I am all in
16 August 2020 | by theknownamesSee all my reviews

I admit it I rewind scenes. this show is exceptional the rapport between friends the dialog the content all sound so technical for a show that genuine, that feels. I would say that this is a brave show but it's more than that it's educational and it does uncomfortable in the way it's meant to be. These issues need to me under a light. It makes me glad for the world we live and the times changing. It explores what we normally brush off or conceal. A series that starts a conversation. Like a shot heard round the world . It took a long time for me to get in board with women's 'issues' (for lack of a better term) , being a woman myself one would think I would be in at jump but I had trouble making the leap. I grew up in a time when exploring these concepts will have felt disrespectful I can't believe I said that but it's true. Self respect. Now that's something to grow on. I wish I could write better , this deserves a well put review . I have been a fan of Micheals Coel since the show about monsters a while back. I was so sad it wasn't brought back for a season 2 but if this is why , it this is the direction !! She is a true inspiration. Anyway I put this review here just to say what I want to say about it rn, this episode was more of what I love about this show there are some developments and resolutions and I am pleased to meet her family too - no spoilers Now I can't cancel my HBO subscription , I can't.
