TV, Beauty, and Yummies
1. Euphoria Season Two: this week, we finished season two of this dark HBO series. The show is all over the place sometimes, but that tracks with its teen characters’ often volatile emotions. The acting is superb, but I was bummed to see Kat (Barbie Ferreira) relegated to a much smaller role after her season one development. On the flip side, it was nice to see Lexi (Maude Apatow) in an expanded role. The music that rolled when the closing credits began at the end of episode seven stunned me. I recognized the tune but couldn’t quite place it; when I learned it was the Cannibal Holocaust theme song, it blew my mind a little. I can’t stop thinking about it. Now I’m kinda giggling-slash-cringing at how folks will react when they try to watch that movie because of the song’s appearance in Euphoria…the film is a doozy.
