    "I am a shell of my former self."

    Netflix's series From Scratch is making quite a splash on Twitter.

    The series is based on the memoir From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily and Finding Home by Tembi Locke, who wrote about meeting and falling in love with Italian chef, Rosario Gullo.

    Judging from a lot of the tweets, people had no idea what they were in for.

    Netflix did try to warn people — though it was too late for a lot of them.

    Only watch From Scratch if you’re ready to cryyyyy…like eyes red, boogers everywhere kinda cry.

    I casually started #FromScratch while doing laundry and eight hours later, I am a shell of my former self. Wiping tears with dish cloths. I wasn’t ready. One of my favorites this year. 🤍

    That’s how a friend of mine called me today sobbing, and I was legit worried, close to freaking out only for her to tell me she was watching the show “From the scratch”. @netflix do something please.

    #FromScratch on @netflix has broken me. I have not cried this hard since Beaches.

    What started out as a corny romance turned into the most heart wrenching thing since The Fault In Our Stars. I have cried so hard. Please avoid #FromScratch on Netflix if you hate tears. Ha

    I just sobbed for hours while watching #fromscratch the other day. Like full on blubbering. So, if you’re not into that then I don’t suggest watching. It could thaw the coldest of hearts, I’m not joking. Should come with a warning.

    I'm not the one sobbing watching #fromscratch on the plane, you are.
