I didn't want to include content warnings in the main posts for this show, but each episode that's aired so far should have CW: sexual assault.

I watched this first episode at broadcast. I knew from reviews or promos about the content warning subject matter, but, yikes I found this episode so unsettling that I didn't want to watch the rest of the season. And I mean, obviously it's meant to be unsettling, but the banality? realness? of it all made it worse. Like, that everyone wants something from Arabella - not just whoever drugged and assaulted her, but even the interactions with her fans who recognize her but don't really _see_ her. Watching her move through the world was like watching the character in a horror movie that doesn't yet know about the lurking monster.

We're about to get the last two episodes in the UK and all I will say is that this is one of the most remarkable pieces of television I've ever seen. Disturbing, uncomfortable, thought-provoking, and brilliant.
