QUOTE
A fearless, frank and provocative half-hour series exploring the question of sexual consent and where, in the new landscape of dating and relationships, the distinction between liberation and exploitation lies. Set in London, where gratification is only an app away, the story centers on Arabella (Coel), a carefree, self-assured Londoner with a group of great friends, a boyfriend in Italy, and a burgeoning writing career. But when her drink is spiked with a date-rape drug, she must question and rebuild every element of her life.


The new show by Chewing Gum creator Michaela Coel will premiere on HBO (June 7) and BBC One (June 8).

I am honestly so excited by this, Michaela is in my opinion one of the most important voices in television right now and this looks like such a relevant show for the times we're living in.

Episodes 1-3 have been awkward yet gripping which I guess is the aim given the plot.

I was a bit weirded out at one scene however what involved a tampon... laugh.gif

Episode 4 was the hardest watch yet. Itís well acted but every episode leaves me feeling a bit like frozen if that makes sense like I just donít know how to react as itís so raw and like unfiltered. A lot of the time with TV shows what cover the subject matters this show does itís more of a left to the imagination and it focuses on the aftermath but this touches on exactly what happens at that exact time unfiltered.

The only thing that throws me is how disjointed the episodes are, like 2, 3 & 4 had little correlation


I find myself hooked and I agree the final scene of the last episode was the hardest to watch and unfortunately something that happens alot within online dating and the gay scene sad.gif.

I feel like there's a possibility the effects of ep 1 and ep 4 could combine.

I'm excited to see where this goes though! If we had all 12 episodes at once i'd be racing through them.

I have only watched the first two episodes, hope to catch up with #3 and #4 at the end of the week.

It really is a fantastic show, so raw and unfiltered, which makes it a sometimes hard show to watch but super important. Michaela really is one of the most talented people working in television right now and I really hope she will get the same treatment Phoebe Waller-Bridge had recently.

I'm trying to watch this a bit slowly as it's very intense and especially my bf can't watch more than one episode at a time, but what a show. Possibly one of the, if not the, best show I have seen in years.
