What do I need to know about Conversations With Friends?

As you might have guessed, the success of Normal People has filled us with anticipation for more of Sally Rooney’s work to be adapted to the small-screen. We first learnt that the Irish writer’s debut novel Conversations With Friends was to be turned into a 12-part series for the BBC in February, and the our desperation for more information regarding the project has only increased since then. Although it does seem odd that Normal People was released to television before Conversations With Friends, one should that this is a completely new story with a different tone and cast of characters.

Without revealing too many details of the plot, Conversations With Friends tells the story of the complicated relationships between four people. The novel’s narrator is Frances, a 21 year old college student and aspiring writer who has a long standing friendship and on-and-off romance with her school friend Bobbi. Their lives are complicated after they meet an older couple (Melissa and Nick) and a love quadrangle forms.

Now, we don’t want to make you too excited for the adaption of Conversations With Friends, but it’s hard not to considering the information that we do know. Naturally, one might be worried that this adaption of Sally Rooney’s debut novel might not live up to the standards set by Normal People. However, we are here to tell you to fear not since Hulu’s all star lineup is together again to bring us the adaption of Conversations With Friends. The Ocar-nominated Lenny Abrahamson is back behind the camera while Alice Birch, who was responsible for writing much of Normal People, is returning to write several of the episodes. Safe to say that Conversations With Friends is in good hands.

One aspect of the production that remains a mystery is regarding the cast. There has been no word on the casting at this point in time, however there have been plenty of speculation of who will take the roles of the main characters in the media and online forums.

Using VPNs is little cumbersome

One of the most popular ways to watch TV shows is using a VPN which will mask your location and make it appear as though you are in the UK. Once connected you can access the BBC iPlayer.

VPNs have their pros and cons. On the positive side is privacy, anonymity and security. The negatives include a sometimes slower internet connection, the need to usually download software and the overall reliability of some providers.

There are some free proxy servers (which act in a similar way to VPNs) but bandwidth is sometimes limited - that's no good if you want to binge watch Conversations With Friends.
