Yeah but all the other characters are her peers, approx. the same age as her. I guess that’s what bugs me about Mae and I’m sure part of that is because I’m in my early 20’s myself. I look at Mae like pick up your sticks! Like I said, I do get that Mae isn’t suppose to be likable necessarily but she’s a very flat character to me (until the very end). In that sense I actually find Mae lacking depth @VulpesAbsurda. Gregg and Bea, for example, are both flawed in much more intriguing ways. Bea is a cold detached asshole but she does still care, and shows that, albeit begrudgingly. And for fun she drives far out and literally pretend she’s someone she’s not. And it’s like “oh fuck… this is a real person” meanwhile Mae (in that same scene) goes
"you never asked why I left college"
Bea: "yes I have, multiple times"
maybe that’s suppose to be a cute quirky example of Mae’s self-centeredness but it just comes off as cheap writing to me. Everyone else has interesting, dynamic, human conflicts and Mae is this privileged, oblivious jerk. For me, Mae is the vehicle to much more interesting stories which would be fine if she wasn’t so boring/annoying to play as.
COMPLETE SIDENOTE: I really vibe with the first song they play and have listened to it on YouTube, for fun, several times.
