Normal People – 7.6

They say the course of true love never runs smooth, and this sure was a rough ride for Marianne and Connell, so obviously meant for each other but forever finding ways to confuse the issue. The series’ length rather taxed the viewer: C’mon, why are you messing around with that other person, we kept saying. But doe-eyed Daisy Edgar-Jones looked so stunningly beautiful I kept wanting to watch, even as I got impatient with Connell, who couldn’t make up his mind or put together a complete sentence. Her personality, too, was more interesting; and she did a better job aging from high schooler to college graduate than Paul Mescal, who looked closer to 24 all along.
