  • Apr 20, 2022
    Amazing show, it shows an important part of history
  • Apr 08, 2022
    The series brought home the personal tragedy behind the statistics. I lived through the 80s as a young gay man and saw countless guys disappear from AIDS. I seroconverted in 1991 and expected to die but survived because of the advent of treatment in 1996. I am still amazed that I have survived, but know that it was by sheer chance. It may be difficult for the younger generation to understand the level of homophobia that existed back then and which was brought out into the open by AIDS. My own mother told me, when I told her that a friend of mine (whom she'd never met) had AIDS, her response was: ‘Well, he's got what he deserved.' ‘It's a Sin' doesn't attempt to take on the multiplicity of reasons why AIDS flourished, but the territory it does take on it presents in a masterly way.

    I've never cried this much over a mini-siries.

    Fantastic. So evocative of my 20s. Amazing acting all round. Cried so much. It happened and it's terrible how people treat each other. Ignorance is the biggest problem. Lots of lessons to be learnt I think.

    very touching.happy times then tears..brilliant series.
  • Nov 30, 2021
    This is the best miniseries I have seen in a long time, it is damn near perfect. Not giving to much away its a heartbreaking, unfiltered, and focused story about a group of gay men living and working during the AIDS Crisis of the 1980's. The setting is well crafted, and the characters and storyline is brilliant. But, this show is a HARD watch, not in the sense that its a slog to get through. But, it is so sad and painful because of how much you care for these characters. If you have trouble sitting through difficult and harrowing stories, maybe skip this Drama.

    Great story, emotional rollercoaster. Could've been a bit longer to develop more of the themes in the middle. Episode 3 was the best in my opinion.
  • Nov 03, 2021
    Outstanding recreation of the 1980s AIDS era with many excellent performances. Amusing as well as sad and informative. Some actors play successfully against type, others are new, adding to the interest. A very careful piece of work which is worthy whilst vibrant and amusing too, a difficult trick but it works.
  • Oct 11, 2021
    A very emotional programme which shows what is largely unknown for those of us born in the 80s.
  • Sep 29, 2021
    I'm conflicted on giving it 4 or 4.5. Sooo, 4+? Well, in short, this series felt a bit too fast for me. The huge timespan felt a bit unbalanced by the end of the series, I think one (or two) extra episodes could have made the show better by giving it more room to explore half of the characters. Because of the limited number of episodes, there was a lot of "tell not show" stuff to fill in the gaps. But, for what this series offers, it is absolutely amazing from start to finish. - By a straight cisgender male, lol
