While we live the quarantine life, we need new shows to watch. Well if you have Hulu, let me recommend one: "Normal People".
This 12-episode show is based on a New York Times Best-Seller. It follows the relationship between two Irish high school kids and their various life experiences through college and into young adulthood. The male lead, Connell, is a popular but misunderstood athlete. His mother is the maid for Marianne’s house, a schoolmate who lives a life of solitude away from friends and family. They eventually form a friendship and fall in love-keeping it a secret from everyone they know. Spoiler alert, this is easier said than done and their relationship grows more complex and layered over the years.
The show is beautifully shot-so many scenes in it look like they could be paintings. The two leads are really good and have great on-screen chemistry-you’ll find yourself getting really invested in their story. It reminded me a little bit of “The Wonder Years”, but a more adult version. Speaking of which, don’t watch this around the kids! There’s all types of hooking up happening throughout. All in all, a really good show and perfect for a binge watch!
