Thoughts I Have Watching Eyewitness

If you've been following me on Twitter then you may have seen me going on a little ramble about the crime thriller Eyewitness and two adorable guys Philip and Lukas. I happened to binge watch it one day and just fell in love with the love story between Philip and Lukas. And the chemistry between the lead actors Tyler Young and James Paxton.  It's something different on TV, something people need to see, a same sex couple at the front and centre of a show, two LGBT characters portrayed in a realistic light. Tyler Young and James Paxton who play Philip and Lukas respectively put together a beautiful playlist of their on screen pairing Philkas called Does Your Stomach Hurt? - which i've been listening to quite alot

I recently did a Why You Should Watch Eyewitness & a Times Where Eyewitness' Philkas Gave Me All The Feels post which you should definitely check out. It’s dark, mysterious, intriguing and suspenseful. It’s full of love, intimacy, family, trust, and even humour. It’s everything you ever wanted in a TV show, all in one. When i gave the first episode a watch, i was hooked on the storytelling and the characters whom i immediately felt an attachment to

So i thought i would put together my list of random thoughts i have when watching the insanely addictive series. These are in no set order of episodes. It may be a little spoilery, i had to get my thoughts out somehow.

1. i love how Helen's listening to this education tape, it definitely adds some intrigue
2. Awe the brunette one is so cute. Okay, they are both so cute
3. I wonder how they met?
4. I'm loving the chemistry already.
5. I'm calling it now, Philip's only hanging out with Lukas because he likes him (not motor cross)
6. I love these two together already. Their smiles give me life

284. Eyewitness deserves to be appreciated. Philkas deserve to be appreciated.
285. Excuse me, while i go and watch it again. And cry over Tyler and James' beauty

Okay, that was my very long list of thoughts when i watch Eyewitness. If you haven't already just go and watch it. I love the cast so much and they deserve a season 2. I want a season 2, because they write as many stories for Helen & Gabe and Philip & Lukas. I have so many little ideas on what I'd like to see for them. It's worth a season 2, and more people should be watching Eyewitness.

Thank you for reading my post, it was so much fun to write - i hope you liked the little gif spam as well
and thank you James and Tyler for being absolute sweethearts ♡
