    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    I'm at a loss for words after finishing this last night. I watched the last three hours without moving from my bed or looking away (I'm usually guilty of scrolling through my phone while watching tv). I had no idea what I was getting myself into and this turned out to be way too relatable at parts and deeply affecting for me. At some point, maybe after I read the book, I think I'll need to watch it again though, because it was beautiful.

    this was just fantastic through and through and even though I grew up in England, a lot of the school stuff felt intensely familiar.

    the ending was just heartbreaking

    I watched the first episode and found it to be just okay... but going to keep trying based on everyone’s reactions.

    just pressed play on this episode and the trigger warning that comes on screen beforehand already has me worried

    My friend who got me to watch this is a "I understand Marianne, but not Connell" person and I'm a "I understand Connell, but not Marianne" person and we're both baffled the other type of persone exists, so I'm curious if others have the same reaction to this show, or if the two of us are just emotionally stunted by being too much like them.

    I can't stop thinking about this show.

    I did fine. It was a rough episode, but the whole show is kinda that way. I only have the finale left, but I kinda don't want to finish quite yet.

    i understand them both pretty easy. i feel like that's the point of the show - that there's no need to pick sides.

    Started this at 11PM and just finished at 5AM, i read the book so I knew every story note, but, man, it still absolutely wrecked me. Truly phenomenal.

    The first two episodes were ok imo, absolutely gorgeously assembled, but doesn't seem to do or say anything interesting yet. Also, kind of romantically pretentious
