Ep. 239 – Hell In The OC

July 6, 2024

Orange County is once again the setting of Christopher’s steamy new Sapphire Cove novel, so your hosts decided to take a fun and frivolous trip to the region by way of a popular Netflix reality show. Big mistake. Huge. Sapphire Cove Summer was supposed to be a much needed break from dark and disturbing true crime stories, but when your hosts decided to sample the first four episodes of the third season of SELLING THE OC, they found themselves relentlessly tortured by a gilded coterie of witless malignant narcissists. The venomous cat fights, sexual manipulation and rank unprofessionalism on display here might not be criminal — but they should be. At the very least, these so-called real estate professionals should lose their licenses. And did we mention the show used queer baiting to promote its latest season? There’s little Eric hates more, save for everything else about this dreadful train wreck. You might want to turn the volume down on this one. Or up, if you hate this kind of soulless reality television as much as they do.
