Euphoria (should've been called Youthoria) HBO
« on: August 07, 2019, 09:07:15 PM »
Or better still Youthwhoreia wouldve been fitting.

Sometimes I get compelled to watch things that I have no business messing about with and this was definitely that...I knew next to nothing about it but for some reason was drawn to it and binge watched the first 4 episodes. And its weirdly very good in my opinion. Its a bleak and rather candid teen drama looking at the empty meandering experiences of a bunch of generation zed people; a bit like Skins. And like Skins Id say theres a bit more to it than you might first assume.

What I like is it isnt afraid to really slow things down and go very analytical in the study of its characters. Theres some fantastic turns by some talented young actors and parts about addiction and its nature rang true to me. Its also the most explicit and graphic programme I think thats ever been on telly in some ways. Ive never seen so many cocks onscreen before. I didnt flinch per se but can see how itd be very shocking to some. There was a bit where a massive fat guy is wanking his micropenis whilst crying which just made me like "i have never seen that before on telly"

We're not really its demographic so maybe no one will dig it but Im finding it weirdly compelling and very entertaining. Is it a honest portrayal of being a teen today? Probably not, all the glamorization and romanticism is there like skins but like skins it shows the ugly downward trajectories that inevitably transpire.

I'm going to assume this is basically just skins but even more unrealistic and shit? Not interested.

No worries mate.

I do wonder who ARE the demographic for these youth oriented shows full of gratuitous drug use and sex though? Doesn't it make most young people feel really depressed and alienated like Skins did for me when I was a teenager? Is this for people who love personal drama and go to festivals? So many questions!

Well to expand on what I said; yes there are a few aspect that feel like falsehoods...everyone happens to be incredibly goodlooking with impeccable fashion sense. Some characters have a comic book sensibility about them.

But this is a good tv show, with more depth than just drugs and sex. And vitally its just incredibly well put together like a novel, the main actress particularly is mesmerizing and I actually want to know whats going to happen next. Its appealing in both its silly melodrama and bleak realism so I wouldnt write it off just on assumptions

I fucking love Skins, wish they hadn't killed Freddy though.
Been meaning to watch this too.

There a multiple small penises scene in Patriot (amazon) that is very good.

Started watching this last night, pretty good. The lead is great. Nothing like my teens of smoking weed and playing Halo 3 eh readers!? There are small penises on show but also big titties so it all works out OK.

Unfortunately I have seen that before on the telly (when it was turned off and I caught my own reflection once)

Zendaya is bloody great so I am considering watching for her alone. Lots of  wangs can only increase my interest

Careful mate.

Freddy's memory there.

It reminded me of Gen 3 of skins, if anything. I only watched the first episode though so maybe it got better

Not as shocking as early Grange Hill.

Been binging this Dawson's Creek with Tits. Started off strong, gradually losing interest the more I learn about the characters.
