Alles Was Zahlt: I'll have much more to say when I see the subtitles, but Roman and Deniz were heavily featured in the episode. There was some Katja/Isabelle fighting, which Katja provoked by going on and on when Isabelle was just going to ignore her, do her thing, and leave the locker room. There was some Jenny/Axel fighting which Simone was delighted to see. There wasn't much of Zoe, except that she was mooning over Florian. Someone should warn the boy that she'll be nothing but whiny trouble. Florian and Deniz talked, Deniz and Roman talked, Roman and Florian talked -- and I'll comment about it all when I understand exactly what they were saying.
Added: So far, Florian doesn't seem so bad. He gets along all right with Deniz, and he seems to be a nice enough kid. If he refrains from making homophobic remarks, even Roman may grow to like him eventually. I'm curious to see how that goes. Marc wasn't in this episode, which I was glad about, although Roman was mooning around rather than watching Katja do her ballet practice. That was more of a Mike-like thing to do, be preoccupied by anything but your skaters. Roman paid attention to Katja when she was skating though, so he was in good-trainer mode there. It's cool that Roman's getting a family, even if he doesn't think it's cool. It gives depth to the character's background, as revisionist as all this history is.
EKP also had the video of the RTL feature about the event. I was in it for a moment. They talked over me, but I think that was my sentence about being bisexual. Now all the RTL viewers know. Way to out myself to Germany. The only real-life people who don't know here are a couple of religious friends, the senior citizens at the secondhand bookstore, and the senior citizens of the garden club, though some in the latter two groups have gotten the idea that I'm gay-friendly. The university students know, and my folks know. I'll tell the students if there's a subtitled version, so they can watch the feature.
I called S. to tell him I was out to all of Germany now. He said he was out to Mexico from telling his stories about his relationships to his Mexican-American friends, and having them tell their families. Somehow my secret love child always has a story to match or top mine.
