Rich and I have been binge watching the show Euphoria recently. Our kids who are all young adults between the ages of 19 and 23, had been talking incessantly about it amongst themselves and we both became very intrigued (I think they regret it now!). 

We just finished season one and are about to indulge in season two which began airing a couple of weeks ago. 

I’d first like to say that the cinematography in the show is nothing short of brilliant. 

The show though is filled with so much drama and very raw emotion. It’s dark, it’s deep, it’s messy, it’s heavy, it’s EXTREMELY graphic and explicit and overall I’d have to say very, very disturbing. 

The show centers around the lives of many young teenagers, therefore there is a warning at the start of each episode of the mature and explicit content you are about to watch and then follows up at the end of each episode with the contact information for Kids Help Phone (in Canada) in case you are in need of immediate and confidential support or someone to talk to.

Euphoria is quite honestly every parent’s worst nightmare(s) times a thousand and tackles very mature and deeply emotional subject matters but at the same time can provide for and open up many important conversations, deep discussions and teachable moments that pertain to many of the issues that our Gen Z’s are trying to navigate through in the world today.

I’ve been unable to watch most types of dramatic television shows for many years now because they often trigger me and I can have a very difficult time controlling my anxiety or separating my emotions when I do but here I am, ten episodes down of Euphoria, completely drawn in. It’s like waiting for a train wreck to happen; at times extremely difficult to watch, yet somehow unable to look away.

If you or someone you know is in need of immediate mental health support please call or text Kids Help Phone or Wellness Together Canada (or your local hotline). Please know that you are never alone and that someone is always ready and willing to listen.
