Elite Season 1 Episode 8.
The ending of a show’s season, especially one as wild as Euphoria, can be a heart-wrenching process for us TV lovers. The good part is that there are plenty of other notable television shows and movies to fill the void of in our Sunday nights. We’ve rounded up a list of some unforgettable TV shows and movies that bring in all the drama, chaos, partying and emotional rollercoasers glittered across Euphoria.
We love the way Euphoria highlights what it's really like growing up— figuring out your sexuality, trying new things and getting involved in shenanigans you know you shouldn’t. Kids, a 1995 classic dramatic indie film, does just the same. The way the movie focuses on the raw experiences of young kids trying to figure themselves out brings outpaces even the controversy of Euphoria.
Jonah Hill’s movie about a lost 13-year-old boy who finds the meaning of family within a group of skater boys is unlike any other made. The way family trauma can affect us in so many ways, but create friendships that are forever just as it does with the characters in Euphoria is an honest concept that an audience loves to see unfold.
Nothing signaled a good girl gone bad in the early aughts like a belly and tongue piercing. It's among the more mild trouble 13-year-old honor student Tracy Freeland (Evan Rachel Wood) gets into when she befriends queen bee Evie (Nikki Reed). Based upon Reed's own experiences, Thirteen lives up to its logline promise that life happens fast. One second you're wearing "Cabbage Patch" clothes and the nex you're regularly hitting that five-finger discount. Be sure to also check out an appearance from a baby Vanessa Hudgens.
Skins follows its young characters as they experiment with sex, drugs and everything in between as Euphoria does. However, as it often goes, the British do it even better and deliver three generations of TV that'll keep you glued to the screen. Effy Stonem forever!
This television show has all the different teenage cliques in one place, which as we know, is a recipe for disaster. This show covers some deep topics like cyberbullying, drug use, teen pregnancy, mental illness and much more, but in a way that is sincere and thoughtful. A true blueprint for teen television.
Before we had Maddy Perez, we had our queen bee Blair Waldorph. Think Euphoria, but rich, snobbish prep school kids on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, with those on the outside eager to nudge their way in. These kids are even more mischievous, even more ruthless and a lot more clever.
Feeling like you don’t belong is the worst nightmare for a teenager. When three low-class students start attending a private school in Spain, they’re not sure if they’ll make it out alive — and one of them doesn't.
