Post Euphoria (HBO)
New show on HBO, any one watching? Loved the premiere, Zendaya is sensational and Rue and Jules' frliendship will be the highlight and bright spot in the dark teen world of the show.

I thought the premiere was ok. Zendaya was good. Interested to see where the show goes.

Loving it so far. Have there been any teen dramas made on an HBO-style scale before? It seems like this should have been done long ago. Zendaya is terrific, much of the cast is so far. Hunter Schafer is great too.

I'm not a huge fan of the music video visuals in certain scenes. I know it gives it a youthful appearance, but it gets a bit distracting. I'd prefer just a dark, gritty look. But it's not enough to ruin the show either.

I know kids shows technically aren't a good gauge of acting... but there might not be a more striking change in acting talent than Zendaya. Her show, and her in particular, were just absolutely horrendous. Now? She's great!

Yeah the premiere was pretty solid. Not a big fan of Zendaya, but she is good in this so far and I do have a weakness for these dark, dysfunctional teen dramas. It seems like its going to be entertaining for the most part at least.

This is something different for HBO and I'm here for it, between this and Big Little Lies I'm now looking forward to Sunday's. Definitely a lot darker than most teen shows though as typical for HBO.

Episode 2 was solid as well. I hate to make the comparison to a Canadian classic, although since Drake is an exec producer I suppose it makes sense, but it feels like a long-overdue HBO version of Degrassi (the original Jr. High/High run, not the Drake Next Generation version).

Still getting used to the music video visuals of the series, but considering the people behind it and that it's directed to a teen audience (despite the graphic adult content), I can probably forgive that in the long run.

I've looked at more penis in three episodes of Euphoria than I've looked at my own

You ain't lying Mister Ecks. There is so much full frontal male nudity in this show, but I keep hearing from people that this is HBO making up for the lack of it GOT. No idea how true that it is, but it definitely seems like it so far.

The first three episodes of Euphoria are a terrific teen drama. Episode 4 is about as close to perfect as you can get. So many storylines weave in and out of each other against the backdrop of a carnival. Fantastic storytelling in one hour, complete with an absolutely beautiful ending between Rue and Jules.

I really hope Zendaya gets recognized next year at the Emmys. It's a bit of an unfortunate schedule to premiere a year before next year's nominations, but her performance is going to hold up.

“I think you’re a fucking faggot just like your daddy” Jules WENT there! Zendaya continues to be stupendous although episode 3 was by far her greatest. If she isn’t at least nominated it will be a huge injustice

Liked the first episode. Have LOVED the rest. The carnival episode was amazing. I am definitely obsessed with this show. No huge surprise as the creator made one of my favorite movies from last year, Assassination Nation. I love the character of Jules. I'm interested in most of the main characters though honestly the main character, Rue, is the least interesting of them.

Spoiler: show
In the carnival episode I was glued to the screen and on edge during the Nate/Jules encounter.
