Just finished Ep.8. I don't like it. It's just a mediocre half-baked drama series about gen z. The characters are unrealistic and too stereotypical. Tried too hard to be deep when it's shallow.

Another HBO production about youth, I was a little bit worried because the comparison with Euphoria was inevitable but this show came across making its own way, more chaotic and more shallow maybe but with more depth on its plot, focusing mostly on finding their own identity. The cast was great and even if we didn't get to see more about some characters it works for a mini serie, can't wait for next season. Edit after watching the second part of the first season: Remember when I said this was shallow? How wrong I was! I have to say this is even better than Euphoria and while that show focused on be the hero of their own stories and make the viewers wanting to be like them, wich by the way there is nothing wrong with taking your flaws and throw 'em to society right on their faces, Genera+ion shows the struggle of the Z Generation on USA, maybe you can relate or maybe not but the interpretation it's there, every single episode will make struggle as much as the characters and that's an accomplishment. Can Chase Sui Wonders get the nominees she highly deserved for this amazing work?

[HBO] In its representation of queer youth from a less melodramatic point of view than usual lately, but much more vital, crazy and absurd, the series works well. The show is chaotic and sometimes doesn't make a lot of sense, but this teenage madness is the best it offers, although perhaps it needs a greater depth in the characters. It feels as shallow as the young people it reflects.
