The Young Pope, Episode One

“God, my conscience does not accuse me, because you do not believe I am capable of repenting. And therefore, I do not believe in you. I don’t believe you are capable of saving me from myself.”

“Holy father, what are you saying?”

“I’m saying that I don’t believe in God, Tommaso.”


I don’t think my parents ever loved each other. They must’ve married for some reason. My mom was young. My dad was older, but he had a cushy job, money, came from a good family. So they bought a nice house at the end of the cul-de-sac… and started their nuclear family. Screw that.

Yousef Acar is the purest and most kind-hearted man that I’ve ever seen in SKAM. Sure, he’s got his faults and flaws but the thing that I love most about him is the fact that even when he’s stopped being a Muslim, he is still choosing to be a good person. He loves his friends, he has a job and he is respectful towards other people. When Sana opened up to him about her strong faith, he LISTENED. He understood where she’s coming from and he didn’t even tell her that what she believed in is wrong. I understand where he’s coming from because I also have questions regarding my religion but he’s literally still encouraging and reminding Sana about her Faith and Religion. He is not trying to change her thoughts/opinions; he is encouraging her to keep it. That’s what their relationship is supposed to be like: a relationship with differences and how they’re still balancing their own lives despite being together. Sana will probs doubt her faith but Yousef will always be there to remind her of its importance. Like, I cannot stress just how beautiful that man is. He is incredibly understanding towards her and I will RIOT if he will not be in the last clip without any reasonable REASONS. Ya hear me, Julie? I just want to see Yousef Acar one last time, before I’ll say goodbye to SKAM. It’s finally ending and I am having a hard time letting go of all the characters that I have grown to love so much.

Orphan Black is over and a show that has been so important to me for so long is done. It was a show where I saw myself reflected and a show that praised strong women and the outsider for having the ability to become a hero. I’m so grateful for this show and I’m so sad to see it go. What a trip it’s been, but I wouldn’t have it conclude any other way.
