Another added: "How has this show managed to perfectly capture: British schools, the British teenage experience, queer friendship groups, the specific brand of homophobia in British schools, young love, the very feeling of being young, British, queer, and in love both romantically and platonically? It looks absolutely stunning. So faithful to the books and also so fresh and bold. I cannot wait."
