Kelly Mi Li in episode 8 Xtm世界播

凯莉·米莉第八集Xtm世界播


The show stars Kane Lim, the son of a Singaporean billionaire; Christine Alexandra Chiu, the founder of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery with her husband, Dr. Gabriel Chiu; fashion influencer Jaime Xie; "superfamous DJ" Kim Lee; model Kevin Kreider; "denim empire" heiress Cherie Chan; socialite Anna Shay; producer Kelly Mi Li; and actor Andrew Gray, aka the Red Power Ranger. It features the group attending over-the-top parties, going on expensive shopping sprees, and traveling the world, and of course, there's lots and lots of drama. While I understand that this is a common basis for a reality show, the timing of it couldn't be more wrong. Xtm世界播

该节目由新加坡亿万富翁的儿子Kane Lim,Beverly Hills整形手术的创始人Christine Alexandra Chiu和她的丈夫Gabriel Chiu博士,时尚影响力人物Jaime Xie,“超级DJ”Kim Lee,模特Kevin Kreider,“牛仔帝国”女继承人Cherie Chan,社会名流Anna Shay,制片人Kelly Mi Li和演员Andrew Gray(又名“Red Power Ranger”)主演。它的特色是,这群人参加夸张的派对,进行昂贵的购物狂欢,环游世界,当然,还有很多戏剧性的东西。虽然我知道这是真人秀节目的共同基础,但它的时机错得不能再错了。Xtm世界播


If we learned anything about television in 2020, it's that people want to watch shows with substance. They want content that helps them escape their daily lives, makes them feel real emotions, and tackles important real-life issues head on. Hence, why shows like The Queen's Gambit, Schitt's Creek, and The Umbrella Academy received such high praise last year. Bling Empire does none of those things. I'm sorry, but who honestly wants to watch a show about rich people frivolously spending money and fighting with each other about being rich (see: #necklacegate) while dealing with a global pandemic? Please read the room. Xtm世界播

如果说我们在2020年学到了什么关于电视的东西,那就是人们想看有实质内容的节目。他们想要的内容可以帮助他们逃离日常生活,让他们感受到真实的情感,并正面解决现实生活中的重要问题。因此,为什么像《女王的赌博》、《希特的小溪》和《雨伞学院》这样的电视剧在去年获得了如此高的评价。金光闪闪的帝国影业不会做这些事情。我很抱歉,但谁真的想看一部关于富人在应对全球流行病时挥金如土、为致富而相互争斗的节目(参见:#项链门(#Necklacegate))?请看一下房间。Xtm世界播

(L-R) Kelly Mi Li and Andrew in episode 6 Xtm世界播

(左-右)第六集凯莉·米莉和安德鲁Xtm世界播


Bling Empire is also another example of the normalization of toxic relationships on TV. From the very first episode, producers paint Kelly and Andrew as this clearly dysfunctional couple who are in an emotionally abusive relationship yet they just can't seem to quit each other. We see Andrew constantly manipulating Kelly into believing that he truly loves her and wants the best for her, even though his actions prove otherwise. At one point, he even reprimands Kelly for discussing their issues with her friends and tells her, "Because whatever happens between you and I, nobody needs to know." Viewers are then expected to sympathize with Andrew as he's shown dramatically praying on his knees at their therapist's office (after the therapist kicks him out so she can talk to Kelly alone, by the way) and we learn about his childhood trauma.

《闪耀帝国》也是电视上有毒关系正常化的另一个例子。从第一集开始,制片人就把凯利和安德鲁描绘成一对明显不正常的夫妇,他们在情感上存在虐待关系,但他们似乎就是无法离开对方。我们看到安德鲁不断地操纵凯莉,让她相信他真的爱她,并希望她得到最好的结果,尽管他的行为证明并非如此。有一次,他甚至斥责凯莉和她的朋友讨论他们的问题,并告诉她,“因为无论你和我之间发生了什么,没人需要知道。”观众会同情安德鲁,因为他在治疗师的办公室里戏剧性地跪着祈祷(顺便说一句,在治疗师把他踢出去,这样她就可以和凯莉单独交谈了),我们了解到了他童年的创伤。Xtm世界播


This manipulation and emotional abuse go on throughout the entire season, and yet at no point during the show do producers or Netflix warn viewers about the potentially triggering content. This is flat-out socially irresponsible. I understand that reality TV shows are meant to reflect things exactly how they are, but producers could have used this opportunity as a teaching moment. Instead of highlighting Kelly and Andrew's relationship for the sake of having the finale's happily-ever-after moment, this could have been a real opportunity to educate viewers on an issue that rarely gets addressed on TV, which is far more important, if you ask me. Xtm世界播

这种操纵和情感虐待贯穿整季,但在节目期间,制片人和Netflix从未就潜在的触发内容向观众发出警告。这是彻头彻尾的社会不负责任。我明白电视真人秀节目是为了准确地反映事物的本来面目,但制片人本可以利用这个机会作为一个教学时刻。与其强调凯莉和安德鲁的关系是为了享受大结局中幸福美满的时刻,这本可以是一个真正的机会,让观众了解这个很少在电视上得到解决的问题,如果你问我,这一问题要重要得多。Xtm世界播


After all, it is 2021, and if we're demanding that celebrities do more to support and speak out about important causes, we should hold TV networks and streaming services accountable, too. Xtm世界播

毕竟,现在是2021年,如果我们要求名人做更多的事情来支持重要的事业,并为重要的事业发声,我们也应该追究电视网和流媒体服务的责任。Xtm世界播
