If you haven’t lived under a rock lately, you know that Colleen Hoover’s smash-hit novel Confess has been made into a TV show with the mobile app Go90. And my gosh, the first two episodes were totally glorious!
The actors playing Auburn and Owen are amazing and frankly so are all the other important characters! I loved the first episode for the art show and the confessions. And, of course, the first meeting between Auburn and Owen. The first art show was so well done, and I loved both the paintings and the confessions.
In the first episode, we first saw what happened between Auburn and her boyfriend who was in the hospital. I kind of didn’t feel like she was ten years younger back then, so while that scene was definitely important, especially for the part of the audience who hadn’t read the books, it was very short. If I remember, correctly, though, as readers, we didn’t get that connection until much later.
We also learned that Owen’s dad was not the nicest person in the world, as he was totally pushing Owen around.
In the second episode, we learned that Auburn had a son, and that he didn’t live with her. Basically, she had no say in her son’s upbringing, because he was living with his grandma. And while Owen’s dad kind of grated on my nerves, I have to say the grandma got all my antennas going in the wrong direction. So that was extremely good acting.
I truly enjoyed all the feelings that shone through in these first two episodes, as they really reminded me of all the feels I had reading the book! And Colleen Hoover had a cameo appearance!!
The rest of the episodes will air on April 4th, so make sure you have some spare time. It is so worth it! So far, this show gets five solid stars from me. You can watch the trailer here, and start forming your own opinion 😉
