Euphoria: Season One Review

Collapse )

TL;DR: I will admit that while Euphoria is a fantastic show, it might not be for everyone considering the content it features. The subject matters it explores can be triggering, anxiety-inducing, and uncomfortable and hard to watch at times, but nevertheless it's not exploitative and manages to handle difficult issues with dignity and respect. Also, keep in mind that this is a show on HBO, it's a series about teenagers for a mature audience, similar to that of UK's Skins, for example.

For anyone wanting more insight, the cast did a Q&A at the ATX Festival where they showed the pilot episode before the show premiered, and they talk and answer questions in regards to the show, the process, etc. It's a great way of getting to know what the show is likely about without getting too spoiled. It's also good to hear how eloquently Zendaya answers questions, which I've watched her interviews before but the way she talks about this show, especially with the showrunner/creator, it proves just how passionate she is about this role.
