"I May Destroy You (Michaela Coel / HBO)"


          


Dug the first ep, I was on my toes the whole way cos after reading about the plot I was waiting for *it*

That made the vibe rather creepy, even if that wasn't the intention

Michaela Coel is a talent.... Looking forward to see where this goes

SMH @ the imdb comments so far

& Top Boy. I don't know *exactly* what to expect from this show, but I know she'll kill it.

There's a Netflix series she had that I want to watch too.

I guess it could be kept for a second season, but it feels like she is still piecing together what happened, especially wrt Simon

Also all the stuff with Kwame is kinda heartbreaking, major props to that actor

that it could have ended here. Im asumming the last two eps with wrap up his story line and possibly actually reveal what happened to her that night. Maybe.

after wasting 90mins watching the simp-ass Groundhog Day take that was Palm Springs this weekend, this was a so much more fascinating and borderline surreal version of the trope

I was very confused with the last episode initially...what was real and what wasn't. Terry and Kai's situation seemed a bit rushed. But still so raw and showing the flurry of emotions and thoughts and....just life. A really really really well done show and I hope more people take notice of Coel.


spoilery question:
Episode...5? Remember when Bella is sitting at the table with the condom guy, Henny lady, and....somebody and Bella says that the condom guy raped her and NOBODY BATTED AN EYE?! Did anyone else catch that? Was supposed to be like a 'there but not really there' moment? I thought it was so strange but honestly couldn't tell if it was a real thing or just something Bella thought she did

It was a Freudian slip... she was talking about the first rape, her brain connected that fact that condom guy "raped" her to so she said his name, then self corrected. If Im not mistaken condom guy looks up when she says it with a "HUH" expression.

I dont think he realized that what he did was rape. Clearly after she put him on blast he realized that it was rape and he was wrong.

Brilliant episode. Still trying to figure out the monologue at the beginning.

Dude walking in on her in the crib was the most awkward sad thing I've seen on TV in a long time.

I was still holding out that dude was just in the shower until that passport slid out.

The brother's storyline was dope too. I don't think homegirl was wrong to feel the way she did. COuldn't help but think if they had spent more time together before he shared that with her she might take it differently.

i kinda feel like the opening monologue was some kind of foreshadowing...i could be wrong..it just seemed so ominous

i thought Biagio was happy to see her..his acting was really good...i thought he would be sorry and take her in his arms..im clearly too much of a dumbass romantic lol

as the scene unfolded it was just terribly sad...the passport slide actually had a ton of compassion built into it...he wanted her to get home safe even though he wanted nothing to do with her

i'm glad it wasn't written with another woman there..damn..that was such a killer thing

i'm worried for Kwame...he's in so much pain and denial and isn't even really dealing with it the way Bella is

Every character feels entirely fleshed out and the dialogue flows beautifully. Entirely too real.

I'm blown away by this show, completely. A masterpiece!
