    Man...I'm surprised that there isn't a thread for this.
    I remember when the commercials came out and I thought it looked interesting.
    Finally got around to watching it and it's very good.
    Have to overlook some things at times but for the most part, it moves along quickly. Alternating between 3 different story lines.
    My only complaint (other than having to suspend reality at times) is that how they'll completely skip an important event and only show the aftermath. I don't think it is very effective at all.
    And from time to time I'm wondering if I actually missed the scene.
    Anyway, it's been solid through the first 7 episodes.

    7.5/10 so far

    Came in expecting something else, but realized it's August so it ain't happening, at least not in Texas.

    I watched the first episode of Euphoria and felt uncomfortable....while I imagine Larry would love it, I just can’t imagine getting comfortable with it enough to watch an entire season....am I wrong here?

    I actually haven't watched it but had it spoiled anyways.

    It's getting good reviews so it cant be too bad. But yeah like you implied, it's got some heavy hitting issues like rape, drugs, etc so not for everyone.

    I have been watching Snowfall from the pilot. It's really good fictional approach to the rise of crack in South L.A.

    I’m disappointed. I thought they were on Season 4 so was binging it and halfway through Season 3, it stopped. Now I gotta wait week to week.

    But it’s great.

    Yeah...it's not as good as the Wire. But it's somewhere near the top of that second tier. Maybe slightly unbelievable at times but not so much where it takes away from the show.

    I remember watching this doc as a kid and being traumatized. I like how Snowfall incorporated Little Rock in the show.

    Saw that a couple of years ago...pretty riveting.

    Anyway, finished Snowfall. Looking forward to them developing the Little Rock story. Also of course Saint and Reed's stories. Good stuff.

    Two seasons down, two to go.

    It's taken some time for this one to grab me but it did halfway through season 2. At first I wasn't feeling how easy it was for Franklin, from kid to basically become kingpin. Everything happened way to fast. Some guy taught him a secret recipe in one night and for no reason? That's weird. Imo, what happened to Lucia is what should have happened to Franklin from the get.

    8/10 series thus far.
