Couldn't find a thread on this one. After some glowing recommendations, I gave this a go.
On whole it's one of the best shows I've seen a while, primarily because of how Michaela Coel is able to take a topic as heavy as sexual trauma and seamlessly integrate it into a broader, semi-comedic portrait of a 30-something woman trying to make it work as a writer. The show moves at a clip pace, and sometimes goes off in unexpected directions. Characters make poor decisions and don't always come across as completely likeable, but Coel's most winning strength as a writer is keeping us invested in their respective journeys regardless. If there's any fault to mention, it's probaly that she also bites off a bit more than she can chew in terms of giving every character some sort of hurdle intended to represent a larger societal/cultural issue. That being said, this is still a very strong sophomore effort from Coel and surely exceeds what she accomplished in "Chewing Gum" (which I also liked a fair bit).
