The Looking For Alaska series dropped worldwide this weekend, and it’s sent the internet into meltdown.
The series, based on John Green‘s book of the same name, has brought out the nostalgic feels as everyone remembers reading the book and, well, crying into their pillows with maximum teen angst.

The reviews are also coming in hot, and they’re DAMN good. As someone who is currently watching the first episode as I write this (and will continue half-watching all day as I work, bc I am that level of multi-tasker) I can absolutely agree with two things – the show is going hard for the fans and their nostalgia, and the soundtrack is KILLER.
Everything about this adaptation is perfection. The music, the actors, the emotions are everything I hoped it would be from my favorite book of all time. @johngreen thank you so much for bringing this beautiful story to life #LookingForAlaska

Stop everything and watch #LookingForAlaska on Hulu. It’s a masterful adaptation. I don’t know how Josh Schwartz does it, but he understands the complexities of teenagers better than anyone, in any setting and any era. Every damn thing about it is stunning.

Anticipating a piece of writing you love as a teen to be translated in a visual medium for years and suddenly it's here makes you so damn emotional and nostalgic. 2 minutes into #LookingForAlaska episode 1 and I teared up. ????☔

Okay so I already love #LookingForAlaska because unlike the book, it’s equally both Pudge’s AND Alaska’s story. It’s not just from pudge’s perspective here. They’re really trying to flesh everybody out and it’s really good so far. 1/?

The soundtrack on Hulu's Looking for Alaska TV adaptation is one of the best I've ever heard.

the #LookingForAlaska series is surreal because i’ve imagined this since the first time i fell in love with this book. there’s something about hearing these lines i memorized in 6th grade and idolized for so long. i unpacked 3 boxes to find my old copy so i can reread this book

Keen? Looking For Alaska is streaming on Stan in Australia right bloody now. Perfect Sunday hangover viewing, IMO.
