CHOICE PICK: I MAY DESTROY YOU – HBO 9PM
I May Destroy You is the couch’s new addiction / obsessed series (right up there with RuPaul and Legendary). After two episodes I’m hooked in and enthralled in finding out what the heck is going on and loving our lead character, Annabelle (played to perfection by Michaela Coel), and what happened to her when she was drugged after a night out. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Annabelle, our heroine, is a twitter blogger turned author whose first book becomes a big success. While trying to knock out a draft of her second book, she ditches work and goes out on the town with friends, Simon and Simon’s partner Kat and Simon’s cousin Derae – and that’s where things start to get murky for Annabelle. Add into that a shady boyfriend from Italy, her best friends and the fact Simon is cheating on Kat lead her to a drugged cocktail and missing hours. But it’s Michaela (who also wrote, directed and created the series) who is the most captivating and you are glued to her the instant she appears on the screen. Y’all really need to check this show out!
