An excellent, well-written show, that does an applaudable job of describing the nature of internet friendships. The normality of these two teenagers' lives in comparison to the way they see each other is humorous and really endears the viewer to the show. Just another example of the excellent material being produced by the BBC these days. It's nice to see a show that doesn't try to patronise young people, but remains funny, dramatic and highly entertaining. The scripts are thought out extremely well and the dialogue and effects are superb. Another aspect that is interesting to see is how the two teens struggle with their feelings for each other and their feelings for 'real-life' friends. When it comes to choosing (as Saskia has to choose between Max and her friend Renee, or her more-than-friend Ernesto) a monologue of their thoughts keeps the viewer up-to-date on their feelings of guilt and frustration. The technique of having characters talk to the camera is one employed in many shows, which doesn't always work. But in Noah and Saskia it compliments the themes of the show perfectly, and ensures that the viewer is not left behind and can really empathise with Noah and Saskia.
The acting from the two main roles is incredible, and they have a lot of talent. I hope to see both of them take their careers further, because I was genuinely impressed by the level of maturity that is clear in every single episode.
If you haven't seen this show yet, be sure to check it out. I love it!
