Staggeringly brilliant or silly over-the-top nonsense? Even on cable, I have never seen a show with so many penises, wonder how the younger Zendaya fans are handling that.

The episode (4 I think) set at the night carnival is not only cinematic, but better than a lot of cinema. Much is gross, there are some killer performances. (Also brave and vulnerable performances by some young actors.)

Downside: it’s absolutely right to have characters communicating by text much of the time - but it is boring to read other people’s texts.

I was prepared to hate it and it's become one of my favorite shows of the year.

I alluded to this in the music forum, but the soundtrack is staggeringly brilliant too. From the Flamingos and Randy Newman to this year cutting edge. Bunch of websites are tracking it.

Okay, now up to date with it and it is staggeringly brilliant and may be a landmark of sorts. It is still over-stuffed, over-rich, and keen to shock.

But it’s amazing.
