saw a preview of this in front of got

it looks rly excellent? great visual aesthetic

sam levinson has tapped into the contemporary adolescent zone better than most younger writers, weirdly enuff. I dug assassination nation

did anyone watch this?

felt a little unpromising in the first few minutes of the episode, but it might turn out to be ok or maybe even good?

i thought this was really good, can’t wait to watch more. the depiction of high school and gen-z life in general is extremely unrealistic but that’s okay.

This looks like a million bucks but the writing is bad, imo. The narration is Narcos-level overbearing.

its funny how much i disliked Assassination Nation but responded to this. Levinson's sensibilities work a bit better in a TV format + im glad he lost the cartoonishness from that movie. euphoria is def more sobering (but still has levity!)

a little too degrassi on steroids (that consent convo) but interested to see where this goes.

zendaya is captivating as is her bestie, i almost wanted to cry during the scene where zendaya comes up to her after the party, it was so sweet.

Zendaya is great

I don't understand why they want to break a real life feel to this by adding several really dumb and unnecessary scenes pep rally in the world's tiniest cafeteria during lunch? dedicate half an episode to revenge porn on a surprise 22y/o at a party?Toggle Spoiler

about half of this feels like it could be really good, but the other half is trying really hard to make the entire thing unwatchable

this show is the exact kind of thing i would have loved when i was a teen (i was obsessed with stuff like kids, rules of attraction, bully, undressed, etc) so i am fully on board
i wish the little drug dealer kid had some dialogue in the second ep though, he's my favorite character by far

same but i'll include kat.

i still like this. it's funny though, clearly it relies heavily on the THIS IS LIFE AS A TEENAGER IN 2019 thing but it's all written by people a lot older it comes off kind of iffy.

other than Kids, is there precedent for this much graphic sex and nudity with people portraying teens?

partly being a new parent but this whole show kinda fills me with dread and discomfort.

i feel like this is basically hbo's 13 reasons why, especially with the episodes being laid out person to person like it has been (jules next week). i think there is a fair bit of sex in 13 reasons why but that show is a bit of a blur to me.
