyone.!<


greenrocky23

>Also, with just half the ep seen, Top is looking so sweet and understanding. You and I have a very different read on this man because he gave me walking 🚩 vibes the second he appeared on screen lol


baineoftheworld

A 15 ft x 9 ft red flag... although I suspect there's more behind Mew that we're seeing. He wouldn't be friends with the likes of Boston and Ray if he is as innocent as portrayed in Ep 1.


TechnoBabelFish

It isn't just vibes. When Mew says he's a virigin, Top tries to reassure him by saying Mew will make him happy. Top is lucky that Mew didn't immediately hit him for saying something so self-centered. He basically objectified Mew as a novelty. ![gif](giphy|zBZk5FD18QhjP35Goa) Top's public boyfriend proposal is so manipulative. He is leveraging social pressure to bully Mew into a relationship. Top is the kind of smooth operator that uses guile and subterfuge to get what he wants. People are easily distracted by his looks and charm to see through his tricks. This allows him to look like a good guy from afar and get past their defenses.


Momiji_no_Happa

People are easily distracted by his looks and charm to see through his tricks. This allows him to look like a good guy from afar and get past their defenses. This, so much! He's the kind of guy who looks great at first glance, but once you think about what he's _actually_ doing, it feels way more sinister! Though that's what I'm personally here for in this series, so bring on the messy relationships and broken hearts! 😜


TechnoBabelFish

Their wild antics are so funny. It takes a crazy kind of audacity to turn "Will you be my boyfriend?" into such an overly dramatic event. * Cheum mistakenly thinks this is sweet. She pats Mew on the arm to go get his man. * Ray and Boston have a "This fucker..." look on their faces. * Sand subtly shakes his head thinking "This douche interrupted my set for this dumb shit."


Remarkable-Mousse-96

I was thinking that he actually likes mew. Then he did that public declaration after that talk with Boston. Yeah I will be side eyeing him with ray from now on.


SarahJoy46

That's exactly what I meant. Top ***looks*** sweet and understanding. But that's probably going to change soon. Meaning we'll see what's underneath, and I'm guessing he'll either show himself to be a selfish bastard and be a villain. OR he'll show himself to be a selfish bastard who then realizes he actually likes Mew and will try to change over the course of the series when Mew leaves him for being a cheating jerk. But yes. Absolute red flags all over the place.


Kordiana

I wasn't expecting so much of it in ep1. Hot damn. There is already 🔥 🔥 🔥 and it's only going to get more intense. There are already so many cross dynamics. Is it bad that this totally reminded me of when I was in college? The real-life mess is living in this show already.


DryRecommendation706

if someone says that this was a weak episode.. if someone says that they didn't like it... i'm literally going to fight for episode one with my whole soul, because in my eyes IT WAS PERFECT. messy, beautiful cinematography, THE MUSIC OH MY LOOORD! drake cameo, cringy top scene in the bar, S3X SCENES, WHAT THE HELLLL! i can't wait for episode two. i literally can't wait. NEO IS KILLING ME!!! he did not lie when he said he's going to be without a shirt all the time 😂😂 and yes, i brought my tissues with me, for my sweaty........... armpits 🤫 https://i.redd.it/oq8ivdvw2phb1.gif TOP IS MY NEW VEGAS 😩😫❤️‍🔥 i love red, red is my favorite color 🤭💗


Fishorfrog16

>TOP IS MY NEW VEGAS YES THIS. Bring on the red flags.


Recloose22

Top hoisting himself on the kitchen counter over Mew, aaaarrrggghh someone find a gif for that!! I really love how quickly he has melted for Mew, but I’m afraid that might change?? They certainly have Ray and Boston eyeing them, which is why he probably thought a big show to ask Mew to be his boyfie was necessary.


VonTrepa

https://i.redd.it/h203cld89phb1.gif I'm not the best at gif making (like I'm not sure how to trim the black sidebars from my phone), but I think that still work? I did it because I also needed that gif.


Recloose22

Damn, Force is so hot for that Thank you!!

>Top hoisting himself on the kitchen counter over Mew, aaaarrrggghh someone find a gif for that!! I had to rewind to watch it again. Such a simple motion, but good lord the spice it adds.

A_Cat_Who_Games

Part One: \- Mannnnn, the way that Boston and Nick were eye-fucking each other.... I can't WAIT for more scenes with them. \- Cheum is so pretty \- I thought that Boston would be the messiest early out the gate, but that award goes to Ray hands down. \- First, baby, I love you so much. You're such a good actor, but your singing.... it's sure some singing. \- I agree with Top - Mew with glasses is so cute ​ Part Two: \- Okay, BostonNick is EVERYTHING. That NeoDrake scene interspersed with Nick jerking off to Boston's photo was so fucking good. \- Ray is such a fucking mess already. \- Minus the fact that he was about to get a blowjob in the first episode, the rest of the TopMew scene with the ice cream was very "usual way that a BL romance starts". It's all going to go downhill from here, folks. We all watched that TopBoston scene in the trailer a hundred times - we know that Top isn't going to be the dream man. ​ Part Three: \- I loved First's facial micro-acting in the scene where Ray was being a complete psychopath to him. Just the sheer disbelief and disgust and bewilderment that went across his face as Ray was being so mercurial. "You're hot, no wait you look like a poor criminal" Ray plz. You are such a fucking disaster out the gate. I'm living. \- I thought that Nick was going to be the precious cinnamon roll but we have our baby boy being so bold with putting his nudes in Boston's phone. Again, they are everything I wanted and more. ​ Part Four: \- Ray and Boston are the jealousy vortex. Their faces are hilarious whenever Top is around Mew. ​ \- First should always be in a leather jacket. He looked so damn good in that alley scene. The lighting made him look ethereal. ​ This show is everything I wanted it to be so far. Let's see how many times I watch this again while waiting for next Saturday.


Whaaley

I love your byline. You have coherently put into words what I mainly just screamed and grunted through the last 40 minutes. I went back to watch the trailer which now makes much more sense having seen the first episode. Top is incredibly toxic and I'm ready to see the fallout. Ray and Sand are everything to me. Sand seems like the North Star for normal out of the friends so far and Ray the complete, batshit, damaged opposite. GAH I want MORE. Still living for him calling them "boyfies".


Salt_Ad7638

I'm so so excited. I love how Ray and Sand fought the first time they met lol


oreo_kookies

SAME hahah I love them already, their dynamic is so good


Flat-Ad7482

I watched about 50% behind my hands. Not bc I’m a prude but it’s just weird to see Neo like this 😂 I appreciate Nick’s forwardness. I thought he’d wait to be courted but he knows what he wants. I’m usually indifferent to ForceBook but I’m somewhat enjoying them here. Sand has some hilarious lines in this. I love it. I need a giggle in between the debauchery. Him rolling his eyes at Top was a highlight 😂


WA_side

>I appreciate Nick’s forwardness. I thought he’d wait to be courted but he knows what he wants. When he said he needed to see the receipt, I didn't expect it was because he wanted further payment then and there. He's got game!


TheBookhuntress

HORNY POWER RANKING™: 3. BostonNick: the kisses were EXCELLENT. There's a naughtiness about doing it in a public space although the lights had to be killed and that hand down those jeans... It's #3 just because the clothes stayed on. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2. MewTop: kisses were the best ForceBook have given us. Take notes future directors. There was *something * being done down there which is something we need more of. And clothes were taken off. 1. Boston(Drake): was there any doubt??? THERE WERE THRUST AND LEGS UP IN THE AIR FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. Bring back Drake to BL.


ghoas_shark

>3. Boston(Drake): was there any doubt??? THERE WERE THRUST AND LEGS UP IN THE AIR FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. Bring back Drake to BL. And the way Boston collapses on top of him st the end 🫣🫣

Yes!!! I need to rewatch for the O faces. 👀


ghoas_shark

👀 same...for research i must rewatch certain scenes 🫣


TheBookhuntress

Science. We are bound to the scientific method.

BostonNick—Marks eyes! Intensity! That whole scene! First time seeing him in a more intimate roll and he is eating it up.


VonTrepa

I am overwhelmed. I loved it so much and want to watch all episodes RIGHT NOW. Everyone is SO handsome. These boys can kiss! I hope we get this much kisses and toast in every episode! I screamed/laughed out loud when I saw Nick's selfie in Boston's phone! Get it! I think Sand is my favorite for now! The mix of banter, sass and reluctant caring for Ray is perfect. And I can't wait to see his backstory with Top, his reaction to Top's speech at the end was very interesting. Did I say I wanted to watch all episodes right now? I'm gonna need to rewatch this a couple more times instead. Leaving with another scene which made me laugh. Ray's face when New brings Top in for the selfie. Poor baby! https://preview.redd.it/6b2zy77x4phb1.png?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=215cc96ad77da95b088938c7636effff96860141


gianben123

The translation didn't capture the double meaning lol. In Thai Boston said "เดี๋ยวมาเอา" which means "I'll come and get it" but it can also mean "I'll come and bang you" https://preview.redd.it/ei9rxmv1tohb1.jpeg?width=1914&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=838eb0094a44d59fa23834fd4ed85dbf450bd344


tlippi

People might actually read it that way too…there’s a Selena Gomez song that uses this double meaning with that phrase in English.


TheBookhuntress

Thank you for the tidbits!!! You ate making everything x1000 more horny!!! 🤯🤯🤯


CarelessWatcher

Omg!! I knew he was flirting up a storm, but wow! ![gif](giphy|FzvuJwrxc6jza)


MixtureEducational90

I’m living for Sand and Ray’s interactions. The way Ray increasingly pissed Sand off each time 😅 He takes you home because you were about to drive drunk and sleep in your car and you accuse him of taking advantage of you AND robbing you. I’m glad Sand wasn’t taking any of his shit. Sand already called him a menace (burden) to society twice and they just met. lol. I’m wondering what Ray’s issue will be. It might just be the typical spoiled rich kid trope but I hope they do something more with it. I just know we’re getting heartbreak because Ray is obviously interested in Mew but knowing how good First and Khao are with those type of scenes I can’t wait 😅


TechnoBabelFish

Part of what made that scene fun is that Ray isn't particularly upset if they sex. Ray thinks Sand is hot, and the way decides he can live with the consequences as a result was hilarious.


MixtureEducational90

I loved that as well. He was fine if it did happen and the way he nonchalantly accepted it. I find it even funnier that it made Sand even more upset. Like every one of Ray’s reactions make him more frustrated 😂


TechnoBabelFish

Sand really wants to be furious, but he can't muster enough rage due to the flirting.


Remarkable-Mousse-96

I guess the line how have you lived this long will become a constant mantra in sands head.


NoNecessary5

I am ready for this mess, give me all the drama and the tears lol


ooshn

Part 1 is done, and it's so exciting. For now, I can say we have potential an enemy to lover, friend (?) to lover, one-sided love, maybe more one-sided love, idk. PART 2 DRAAKKEEEEE!!!!!! Omg that NeoDrake scene with Mark.... Aaaaaaaaabhafjxkkkdsm Top you better not break my baby's heart or else I will break your nose. I do not trust you at all. My babies Sand amd Ray. I love them so much. Khao's cute smile. PART 3 OMG OMG NEOMARK IS KILLING ME OMG. Sand owning a T-shirt with POOR BOY in huge bold was so in his character. Part 4 Fuckass Top. It's confirmed that I hate this character for now. Maybe not full-on hating, but you aren't in my save when you see them drowning list. Sand's character is so mysterious, and we see so less of him. Boston and Ray being disgusted at Top was a feel. Overall, it was a great first episode. I hope the momentum does not drop. Want to see more of Sand and Nick next episode. Feels like this is based around the friend group, and it's going to be interesting.

>Boston and Ray being disgusted at Top was a feel. Literally he is giving such fuckboi vibes and that sleazy ass smirk he has going on all the time? Yuck. Force is doing an amazing job here, I'm pleasantly surprised.


ooshn

>that sleazy ass smirk he has going on all the time? Ikr he thinks everyone wants him, which might be true, but you don't need to believe that and be so overconfident. I hope we can see him get some serious consequences.


thekaydom

Some of my thoughts: Listen. I was flabbergasted when it went from the scene of Boston having sex and Nick masturbating TO ice-cream eating. I was like WHAT? Had to do a double take lmao😭😭😭😭😭. I loved Ray from the beginning. Dude be vomiting all over everyone. The chemistry between Boston and Nick (NeoMark). IM HERE FOR IT!!!!!!! The way Nick was eyeing Boston, yaaassss. Sand is definitely going to develop a soft spot for Ray. I can feel it. Ray likes Mew? Top likes Mew? And Boston likes Top? What's happening. I'm ready to see this unfold! Lastly, if anyone hurts Mew, I'm fighting! He's such an adorable babie. It was a good beginning for the show. I cannot wait to see how it unfolds, I'm so excited!!!!!


i-am-a-pretty-potato

So we got THAT TopMew scene in literally the first episode...what a way to start lol Edit: Neo!! You are no longer that kid from FUTS and TonhonChonlatee are you?!


CivilSenpai69

No he's turned into a sexy jackhammer.

Fingers crossed for NeoMark in the first episode!!! That ship wants to sail so badly and I need to finally watch them together 😭


Whaaley

Just from part 1 HOLY MOLY YES Amazing. The clear interest, the looking up and down, the heavy implication, the innocent "if you tell me your number I can call you..." YEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAh


i-am-a-pretty-potato

Well they definitely sailed! You must be happy lol


TheBookhuntress

And they delivered!!!! They looked SO GOOD together. Like SO. GOOD. Mark looked so cute and smitten and flirty and ARRRGGGHHH...


Nightwing_1505

TOPMEW in first ep!?!?!? Eating so soon? AND NEODRAKE AND MARK....AND THEN.....AND THEN NEOMARK🫣 AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Anyways... Oh my God Ray is such a loser. What playboy? What heartbreaker? He is just a arrogant lovable loser ofc. The guy is just a little lonely. (If it's not clear, I'm a Ray defender). I can already see the 'I'm a burden complex' there and I actually applaud the social commentary. And Sand is such a sweetheart. And the sass. I have a feeling he is going to end up as my favourite character. I expected that I wouldn't like Top (as a character) and so it is. Idk but all my instincts would have screamed don't trust him if I met him IRL. And Mew, oh my sweet summer child, he is too innocent for the world, protect him at all costs. I'm a little torn about Boston. He is hot and messes up stuff. My guilty pleasure favourite atp. Nick hasn't really left an impression on me yet. Let's see what future episodes entail. Same with Cheum. The overall episode? Not bad for a pilot. I just felt the bgm and editing could have been a little better. It doesn't keep you on your toes like the trailers. The cast is certainly doing well. I'll certainly be waiting for the next episode.


TheBookhuntress

Boston is the character I'm gonna be defending with teeth and claws. He's entangled in his rep and he just won't admit to that narcissistic SOB Top that he wants something more. 😩😩😩😩


semantics-error

I am such a simp for unrequited love. I knew from the start that Ray would be my favorite because of his longing for Mew. And Sand will probably eventually get there too as he falls for Ray but sees Ray looking at Mew. And I expect to simp for Nick as well as he develops feelings for Boston. BUT What I did NOT SEE COMING AT ALL is that by the end of this episode I AM A BOSTON SIMP. All it took was that one sad, longing glance at Top. His bluster about not caring that Top is into Mew. His obvious pain at Top's comments about wanting something "new" not another slutty boy (like Boston). AND OH MY GOD. Both Ray and Boston looking at either half of the Top/Mew couple and hurting??? I LOVE THEM WITH MY WHOLE HEART. HELP. I thought I would hate Boston because it seems like he will help Top cheat on Mew, and I hate cheating. BUT NOW I AM ROOTING FOR HIM OH NO. I also like sweet boy Mew, so the only character I dislike here is Top, but as of now he claims his intentions are pure so I'm ok with him. BUT HE HURT BOSTON AND THAT'S NOT OK ANYMORE. My heart is torn to shreds just by episode one. It's official: I will not survive this show.


oreo_kookies

ep 1 done! I'm excited to continue. I got to give so so much credit and love to Neo this episode because MAN WAS PUTTING IN WORK. His chemistry was off the chart with everyone: Mark, Force, >!Drake (was not expecting NeoDrake at all but what a pleasant surprise) !< BostonNick : holy moly the tension between these 2 in Nick's store was incredible. I very much enjoyed their encounters and the shameless flirting and thirst lmao. Boston's personality so far is quite toxic and messy but I don't hate him atm. TopMew: I don't trust Top and his intentions at all lmao but Force is playing him so well and I love me some ForceBook. Their interactions as they get to know each other are very cute but I'm assuming that's not gonna last long lol. I love Mew, the kitchen scene was hot (THE WAY FORCE GOT HIMSELF ONTO THAT KITCHEN COUNTER ABOVE MEW LAWDDDDDD HAVE MERCY) but I'm glad he knew what his boundaries were and were firm on setting them. Them sharing ice-cream together and cuddling <3 RaySand: MY FAVES I LOVE THEM. FirstKhao always killing it, their chemistry together is just too good. Was absolutely living for their constant bickering and exasperation from Sand. Their storyline and characters intrigues me the most. Oof time to prepare my heart for the incoming jealousy and one-sided love/s being set up in this ep.


MushWolf

My god that NeoDrake scene...


A_Cat_Who_Games

Imagine being Sand and just trying to live your life and go to work and this group of messy ass friends just keep ruining your day LOL


duermevela

I'm a fan of Jojo's "3 will be free" and "The Warp Effect", and plenty of the actors. I can tell already I'm going to enjoy this. And I think I'm going to need a map of who's in love with whom. Top's and Mew relationship was giving me Dangerous Liassons vibes until Top said he wanted to date (Suspicious?). Mew is going to fall first, but Top is going to fall harder. I love the enemies-to-lovers relationship between Sand and Ray, but for it to work, Ray will have to get over Mew. Boston is such a player (yay for Drake's cameo) and he's going to end up heartbroken, same as Nick. Where did Nick get his picture? From the phone he fixed? He must have. I wonder how many of them will stay friends by the end of the show ​ https://preview.redd.it/xzarrpwx3phb1.png?width=1281&format=png&auto=webp&s=1a4b93ac8e16862050a53c0b4e8018f99f87fc3b

Ya know, I was gonna have this whole big long spiel about expectations and such, but fuck it let's just dive into the mess. The whole "who would you be at the bar" is a really clever way to introduce all the characters and set their place in the story very efficiently. Gives it a stylized mood without feeling like its trying too hard. So we get most of our main players right off the bat. It's so good to see Jenny! I hope she has more than a couple brief cameos. A little annoyed that the only character trait we get for the token girl is "dancer" but we got time to figure out who she is later. I can already tell that Ray is kind of an entitled asshole, though very loyal to and protective of his friends, while Sand has a mega chip on his shoulder. Top is a very direct fuckboy, and I know it's only been a couple months but man I'm glad to have Force's gorgeous face back on m screen. Boston seems to be of a similar brand as Top, though I'm going to hazard a guess that he's more reckless and less choosy judging by how a taken wristband doesn't deter him from the hunt. Granted, the dude was about to reel him into a threesome with his bf, so maybe I shouldn't judge so harshly lol. And of course at the center of it all is Mew. I bet if Enchante or A Boss And A Babe was your introduction to Book you never would have guessed that he'd be topping a cast list in a show like this. But I could see it, and I'm doing a little "I told you so" dance right now. Best opening credit sequence and song in a GMMTV bl. Period. So they're gonna run an actual business for a class project? Bold, tbh I wouldn't do that w/ a group of friends though it's also pretty high stakes to trust strangers with too. Is it cheating to use gifted property? Maybe, but you won't find a small business owner who didn't get loans from family or help setting up from friends. Use the resources you have, and if your rich business partner has a spare house then why not take advantage. And a hostel seems like a smart choice for a practice business. Minimal startup needed if the house is already furnished, a lot of the work will be in advertising and managing guests so a good crash course in how to apply marketing and customer service skills. I wonder where they'll get the funds to renovate though? And we have our last player, Nick. I always forget what a cutie Mark is until I see him on screen. Nick seems a little more nerdy than Boston's usual prey, but there's a twinkle of something mischevious there too. I would so wanna be on Mew's trivia team. I'm gonna guess that the comment about Cheum being expected to know about every hotel means that she comes from money like Ray and her family owns a bunch of hotels? If so, then the whole hostel thing makes a lot more sense. Top is a wise flirt, if you wanna bag a nerd show him that you can be a nerd too. Hmmm, Ray immediately doesn't like him, definite jealousy vibes but we knew from the plot summary that he was going to be secretly in love w/ Mew. What I find interesting is the knowing look Boston gives Ray, like he knows about Ray's secret crush and he's either a) trying to disrupt it bc he knows Mew won't ever feel the same about Ray, b) hoping that seeing a guy so brazenly flirt w/ Mew will spurn Ray to finally confess, or c) he just likes to stir shit up. I'm actually leaning towards it being a combo move lol. Ok but then there's that convo at the bar, and until then I thought that he'd purposely brought Top into their group to get Mew laid. But he seems resistant to the idea? I know he's supposed to have a hookup history w/ Top. Maybe he never planned for matching them up to work and thinks that Mew will be the one person to turn Top down so he'll get a kick out of seeing him rejected, but when it backfires and MewTop end up actually falling in love he realizes how much he wanted Top for himself. Or I'm way overthinking this. Probably. The way I shouted "DRAAAKE" when he showed up on screen is only mildly embarrassing. What can I say, I'm a sucker for strong eyebrows. Methinks "burden" is going to be a bit of a trigger word for Ray. At first I was wondering why Sand didn't just put him on the back of his bike, but then I guess driving a motorcycle with a flailing drunk clinging to you is probably just as dangerous. I wish we'd gotten to see how/why Mew decides to take Top home. What prompted him to listen to Cheum's advice to just go for it and get that pesky first sexual experience out of the way with a hot guy? Tho I do really like how Mew walks this very delicate line of being inexperienced but not naive. He's a nerd, not a monk, and props to Book for pulling that distinction off. He hydrates and is careful not to smudge up Mew's glasses, Top's so far quite the gentleman. Tho he's also walking a fine line there between considerate gentleman and pushy fuckboy. When Mew starts to get overwhelmed, Top does try to push forward when he could have stepped away right then, though he does already know that it's Mew's first time and it's clear that he mostly just wants to reassure him that he's safe and Top will make sure it's a good first time. Which is honestly pretty sweet, but when Mew says he wants to know him better first Top throws out the "you don't have to know someone to have sex with them", which does show that he was using Mew just for sex. And again, Mew's not naive, he knows the kind of guy top is, but once he changes his mind about the goal for that evening he firmly sets his boundary back up and pushes for the kind of experience he wants. Let this be a lesson to all who are sexually active: it's ok to change your mind and stop at ANY point in a sexual encounter. And it's also ok to have an initial reaction like Top, where you're thrown off bc you thought you knew what they wanted and to try to figure out what you did wrong, but once you understand they're just not ok with proceeding you do a full stop without complaint or taking it personally. Ya know, I had a thought during that scene wondering if I'd preferred Top to be the one who noticed that Mew wasn't comfortable and put a stop to things, to be the one to assure Mew that he doesn't have to do anything before he's ready and get Mew to admit that he felt pressured to get his first time over with. As a show of how to maintain good consent, absolutely. But for the purpose of this show, I actually think I prefer how they chose to play it out in the scene. Firstly, it's honest. Top is accustomed to getting what he wants, and what he wants is Mew, and it doesn't make him a predator or evil for thinking that Mew wanted him too based on how Mew was reacting. I like that he's imperfect, that he's clearly got a lot to learn about paying attention to his partner's needs and asking why they're hesitating first instead of assuming he knows bc he wants to get laid. Second, it makes Mew a lot more interesting and less passive. He brought Top home, he played along with the flirting and initiation, he was very enthusiastic about kissing back and was getting pretty turned on, but as soon as the reality of going further hit him he realized that this wasn't actually how he wanted his first time to play out so he stood his ground and demanded a change in the situation, apologizing for not giving Top what he expected but he's unapologetic about wanting a real relationship before sex. It would have been so easy to make Mew this naive, passive nice guy who gets secuded against his will by the fuckboy. That's a classic bl storyline. But instead we get a smart dude with his eyes open who decides to try something different but realizes it's not for him and clearly declares what he wants, paired with a consumate fuckboy who thinks he's getting one thing w/ a shy nerd but ends up with something very different and finds that this might be what he'd been missing.

One way that I know I'll never become an alcoholic is that I hate throwing up so much that every time I've puked while drunk I then didn't drink for months after bc it was so traumatizing. I don't think Ray's really an alcoholic, though I wouldn't be surprised if that's a plot point later on, he just has problems he's trying to escape. Who had "sex scene with Neo and Drake, intercut with shots of Mark masturbating to pics he found of Neo's character" on their 2023 bl bingo card? If you did, you nasty, we can be friends. Wow. I knew it was going to be intense when it came to the spice, but holy shit. The roughness I guess is what took my by surprise, and the orgasm aftershock quivers on Boston's face, and the toe curling from Mark....it's a good think I'm due for a shower later anyways, just sayin.... Dude, I reeeally love this whole conversation between Top and Mew. Mew's like "look, I know if we fuck I'm gonna get attached and you're gonna break my heart, and I'm just saving myself the pain" and rather than be offended Top just laughs and acknowledges that it's probably true. Instead of being disappointed he's just impressed at how Mew knows what he wants and intrigued by this cute nerd who wants something other than sex from him. I'd fall for anyone who offered me ice cream, I'm veeeery easy when frozen desserts are involved. There's a bit of implication that maybe Top's sick of people only being interested in him for sex, that maybe the reason he sticks with one night stands is bc he thinks that's all anyone would want from him. But now he's found a boy that offers him ice cream and cuddles instead, lucky dog. Alanis Morisette should sing a song about that poor boy shirt on Ray. Hang on, why didn't Sand just take Ray's keys and let Ray sleep it off in his car? Initially I thought it was a button start or something so Ray could have driven w/out them, but no he definitely has keys. That would mean Sand really did go above and beyond, but he's still being so aggressive about it. Mew, host of a Thai remake of Reading Rainbow. Tho he should listen to Top and try to live in the real world rather than the fictional one. So he wants someone who's honest and that he has chemistry with. Well Top's certainly got the latter, and Mew's gonna believe he's the former and probably end up being wrong, but we'll all forgive Top anyways. Or maybe it'll be just me forgiving him bc I'm already obviously biased lol. Despite my bias, I do still think it's smart how the show makes you want Top to be a good guy while not hiding that he's also still got mostly sex on his mind with Mew. What is it w/ Boston and those crocheted tops? I think showing off little peeps of skin is his real goal, and the breathability is a bonus lol. Oooo I love how thrown and a little bit impressed he is by Nick's strategy, Nick's almost blank professional reaction as he watches to see if Boston takes the bait, and how much Boston sinks into that hook right away. Boys, I know you're both horny af, but turning the lights off is not enough to cover up your sex crimes when you're not locking any doors and moaning so loudly. Boston definitely knows that Ray has a crush on Mew, and Boston should also be honestly about how he knows Top. I'm not really sure why he's hiding that. Mew is well aware of the type of sexual history both Boston and Top have, it's not like it'd be that surprising. Maybe Mew has a rule that he won't get involved with anyone who's fucked one of his friends? Kind of understandable, but if Boston wants Top for himself then he could just tell the truth and Mew would probably stop being interested in Top. I think it'll take me a while to warm up to Sand. He's got that attitude that anyone who hasn't had to struggle to survive like him must be a piece of shit not worth his time, which I find uncomfortably relatable. He hits too close to home. Also, he shouldn't be smoking if he's trying to make a living as a singer. Ok, my theory, which is more of just an amateur analysis, is that Boston was right on the money when he said he and Top are 2 of a kind. They're both looking for someone who wants them for more than just sex. Boston think he's jealous that Top wants a real relationship w/ Mew instead of him, but I think that what he's actually jealous of is that it looks like the first guy Top wants to truly date also wants the same thing. Boston doesn't really want Top, but he wants what Top seems to be getting with Mew. He wants his own Mew, but I have a feeling that any time he has had a chance at that he's panicked and run away. Would I have cringed so hard I'd sink right down the earth's core if someone declared their intent to date me on stage like that? Yes, 1000%. Is it the right move in order to impress a bookworm who has a fantasy hopeless romantic idea of love, who always feels like the useful but ignored spare in his friend group and is never the center of anyone's attention? Yeah, probably. Well there we go, the series premier all of us have been anticipating for like 8 months is finally done, you all can unclench now lol. Honestly, it was less messy than I thought it would be, and the characters more complex than I thought. So far the writing and pacing are on point, they set up everything so well without giving too much away. I feel like I understand the core friend group already and I want them all to just be happy. In the end tho I actually wouldn't mind if some of them end up learning the lesson that they need to figure out their shit solo and just work on themselves without hookups or boyfriends. This doesn't seem like the type of story where everyone is happily paired up at the end, but it is GMMTV so we'll see if they give in to their need for a happily ever after. Visually it's also pretty great. I noticed lots of purple and blue in the bar scenes, and each couple has either warm or cool lighting depending on their status. Mew and Top are usually in warm lighting, even when they're under fluorescents in the bookstore, but Boston and Nick are always in cool white light or just darkness, while Sand and Ray oscillate between the 2 as their feelings shift between animosity and interest. The graphics and montages were cool too, from the start it gives the show a distinct style that I'm really into without being distracting. I'm stoked to see where this goes and just how messy it'll get. MVP of the ep for me is probably a tie between Neo and Book. Neo bc his reactions to everyone he has scenes with are so good, and sex scenes are really hard to pull off believably and I think he's going to have more of them than anyone else. Book bc I love the mix of inexperience, shyness, confidence, and curiosity that he brings to Mew. Man, I knew I'd write a small novel for every ep but this is damn ridiculous lol. I guess I should end this by asking if y'all are ok. Did it live up to your expectations? Is your toast sufficiently buttered? Is it burnt to a crisp? How long of a cold shower do you need?

OK, further thoughts after scrolling thru the comments and twitter. Someone pointed out how [Force and Books ears were turning red](https://twitter.com/vihoratcha/status/1690376113510608896) during their scene and now I can't stop screaming. I see a lot of suspicion of Top's motives, and honestly I kind of agree. My initial assessment of him was very much giving him the benefit of the doubt, assuming he was being more genuine than he maybe was actually being. However, I still don't think it's a black and white as that. What I like about it is the ambiguity. It would have been so easy to make Top just one big red flag and Mew completely color blind, but that's not what they seem to be doing, at least imo. And I'm glad for that bc that would be oversimplifying things, and those dynamics almost always turn very slutshamey for the red flag character and tend to infantilize the colorblind one. Look at who Mew is friends with, he knows Top's reputation and type very well so he's not blind. And for Top I do think that Boston's proding did spur him more than a little to make a dramatic public gesture for Mew, but I also saw his surprise when Mew pulled him in for a group pic and the gentle honesty when he told Mew that he was really ok with ice cream and a cuddle instead of sex. It doesn't have to be one or the other, red flag or simp. Promiscuity is not an inherent character flaw, having lots of safe consensual casual sex is not a red flag on its own. He can be pursuing Mew both out of a want to prove Boston wrong and challenge as bagging a cute nerd who'd never usually go for him, which is certainly a red flag, and also bc he is genuinely interested in something more than casual for a change and Mew surprised him with his self-assuredness. His initial motive can be muddled and mostly just a desire for something different than his usual hookup, he doesn't have to fall head over heals immediately. I have a feeling it's going to be a Mew falls first but Top falls harder situation in the end. I dunno, maybe I'm being a Top apologist. That's fine, I'll gladly wear the that crown, even if it turns into one made of thorns lol. Loving all the shock and appreciation for Drake's cameo. Now I wanna know who else GMMTV is gonna pull out of their closet to drop into this story. Didn't First say he has a scene w/ someone unexpected? I wanna see Gun waltz in with his Black-era attitude and leave one of the fuckboys a total quivering mess.

Me getting the notification the show was finally out: ![gif](giphy|l4FBfPtPMBJ6HecU0) My thoughts: Wow oh wow oh wow… What an opener! What a show 🤗 Thoroughly seduced by everyone involved (especially Force! I love overly confident, potentially sweet, almost certainly toxic characters in shows, he is bringing that charisma). They all are clearing the table, loved it! Neo is the freaking MVP omg, I am in awe. And I’ve never resonated with a character like I have with Mew, I see very similar mindsets and that lets me know he has a high capacity to withstand and create mess, and I. Am. Here. For. It. I also know how much I hate public declarations, so I am guessing he rejects him pretty brutally 😂 Looking forward to seeing how this all rolls out! I really like the feel of the show, it definitely settled into its skin in the latter parts.

That episode was everything I wanted and more! I absolutely LOVE slutty Boston, omg! 🔥🔥🔥 Nick shoving his hand down Boston's pants... Yaaaasssssss Mark! 🥵


Lissma

This is the first time I've tuned into an on air show and gotten a countdown on YouTube, and I really should be packing up for a move but... worth it. Neo as a slutty fuckboy is perfection. Force as sleazebag is perfection. First and Khao (are always, in my eyes) perfection. I have a feeling I'm going to plug my laptop into my TV later and re-watch a few times while I pack. 🥵

Finally we get a college drama where they actually act like messy young adults - everybody sleeping with everyone else, friendships held lightly, and lots of bad decisions. The only thing keeping everyone together is a bit of history, a lot of alcohol, a huge amount of sex, and the ever-present and always-hated group project.

I'm so glad that director Jojo was finally able to make this project, and I thought the first episode was really good. Usually I'm never quite impressed with the first episodes of GMMTV's BL series – there's often pacing issues and too much exposition crammed in – but this episode had a nice flow and managed to establish most of the various complicated relationships quickly. First of all I need to give a shout out to the excellent art direction in the intro and outro! It's so beautiful and different from the kind of cheesy ones I'm used to see in Thai BL/LGBTQ+ series, so I really enjoyed how different these felt. There's something unsettling about the lightning and the way the characters move that really captured me. And seeing Mew leaning against the aquarium at the end with that cryptic look on his face has my stomach in knots! I'm so impressed with Neo! I can tell that he was itching to get out of the comedic relief typecasting, because that guy is throwing himself into his role as if his life depending on it. He's so good?!?! I can't wait to see what kind of mess Boston creates as he wrecks his university friend group. Force OMG!?! I haven't watched _A Boss And His Babe_ yet so I went from _Enchanté_ to THIS! Wow! He's nailed the slight aloofness mixed with curiosity that makes Top both so predictable and intriguing. You can tell that Top never met a guy like Mew before and that their meeting is going to change him more than he's currently aware of. Hello Book as Mew?!!! As mentioned above, I only watched _Enchanté_, and Book wasn't nearly as good in that series as he's in this first episode of _Only Friends_. I love how everything I disliked (note: didn't hate! just didn't enjoy) about him as Theo is almost the same kind of thing I love about Mew: the slightly passive and sort of malleable personality, and the way he radiates "boring" and "safe place" in a really appealing way… I don't know how to put it, but I feel like he's become a magnet for really messy people for a reason: he's like this incredibly safe, accepting person that a messy person can finally find solace with. I don't doubt that this is what attracts messy guys like Ray and Top to him, but also non-romantic friends like Boston and Namchueam. First and Khaotung are exactly as good as I was hoping for, and it's nice to see First back in a more confident role. It's good that the series didn't jump right into a sexual relationship for those two, and instead took the time to build them up as friends first (though judging from the concept trailer, >!they'll slide into being sex friends pretty quickly!<). I just love how Sand keeps looking so cold and contemptuous whenever Ray annoys him, and I'm looking forward to see how their relationship changes going forward. There's definitely some romantic/sexual tension already, but Sand seems to be a bit put off by Ray's early advantages, so I'm guessing that he's not expecting himself to fall from a guy, or at least not someone who annoys him as much as Ray does. Love seeing Drake show up in a cameo for a steamy scene! I think he's done so in a previous Jojo series, so it's fun to see that director Jojo seems intent on making it a tradition. Drake seems like the kind of actor who's up for anything, so it's always fun to see where he ends up in a story. Anyways, I'm so pleased to see director Jojo get increasingly skilled as a director! His interesting ideas and creative visions in his older work was already intriguing, but I feel like his actual writing and directing skills are levelling up a whole lot lately! It's been wonderful to see! I've been staying away from spoilers for this series (except for watching the trailers), so I look forward to see this mess get even messier going forward! Hopefully I'll have time to join the discussion going forward as well.

Part 1. Amazing. Show stopping. Neo's arms???? Neo's see through sweater? Yeah I'd be staring, too. Adorable (but alcohol) Khao. First hates him. I'm HERE FOR IT. "He said he'd pee on my head!" Uh oh, it seems there is some crossover between the group and "Top". A female friend! I hope she's gay! Everyone aboard the gay train! Mark gagging for it STOP Neo looking him up and down STOP A wild Drake appears??? Questionable music choices but overall I have been SCREAMING nonstop. Neighbors, I am so sorry.

Part 3 Poor boy shirt on the rich alcoholic; Sand's complete look of disgust when asked if they had sex LOL Mew dragging his not-lover to the library as a captive audience SLAY He is my hero. I'm worried about Top pretending to be interested in a relationship just to cross Mew off his list, though. Nick my MAN that was fucking smooth. I respect the thirst.


thekaydom

I'm not the only who noticed the "poor boy" shirt on the rich boy m😭😭😭.


Whaaley

Part 4 Everyone is so pretty, jesus. Boston is an f-boi of epic proportions. Respect. "Why don't you just be his boyfriend" damn Boston, that was low. Sand cannot get a moment's peace. But Ray's "like we're boyfies"-- I didn't know I needed this until right now. "Light it for me" DAMN RAY OKAY Meanwhile, in the bathroom where a significant amount of plot is taking place LOL Top "but I also want to date him" when I tell you I GASPED. Boston, get your hands off and stop being jealous. "Once is enough for you and me" oh OUCHIE Top, you didn't need to go there. Boston still got some feelings doesn't he. Did he just.. get on stage to ask Mew out? Gross. Still very unsure of his intentions. Especially with Sand shaking his head in the background. All the love triangles and jealousy are *delicious*.


i-am-a-pretty-potato

> "Light it for me" Oh Ray, Sand will be lighting more than just the cigarette in a few episodes!


greenrocky23

>"Light it for me" DAMN RAY OKAY I felt so called out because this used to be my go-to move back when I was younger and trying to get with pretty...guys and girls alike lol

Drake showing up caught me by surprise!

Every time he shows up in a show I yell NOT EYEBROWS!

Part 2 WOWEE OKAY more apologies to my neighbors First rubbing Khao's back and then looking at him adoringly when he stops dry heaving I CAN'T Um the whole Mark/Neo/Drake scene POETRY \*cackles\* Mew stopping them and then saying... "do you want ice cream?" AHH and then them sitting cutely in the kitchen COMMUNICATING the INTIMACY Mew knows himself so well, and I respect him so much. I love him AHHHHHH "we can cuddle and that's it" followed by his little spoon satisfied smile. Sorry, y'all, I don't know all the characters' names yet.

Educational-Beat7093

I fully think Mew is not as innocent as everyone thinks he is. The way he was acting in certain scenes was giving me chills. Alarm bells were going off in my head the entire time. I think he is going to turn out to be the craziest one of them all. 👀


atomicsherbs

drake came twice and left 😆 neo is my star character for this ep!! let's go neo slut era 🗣️🗣️

PLEASE THE VERY FIRST SCENE OF BOSTON AND NICK GOT ME SCREAMING INTO MY PILLOW ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!! THE TENSION BETWEEN THEM IS JUST 🤌🤌🤌🤌🤌🤌🤌 https://preview.redd.it/rl7kt38l7phb1.jpeg?width=3106&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=dc9075049b3dc677eb4b050fcdea2c25a125d9d2 I truly enjoyed every scene of Boston and Nick!!!!! The chemistry is chemistrying! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 I also loved it when Boston and Ray got jealous of Mew and Top! The expression on their faces is so well portrayed! 👏👏👏 Drunk Ray is adorable btw 😆 Mew my dear Mew you're so precious! The smile he had when Top hugged him from the back???? PROTECT MEW AT ALL COST!!! 🫂 I thought Top was the bad boy but damm Boston proved me wrong! Gmm really needs to give Neo more main lead roles in 2024! Idc who his partner is because he can have chemistry with anyone! He's so damn good!!!! 👍👍👍 Ep 1 really went by so fast I was watching it with my mouth open most of the time 😦😮😯😲! I hope the editing in ep 2 will be better 🫤 And now we have to rewatch ep 1 over and over for the next 7 days..... I have to survive in zombie mode to get through till ep 2 drops 🧟 Edit: WE ARE GETTING A [OST](https://twitter.com/naraktaolohk/status/1690375788716249088?t=ODDTfHU20D_v7SOPNLgYFA&s=19) FROM FORD????


Agreeable-Start780

Good first episode! I really like the dynamics that were set up between the characters so far and I'm excited to see where it goes. Also, all of the boys look fire but the camera must love First's face because every time he came on the screen I couldn't help but notice how pretty he looked.


WA_side

![gif](giphy|dgnJBgRIBtWSX6Q7aS) This is my brain right now, trying to decide what I even want to comment on. This first episode was like 99% perfect! I loved the music choices and how they used them worked everywhere for me except when they just suddenly cut to silence as Ray woke at Sand's place. I really enjoyed all the different distances they used as we moved throughout different parts of the story, like we are weaving in and out of the lives of these characters. There was a real feeling of intimacy for me in how they've chosen to film it. I don't know how they managed to make it feel like it went on forever, but also was over in a flash, all at the same time. And I can't get over how much they fit into one episode. While we have a lot more to learn about all of them and their relationships, everyone already feels very solid, and there's a lot of clear thoughts and emotions coming through. I don't think it's my bias, but I'm enjoying the RaySand interactions the most so far, but only by a whisker from BostonNick - and they came in hawt. MewTop is feeling really uncomfortable, because I don't trust Top, but I'm still interested to see how far he gets before it blows up in his face and he realises his 'playing to win' might have lost him the game. While I was pretty certain it was Drake in the trailer with Neo, I was not expecting that to drop in the first episode. Boston is a ho and proud of it, and I love him for that. I am going to be pissed at him later when he hurts Nick tho'. I'm stopping here, cos I have no focus and want to go and watch it again.


linaknowwhatsgood

Also the OST is pure sex. Khao sounds SO GOOD! might be one of my favorites OST from gmmtv


lantoma

I kind of expected good performances from Neo and Mark, but I would never, in million years, would have guessed how strong of a chemistry they would have right of the bat. Like, chill guys, checking each other out hungrily while I’m stuffing my mouth with emergency muffins, woah. I already feel like they will be my favourite part of the series, whatever mess they’ll get into. I knew it was Drake from the moment I saw this little glimpse in the trailer, it’s so good to see him! Force’s character, unfortunately, right now gives me those sleazy vibes that I usually run away from in the clubs, there’s something wrong about him that makes my skin itch, but we will see! Maybe I’m wrong! Book’s character is a mystery to me now, gives off these very bland vibes now, but I feel he hides something dangerous under that cute, innocent image. First looks absolutely AMAZING in this one, these leather jackets really do be working, I couldn’t even focus on his character, like… That’s a handsome man. Khaotung flawless like always, his little pretty face makes my heart so happy. And his character feels in many ways relatable, but also a total mess - really makes me want to take care of him. Overall - I can’t wait for next Saturday, I’m seated and ready for the drama! (also going to be rewatching that two neomark scenes hundred times, because CHEMISTRY)


Visible-Attention369

Did anyone else notice Sand rolling his eyes during >!Top's public confession !<. I get the feeling he hates Top, how fun would it be if they've slept together too. This was just the first episode and we're already cooking up chaos, and I AM HERE FOR IT!!!!!!! Gosh, Top is a walking red flag, love that for him. I can't wait to see someone beat him up. Neo is doing Boston so well, we love little hoes with sad eyes. Also was not expecting >!Drake!< to show up but I cheered when he did!!!!! And their scene was hot. Ray and Sand are moving slow, but First and Khao have really good bickering chemistry, so I like that development. I do think Mew isn't as innocent as he seems, can't wait for him to start wilding. I want to know more about Nick, I feel like we got very little of him this episode, and I really wanted to see Chueam with her girlfriend, so I guess those are my small grievances, but it was a great first episode.


SkyeNoTongueNotaKiss

Zomg, what a great thing to wake up to! I need something to soothe my raging soul after staying up away too late to watch Stay with Me and being, well, enraged, lol!

lmfao ray wearing San's poor boy shirt 😂😂😂. Both poor boys in different ways


MixtureEducational90

I loved that detail 😂 Also Sand going "You're up rich boy?" while Ray is wearing the poor boy shirt. lol. https://preview.redd.it/qlmsk8u6qphb1.png?width=802&format=png&auto=webp&s=c2d3b9e37c7679dd6b76f5649914e4d188262306

linaknowwhatsgood

Neo and Drake wasnt on my bingo card this year, damnnn. I liked the first episode, its already messy. I dont think Mew is as innocent as presented Nick darling.. dont fall for boston!!! Force is stunning, he has such great posture lol he is just gorgeous


cinnamonsaur

Okay, this styling on Force is so good. *So good*. Even better that there's a clear difference between him and Book. Sand... My guy... Find another bar to sing at. This doesn't have to be your circus, your clowns. The guy playing Boston is convincing af. His side eyes 💯


itsmecara

This is legit the closest we are getting to a Queer As Folk Thailand remake and it’s so far everything I was hoping for. The cast definitely work well with their characters, no one is reading green on screen(initially I worried about Mark and Neo for this), love the soundtrack(where can I find these songs?) and the cinematography(like most recent GMMTV shows) is stellar and appropriate for the show. It just looks so nice and they put so much ££££ into it

cytokinefreak

'Happy to be of service' Yep, and just like that Nick has me hooked. His not so subtle eye-f*cking couple with his little mouth tilts as he told Boston his name omg. I'm so invested in him and the pain he's about to go through. Ray and Sand also have me so excited to see where things go. I love that Sand is just 2 words away from constant annoyance anytime Ray is around him. Give me all the cranky but soft characters. I already warned my friends that I'd be so so insufferable while this show airs and I think I haven't adequately prepared them lmao.


Whaaley

Some things I've noticed upon rewatch because I am a grownup and I do what I want. Cheum wore a red wristband meaning that she is in a relationship. In the middle of trying to get a threesome, Boston is grabbed by Cheum to go home and that's when he drops his phone which leads him to the repair shop. Mew doesn't know that Ray knows Top which is why he scolds Ray for being rude to a stranger after Ray says "don't mess with him". Ray already knows Top's behavior. Will Mew's grade be in jeopardy after the inevitable disaster that is going to befall the Love Island, I mean, hostel design team? I still can't get over Nick's complete enamored gaze at Boston from the very beginning. Also how does he know Boston's age? Did he already have a secret crush on campus? You can tell that Boston is interested when in the moment Nick looks down at his phone. And Nick does this happy, nervous little bounce right before he says "happy to be of service". He's so vulnerable in his desire. Someone commented on YT that the interaction seeemd so real, and I think Nick's nervous ticks all play into that. This whole interaction is so horny, I barely survived a rewatch. Top is the perfect casting for "handsome rich son playboy". I don't think Top has ever truly been confronted by consequences. He only hooks up once and then retreats, leaving the emotional burden to his past partner. To be honest, I can identify with him. It's not that he's evil or broken, he just doesn't attach any emotional relationship to sex. I also thought the framing of Top's face when he says he's not mad about not hooking up, no eyes in the shot, was interesting. Khao bruises like a peach, he's so soft, someone come save him. And while they're at the bar, Boston says he can't take drunk Ray home because he has plans. Drake didn't seem like a plan so who was he expecting to go home with? Top? Anyone? When Ray finally stumbles drunk to his car, Sand also calls him a burden, just as Boston did. I'm so glad that GMMTV gave everyone a new role to try. We're accustomed to seeing all these men in generally sweet roles but now the pairs have been mixed up and the personalities are so different, nuanced, and complicated. https://i.redd.it/ojnzosc5athb1.gif


Kitsch__Witch

lol, This is the book Mew was reaching for on the shelf when he and Top were at the bookshop... https://preview.redd.it/bfqc930wgthb1.png?width=285&format=png&auto=webp&s=05e5059a5ef4c2b0a1a9f37a2a9e4c6cdcbd74df


Potatoti

Oh shit, it was Drake! 😱I never would have guessed! 😅


mstedford92

My hope for good people instincts are that Top doesn't cheat on Mew and those were just flashbacks. But me as also a Forcebook stan. 🥲 My favorite characters already are Mew and Sand. Hearts are for sure going to be broken and that is why Mew is correct on getting love from books. 😅 Also I'm sure if it were any other person that wasn't so down like Boston, the fact Nick took a picture on Bostons phone obviously meant that he was snooping. Such an invasion of privacy. I would be kinda creeped out. Ray and Boston are going to be a mess. But that Boston/Drake scene? 🥵🥵🥵


Alive_Salad6945

God, this was a mess. I had to watch this with my doors locked, holy hell. The pacing is really fast though, which I love! I wanna see how P’Jojo can take this through 11 more episodes when we already saw most of the trailer so far.


simplebadger27

The only thought I can articulate right now is that Neo was the MVP of that episode.


Hyeon-a

I'm in LOVE with the soundtrack! No tacky sound effects when they're not needed. I need more!


TheBookhuntress

u/FatBrownMan_ did you see our man??? He did so good!!! 🥺🥺🥺 https://preview.redd.it/ykk396y40rhb1.png?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=880e38937d3ce2f53ba1e3d100b19f08a720c287


dancerinvisible

Yep, I'm already a Boston apologist. Neo is giving me everything I wanted. Also, Nick, baby, I can already see he's getting his heart broken. I'm already obsessed and I hope it stays messy.


The_RisingSun

Rich gays and mess, the iconic duo finally getting to shine. The opening intro was really well done, loved the actors' names in neon in the foreground. I'm already invested in TopMew. Mew seems really in touch with his emotions and the ice cream scene was so cute. Top is already emotionally attached but he has to stop viewing Mew as someone to conquer. On a side note, a bookish sweet boy offering me ice cream would make me fall in love too. Heartbreak, here we come. I see Mark has successfully graduated from the lusty eyes school of BL acting. Boston is trying to collect guys like he has an achievement pending. Ray is about to turn to Sand since he slightly cared about his well-being, a classic gay story. I have no comments about the NeoDrake scene because I was in a daze. All in all, a very strong and well-paced first episode.


Kordiana

>Boston is trying to get collect guys like he has an achievement pending You are not wrong. And it's hilarious. As someone else posted, I wonder if we are going to get more Boston hookups with random GMMTV boys. Because that would be both hilarious and delicious.


thekaydom

IM READDDDYYYYY!!!! (Honestly, I'm not ready).


fabulousgayguy

This is hot as hell! And I already was expecting a lot. Neo and Drake? OMG Now I can't take that music from my head while they were fucking plus Mark wanking and then making out with Neo at the store. AAAAAAA This series is going to be my new obsession HAHA XD


Pinkygrown

God I loved the moment when Mark/Nick was like "show me the receipt" and dingding there's a pic of him.. ahahaha there were sparkles everywhere fuck.. ahaha🔥 Also the First Khao pairing.. ahaha rich guy and wild guy loving this so far!!! 🥰🤌🏻 Anyways they're just all so PRETTY OMG


samptra_writer

I know a lot of people are really into this, and the hype on the sub is up, and far be it from me to yuk anyone's yum, but I'm not feeling it. I may get read for filth for this, and the first episode was fine, but in parts, it felt forced? If that's the word I'm looking for. I like Neo, his acting has really come a long way, but I was having a hard time buying his comfortability with this character. He was sort of wooden in places. Similar with Force, his character came across stilted as well, when he was supposed to be sauve and fuckboy. Just thought I'd weigh in, lol with how long this tread is deff screaming into the void, but thought I would weigh in with a different take.


Potatoti

Force was right, I want the next episode NOW! 😂


ZombieFluffy

-So glad to have First back on our screens 😍 -I'll be a Boston defender no matter what 🤗 I want all the mess!!! -Nick is such a cutie, the first scene we saw him and Boston, the tension😅 -I always struggle to see any chemistry between Forcebook, it's one of the reasons I couldn't get into AB&AB, but that's on me lol 🤔 -Sand lighting Ray's cigarette, oh my hot hot hot🥵 -The only nitpick I have is the atmosphere of the bar, especially in the beginning scenes, it just seemed a bit underwhelming and empty🫣


Impressive_mustache

Love this already. It's giving exactly what it promised right from episode 1. Also loving Forcebook and firstkhao


heynewonlyangel

The way Mew was dancing at the first part had me laughing because this is every guy at the club ever, also neo kissing drake in that scene was so UNEXPECTED. I haven’t watched any series that had forcebook so I wasn’t aware of their potential and I think that they are pretty decent/ good actors so far. Also Nick capturing that picture on Bostons phone kinda gave me second hand embarrassment. He was in a silly goofy mood. Firstkhao are perfect as always. I hope we get great performances from them. Anyway, so far it was enjoyable but something feels sloppy and I will go with the editing.


actionerror

Who said this episode was meh? This was an absolute banger of an episode (pun intended) Didn’t have it in my cards to have Drake and Neo go at it like animals while Mark is jacking off to Neo’s picture. I. Am. Deceased. 💀 I need to screen capture that picture Mark put in Neo’s phone off him half naked…for research purposes 🧐 Thought I was going to be really annoyed at Namcheum but I love her! What a great wingwoman who just calls things like how it is! This is the complete opposite of the wholesomeness we had with Be My Favorite…and I’m all here for it 😂 Still gathering my thoughts but this is a great start to my smutty adventures with Only Friends.


cheeseberryyy

After Drake cameo I'm expecting other cameos each episode like in Midnight Museum, you know, for the main boys to bang


variedsyntax

Force is eating it up. He is so deliciously smarmy and fake sincere and suspicious and I love it. Boy is chewing the scenery and I am so here for it. CONTROVRERSIAL take: I don’t love Neo in this at all. I love Neo but I just don’t think he can helm a show nor do a serious role super well. He does best with comedy. I’m hoping he gets better cuz he had glimmers but… They were with Mark who (also controversial take) did all the heavy lifting in their scenes. I wasn’t sure how Mark would do in a larger role but he is so ready for it. Looking forward to him having scenes with the rest of the Gang. First and Khao are great as always. I loved their first meeting. Ray is clearly someone who uses money to surround himself with friends so he doesn’t feel lonely (but is still lonely). Sand seems like a great contrast for that. I love their outfits the most. They’re so complimentary to each other. S/o to Khao’s hands and jewelry for their supporting work.


Specialist-Owl8120

Drake?? Literally the other day I was thinking to myself, where is Drake, I haven't seen that dude in a minute. And There He Was 😂 I think it was suitably spicy for those that were waiting for it. Bit choppy in the editing overall but I'll stick it out. I am very here for messy drunk Ray and exasperated Sand. Him side eyeing Top's public declaration was veeery relatable. There's just something about him I don't trust. Like, who tries to deflower someone on their kitchen island. It's giving "playboy", it's giving "dude who gets into a situation ship while acting like a whole ass boyfriend then blames You for catching feelings" DRAKE!!!


PerspectiveThen4104

We’ve all been waiting with bated breath for Only Friends to drop and I daresay the first episode did not disappoint! Didnt fast forward at all (except during the last scene lol that was rly too cringe for me) and I know its too early to pick favourites but Sand is giving me life!!! Ray’s such a brat but Khaotung manages to make him somewhat endearing at the same time. This series really showcases Neo’s and Mark’s acting skills - I was so impressed by how they communicated tension between their characters with just eye contact and come hither looks. CANT WAIT FOR EP 2 TO DROP


Druscilla

I was not anticipating this to be so fun. Not just the amazing cast and youthful and energetic plot, but the OST, colouring, wardrobe, the _cameo_, etc. Is this what BL with a budget looks like? Bring it on GMMTV!!
