I’ve totally heard the rave reviews about 13 Reasons Why @MsBlueStreak! I’m actually getting back up to speed with Riverdale (why, oh why was it on a break?!?) and also season 2 of How to Get Away With Murder.
@ElleBelle there were both graphic, and according to the producers deliberately heavily uncomfortable, rape scenes and the suicide scene.
It was explained in the post series behind-the-scenes thing that they didn’t want to shy away from how ugly either circumstance is – because they didn’t want to glorify any of it by making it arty. (They also included comprehensive warnings at the start of each of those episodes so you were forewarned)
@NickiPower I think Netflix was recommending that to everyone. I decided what the hell, because I was in need of a new show anyways.
I actually had fun laughing along whilst totally not missing the serious point they were raising about race relations (and the ability of the privileged to bulldoze right over it in the name of stupid issues).
@walk_on_walls I’m not sure where you are in the series but it appears Ethel hasn’t reappeared, I dunno – I think there will be a second storyline. It just seems weird that it seemed like she was all chummy with Chuck post-spa incident.
@nickipower I just finished the last two eps on the weekend. It looks like there will be a season 2, so maybe Ethel will have a bigger role there. In the comics, she has a crush on Jughead – that would interesting to see.
Finished Season 3 of Schitts Crk in the last few days with the lady – was pretty good although as with a lot of American shows the concept is wearing thin. Also watched the new BFG last night – pretty good but not much happened compared to the book as I remember it!
