I didn't have a relationship like this but certain moments are painfully relatable to my early 20s.

Also it is absolutely not a coincidence that a Jo Swinson lookalike was cast as Joanna.

I'm a few episodes in — the soundtrack and cinematography are really fantastic.

I know the criticism has been that it's just another straight love story but it has already broached various topics — consent, mental health, bullying, domestic abuse — in a fairly nuanced and realistic way that just isn't present in a lot of similar media. I'm glad that is being shown in a healthy way.

Sat all day and watched this with the wife who cried the whole way through it.

Really good though, sort of was able to relate to it as it was very realistic of moving from a rural Irish town to the big smoke for uni.

I watched it all and found it weirdly addictive.

There’s not that much to it though and at odd times I was watching like what like it didn’t follow on greatly if that makes sense I had to keep checking I was watching in the right order.

But I did enjoy it

Yeh was like different chapters of the book.

Very relatable to my experience of uni not fitting in and all!

been watching it at a very slow pace and finally finished! loved it!
nothing big happens in most episodes but I kinda like that in a tv series


they also used great songs, in particular Lisa Hannigan's Undertow at the end of episode 4,
Nerina Pallot's cover of Love will tear us apart and Ry X - Berlin

Yeh 'Berlin' was perfect for it especially with the episode in Sweden due to the snow and all.

I have already had the chance to see the first two episodes and so far I'm very impressed. I've already read the book before and so far they have made a very good adaption. The two leads, especially, are cast perfectly.
