    ik this might seem like too surface level of an observation but im p sure that women's sexuality and the influence and hold that sex has on everyone walking, living, and breathing on this earth was a p huge theme in Fleabag,, how when everything in her life seems to be crumbling or she thinks she's a living pile of shit (she has a whole monologue that's p fantastic,talking abt this) her body and the validation of sex; 'knowing that someone wants your body', can feel like all she has left. Sex is an escape, it's a tool, it's a doom's-day device, it's love, it's not giving a shit, it's giving too many shits but i think a lot of the nuances that young adults (20somethings-30s), young women -too- edit: *_especially_* , experience within the world of sex are explored and fleshed out in a really attention-grabbing way.. idk just my two cents..

    I highly recommend She-Ra and the princesses of power for women empowerment ! I started this show like 5 days ago and I almost finished and honestly I love it even though it might be destined to younger people. But honestly I love the drawings, the plot is kind of predictable and common but still refreshing and all the characters are touching (+ there are like 3 important male characters and all of the other important characters are female and this is sooo good). There are some representation going on as well so yeah you should totally give a chance to this show

    movie recommendation for those who like the maniac and black mirror: the platform. it's a spanish film about a reality/future where there's a prison with different platforms and you get to eat what ever the people before you didn't eat. it's quite dark and really makes you think so maybe don't watch it at night :D

    Hi Ashley, Since you liked big little lies, I'd recommend another show that sort of has similar themes, called Dead To Me on Netflix. It's about this frustrated, short tempered widow whose husband is killed in a hit and run. She meets this other woman in a grief group and they really hit it off. And the reason I find it cool is it has that sense of "oh shit everything is going to fall apart now" kind of tension, but parallel to that action you have an exploration of female friendships, loss of a loved one, how people react under pressure, especially 40 something women and that whole side of this. I'd love to know if you find this interesting. Your videos are a fun watch, and they've made me appreciate dressing up and thinking about clothes aesthetically a whole lot more, simply because you derive such genuine enjoyment from it and it comes through. :)

    I would recommend Adventure Time. I know it's a kid's show but that show is my favorite. The beginning is kinda childish but it grows as the main character grows. The plot is really well developed and they have thought of everything. The story tell abt a kid named Finn who is the only human alive in post-apocalyptic world where its been divided into 4 sections; candy, slime, ice and fire. It also tells abt other people in the show and how so called evil or chaos incarnate wants to destroy it. please watch it : ' )

    Based off of the shows and movies you’ve listed, I know you would love Normal People (Hulu), it’s raw, honest, and just beautifully composed. It also has a truly dynamic female lead, as well as a sensitive, dynamic male lead. It’s a must watch! And based off of Big Little Lies, I think you’d really like Sharp Objects. It’s a limited hbo series based off of a book written by Gillian Flynn, who also wrote Gone Girl. And for comedy specials, there is a really good three parter on Netflix called Middleditch and Schwartz, it’s some of the best improv I’ve seen.

    Since I have seen almost all the shows you recommended, I’m going to throw a list of shows I think you’ll enjoy. - Working’ moms (even tho I don’t want to have kids, I think we should all watch this show) - After life (British dark humour. A man lost his wife and is depressed. It’s really funny and sad at the same time. Don’t watch it if you’re in a really low day) - Please like me (a guy realise is gay. It’s funny but also talks about depression in a really good way) - Atypical (a teen on the autism spectrum wants to have a girlfriend. It’s fun, accurate and also opens a lot of conversations about queerness, autism, parenting) Also, my depression is also heating hard these days. I think we are all struggling more than usual so you’re not by yourself. Don’t hesitate to get some help if you think you need it. Oh, and btw, I’ve been self-isolated since 13th March. Kill me now :DDDD

Sci-fi drama that discusses topics from culture, to LGBTQI issues, feminism, love, and so much more!! So good!! Plus, GIRLS (very raw and relatable) and The Handmaid's Tale! Can't wait to watch some of your recos, too! Been wanting to watch Bojack and Big Little Lies for so long. Fleabag looks interesting! :)

    I love these deep dives. Keep 'em coming. TV shows worth another look (and my perennial favourite) - West Wing. Aaron Sorkin writing at his best IMHO. Also, Killing Eve (season one specifically, as it was written by Phoebe WB). Thirdly, another TV show that I really dug like nearly 20 years ago was "Dead Like Me", about this teen who gets killed by a piece of de-orbiting space station and becomes a Grim Reaper. Super dark, and very very funny. Also (also), 40-somethings vs 20-somethings: we still have the same insecurities and petty rivalries, we've just gotten much, much better at hiding them :) Oh, shit, almost forgot "The Handmaid's Tale" damn, that is bleak.....
