I’ve been repeat viewing.

Episodes 1-4, taken as a whole, are quite incredibly impactful. Absolutely outstanding.

Episodes 5-8 are excellent in part. I thought ‘Bully’ (episode 7) was very strong.

I thought the finale was a bit cliched: especially the ‘Nick abandons rugby game to be with lover’ thing, which I felt I’d seen before in too many American films. But his coming-out to mum was moving.

Exceptional acting by the two leads.

The level of emotional intelligence in the interactions stretches credibility with regard to the screen ages of Nick and Charlie. I realise it’s faithful to the source material, but on a ‘blank sheet of paper’ basis I’d have written the parts as Year 13 and 12, respectively (ie, sixth form).

The producers have a tough ask in retaining the magic through series 2.

I think it's a high level of fairy tale and wish fulfilment rather than an accurate mirror on real life.
I came out at school when I was 16 and it was definitely more like The Inbetweeners than Heartstopper.
But you know write the world you want rather than what you're stuck with. If you want people to grow up more emotionally literate then show them how, give them some role models and get them swept away by the magic of it.

I will say that if any of the rugby team had run off the pitch to hold my hand mid game then they probably wouldn't have needed to do much coming out after that. I would also have probably shit myself.

Yeah, going in I'd always taken it as a fairy-tale type thing based on what I'd read.
To be honest I was expecting to think it was naff (and a few small patches are) and give up after a couple of episodes. Instead I'm somewhat obsessed.

Once you start reading about the little things you might have missed...
(watch Charlie everytime food is mentioned or offered to him)

Its a very clever show. Really really well done. It deserves a lot of awards.

i binge watched it in one night instead of sleeping. it was so nice to have a LGBTQ+ themed show with zero sex and minimal trauma. everything is always so bitter, jaded, and traumatic. so much alphabet mafia entertainment is just awful broken people being awful to each other. it was a nice change having something lighter and not so emotionally draining.

I don't know about the UK, but in the US, the "broken people being awful to each other" and the trauma are simply real life for many LGBTQIA+ people because of how the US is now.
