Samefagging to get the ball rollin` I really liked Lexi as a character. She was level headed and seemed very loyal to Rue, i wish more could be shown about her on the show, i liked when she was Bob Ross for Halloween.
I didn't like Jules because he seemed so promiscuous and careless, so much so that it ruined the serious tone sometimes

I remember during Skins there was a lot of controversy about how it "glamorized" unhealthy and dangerous situations, but imo Euphoria is much worse. The Skins cast were attractive but believable teenagers with wonky teeth and sweat patches but the Euphoria cast are always presented like pop stars in an appealing, pore-free way even when they're meant to be at their lowest. Perhaps it's something to do with the cameras and filters the show uses, but even in the worse situations there is some effort made to make the scene easy on the eye. The show is a visual success but that also makes it irresponsible because teenagers really are are idiots that will copy the worst behavior as long as it looks cool.
I was really interested in Maddy, at first I just liked seeing a queen bee with the Ariana Grande look but I liked how she wasn't a Regina cliche and they way they handled her past. However the above glamorization really hurt the depiction of her abusive relationship and I know teenage girls will miss the point and glorify that struggle love
The whole thing made me want to be a teen again because of how cool everyone dressed and how dramatic everything was. And that final sequence was amazing
Same omg it made me wish I was a teenager again because holy shit I never realized how much trouble I could've gotten myself into kek
My least favorite part is with Kat being a findom, after having revenge Porn uploaded to pornhub isn't she like 16-17? I felt so grossed out during those scenes otherwise Kat was cool, i didn't like the her doing porn shit.
Jules is too crazy imo, threatening to cut herself at the party and meeting random dudes to fuck, and then the part with the mental hospital. Jules sucks I hated the part at the party when she got p drunk, bitch your friend is a recovering addict. Have some courtesy. troons amirite
My favorite part is all the parties and carnivals, they're shot so beautifully. Kinda makes me sad I never went to any parties like that in high school.

They‘re pretty nice.
I agree with you about Kat and her porn-liberation (?) Thing. I wish they showed more of the struggle, the stigma of being a victim
of sexual abuse, and social pressure before the sexual liberation part. It would be so fulfilling to find power in the thing that society/family shamed her for when we see how much she suffered because of it, and how she tried to heal.
Of course, they would have to build her character up to that point. Which might take years for the character to undo the trauma of it, then find power in it.
But no, let's get straight to the teenage pornstar yaas queen
It doesn't feel convincing to me?
I don't know I'm not a writer. I probably shouldn't criticize this part yet, maybe they will tackle this issue more in season 2
Do a trial and then nope out before the seven days. It's only 8 episodes long. I don't know, I have a love-hate relationship for the show, it was beautiul and I'm really fond of the characters (except for Jules, ugh) On another hand >>108233
is right. >>108248
Come on, anon. The only reason I watched it was because I heard it as awful and needed to cringe-binge.
I'm not entirely offput by wokeness, some of which I might even agree with but it all depends on the execution. If it's doing libfem shit in the way Sabrina did then I definitely would not enjoy it. That being said I don't immediately lose my mind at the sight of a trans person so if the hate towards the show is exclusively because a tranny is in the it then I wouldn't mind that at all. I'd rather not have a tranny in a show but it won't ruin things for me. I love Skins so my interest in Euphoria was mainly due to its proximity to that vibe.>>108253
I don't know how old you are or your income situation but I'm not at a point in my life where I pirate anything.
This show makes me so fucking pink pilled I want to go live in the woods. It's so evil that the standard of beauty/sex appeal for is synonymous with victimhood, I hate Euphoria ACKNOWLEDGING how gratuitous sexuality isn't inherently empowering and how women are held hostage by their own socialization without any commentary or analysis. Their pain is just made to be fuckable.
And I hate the bitch chloe cherry, she represents all the worst parts of it and I feel so bad for the 13-18 year old girls that see Euphoria and porn as representative of any kind of ideal

With all the show's flaws and extreme sexualization, I really appreciate it for Rue; it's probably the first time I see such realistic portrayal of bpd and depression anywhere and I keep finding myself hoping for a happiness and good ending for that character. Ongoing season though seems to really heavily imply that she is going to die, and seeing fandom reactions to her storyline since first ep of 2nd season it really may happen, people are so bored with her, given she surely is not pornified #aesthetic queen like other characters of the show.

The best part of the season so far was this moment. And I liked Fez’s grandmother’s back story.

This is why i side eye anything hbo produces (yeah yeah i know tumblr bad but i dont see any lies here)
a lot of their shows dont seem to care about potential but more like any excuse to be porn and the fact they are doing this with characters meant to be teens for an adult audience is really skeevy.
Honestly watching this show makes me feel ill some times. The raw amount of porn being put on screen is so off putting, especially in regards to nate's dad. I feel like they toss it in at the most uncomfortable, weirdest moments. Maybe that's the point but I don't like it regardless.
Rue's story and dialogue seems interesting. I've never been around drugs but i feel like it tackles some ideas ive never thought of before and portrays drug addiction in a different light that most media. It feels a bit glorified sometimes but the episode where she talked with Ali was very good, IMO.
Ignoring the OF saga, Kat is my favorite. She feels close to home. I was like her as a kid, on tumblr, lured into weird porn communities. I don't like how they portrayed it exactly, but it's neat to see a character like her being written. Her and Ethan remind me of my own Hs love, it's sweet. (So far, as I'm watching) he seems normal and nice. I like how they met, and how different they are from all the other characters and relationships. I hope kat will flourish more to be an even more normal and likable character as the episodes progress.
Also, Jules is probably one of the more interesting, despicable types of villains I've ever seen written. I don't think they meant her to be so hateable, but god is she such a weird, bad person.

From the way this article is written it seems that Kat was supposed to go through the horrors of being a cam girl but the actress said no to it.
It's understandable to not want to be put in scenes that are uncomfortable sexual situations but she's stuck in a gray area of romanticizing camming. The last episode of the first season set up the "darker plot" but it just fizzled into nothing.https://www.elle.com.au/amp/celebrity/barbie-ferreira-sam-levinson-fight-26570
Pretty sad episode, Rue is so far gone. I'm half hatewatching half just admiring Zendaya/Sydney every Sunday ngl. Rue blowing Cassie's affair the fuck up was hilarious, I kinda wanted to remain in Maddie and Cassie's argument instead of following Rue's pathetic escapades.
As an aside, I thought they were teasing Lexi as a lesbian in season 1 with a one-sided crush on Rue but I guess not? Fez is an endearing character to me but I don't like Lexi and him as a pairing.

What a dark episode, Zendaya did an incredible job. I wish Levinson & co had the balls to keep the serious tone throughout the entire thing, that slapstic comedy police chase was really not necessary nor funny, just really out of place. Laurie, the druglord, is really nicely written and great performance from the actress too, properly terrifying, I wonder to how dark of a place is it gonna go. I guess the liquid drugs are stronger than pills, that's why she lied about not having any and insisted on rue getting an injection?>>184912>I kinda wanted to remain in Maddie and Cassie's argument instead of following Rue's pathetic escapades.
Pretty sure we will go back to it in the next week's episode, they wouldn't deny the viewers this long awaited moment I hope??
I agree about Lexi/Fez, no idea why people are so hyped for this pairing, it makes no sense and they have nothing in common and no chemistry, just one half decent conversation in 1st episode; hope it doesn't happen.
Also, other things aside, I'm glad to see it's actually possible to have an episode with zero nudity and sexual themes FOR ONCE
>>184912>Maddie and Cassie's argument
I was glad they didn't focus on this and am dreading returning to it. I don't get all the love for Maddie, so many people act like she's a bAd bItCh but she's just a pickme and a self aware one at that, which kind of makes it worse. She knows exactly how toxic
and retarded her relationship with Nate is but keeps going back to him, and now she's reaming out Cassie for sleeping with him even though Nate was just as much of an active participant. Yes it was inconsiderate and pathetic behavior from Cassie, but she's hardly the worse of the two compared to the physically and mentally abusive
I thought most people in this thread were just hate watching the show, are you actually a fan of it ?>the show brought attention to the matter while showing it in a properly negative light
was excepting this, the cuties defense>"Um ackshually the graphic depictions of very underage girls doing sexually explicit stuff is meant to SHOW IT'S BAD, you ignorant bigot"

picrel from leaked cuck loser sex vid of the perverted guy posting those bad opinions
I love Cassie. Probably an unpopular opinion, she did nothing wrong. She’s just so sweet and her parents are pill addicts so I don’t understand why everyone is so quick to vilify her in her advice, I see myself in her too a little, developed fast, addicted to male attention and big boobies
you couldn’t pay me to hate Cassie, she had just gone through an abortion and was told off by that creepy fuck, Daniel. That guy told her that she was nothing and deserved nothing, she is only 17. I am rooting for her

She's honestly the nice girl in an unfortunate body (only because it makes her more of a target to men). Never heard her shit talking other people like many of her "friends" and imo it's ironic that Lexi is seen as the good sister when she's making an entire play centered around how much she resents Cassie and portraying her as a stupid, self-absorbed bimbo. Yeah, she rarely thinks things through, but that can literally be said about all of these idiots and at least she actually tries to be considerate of her friends. None of the gross scrotes she idealizes remotely deserve her.
I think that Lexi is resentful because their mom pulled a Yolanda Hadid and since they were little she held Cassie on a pedestal as the golden child, beautiful and perfect who can do no wrong. Sure Lexi's not coping with it well, but then again they're kids, raised by very dysfunctional parents at that.
Anyway, I don't think Cassie is nice at all. Aside from having an affair with her best friend's on-and-off boyfriend which is a big no-no even if they broke up, it rubbed me the wrong way how in the latest episode she gave some condescending advice to Rue, looked around to make sure it pleased everyone in the room as if she only did it for good girl points, then turned on her and called her a drug addict when shit hit the fan only a minute later.
Almost everyone in this show needs therapy
I think Cassie is just dumb. I wouldn’t expect deep advice from her. Also I don’t blame her for saying Rue is a drug addict because she is
and she through her under the bus when she was trying to help, in her weird air headed bimbo way.
I miss when she was with McKay
I love Cassie, she reminds me of Dolly Parton. When they did the 'country music star' bit I was so happy lol.
I feel bad for the actress being put in the position where her tits are shown 5x more than everybody else's.
>>185868>gave some condescending advice to Rue, looked around to make sure it pleased everyone in the room as if she only did it for good girl points
Yeah, like >>185906
I felt she was genuinely trying to help even though the advice was a massive oversimplification, and the looking around was more like, "Right guys? She can get better a little at a time!" looking for them to give more encouragement to Rue. She's basically the slightly edgier version of Karen Smith from Mean Girls, I just don't think she's crafty enough (or rather, at all) to plot out her comments in an attempt to raise her social standing. Don't agree about McKay though, I think he's a piece of shit.
It makes sense given this too >>184812
. Sam Levinson is giving me metoo vibes, I hope he runs his creepy ass into the ground sooner rather than later.
i feel bad for cassie but she's hard to root for and sympathize with, since her initial premise of being a girl who is so hot that most men can't help but want to fuck her isn't the most relatable or sympathetic characterization for a person>>185929>>185936
this sounds like wattpad fanfic but apparently zendaya and elordi dated and i guess elordi cheated on her? and so schafer doesn't like him
Latest episode was actually good, no porn and Zendaya and the actresses who play her mother, sister and the drug dealer lady gave such a good performance. This further solidified it in my mind that all the sex is just there for shock factor and it serves absolutely no purpose to the narrative, it's so unnecessary.
Why can't we just have a visually appealing show with some good acting and lots of drama?
