    Arabella’s and Terry’s Italian adventures were dazzling to watch. I think that the audience needed this flashback episode to help flesh out what their friendship is about, and by extension, give these characters more separate dimensions. And Biagio? Hmmmm. I’m curious what his deal is, but I can see why Arabella was instantly drawn to him.

    With its 0.2 million HBO viewer average I am confident this is going to be this years Years and Years.

    This is disappointing, but now in retrospect I appreciate Gentleman Jack performance on HBO a bit more. The whole collab between BBCA and HBO seems strangly muted. Those shows come and go without making any noise.

    Anyway, HBO Go in my country is one week behind with the series, but just wanted to say, that I loved the last 10 minutes of episode 2. Her slow realization of what happened was really powerful, but done in a very grounded way.

    Do we have any article or something confirming this as a miniseries? All I see treats as series.

    Michaela Coel is next level in this. Fascinated by the way the show deftly navigates huge laughs one minute and devastating silence the next. Looking forward to seeing how this story evolves and how the supporting characters fold into the action. Episode three did a great job of expanding on Terry, so hopefully we get the same for others in Arabella’s circle.

    Very tense and uncomfortable episode. Poor Kwame. Poor Arabella. As vital as this show is to me right now, I don’t think I see it as a comedy at all anymore. I’m wondering where the narrative goes, though from the previews it seems like Arabella is tracking toward some type of redemption and catharsis. Michaela Coel is just stunning here. I can’t believe I’m only discovering her now.

    Michaela Cole is a pretty fantastic writer and performer. This is a deeply moving show and while difficult to watch at times, when you’re in the hands of an excellent storyteller you know putting your trust in them will pay off. There’s no agenda. This show deals with the discomfort and levity of life extremely well. Which is not an easy accomplishment.

    The critics and awards websites better push Michaela Coel and I May Destroy You like they did Waller-Bridge and Fleabag because they’re genuinely comparable (Coel probably gives a better performance actually). I’d like to see the same energy.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)
