This show was a mix of cliché and originality. On one hand you have interesting plots for episodes, crazy situations, and twists and turns, and I’m the other you have predictable plots and writing. The acting was great, they made a smart move by getting actors that have worked on projects previously, and Wyatt Olef is perfect for his role. I enjoyed Sofia’s performance as well, she really sold me on her character and her ability to change from being an angry or rude character to a charming and like able one is extremely impressive.

I also loved Sofia Bryant, she was great for her role. All the acting was amazing so props to the casting director. One of my main complaints is the inconsistency with the episodes, some of the, were great, some were okay, and some I didn’t like very much. This wouldn’t be a problem if there were more episodes, but considering there are only 7 it was not convenient. The series doesn’t drag along and the music is amazing. It perfectly fits the mood! I do feel like the last episode was the best one, and it made me feel like the story had just begun. That’s another big problem. I felt like the first 6 episodes were all leading up to the real show.

One good thing to come from this is that it made me want more from the show. The potential really shines through I’m the last episode and we get to see what the writers and directors can really do and I would have liked to see that more extreme tone through the season. I was suspecting something was going to happen but the scene really did leave me in shock. It was amazing! I want more of that in the show. My only advice for the writing team is do your research! Look at what other Netflix shows are doing and do not do that. I Am Not Okay with This download.
That is the only way you’re getting noticed. Break the cliché’s! You’ve already started with having the protagonist having a crush on a girl. We rarely see a (possible) LGBTQ+ lead so props to you guys! Make something different and don’t be afraid to take risks. Overall I like the show and feel like if people give a second season a chance we may really see the ball get rolling.
