User Reviews

Best episode yet - mostly depression and manic behavior!
29 July 2019 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

To me this show gets better and better as it goes on! Rue (Zendaya) deals with so much turmoil, I won't spoil just wanna point out that the drama in this series is just as good the movie "Requiem for a Dream", even if it's not the next Emmy season at least in the next one it deserves at least a few nods. Sam Levinson is an incredible writer/director no matter what anyone says. I love what Euphoria has become.
