• Honestly? I love that Jackie is rude. I love that she has insecurities, because it means she’s human. She’s understandable and even relateable. What would you do if some pretty young thing came over and gave you advice on how to deal with your significant other? Of course you’d be annoyed and offended. Anyone would. I certainly know that I would be. How dare this random person claim that she knows what’s best for my relationship with my significant other? It would make me wonder, why does she claim to know my significant other in the first place? Jackie’s response to Rose is completely realistic and legitimate and thus believable. Sure, Jackie doesn’t come out smelling like roses (no pun intended - well, maybe a little pun intended), but I believe her. She feels real to me, and that’s what good television is: believable. The fact that I’m watching a show about a space-and-time-traveling alien and his human companion accidentally falling into a parallel world and meeting the human companion’s parallel family - and I find it believable? That’s good television, my friend. Everyone has insecurities - even parallel!Jackie. Instead of looking at it as a bad thing, look at it as a sign of a realistically written character. 
  • omfg anon. I hope you’re pronouncing my name right! (nee-lee)
  • Oh. Um… I don’t know. I’ve never asked anyone out - I just kind of get asked out? But, hm, I’d say just bring it up casually. If you’re both shy, then bring up a topic you both have in common (like a TV show you both like or whatever) and then suggest that he comes over to you house and watch it. Or bring up a movie you both wanna see, and then ask him to come with you. Keep it casual and friendly  and then if he seems into it, elevate it to a ~date status. Age doesn’t matter if you’re both in HS.
  • Yup, I’ve seen it and I liked it very much!
