I know I'm a little late to comment on the first episode of Casa Mika but I just watched because I was waiting for the subtitles. And I want to talk about here because none of my other friends are Mika fans so I need someplace to air my feelings, so forgive me if this gets long.
I was really curious to see how Luciana would be after all the discussion, and it's true that at first I didn't think she suited the show very well but then she started to grow on me. When she made that speech before MIka sang "We Are Golden", the open letter to all those kids who feel different, she spoke with such power and sincerity that it made me emotional, I felt every word she was saying.
I don''t exactly understand if Gregory is supposed to be a metaphor or symbol for some part of MIka or his personality, or is he just a character Mika created for the show?
That part when the American guy in the taxi was yelling at Mika that he has no talent and doesn't deserve to have his show was hilarious! Mika took it with such grace and humor, I wish I could see the look on that guy's face when he saw the show! I really wanted Mika to bring him on stage and show him the proof.
This time around I enjoyed the show even more than before, I felt like it was more cohesive, more complete, it held my attention from beginning to end. Last time I'm ashamed to admit I would skip through the songs by the other guests, but this time I didn't because it felt like every song, every scene fit into the full picture, like a movie, and once you started you never looked away once. I can't wait for the next episode, thank you again amazing translating team!
