A group of high school students navigate love and friendships in a world of drugs, sex, trauma, and social media.
It takes a few episodes to get going but it gets REALLY good. The fourth episode builds so much tension that I had to stop watching it to ask people what was going to happen because I got so worried. There are a lot of relatable and likeable characters. Nate's dad is actually really sweet, just very damaged; and Jules is a beautiful ray of goodness. My biggest criticism is that the editing could be snappier--I did a lot of skipping over inconsequential bits. Overall, Euphoria captures the travails of youth really well, without being condescending or pandering.
