I may destroy you premiered last night on HBO the mic hello Cole directed created series and starring her which I think the last time we really spoke about my Keller Cole was probably black earth rising from Netflix looking at the genocide in Africa okay was it the Rwandan genocide was yeah that came out early 2019 so go check our review and summary on that.
We had some thoughts I think overall we felt like there were some good aspects but didn’t really. I hope that you would like my summary. If I was big confusing wasn’t really like written super well-squandered potential I’d say yeah but my kind of cool I think always kind of stood out as someone keeping our eye on to see her really get this opportunity to shine and in this 30-minute.
I was a drama-comedy type thing like it’s tough to tell from the first episode because you know it ends with some really tough being up until then it’s kind of I made like insecure something where she’s kind of like goofy right show set in London and that’s the thing reading a lot of the reviews which of course I’ve seen more of the show it’s a 12-episode series so will this will take us through August but reading a lot of those reviews. This is gonna be an epic for this summary.
They’re all harping on where we end in that pilot and it’s funny that you just go off the pilot you might not understand where the show is going but it’s an I think it’s being marketed as like an unorthodox view at consent when it comes to sex and stuff like that and I think we’re gonna get the worth at where the show is gonna take us in terms of Cole’s character Arabela kind of realizing that she was raped on that night in the first episode and coming to grips with that and actions to follow throughout the season.
You almost like he said don’t really get that vibe early on and I think that the way this shows gonna handle tone seems to be a lot of the source of a lot of praise were handling heavy themes that Cole I personally her she has it talked about being resulted as well so you know she’s bringing this into her work cause.
She wrote the whole show so I think of the first episode you’re right you kind of get that insecure vibe there’s these friends there are these other characters there are these work stressors right she’s like a famous author uh we hit one hit book anyway right and well that’s all familiar but I think you gonna like this summary. We’re really gonna get into like some deeper heavy stuff and that is pretty exciting because of I think the talent everyone is seen in coal as a creator.
I’m just curious to see how we’re gonna see this tone handle so I’m absolutely challenging stuff yeah and I think the speaking to the tone of the first episode for the at least the first like 27 minutes of it or so is really just introducing you to Arabella as this bit eccentric writer you know kind of doing her own thing very of the very much like a product of this modern generation.
Where she’s obviously like a big dick to her phone and you know she travels to Italy just to have a hook up with this guy that she kind of likes and I guess wants to be more and he’s kind of stringing her along and she’s you know peeing with the door open with her friends and you know instead of writing goes out to party with her friends for a little while and then the tone really shifts I think at the end as you see her seems to be drugged out with these friends kind of falling out of her chair and expectedly and then very much out of it.
She presents this book and the last pages of the book which seemed to she wrote while she’s drugged or obviously come across very strange and not really making sense and then at the very end she has flashed back to some and they’re raping her having sex with her I think that’s gonna kind of be one of the themes about this is like the idea of consent and then she’s just kind of like looking at the camera and likes the summary.
You’re kind of left with this idea of like oh this show totally flips here in these last like five-ish minutes as you see her it seems to be drugged and then had this experience the sexual experience and I’m really fascinated by it because I think Arabella is a character it feels very engaging and also just like fun to be around.
Which I think they establish right off the bat really well but then the surrounding characters also I think are pretty engaging there’s a lot of like I think very interesting things that play like her best friend there I think his name is Terry Terry played by ware which Opia who’s either like engaged or married I’ll buzz him said the side chick and the fiance wants to have a threesome.
I thought that was pretty funny and like seeing him and his friend like give each other like looks well the two girls are they talking to each other that was funny I’m really interested to see Papa do who plays her gay best friend who comes I forgot his name but comes to like to visit her I thought he was really fun while he was there and just like he’s doing a lot of acting with his face I thought okay so there’s a lot of like ethics. It is a great review.
I’m really interested in I think like you alluded to there’s a lot of lottos come that is probably the main reason to stay tuned in any aspects that stood out to you or anything that you really liked about the first episode so I know that you gonna like the review. The music stands out it’s kind of obvious thing to your lack drop little seems to drop cool performs truffle butter at karaoke while the night’s still going well that’s cool that’s choice again cop to insecure yeah picking great but not mainstream songs.
That’s fun yeah again like I’m just really curious to see where this takes us because all the reviews have really followed a specific thing and we really just got a taste of that the end violence oh but it seems like it’s going to be an interesting time and you know I want that I’d rather something be challenging art when it comes to tackling lean really heavy stuff like sexual assault me too.
That’s good another co-production from HBO and the BBC getting a lot of that like Earth rising was a co-production with Netflix so coal seems to really stick to her roots with that’s cool so yeah I’m very very intrigued looking forward to this we’ll be talking about I may destroy you in August when it wraps up so I hope that you must have liked my review.
