Carole & Tuesday – 10

「River Deep, Mountain High」

At least there was a cliffhanger.

That’s as much positivity out of me this week. I’m a little saturated by the heavily auto-tuned songs and generic, even stereotypical personalities, of the various performers. Carole, Tuesday, and Angela are the only performers who seem to have a bit of humanity left. Carole and Tuesday are a grounded pair and Angela… well, there’s more there than I thought. What was that about an empty vessel making the most noise?

Let’s say I take a step back from the actual story and look more at the construct of the series, I can appreciate the comment about technology and how it’s automated almost all aspects of our lives. People are becoming more and more self obsessed, losing touch with their environment, creating realities and personalities as they see fit (for the fame).

The music in this episode was also heavily auto-tuned, a lot less acoustic, and a reminder of how music sounds today. The lyrics are shallow, the melodies lack depth, and they provide very little progression – pretty much like everything playing on your most popular local radio station.

It would be unfortunate if the girls don’t make it on stage after this sabotage attempt. Maybe their amateur style I complained about only a few days ago might be the fresh air I need. Hopefully this doesn’t end Tuesday’s musical career. These are the consequences for being too compassionate towards very emotionally aggressive beings. I’m assuming Cybelle is the culprit. She’s the only one who would have the time to plan something like this and only she would know of Tuesday’s birthday. Or at least, that’s what I think. Even if Angela’s mom would want to sabotage C&T, the timeframe to plan it out was too short.

They might have to forfeit, but maybe Pyotr’s narcissistic live stream will be grounds enough to disqualify him and put the girls back in the spotlight.

Who knows?

    Guessing you haven’t been liking this arc either huh?

    Well, right now Pyotr are giving them some time. But i think he do not know what is happen in the backstage and he is really that self loved

    Cybelle could done this. But also she need time to prepare this or not?

      Also this time Pyotr’s song… the music and lines did not fit. they where not in harmony, just the refrain

      in this round the music until now was more the actor then the singers… But perhaps it is only me, the balance was off

    Well, thanks for the summaries. I was looking forward to this show but I only made it through the first handful of eps. The show is plain vanilla. I’ve been hoping for an improvement and I have to rely on you to keep watching for it.

    Good point about the possible chance Pytor getting DQ. I did not thought about.

    I still believe Cybelle could be innocent. I believe it could be Tao or Angela’s manager. I think Pytor phone will prove it was not her. Also the scene of the crime was the “others” dressing room. So somone has to see her head back the other way. And everyone watching the event is innocent as they all have an alibi.

    When Cybelle left, there was no package on the table. Then Cybelle walks past Pytor in a coridoor. Tuesday still could not find her. Once Carole left looking for Tuesday. That was probably when someone put the present on the table. There was a scene of Carole holding her present in the backstage area and Katie was there. But then perhaps – she slipped the parcel. Or maybe Tao right after Angela’s performance placed it in the dressing room. He actually has a better motive to sabotage C&T performance.

    Also that shot where Katie looking suspicious before Angela hits the showers. Yup guilty face.

    The songs were not as good as last week that is for sure but I expect C&T to deliver. It is weird because I enjoyed GGK performance more than both Pytor and Angela’s.

      About Katie:

      Yes, i had nearly the same idea. But she is more looking for the Data/Pictures and stuff on the Mobile of Angela, as if she want to find out her Secrets. She seems to be an “Otaku fan” Manager of her..

      I do not think she had the idea of sabotage Thuesday. She is to “otaku” with Angela

      • June 16, 2019 at 12:28 amWorldwidedepp

        perhaps she could find something out about “mommy’s” past and could try to blackmail it.. but in the end it would also backfire Angela

        We all know the secret of “Mommy”

    Had there been a crossover with Macross Frontier, Tuesday would have gotten a big slap in the face from Sheryl Nome for being so unprofessional.

    • June 16, 2019 at 12:31 amWorldwidedepp

      in this case here…. Well, Sheryl Nome is already an “super star” in Macross Frontier, here in C&T there is only the ones from the Desert Concert Gig. Angela is the nearest of Pro in this Location or “Who i am!?. EarthGun”

      • June 16, 2019 at 1:16 amThe suffocated

        I am not talking about how she sings or the songs she and Carole have written, but about the fact that she left to find Cybelle when she was about to get on the stage. Sheryl Nome had slapped Ranka Lee and she would have slapped Tuesday too, had she been there.

        well… for drama or she is really an airhead

    The thing I don’t like about the show is it give away the ending at the start of every episode so there are no stakes and frankly speaking the journey they present isn’t very interesting.

    • June 16, 2019 at 6:46 pmLoliHat

      To large degree we don’t actually know what the “miracle” was, specifically, and in a way that slight “spoiler” actually makes the journey a bit more interesting.

      • June 17, 2019 at 11:27 pma20000000

        Doubt. It is a garbage way to artificially frame your story by literally showing the ending with narration constantly. Without it you might not know that they eventually hit it big time. There is little room for any interesting specifics. In the most recent episode that I didn’t watch the cliffhanger seems to imply dry ice burns which would make that small box some sort of magical perfect insulator and extreme pressure vessel since they are nominally in the real world that would make it a real magic box that would revolutionize their entire world overturning much of science. Of course it won’t because it is just bad writing and nitpicking aside I rarely drop shows mid-season but I did for this because I just don’t care about the journey anymore and the ending is well enough defined to say well it goes well for them in the end and the details are boring it should have been condensed into a 12 episode show not a 24 episode one.

    I’m assuming Cybelle is the culprit. She’s the only one who would have the time to plan something like this and only she would know of Tuesday’s birthday. Or at least, that’s what I think. Even if Angela’s mom would want to sabotage C&T, the timeframe to plan it out was too short.

    The last episode or two seemed to set Cybelle up as a red herring with Angela’s minion being responsible (on her own or on Tao’s or even the DJ’s orders). Of course, I could just as easily see Cybelle pulling something on Angela because she was treated like dirt. It’d be fun if they were both red herrings…

    Imagine a crossover between this show and Detroit Metal City…

    For some reason, I’m expecting the box to contain… the result of an act of self-harm by Cybelle. Although having liquid nitrogen handy would be a bit too much, even on Mars.
