Normal People (BBC/Hulu) #1: "Life offers up these moments of joy despite everything”

Here's the trailer if you haven't heard about it:




I quite enjoyed the show. It really concentrates on the connection between two characters. A lot of story development in that 30 min per episode format without being too rushed. So well done.

Ha. You're not alone. I didn't hate it but I didn't quite get what made so many think it was so wonderful.

Wouldn't that be a writing thing?

It's being released weekly here so I've only watched the first episode and so far I'd say it's just alright. I think it does try a little too hard to paint Marianne as an outcast so maybe I agree with you? I mean she's cute and she's well-off and I've seen how that goes a long way when you're still in school. That being said I'm intrigued by what it's trying to do and I do love a good slow-burn character study so I can't wait to watch episode 2.

i like the show because it's believable. the struggle and connection with the challenges of becoming a young adult. characters that i can relate to.

also i love and miss Ireland.

it relates to me, personally
how i am on the outer with regards to being in a circle of people like maryanne (or a reverse female version of connell - the articulate scholarship student) because of my background and circumstances- raised in a redneck town means i would have "bitten off more than i could chew" to be involved in the world of these normal people

theres nothing wrong with these people, they have the same reactions to certain things that i would have, and may even mean well to you, but i will never be close to them

∴ the hate-watch
