what peeps are saying:

“Holy shit that was intense.”

“I did actually laugh, cry, and need a drink. Bring a flask.”

“This is not a romantic comedy. It is an important conversation starter.”

“I was most impressed by the ability to explore a complex issue in such a simple, truthful manner – no judgment or preaching.”

“We were discussing consent for hours after.”

“I… need to take a shower and apologize to the women in my life.”

“So many women have been Kat, and so many women aspire to be Lisa. I wish I had a Lisa in my life sooner. I wish I had the courage to be a Lisa…”

“The fact that Trent is so relatable is what scares me the most… which is why this story is so important.”

“No guy wants to be Trent, but most of us will see parts of ourselves in him. I want to hate him, but I can’t.”

“This show made me less stupid. Thank you.”
