Outstanding
21 June 2017 | by lawnboy-89652See all my reviews

You do not ever need to see a single episode of this series in order to appreciate the perfection, beauty, pain and humor of this episode. You will feel transported back in time - perhaps feel a similarity to your own youth as I did as I am the same age as the characters (33) - and go from 1992-2017. Denise handles coming to terms with being gay and her old fashioned mother who actually is just afraid for her. It sounds dark and serious, but it isn't! It is real and so funny and so fresh. And the end is satisfying and comes full circle. The casting was spot on for the younger versions of Denise and Dev. Bravo - I am clapping still. Watch this with your parents, friends, anyone.
