It's A Sin - the STREAMING thread
may contain spoilers
#1
Decided to give All4 a go. I’m watching the first three episodes this week, and the rest next week. Makes you realise though, 40 years ago no-one had a clue about AIDS. Not a clue.

They thought it was a gay-only disease - and spread from animals. They even used the Public Health Act (used for Coronavirus today) to lock gay AIDS patients in hospitals.

OMG, it’s so sad. Especially Eps. 3. You’ll definitely cry. Never thought it’d be that emotional. Upset

RTD is a genius.

This topic is now dedicated to It's A Sin - Streaming
Able to be watched all at once.

There'll be a 2nd topic set up for those watching each episode as it's aired on C4. Once a week.

IN THIS THREAD, PLEASE USE THE SPOILER TAGS AS APPROPRIATE - SO AS NOT TO SPOIL IT FOR PEOPLE NOT AS FAR IN AS YOU

Not as far in. Ooh, er missus. LOL

The end was very sad, though. Ritchie’s mum was a b*tch not phoning Jill until the day after he died. And lying about leaving him alone at the end. There was no call for that. You know they could’ve got on, it would just have taken time.

And poor old Jill. She must’ve carried the weight of the world on her shoulders. To see so many of her mates die within a few years, must be incredibly sad.

Judging by Insta, everyone was in bits at some point or other. But they all agree it was very good. Roll on a BAFTA award. Really exceeded expectations.

In fact, when you look at everything Russell T Davies has produced or written, you can’t disagree but he is about the only mainstream screenwriter who writes positively about gay people. Consistently.

I’m happy to be proved wrong, but I don’t think there are that many others.

Watched them all now and thought it was brilliant. It really captured the naivety and prejudice of the era and also the fun, smiles and of course utter tragedy all at the same time. Steve McQueen's Small Axe and It's a Sin - these both have to clean up at the TV awards. RTD has nailed it with this.

Fully agreed. Meantime, it’s depressing that most of the (right-leaning) media reviews concentrate more on the sex scenes than the plot.

I don’t think I’ve felt as strongly for the characters and what they went through for a long time. I’d love to read some more experiences about people that went through that period, witnessed what their mates, family were going through, that sort of thing.

No surprise about the right-wing media I suppose, unfortunately so.

Yes I also felt a strong connection with the characters - they were so happy, nice and easy to like and that's what really pulled me in. It was all very positive and human even when the tragedy unfolds.

Totally!! The way it’s written, it’s like RTD wanted you to fall in love with him.
Too late. Upset

Couldn't bring myself to binge, so doing single episodes over last few days and finished this evening.

Loved it, beautiful, haunting and heart-breaking. Am very very very (insert a few thousand more verys) at someone from the final episode, and all the more powerful because of that.

It’s also important to be positive about pos people, not treat them as outcasts. Undetectable is undetectable.

Still can’t get over this... If I was sexually active right now, I would be taking a lot more care of myself. And others.

Before it was called aids it had several other names because as scientists discovered more data names would change. When I first tested it was called GRID for gay related infectious disease.

Maybe one less very and another word to explain what your talking about.

I guess he means angry… (and it’s all in the spoilers).

The overwhelming tragedy to this day is that families were more upset about their kids coming out and admitting they were gay than the fact they were ill with AIDS (although that came a close second).

And third, the “cancelling” of those men’s mates, and boyfriends, to the extent of barring them from contact, and attending the funerals.

That is deeply offensive. Added to which, the homophobic backlash from parts of society. There should be a National Memorial Day to remember victims of AIDS.

1st December every year is AIDS memorial day

Of course it is. Perhaps I meant to say, one which is marked as nationally significant.

Most people who mark that day are LGBT or allies, not so much the wider population.
