Worth the hype
16 October 2019 | by mfarinSee all my reviews

This is a brilliant and realistic portrayal of modern day high school life. The pilot is what got me hooked. I have never encountered such beautiful cinematography and visuals for a show. The music is incredible and adds so much depth to each scene. Zendaya leads the cast in a haunting performance. This is the first time I've ever seen drug addiction and it's devastating effects captured brutally honest on screen. You get inside Rues head and what it's like to be an addict. You get an inside look at the chaos and destruction and heartbreak at the center of addiction and the lives of those who love an addict.
