    Yeah, I’m pretty sure he meant that minority of teenagers do drugs and sleeps around.

    There is no “definitive version of American Life in 2017” because there is not one singular experience. Sure a minority of kids might relate to this but just because they’re a smaller group doesn’t make there stories less valid. There were a lot of areas of this show that I related too and and know people that do as well, that doesn’t mean everyone has too. I totally understand people that have a hard time with this show, even though I like it. But there’s no need to blankly say that nobody relates too it because you don’t.

    Nobody said it tho. But when people like Caelin Cripps say: “you must not understand what it is truly like to be young in 2019” or something along these lines, what imo implies that he thinks that’s how life of average teenager truly looks like, someome is gonna call bullshit.

    Well, if that’s what Stegeo meant then my apologies for the misunderstanding, but that comment was poorly worded regardless.

    Full disclosure: I have not even watched this show, I just saw that comment pop up on the sidebar of recent activity.

    This was wild and not in a fun way. Way to try hard and on the nose. Say what you want about 13 Reasons Why, but at least that is grounded in reality. This gave me fever dream.

    Love, stop trying to shove Euphoria and Zendaya down our throats. She is a mediocre actress at best and so is this show. Everyone likes their own things, and being young in 2019 isn’t doing drugs, being melancholic for literally no reason and getting shagged here and there as this show depicts. This trashy American culture is not what young people are going through. These characters are what? 18? I was 18 2 years ago (it’s painful to say that out loud btw) and all I cared about was getting into university so I can have a decent future and so did every kid my age. I wasn’t sad for no reason because I want attention in my life, nor was I doing drugs. Only the minority can actually relate to this show.

    Just because I liked the pilot and really want Zendaya to succeed does not mean I’m “shoving it down your throat.” I’m allowed to express my opinion just as much as you are 😉 She’s only been in a few projects outside Disney, but from what I’ve witnessed she’s earned praise for each performance (especially this one).
    And I must ask, but how would you exactly know what young people are going through simply because this wasn’t your experience? I was 18 two years ago as well and most of the stuff portrayed here was pretty accurate (the partying, the drug use, how mental health is depicted, teenagers exploring their sexuality). Most young people simply aren’t sad for attention, but they are sad because of what’s taking place in society and many try to find ways to cope with it whether it be social media, drugs, etc.

    I’m sorry but as a young person myself I do understand what life for an average teenager looks like. We may not all have the same experiences and I think you are missing that point. Just because your life was one way does not mean the characters depicted here are not an accurate representation of 2019 culture.

    WTF… not impressed with episode 2. Pacing drags and some of these people cannot act; the fact we’re having so many stereotypes thrown together does not help either. For sure a decline.

    This show remains visually stunning but the writing drags. Also that “twist” was incredibly predictable.

    By “twist,” do you mean the reveal of ShyGuy118? If so then yes, very predictable. Do you think he’s actually into her, or just catfishing her into danger?

    Yes, like I basically thought it was assumed and til it was directed like some big reveal at the episode’s end. As for his intentions, I’m really unsure, the way they talked about his reluctance to look at dicks in the locker room makes me think he’s afraid to be vulnerable and let that urge win, so he actually is into her.

    I think he plans on killing her.
