Anyone following this? I find it interesting, though I can’t understand why the son is so compliant.

I am!
I get why the son is like that. He grew up in a type of family where you need to "live up" to the family name and not bring shame to it.
I actually find that part pretty relatable.

I found it funny how the son (don't remember names) did the same exact thing to his child that he hates about his father by not letting her do drums.

P.S. the letter to the editor this week about the serial mentioned how wealthy ppl give a hard time when asked for money. Did it mention this at all in the serial? Seemed out of place to me but don't remember the details from last week

Last week Akiva was very disappointed when an old friend/chavrusa reached out and all he wanted was a loan. He felt used and only begrudgingly gave the loan.

I think it’s awesome. I personally knew some very wealthy families that own big businesses and find it fascinating and interesting to read about these dynamics that are so true.

If he only gave the loan begrudgingly because he felt used when he wasn't invited to the friends simcha , then I don't see how the letter writer came to the conclusion that rich people don't give willingly. There's no connection.

Am I the only one who finds it ironic that every few weeks the mishpacha has articles about the financial crisis, inflation affecting the frum community, housing and tuition crises, columns on how people manage simchos and budgets etc, and the practically every or every other serial regulation run features some wealthy gvir family?

Like this is the only entertaining topic? So we're idolizing it? Also, they can never feature a wealthy or comfortable family it has to be the gvirest gvirs of all time like literally the 1 percenters. Unless the people writing these serials just don't have any clue what regular wealthy looks like.

Family expectations, becoming your own person, taking risks, perfectionism. Those are all relatable, whether or not you’re wealthy.

Ok, but the characters are so far from anything I'm familiar with IRL that I'm just not relating. Maybe as the story progresses.

I find it interesting how afraid he is to talk to his father - even when it comes to sticking up for his friend, who’s been shafted. I find it very weak of him.

Yes I do find it ironic. And how about the serials name dropping all sorts of brand names

I don't always related to every novel or serial but as long as it's interesting and written well I'm in.
