What if you could get Euphoria but with a British style. Well, the next two shows on this list are just that. And we start with Everything Now.
The series follows 16-year-old Mia, who returns to school after being in hospital for an eating disorder. She has to enter high school with everyone knowing what happened, but she just wants to take back her life and push forward with her “F--- It Bucket List.”
That bucket list is full of drugs, partying, and everything that you would find in Euphoria. She is going to do absolutely everything before her teenage years are over, and she doesn’t care who she hurts doing it all.
Watch Everything Now on Netflix.
Yes, there is a U.S. version of the story. That’s not the one to watch when you’re scratching the Euphoria itch. You want the UK version—you know, the original one. This 2007 drama pushed the boundaries long before Euphoria was even a thought.
It tackles some important topics like mental illness, eating disorders, drug use, sexuality, and so much more. Each episode focuses on one character, although some other characters will get development in those tales. It’s a chance to learn more about who people are—how we see them but who they actually are on the inside.
The characters definitely make some questionable decisions. We want to see them succeed, but we also want to see just how dark the writers are willing to go.
Skins is available to stream on Hulu.
