Rue

[Euphoria](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphoria_(American_TV_series) on HBO is my new favourite series. Even though my experience with the American teenage upbringing is non-existent, the show is very realistic and well made. It's like Skam but with heavier drugs and … heavier of everything.

I especially like the cinematography and fast paced storytelling. You get sucked in pretty easily. The main character, Rue, is portrayed perfectly. I find it interesting how they don't romanticise youth, as other shows are doing. This show is dark – be prepared – it's not this "Youth is wasted on the young" thing. More like "I'm glad you're still alive, carrying all this shit around".
