You know Nate wants McKay’s cum from that scene. Best part of the episode and nicely executed.

I like both actors and I think they did a great job, R29 -- but honesty, I'd have preferred to watch them discuss the weather for an hour than this endless rehash of addiction issues. It's just the same thing, over and over again. I realize that this is probably a very accurate representation of addictive behavior ... which is why I've always run very far in the opposite direction when I've encountered an alcoholic or drug addict IRL.
But again, I agree that this my issue and the show will continue to hinge on Rue's struggle with substances, so I'm just going to shut up now.

Hunter Schafer has noticeably aged since the first season, and so have the other actors to varying degrees. But of the main cast, Hunter looked the most different.

I found the premiere underwhelming. The greatest challenge the show faces is not relying too much on style over substance. Last season, they pulled it off. This episode felt like overkill. Why are they shooting the whole thing on 35 mm now? What was with the lingering end sequence of stagnant party shots? It felt like an over-budget American Apparel photo shoot and nothing Fiona Apple didn't do better with the "Criminal" music video. There was another random scene where Sydney Sweeney's character (who I really like) hides in the bathroom from Nate's ex-girlfriend for what seemed like half the episode. Why? It felt like an oddly placed French farce. I'm happy that Rue made a new friend at the party, but disappointed she still went back to Jules, the can-do-no-wrong character who everyone inexplicably obsesses over.

Thought most of the series was focused on working class high school kids?
Where are these drug parties taking place? Who owns these huge homes with pools? Where tons of drug addled kids run amok.
In most films, and TV series, showing partying teens, and even people in their early 20s, it's usually the rich kids houses where parties are held. Wealthy parents travel a lot, certain types of parents don't actually supervise their kids lives, they just throw money and 'things' at them: expensive cars, trips etc.
I went to art school with many kids like this, I was not friendly with them, but was certainly familiar with their unsupervised lifestyles. That aspect is believable, neglected teens and young people, from wealthy backgrounds, who have so much money then can throw parties every weekend and buy tons of drugs.
The aspect which doesn't ring true, poor kids hanging with rich kids, not so much. Most people hang with their own socio-economic group, are we to believe the poor kids are hanging with the rich kids?

This series is like looking at endless photos taken by Davide Sorrenti, Larry Clark, Ryan McGinley, Nan Golden and Dash Snow. Endless photos of very self-destructive young people who live in their own little world, thinking they will live forever.

R51, all the photographers I listed basically shot the dark underbelly of NYC's drug and art scenes, from the 1970s through the early 2000s. As expected, so many involved were from privileged and very wealthy backgrounds.
Dash Snow was a real piece of work, he died in 2007 at 27 from a heroin OD in a $325 a night downtown NYC hotel.
Dash was Uma Thurman's nephew. Dash was entitled with nothing better to do with his trust fund but get high, fuck anything that moved and photograph all his low life partners in crime with a Polaroid. His photos were not art, but somehow art dealers bought into his grift, likely because of his very wealthy background. On his mother's side was the great-grandson of French aristocrats who were heirs to fortunes in textiles and oil-drilling equipment (from the Schlumberger oil dynasty) and founders of Houston's Menil Collection. A background like that sure helps when a person has little real talent.
Every generation has this same sort of low-life scene which someone depicts in photos, nothing new there.
Basically, Dash was yet another useless trust funder, a man with more money than brains. Next!

I was simply trying to give some people a little background re certain types of affluent young people. The types who waste their lives on drugs and booze and feeling the need to be part of a popular clique. Not everyone can easily quit drugs. Not every parent can send their kids to a high-priced rehab clinic. Poor people who end up addicted, usually wind up prostituting themselves or homeless or both.

Do viewers really care about seeing male nudity in cable TV shows? Seriously? Is that this series main draw, male nudity? Nate is such a horrible person, I could care less about seeing his dick. He really does have a punchable face. I enjoyed seeing him get beat up!
Who wanted to see that fat guy's fake cock? Not all nudity is pleasant, attractive or erotic. Guess I'm in the minority here, I'd rather a TV series have a decent storyline and good acting. This series has neither, lots of aimless young people getting high and fucking at every available opportunity.

My thoughts on S2E1:
- Zendaya is so overrated as an actress. She's unbelievably beautiful, sure, but she drags down every scene in which she appears.
- There's something so hot about Angus Cloud (Fez) even though he can't act for shit.
- Jacob Elordi is so unbeliably hot, I can't stand it. The scenes with Cassie and Nate speeding and drinking in the truck, and Nate harrassing McKay at the party were so sexually charged. Nate's horrible, but he's easily my favorite character.
- Hunter Schafer had a soft beauty in S1, but she looked surprisingly more masculine in the S2 opener. Initially, I was shocked to find out she's actually transgender...but now it seems a lot more obvious.
- Loved Martha Kelly playing a drug dealer. She was hilarious on "Baskets."
- Everyone raves about how great the show is. I still don't know why it exists and I don't particularly carea what happens to any of the characters (even though I hope Nate's face is ok!). However, the direction and music are consistently perfect. Each episide is like being in a dream.

I accidentally started watching S1E1, and because it had been so long I completely forgot I had already watched it. Anyway, it reminded me that since the character Rue was so different from Zendaya's previous roles, I was originally impressed by her performance. However, as the show progressed I quickly came to see her as the weakest link.
Zendaya is to acting as Cindy Crawford was to modeling. Neither is the best in their field, but they're smart, motivated, and easy to work with...so they managed to rise to the top of their professions.
Anyway, can someone please clear something up for me: I don't know why, but I initially got the impression Nate was in the closet. By the end of S1, he hadn't done anything particularly gay, but the McKay scene in S2 reminded me of my earlier suspicion. Was that just wishful thinking on my part since Jacob Elordi is so hot? I can't recall what planted that original seed...

In the bridge episode focusing on her character, Jules told her therapist that she wanted to discontinue her blockers. Maybe that was a way to cover for her more masculine appearance this year.
JULES: I mean, uh… Yeah. Uh, I think I really wanna go off my hormones.
JULES: Or… Well, not like everything. Probably just my blockers. I have, like, this weird sci-fi chip implant in my arm.
JULES: Yeah, and it, like, stops my voice from dropping. Um, my balls from getting bigger, you know? The kind of shit that men wouldn’t find desirable.

r112 then he's bi, whatever. He went after pre-op Jules (they sent nudes), he had tons of dick picks on his phone of various colors (couldn't be catfishing), he watching his dad fuck guys and trans partners, he was getting off on McKay's dick going in Cassie after his. He's probably not gay, but certainly bisexual. Nate likes cock.

He had the dick picks on his phone to catfish Jules who is on Gay hook-up apps (that's how Jules met Nate's dad). Apparently his dick isn't impressive enough to be sent.

Well yeah, he found out as a kid that his dad secretly fucks a lot of guys and started watching his dad's gay sex tapes. He has a shit ton of issues around his sexuality.
Whether those issues also extend to him personally being into guys? Unknown, I doubt the character can even tell. But I don't think him being into a very femme presenting Jules is the show trying to say he is. But clearly it gives Nate some anxiety because it's a little too gay.
This is also matches Elordi's thoughts in interviews.

I think Nate is supposed to be sexually conflicted, or hates that he has some same-sex attraction. Last season, he was trying to fuck Maddy - from behind - and couldn’t get hard. I think those types of events are supposed to point to his confusion. Not saying he’s not into fucking chicks, but if you’re okay fucking chicks, would you really be that angry all the time? I get the anger stems from his father as well, but I really think there’s more to it than that. I think he’s turned on/confused by Jules, and seeing his dad fuck Jules screwed with his head. He’s also extremely jealous and possessive. And no, it’s not all wishful thinking on my part - it just seems obvious there’s more to Nate’s sexuality than people think.

r126. I think it's more about Nate being traumatized or fucked up by being exposed to pornography (his dad's sex tapes) too early in his life.

Nate was exposed to porn and sex since very young. This has altered his brain and views of sex and relationships, and this is actually something that has been proven scientifically. Watching hardcore porn at a young age regularly is damaging to the brain.
It being gay sex he saw has caused a lot more issues and confusion.

Neither episode is anything like a normal episode of "Euphoria". Each is centered around just one character, and their relationship to the other.

R187 The filmmaking/production of this show is certainly art regardless of the story content, which isn't groundbreaking but well handled. I'm no "Zendaya is a genius" troll but she is not bad or uninteresting on the show. Watch the stand alone episode with her and Colman Domingo. Both are excellent in mostly one static setting with nothing but dialogue. There is a nervous energy and tension that exudes out of this series that is palpable, i.e. the carnival episode. It may be style over substance but it is captivating entertainment nonetheless.

Sydney's boobs are real, R260.
Interesting episode tonight since it wasn't focused on a character's back story. Why Nate is suddenly in love with Cassie doesn't make much sense. He was either ambivalent or outright hated her during season one. And now he wants to marry her and have babies? It seems a little inconsistent.
Hunter does look a lot more masculine this season. But in the Jules special episode, she told her therapist she wanted to stop her hormones (or take less), so that could explain why she looks different.

[quote]One question I have: Cal mentioned hating his son. Did he give Fez money as a reward for beating up Nate, or was he just trying to be intimidating?
I took it as Cal rewarding Fez for the well-deserved (and long overdue) comeuppance to Nate. Cal seems to recognize Nate's problems, but because of his own issues & his awareness that Nate is on to him, he can't really do anything about it. I think this season ends with Cal trying to stop Nate, but Nate exposing him & blowing up the whole family.
I watched a Euphoria marathon yesterday; once you get passed the shock value, it kind of reminds of "My So Called Life" with nudity. I thought it was interesting & you felt for the kids in spite of the bad behavior & disastrous decisions, but I didn't really buy Nate as American Psycho & the Fat Girl Dominatrix. That Nate could spin all these webs, manipulating his way out of an assault charge & Kat could be the exploiter - rather than the exploited - just seemed far fetched.

While I enjoy Euphoria, last night it occurred to me that I genuinely don't care about any of the characters' relationships, or whether they live or die. I don't sense any genuine affection between characters, and there's nobody's death I'd find devastating. It might cross an uncrossable line in TV, but if the series ended with all the main characters dying in a school shooting, THAT would tear my heart out.
Anyway, my favorite characters are Nate and Maddy simply because they're hot and cause chaos wherever they go.

Oh, I don't know; a lot of posters bash Zendaya, but even at her worst, Rue is a person you still want to root for & hope she makes it. At the same time, you realize the deck is stacked against her to stay sober & she clearly doesn't know how to function as a person who isn't high as a kite on something. She can be bratty & raging one minute & pitiable the next, but you still care about her even if you understand how other people are completely exasperated with her. I also like McKay because he's coming to that realization that many people come to when they leave high school - I am not as great/smart/talented as I thought I was. Everyone else in the wider world is the same or better.
I don't know doubt that people like Nate exist - I guess it was just the little "sex offender" plot twist that he used on the kid from the party & Jules seemed a bit much. At the very least, the kid from the party surely had to explain to someone (emergency room, cops, etc.) what happened to him, which would've been a good time to say "the crazy boyfriend of this girl that I fucked at a party, that I had no idea was underaged, is stalking & harassing me." Since all the kids are sending nudes to each other, why would Nate have an upper hand on Jules as "child porn"? Unlike the other kids, Jules appears to have a supportive parent she could turn to.

Sociopaths do this to make their victim feel more isolated, more vulnerable, than ever. If she were close to home, she could just run back home and go to her room, her safe space, and deal with being dumped. It's usually about her going "no, don't leave me!

This is a show that should use a diverse group of writers. Some shows would benefit from that, and this is that type of show that would.
I heard a few of the cast have taken issue with season 2 while filming, including Sydney Sweeney who doesn’t understand why she’s now naked in every single episode. Some feel it’s getting too pornographic, and supposedly some are taking issue with Jacob’s huge bump in screen time and that he’s one of the few who Levinson will listen to, while fucking up the other characters minus Rue, of course because Zendaya is his star and now a producer.
Supposedly on the first season the actors had some input in building their characters but this time they don’t minus Jacob and Zendaya, and they’re not taking issue with Z because she’s the star (and a star) but they are with Jacob getting special treatment, and supposedly a Nate redemption arc is underway because of Jacob.
|by Anonymous||reply 366||January 22, 2022 5:28 AM|
Sydney's naked because she has to pull the weight for Zendaya not getting naked and the world is not ready to see an actress like Hunter naked. Also, I think they are being cautious with Hunter’s nudity as anything they do will come off as exploitive no matter what. Jacob is their male lead, I still don’t understand why he did not get his stand alone episode during hiatus. There must be a very big story about that, which I hope it comes out at some point. He is really the only strong male lead and as such that is the show’s fault that it is much more gender unbalanced from the start. Considering McCay is away at college, Lukas’s character wasn’t in high school and Fez was to be killed off, they’ve done a shitty job of developing male characters. Nate’s brother should have been younger, not older, and emerging as an even wilder version of him, but they blew that chance.
|by Anonymous||reply 367||January 22, 2022 9:26 AM|

The nudity thing is so weird to me. I was recently watching am episode of Emily in Paris, and in one scene at a hammam, Lilly Collins (the star) was the only one not showing her breasts. So far in Euphoria, Zendaya, an EP, goes through great lengths not to show her tits.
If finding excuses to get women naked isn't exploitative, the lead actresses should be down with the cause. But they know exactly what's going on---as they act like Times Up acolytes.

Didn't Hunter expose her breast(s), as it were, in season 1? I thought it was early on and meant to establish for anyone who was still in doubt as to her nature. The show seems to be egalitarian wrt male and female nudity. But Sweeney might have a valid complaint, you don't see Maude Apatow baring all. yet.

The show is a bit gratuitous in its nudity, particularly when these are supposed to be underage high schoolers. It’d make more sense if they were at least in college. The storylines would maybe be a bit more appropriate too. I really liked the first season, but what I’m starting to feel is that it’s a bunch of backstories that aren’t really moving forward.

R379 that’s a huge complaint about the show from not only parents, but on TikTok many young people feel having them be minors vs college students romanticizes what is happening on the show and is promoting child porn.
The lead always get a lot of say when they’re a big star. Zendaya doesn’t do nudity because she is Zendaya and doesn’t have to. It was placed in her contract. Same with Lily Collins or SJP. In SATC she’s the only one who never did nudity. Whether you like it or not, it’s common.
Jacob isn’t the male lead. The show only has one lead, and that’s Zendaya. Every other character is supporting.

Jacob wasn't a star when he got the part in Euphoria. He was just the pretty guy from The Kissing Booth.
I think it's unfortunate when stars do the whole "I don't do nudity!". They are the ones who could actually make sure it remains appropriate for the scene without becoming exploitive (oh look! Big star gets naked, now you really must watch this!).

I don’t get the complaint from someone upthread that Nate’s brother should have been younger. Nate being the younger brother seems way more appropriate based on his personality. His brother was never meant to be a character on the show. You see him because the show gives each character a backstory.
Also, in the family photos you see they have a 3rd child who is younger than Nate. The show has yet to mention what happened to the 3rd boy but I think we will find out one day. Nate is the middle child. Many TikTokers have theories that the third kid is dead (and that psycho Nate killed him and the parents covered for Nate) or that Ashtray is the kid and the mother is head of the drug cartel now.

The issue with this show is that Sam Levinson is the shows ONLY writer. In ways the show benefits from that but in others it doesn’t.
During the first season he began finding the actors to play those characters as he wrote and let them have a bit of influence over some storylines but now he is only listening to Z and supposedly his little pet Jacob and everyone else is getting mad because they feel he’s fucking up the vibe and their characters and more worried with shock value than story telling for season 2.

Most of the casts main issue with season 2 is how dark things get. Levinson said this season gets very dark as it plays out and many of the actors don’t like how dark things get for their characters and the stories. They feel he should have kept things like season 1, dark with a small mix of humor.
However, while filming an episode him and the actress who plays Kat got into a heated argument about her character and she walked off set. He then cut a bunch of her lines and had to quickly change some things and cute her role down for the rest of the season, didn’t put her in the main trailer and she didn’t even show up for the premiere. Who knows if this will be a Dianna Agron/Ryan Murphy situation where he now fucks her over

Darren Criss said the reason him and Murphy didn't have drama is Darren never complained about his storyline, he got his scripts and did his job.

I thought that too, but look at Normal People and how much graphic sex/nudity that had. Pus, when you eliminate the graphic nudity & drug use, it's kind of your average school about high schoolers/young adults. Pretty girls with low self-esteem, fat girls finding to find an identity, cool jock with all kinds of problems, nerd with a heart of gold - all that. And of course the novelty of trans character as the pixie dream girl character
Not sure about the Kat character, but being an unknown actress challenging a director on hit HBO show seems a bit...presumptuous. No one on that show is any great thespian, so they better keep the paychecks rolling while they can. Ask the cast of Glee about how their careers are going these days.

There’s a scene in season 1 where Nate has a meltdown and tries to fight his father, and that scene absolutely moved me. Nate and his father have such a tumultuous relationship, and seem to resent one another as well as have hatred for one another. You can tell Nate blames his father and him being exposed to so much from a young age for how fucked up and confused he is in the head, and Cal has a hatred for his son but I’m not 100% sure why yet, but you can tell he also fears him a bit.
Both actors knocked it out of the park in this scene but Elordi was tremendous, and I found it heartbreaking. Don’t get me wrong, Nate is evil and I wanna see him get stabbed, but this scene was heartbreaking to me. His reaction felt so real and sincere. And sad.

There’s so much more to it all. We are forgetting that before Nate’s meltdown he couldn’t get hard while trying to fuck Maddie, which led to her asking if he maybe is bi or gay. He was already upset he couldn’t get hard but that made him even more angry, grabbing her by her face. He goes into the bathroom, she takes the disc she sees and tries sneaking out quietly when Cal comes out of his room to tell her that Nate and her need to end things, they’re no good for one another and are wasting each other’s time. She leaves, Cal goes into Nate’s room to tell him what he did, and Nate tries to fight him. Not because of what he said, but because Nate blames his father for him being such a mess when it comes to his sexuality etc. Nate not being able to get it hard for Maddie is what set him off with Cal.

It’s not that her tits are out, it’s that they’re always out now. It feels exploitative, just like the ridiculous amounts of cock shots, and I’m gay. It feels like Levison is trying to be shocking and it’s coming off bad now.

I will say this episode made me a little emotional. In 2000 I was dating my first boyfriend and I bought a used copy of INX’s Kick during our 2nd date. Hearing heavy usage of Mystify and Never Tear Is Apart during scenes of 2 guys in love brought back memories.

Season 2 isn’t bad, it’s just missing that magic season 1 had. I guess that’s something hard to capture more than once. Season 1 felt unique and was incredibly atmospheric and moody and colorful, with high quality artistic expression.
Season 2 feels pornographic almost. It doesn’t have that ambience and color scheme and art that the first one had. This one is relying on shock value. It’s taking everything that surprised people in season 1 (like showing cock etc) and doing it 10x as much. The issue is when you do that it is no longer shocking or even a talking point. It becomes boring and gratuitous.

I dunno, I loved the opening sequence... with Cal and Derrick and the latent homosexuality and the wrestling and locker rooms and sexual explorations and stuff. And the music. The gay bar. The crushing on a best friend thing. It's kind of relatable. Fucked up, but relatable. And nice to see they didn't shy away from showing the naked guys every bit as much as the naked girls. And the two guys they got to play them were fucking HOT.

At first I was confused on the Cal flashback because there is no way Cal is meant to be 18 years older than Nate, but I forgot there is an older brother. Many closeted gay boys in high school were in love with their friends, but it rarely works out so you actually get to sleep with them. Though I get they needed that perfect happiness so the pregnancy was more crushing.

The Cal flashback was way too short.
No way does Rue's plan not blow up in her face. It will probably end with Fez having to step in and save her, which could lead to his death.
The fourth wall-breaking for Lexi's play was well done, as was the callback to the dick pic slideshow from season one.
Storm Reid, who plays Rue's sister, Gia, has noticeably aged in between seasons. She almost looks older than Zendaya.
This season does seem to be lacking the same spark that season one had. It isn't bad so far. But none of the plot threads established seem like they won't get really dark.

The Cal backstory sequence was so well done in terms of visuals and tone. It really captured the early 90s without leaning on too many cheesy 90s tropes. It was like a gay male version of Aerosmith’s ‘Crazy’ video with Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler. A real vibrant and sexy rush. The music was perfect too. This show just really knows how to convey a mood and a vibe. I’m loving season 2 as much as season 1.

Episode 3 gave me my first genuine laugh in an episode of Euphoria: The moment Nate finally acknowledges Cassie, and she ends up walking alongside Maddie...revealing the 2 are dressed and styled the exact same way.
As usual, Zendaya hamming it up was the lowlight of the episode. Maybe it's because she didn't have a normal teenage experience, but she acts like a parody of a high-schooler. Even Jacob Elordi, an Australian is more authentic...
Meanwhile the Young Cal, Lexi, and Cassie scenes were the best. As much as I hate nepotism, Maude Apatow has grown on me.

I agree that the show doesn’t have the same spark the first one did, but let’s be honest, how many shows that start off very strong and feel “special” are able to keep that feeling and recreate that same magic a second time? Even shows that have a good second season, the show never feels “as good” as that glorious first season.
That’s one positive about having a successful show where the quality isn’t so high, it’s easy to maintain that same product or make it better. It’s hard to do that when the show starts off so great. Everything gelled beautifully in season 1.
On top of that, it doesn’t help that there was 3 years in between filming each season.

R458 you’re right, and there are many shows one can use as an example of having an amazing first season and even if the next seasons were good, they never had that same spark or charm or magic the first one did. This Is Us comes to mind as a recent one. I found season 2 good but that first season felt special.

For those talking about the spark, the show runner decided to abandon some of the visuals, including things like glitter and colors, used in S1. He said he wanted a new grounded visual which is why they went with film. Over on the Euphoria reddit pages, the fans (myself included) were concerned with the loss of the ascetics; think of the Funhouse Carnival episode from S1 as a perfect example. Sam, wanted a new direction which is why they are shooting on film and color wise appear to be acting like it's a mid-90s show.
Honestly, I sort of life that they are changing things up. I loved S1 with the glitter and blue undertones, but it's been 2 years so a change isn't that bad. The show feels like it's settling into a comfortable HBO groove and grittiness.
The one things I will say about S2, is that we haven't had a moment to breath, beyond Lexi's movie fantasy. That was fun and light hearted. Everything has been so so dark or just go-go-go. No complaints on my end, but all the actors keep saying how dark things get, so I'm preparing for the worst. I think i know what's being setup but I'm not going to play the spoilers game.

Cal backstory. I had an evening to think it over. While I loved it, I'm also a tad disappointed and hope they dive more into his past. That backstory left a lot to be desired.
Cal and his wife didn't grow up in CA. The montage says his best friend was going to school out west. So how or why did they end up in California. Was he chasing after his friend and having a secrete affair?
Did Cal even go to Duke? Sucks to give up such a good school for some high school pussy.

R464 Thanks for clearing that up, I was wondering why a California guy would go to Duke. But if Derek went out west, does that mean the draw for Cal to come west was him? This does upend some of my backstory for Cal, I assumed the building business was handed down through the family, even him ending up in it was because he knocked up his girlfriend and had to reluctantly join the family business instead of going to college. Also, this confuses Cal’s intense commitment to football in this town if he didn’t grow up there playing sports for that high school? Even the chili bake-off seemed more like a long family tradition that would predate their arrival in town. Maybe it’s just all part of the facade he’s built as a kind of pillar of the community, despite really being in the deep, dirty, perverse underside of it.

r467 he could have been playing football and wrestling but excelled at wrestling. I think there are holes in the story, unless out west meant they lived in East CA, but I still don't think a single CA resident would call moving to the coast, out west since the entire state is considered the west. I'm going to assume Cal and his wife are from Ohio. But, the flashback spent too much time building up the obvious, and not exploring what happened next. I checked IMBD, the younger Cal and friend are only in 1 episode so no more flashbacks.
Still, a nice start and sexy nudity, but Sam (writer/show-runner) didn't connect the dots from repressed bisexual Cal and recording guys via rough sex Cal.

It's hard to imagine that young Cal would have turned into the more grizzled, yet still sexy older Cal (Eric Dane).

r489 that still seems odd to me. Like someone in TX saying they are going to school out east or west (depending on their location) when a local would just say in Dallas, Houston, etc. Like in IL, downstate folks don't say, "Such and such is going to school up north." "Where?" "Oh, Chicago..." Like no, you'd just say the or upstate. A person would say you are going to school up north when they mean Tallahassee. The "out" part typically means out of a state in America, likely out of an entire region.

I think part of why Cal’s backstory seemed “better” than the others is because he’s a middle aged man in modern day and his backstory had him As a teen. The teens are teens in modern day so their backstories are about them as kids. I think that’s why his was more interesting, outside of the gay thing.
His backstory was also more about him because he was older already vs the kids where we learn a lot about their families too because they were just kids.

Please, abortion is actually more common for white upper middle class suburbanites in these situations than for the poor white teen mothers. These kids look like middle to upper middle class kids.

Most of these shows don’t cast people who actually look like the older actor. Watch This Is Us. None of the Randall’s or Kevin’s look alike.

Just because Derek drunkenly hooked up with Cal does not mean Derek was ready to go skipping arm and arm and being an open couple with Cal. How many of us have hooked up with a guy that wants it to be kept a secret. Noticed that showed Cal alone in bed, not with Derek.
I'm not sure they would have ended up happily ever after. However it was the push Cal needed to admit his sexuality...had it not been for the pregnancy.

It’s said that Marsha made Cal uncomfortable at times but he was thankful that she got him to push his boundaries and that she was the most forward girl he’d ever met. She’s the one who initiated sex between them etc.
I doubt she was some “religious” girl.

Anyone else notice Derek staring down Marsha as he walks out for wrestling practice after Cal tells Derek how much he loves eating out Marsha’s snatch? Marsha notices too and is looking at him confused as he stares her down 😂

It might be a stretch to find an actor the right age, willing to do full frontal nudity and make-out/sex scenes with both men and women, who ALSO looks like a young Eric Dane. I mean... such a person MIGHT exist, but that might be one requirement too far...

The mother was literally a younger version of Maddy. Cal was smart, hot, popular, and going places. She got her claws into him and got pregnant. I think the baby was a mistake, but I don't think she much minded. He threw away Duke for her and their kid. Despite that hardship, they are worth millions and he owns a successful construction company.
One glaring difference is that he was so bright and happy. The Cal we meet as an adult is so stilted as if he's living through long-term depression.

To be fair, it’s easy to be bright and happy when you’re a teenager. And it’s easy to be stilted in your 40s/50s, after experiencing life.

I don't understand why they sat in their kitchen listening to their son fuck upstairs. That is very weird. Same thing happened in And Just Like That. Is this a new parting phenomenon to allow sons to just fuck and fuck and fuck while parents are home? What happened to sneaking around and trying to avoid such issues?

r522 a sleepover is fine, in some homes. Loud grunting, as if they are paying the mortgage & alone, is wrong. Just like parents tend to avoid explosive sounding sex when the kids are home out of respect (and to avoid trauma).
When 20 year olds bring home their significant others. They may share a room, but no one is having loud sex at the parent's house. Certainly not high schoolers. At least not in my day, I'm only 30, lol.

They are going to be off at college doing god knows in a year r523. You can't helicopter parent forever.
And true, there is a difference between sleeping over and having loud sex r524. In real life most people would be mortified of their parents hearing them have sex. Though honestly I think Nate wants to have his father hear him be a "real man" and fuck a girl. Prove that he is not like him.

I’m seeing a lot of people on social media complain how Kat’s dinner scene in episode 3 literally was planted in the middle of the episode out of nowhere with no follow up scene or anything, making it feel awkward. That is because the asshole show runner cut her other scenes due to them bumping heads and her storming off set.

Supposedly part of Barbie’s issue is that he won’t let her have any input when it comes to her character this season but he did allow Jacob and Sydney Sweeney to give ideas etc. for their characters. This really set her off.

I'd never watched the show before tonight, and it opened on Cal and Derek, so I assumed that was THE story, not just an existing character's backstory. I made the assumption that it was Derek calling Cal at the end, telling him he was HIV+. But no.
Not gonna continue watching.

My new theory is that every single main character is going to die. Some by suicide (Kat, Ethan, Cassie, Cal), some by overdosing (Gia, Elliott), some through random acts of violence (Rue, Lexi), and some through targeted acts of violence (Nate, Fez, Jules, Maddie, Ashtray).
This last episode might be my favorite of the entire series. The Cal flashback was fascinating, but my MVP was Cassie. Her scenes were simultaneously tragic yet hilarious. Loved the beauty routine montage.

R533 why would you start a series on episode 3 of the 2nd season? This isn’t a show like Law and Order. You need to have watched from the beginning to know their characters and stories, as it’s a character driven series more so than a plot driven one.

Because someone posted that scene in his IG feed yesterday. I'd never watched the show before, but if it was going to have guys like this, in a storyline like this, maybe I would. But sadly, it was a one-and-done for "Derek," whom I liked in particular.

I'm sure there's a purpose and I'm still trying to construct my own theory. Like E3, where the drug dealer's husband just walked in stark naked, when the show began with a 10-min montage featuring naked men...
Maybe the male nudity should be viewed in the context of Euphoria being some celebration of neo-feminism. The women are in control, smart, ambitious, fearless, blah, blah, blah, the men are weak, cruel, cowardly...and the exploited.

There are a lot of prosthetic penises on this show, including the one Eric Dane wore which is the story Elordi was talking about. Generally it's not that hard to figure out what is real and what is fake. Obviously if it is an erect penis on an actor, it's fake.

Angus Cloud isn’t allowed to watch the entire season (the rest of the cast get to see it all ahead of time) so he has to watch in real time with the rest of us.
Turns out it’s because he would say too much during season 1 and give away spoilers, so now he has to watch like the rest of us to know all that is happening outside of his scenes 😂

Is "young Cal" supposed to be a younger version of Eric Dane's character Cal Jacobs?
Is there not an older version of the Derek character.
What are the odds we're going to see Eric Dane having the homosex on screen? He's a nozzle, but he is still dancing on the line of hot.
Could someone summarize BRIEFLY why they included a flashback to a younger version which showed him having essentially a romance with another dude? Also, does it imply based on stuff happening in the show that he's trying to beat the gay out of his son DL minor fav Jacob Elordi? I can't be bothered to catch up on the first season.
