What a flawed and ribald bunch
21 April 2019 | by jarrodmcdonald-67550See all my reviews

The tension between the characters is absolutely palpable. The lewdness at the start of the series had an immature kinkyness to it, a boy dedicated to murder his (who said we were dating?) girlfriend and a girl out to sexually activate and/or embarrass her boy. Now we see that others have much more adult problems that can have a huge impact on their lives. I particularly enjoy the weaving of the supporting characters traits and actions with the potential to impact the central narrative. The screenplay has me more than content. Coming towards its finally this show has really built an aesthetic for itself and I think the score, script and direction has a lot to contribute to that. It's been a truly fun journey deeper into the mirthy pathos of dark comedy
