Heartstopper
Graphic novel / Netflx series
#1




I saw the trailer and then binge read all 4 volumes of the graphics novels.

It's strange that some of the issues that come up are - for me - easier to deal with in the graphic novel but I dread seeing them in a live action series. That's assuming Netflix sticks to the original storyline...

Anyone else who's read the novels and is looking forward yet also dreading the Netflix series???

Never read the books, but might check this out. Cheers for posting about it, even if it was with dread.

I wonder if UK gay teens, realise how good they have it. So many gay themed shows and films to view, so easily.

For me, it was just Beautiful Thing, Trick and Get Real, but you had to seek them out and I only heard of them because of the old fmforums. Then Queer as Folk came along and was the first mainstream show I can remember. Although I did latterly discover Armistead Maupin's Tales series, years after it aired.

I don't know anything about it, but after watching the trailer and seeing that the characters are high school age (under 18 Baby ) I think it's very unlikely that the film version will have any graphic sex/nudity.

Agreed. Those three films and QAF were amazing to watch. Beautiful Thing, to me, is stil the gold standard for movies like that even though I realise it's unfair. The time that it came out, the age I was- nothing modern can compare.
I believe they are , of course, currently re-imaging QAF (US) in a new series and again, I don't believe it can live up to the original, either the US version or the original original UK version.

It'll be a mini series, not a movie and the actors are mostly still actually school-age. I'm sure audiences will be surprised by that given that most other shows set in school feature 20 to 30 year old actors.

The main point to note is the characters are out’n’proud. Or at least, happy, well-adjusted gays. With supportive friends and family. Smile

It's aimed at a slightly younger audience I think. It's more "wholesome". There's talk of going out and love but not sex. Kids actually talk to their parents. It's not an ideal world though, there's still homophobia, transphobia, bullying, etc.

I've binge-watched the series and it is probably the most faithful adaption of source material ever. (The author of the web-series created the show so that obviously played a big part).

Same with me - Beautiful thing I actually managed to get on video - and then came along QAF.

It was so sweet, but still felt believable. I'd have loved it if a series like that had been around when I was younger.
The cast all seem lovely as well. On Instagram it looks like Joe Locke and Sebastian Croft get on very well.

Only 2 left to go (I'm watching 2 a week so I don't get overwhelmed)

I cry every episode. I think there's something wrong with me.
LOL

That's insane self control!
I blew through them in 2 evenings and then snuggled under a blanket and rewatched them all again on the third day lol.

Mostly just sat with a big stupid grin on my face going awwww, until the last episode, then I was in bits.

Very excited for even more.

It absolutely destroyed me too.  Confused

I was equally as surprised by my reaction (and also had to watch it gradually).

It caused an unexpected sense of loss for me. I found it hard not to watch without thinking how different life might have been had just some of that been my teenage experience. 

But I loved it. Sweet, tender and believable. I loved the whole cast, and I'm very happy that younger generations get to see it Smile
