We do love a Bad Boy
Artie O’Daly is back with another instalment in Bad Boys – the bonkers comedy series about boys with a daddy-complex.
Bad Boys explores the encounters between Scott (played by Artie O’Daly) and the bad boys in his life. There’s a loose narrative that connects each of the episodes, but what’s important is that O’Daly has created a group of characters that are funny, engaging, and watchable – whatever they’re doing.
One of the ongoing tensions in the series is the boys assuming that Scott can be categorised as a Daddy in a Daddy/Son sexual sexual dynamic – because of the age difference. It’s an assumption that Scott tries to resist, but not very effectively.
The latest instalment is Bad Boy’s Big Break.
Scott is trying to navigate BJ’s career ambitions, an undercover FBI agent, and pitching his script to an agent. Compelling.
Along with O’Daly, this episode stars Alina Bock, Braden Davis, and Paul Riley Fox.
This is quality queer absurdist comedy. Worth watching.
