BBC Three’s Conversations With Friends is blowing viewers away.
The series is another adaptation of a novel by Sally Rooney which stars Alison Oliver, Jemima Kirke and Taylor Swift’s boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
And it’s proving as popular as Normal People. Twitter is bursting with love for it.
Conversations With Friends is ‘just as good’ as Normal people
Following Sally Rooney’s huge success with the adaptation of Normal People, fans were sceptical as to whether Conversations With Friends could follow in its footsteps.
However, after the BBC Three adaptation first aired on Sunday, many fans have jumped to Twitter to say that it’s just as big a hit!
Idc what anyone says, Sally Rooney is a brilliant writer and her on screen adaptations are phenomenal. Conversations with Friends was just as good as Normal People and nothing can change my mind. #ConversationswithFriends pic.twitter.com/9nA6ENqq5a

The Sally cinematic rooneyverse is so comforting. Even when heavy topics are shown. Not very plot-heavy, just good cinematography and realistic characters facing their lives that is depicted with a casual intimacy that is very ‘slice-of-life’. #ConversationswithFriends pic.twitter.com/5eYRL8Cu2C

Fans think that the series is just like the book
Fans say the Sally Rooney adaptation is just how they pictured it when reading the book.
It’s crazy how in both Sally Rooney series adaptations, *everything* is exactly how i pictured it while reading the books.

Viewers are also praising Joe Alwyn’s performance as they claim his portrayal of Nick is just like the books.
Nick is supposed to be awkward and stiff and uncomfortable. Joe has actually done an incredible job portraying such a difficult character to perfect #ConversationswithFriends.

Joe is playing Nick how he was written in the book – Nick was written as awkward, stiff and without a personality and Joe is doing well at portraying that on screen. No point comparing him to Paul Mescal – different characters! #ConversationswithFriends

Fans are blown away by the ‘honest and raw’ chemistry
While many critics claim the new adaptation of Conversations With Friends is ‘awkward’, viewers on Twitter believe that the chemistry between Alison Oliver and Joe Alwyn is ‘honest and raw’.
Everyone saying #ConversationswithFriends is too slow or lacking in dialogue or action… it’s a love story between 2 awkward people, what do you expect? Also, who has profound and groundbreaking conversations every minute of their lives? Sometimes there is silence. That’s real.

People saying there’s no chemistry in #ConversationswithFriends – there’s HEAPS. It’s just that we’re used to seeing two confident people hit it off in shows – it’s refreshing to see two awkward people bond instead.

What a terrific cast. The portrayal of introverted awkwardness by Joe Alywn and Alison Oliver. The portrayal of extroverted confidence by Jemima Kirke and Sasha Lane is so real and uncomfortable and engaging. #ConversationswithFriends

The first two episodes of #ConversationswithFriends were very, very good and promising. But @josalw and Alison Oliver’s awkward, minimum-eye-contact flirting was honestly one of the most powerful things I’ve seen on screen for a while. Brilliant performances.

The complicated emotions in #ConversationswithFriends in every shot… you can not look away
