#somewhere in the ether there’s words for how good this show is#how brave and wise and horrifying and beautiful and important#this incredible complex fable about difference and minorities and illness and intolerance and survival#it’ll break your fucking heart#and it’ll keep doing it#because the characters are so intimately & tenderly drawn#every single one#[especially the female characters]#and the whole thing just says#look#look at how terrible and fearful and petty and cruel and stupid humans are#and look at how brilliant and courageous and tragic and loving#god i don’t even know how to praise it high enough it’s fucking astonishing#i just mainlined the most recent eps off iplayer & i’m a goddamn wreck#i’m just#god#it’s so good#every second of it aches and it’s so bloody good(x)
