"I May Destroy You" (2020 release; 12 episodes of about 30 min. each) brings the story of Arabella. As Episode 1 opens, it is "Ostia, Italy" and Arabella is saying goodbye to her Italian boyfriend and getting ready to return to London. We are then in "Hackney, London" and Arabella, an up-and-coming writer, is struggling with her new writing project, despite the coaching of her agents. Arabella decides to give herself a break and goes out for drinks with some friends. Next morning she wakes up with a flashback that something went very wrong... Couple of comments: "I May Destroy You" is a labor of love from British (and award winning) actress Michaela Coel ("Chewing Gum"). She writes, produces, co-directs and of course stars in this left-of-center (and very British) TV mini-series about the aftermath of sexual assault (which Coel has admitted in interviews as being based on her own real life experience of same). I have now seen the first 2 episodes of this, and let me be very clear: this is not your typical sexual assault survival drama, not by a mile or two (or ten). The first episode really just sets the stage and the series doesn't find its real footing until Episode 2, where the Arabella character now fully realizes that indeed someone had spiked her drink the night before and that she was assaulted at some point. Now comes the question: who is responsible for this, and how will Arabella deal with the fallout? Apart from the British setting, I must admit that I had at times trouble following the dialogue due to the very British accents of the characters. "I May Destroy You" is now airing on HBO (and available on HBO On Demand), with new episodes airing late Sunday evenings. If you are in the mood for something quite different from your regular TV fare (even for HBO standards), I'd readily suggest you check this out and draw your own conclusion.
