Physical on Apple TV is fantastic, original, exciting, eye-catching witty and dark. We have never seen anything like this show, and it is truly a unique show that keeps you wondering what will happen next. In addition, we love the way physical takes on the taboo topic of anorexia and body dysmorphia.
The depiction of the mental health battle the main character faces is so close to the truth you feel what the character is going through. Everything about this show has you wanting more. The visuals, costumes, music UGH WE LOVE IT! The acting in this show is spot on, and We hope to see some awards for this show in the future!! Highly recommended!
This show feels like ‘the little show that could. And we mean that in a good way. It has all the right ingredients in all the right places. It’s nostalgic, quirky, dark, funny, charming and disarming. It is honest and truthfully reflects the inner dialogue that goes on inside the head of someone who battles with their relationship to their body and food and their inner power.
Rose Byrne is perfectly cast in the role of a beautiful and beautifully self tortured middle-aged wife/mother who is trying so hard to keep herself and her family together while battling personal demons. Casting an “attractive” woman, who on the outside looks like she has no cause for insecurities, makes her self-loathing inner monologue hit home even more because, well, “pretty people aren’t supposed to feel bad about themselves”.
Sheila strives to empower herself and begins to look at her life differently; she starts to make the changes necessary to grow into herself, even if that self has a manipulative dark side. The character development is warmly surprising and contrary to some professional reviewers.
It nailed the truth about this subject. Even the tiny details of someone from the outside noticing the small patch of worn down skin on her knuckle, teeth marks from throwing up. It is brave and unique, has a cracking soundtrack and, quite frankly, is an absolute triumph!!!. We feel like Physical nails the details of dealing with a damaging psychological disorder and gives those who have suffered an outlet. Physical reminds us a bit of Breaking Bad; it shows the shadowy side of suburbia and how dark harmless-seeming characters can go when ambition takes over.
