    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I loved the line ‘good, or good considering?’ She’s such a talented writer as well as performer.</p>
    The show is making bigger waves here in the UK as expected, but I hope it finds its footing amongst international audiences. I imagine it’ll be a big online hit.

    What is this considered as a comedy or a drama?

    Also is this considered as a limited series?

    It’s a limited series. The rest is subjective and doesn’t matter for Emmy consideration. I think the marketing places this as a comedy. I think of it as a drama, or at least a dark comedy.

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

    Episode Title: “Don’t Forget the Sea”

    Synopsis: Three months earlier, Terry visits Arabella in Ostia, Italy, where she’s living large on her agents’ dime. After procuring party favors, Arabella and Terry each have a wild night of their own.

    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.

    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.

    I think you mean BBC One not BBCA 🙂

    Although I do agree it seems strange that outside of three Critics Choice noms for Years and Years, the performance of BBC/HBO collabs seem to be cursed awards wise.

    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.

    Episode Title: “That Was Fun”

    Synopsis: Back in London and two months after the incident, Arabella meets with a therapist, who encourages her to find relaxing and creative ways to cope with her trauma. Still anticipating the first draft of Arabella’s book, her agents assign another client, Zain, to help her with the writing process. Kwame introduces his modest new love interest, Damon, to a stranger he met online.

    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.
