Reading Labels, My Hogwarts Letter & Finale of Becoming Us
I watched the finale of Becoming Us. You can read my initial thoughts about the series HERE. Here's a quick synopsis: In this unscripted drama, a teenager named Ben learns to live with his dad becoming a woman. The series will follow Ben, his family and his friends as they support one another through this unexpected journey and navigate their new world with Charlie now living as Carly.
This was a 10 episodes first season and I have to say it was really good. I learned a lot of about transgender community. Since I work in TV I know how real "reality" shows can be but I hope there wasn't to much producing going on behind the scenes. There were some very heart wrenching moments and a few health scares along the way. Of course the main character is Ben (the 16 year old son) and within the year of filming he grew so much. I think that was my favorite part of the series. Watching him grieve over the loss of his father but finally accepting her new life and the part she will play in his life now. I don't know if there will be a second season or not but if it does come back I'll be there to watch it.
