PLEASE LIKE ME

JTI think we need to talk about how much I love the ABC series Please Like Me, by Josh Thomas. I've been watching it on iView this last week and can't get enough. I somehow missed the first series and will certainly be going back, but for now, I am mildly obsessed. My affection for Josh himself goes way back - he is intelligent and sharp and sweet and I just love the way his mind works. I sound old saying it, but his humour is just so fresh and unpretentious (groan - I sound not only old but wanky). But what I mean is watching it makes me laugh out loud and cry and smile and shout YES quite a bit. It's like GIRLS, but Australian, and with young gay men and mental illness and a really sweet and weird dude. It's so good to see all these things on a show and dealt with in a totally normal and awesome way.
