There’s a lot in Severance that’s worth talking about, from the way it looks unflinchingly at capitalism and the malevolence of corporation to the mastery of the first season’s slow-burning pace, which leads to a truly breathless finale.

At the center of it all is the way it approaches queerness. The queer relationship that runs through season one of Severance favors a kind of storytelling that, even as queer representation becomes more prominent (and at times, more homogenous), feels like a rarity.

At once navigating and sidestepping expectations when it comes to romance, coming out, and happy endings; Severance looks at queerness unlike anything else on TV right now.
