‘Semi-sunset’ season 4 is all about its witchy villain Christine Quinn

Few things can be more comforting in our five collectives inside than virtual tours of Los Angeles homes, views of glittering infinity pools overlooking Hollywood Hills, and Reliably colorful Christine Quinn’s, glam-goth and highlighter-neon fashion clothing.

Of course, that is if you revel in quarantine Sunset sale on Netflix.

The doc, produced by Adam DiVello, focusing on equally glamorous and industrious female agents at luxury real estate brokerage The Oppenheim Group — and their male bosses — became a reality this season. Monday and Tuesday air in 2020. Season Three, in particular, undergoes the typical fate of today’s reality TV of capturing a major plot that first appeared in the tabloids and kept viewers hooked predicts its portrayal on the show: the series’ main star Chrishell Stause’s divorce from her ex-husband, This is us actor Justin Hartley. Towards the end of the season, the co-workers’ reactions caused an even bigger rift between Stause and the show’s authorized villain Quinn (and her sidekick in agility). Davina Potratz), turns the scorned opera star into a real person with some flaming bridges and a new path to starting out as a refreshingly single woman.

Part three of Sunset sale could have made Stause the last reality show protagonist audiences wanted to see. Season four, however, sees her playing second, third, and sometimes fourth roles to the more fearsome personal woes of others. The latest 10 episodes, all available on Netflix, will also disappoint viewers eager to see her current romance with one of her bosses (Jason Oppenheim) play on screen (according to the latest episode). a trailer after the season finale, the series is coming soon).

However, this season is the focus and really Only the film primarily highlights Quinn’s essential contributions to the franchise as one of the few actors who isn’t shy. Like most seasons of reality TV that revolve around an actor’s bad behavior, watching Quinn take her sloppy mischief to new extremes makes for an almost exhilarating season – until not so. In particular, the end of the season culminated in a moment that made me, as a fan, briefly worry about the future of the franchise — until, of course, I realized that finding women willing to play the role of asshole on accessing Netflix programming is probably not a difficult task. However, few people are as adept as Quinn.

The first episode finds the women in what appears to be a pandemic mob. While the show was bright and visually vibrant as usual, everyone was lacking their normal energy and sunshine at first due to the COVID-19 pandemic that went largely unheard of. (Although it may make many viewers uncomfortable, others will certainly appreciate the complete absence of masks and the disclaimer about group activities as “COVID safe.” “makes viewers very distracted Real housewives last year). Of course, all it took for Quinn to finally meet a few women after the birth of her son to really get the show, especially the newest rep of the Oppenheim Group, Vanessa Villela , another soap star from Mexico City. whom Quinn manages to dig her claws into.

The scenes between the two of them as Quinn creates a story of oppression regarding her relationship with the rest of the women, who all (besides Amanza and Maya) have had it with BS. Her, is just as terrifying and disorienting as amusing as Regina George Cady Heron’s attempts to convert to a clear plastic. Bad girls. Likewise, Villela’s presence on the show seems to be primarily for Quinn’s sake to have a friendly co-star and most importantly, a mediator between her and the rest of her cast. her, as the show doesn’t really delve into her personal life or even her professional developments on the show. While she feels similar to Chrishell in season one, she’s hardly her heir. Also, despite Villela’s often irritating attempts to protect Quinn and play the pacifist, the women are amazingly patient with her at times that I would have enjoyed more. .

“The scenes between the two of them as Quinn creates a story of oppression regarding her relationships with the rest of the women… is just as terrifying and disorienting as exciting as Regina George’s efforts. to convert Cady Heron into a plastic person in ‘Mean Girls’.”

Meanwhile, another newcomer to Oppenheim named Emma Hernan, who’s somehow more statue than Quinn, seems better suited for a multi-season run—unless her empanada empire takes her away from her. we. Positioned as Quinn’s arch-nemesis, Hernan, of course, turns out to be quite likable and resistant to drama in the face of some complicated backstory about an ex-boyfriend that Quinn’s had. claimed they were dating at the same time and both were engaged. Having more #bossbabe certified than Villela and some of the other actors, Hernan seems like she has a lot to offer simply from a voyeuristic perspective, as the show is largely based on giving audiences something new. glimpse into the life of the West Coast elite. Between discussing her option to fly private because of her big dog, her childhood stock investments, and her cheeseburger, she looks like someone on Twitter would enjoy staring .

Outside of the cast, there’s notably a larger celebrity presence this season of Sunset sale than in previous years, probably because the show has grown in popularity over the years. We get episodic appearances by Shang Chi Simu Liu star, with whom Stause tries to find a new home. There’s a season-long storyline involving Mary Fitzgerald trying to sell French Montana’s house, including making a FaceTime appearance with him. Former Lakers player Thomas Bryant appeared in a few episodes. And also a lot of mentions Harry Styles.

With every new turn the show offers, including the reappearance of Davina, who left The Oppenheim Group after failing to sell an expensive plot of land last season, it still feels like an ingredient is missing. , especially when focusing on Stause. Now that the former “underdog” is at the pinnacle of his work and has been accepted by most of the cast — and later her boss’s romance — it doesn’t seem like much of a plot left. in her life. she is willing to share on TV.

It’s amazing how she mainly talks about her parents’ deaths over the past year and in general about the ways Quinn tries to hurt her after their divorce, despite the fact that their rift has lasts throughout the season. Instead, Stause’s plot largely revolves around trying to buy a multi-million dollar home, which she repeatedly ties into her experience of growing up in poverty and being evicted from her ex-husband’s house after when they get divorced. While she was emotional about it, it wasn’t necessarily the evocative moment she thought, especially when it came to colleague Amanza Smith when she received a call from child protective services. children and dealing with the abandonment of her children’s father.

Although season four ultimately hit a dead end about countless women’s conflicts with Quinn, it feels like a pivotal point in the series that could wake the producers up to some of its current affairs. , like the lack of an interesting dynamic without Quinn. Sunset sale there will never be table flips, broken glass fare, and it’s a show more unique in today’s reality ecosystem because of it. Still, the series needs to stay true to its original promise of competition and a toxic “family” work environment if it is to hold our attention in the years to come.
