Interesting show. Ben Platt and Zoey Deutch are so good! But everyone is LGBTQ+? Exaggerated ratio here, and this turns the show a little one-dimensional.

This is sooooo goood!!! It touches on mental health issues, gun control, parenting etc. It's moving and catchy and funny! I absolutely loved every minute of it!

Very fun watch. Over the top drama that works as long as you're willing to suspend your disbelief. They try to shoehorn in Ben Platt's musical talent in a few places in ways that don't seem natural, but that's really my only complaint. Hope it continues on to season 2, because the finale promises another great arc.

This show is so real while presenting itself as unreal as it gets. I like it

The comedy is good but I'd say it really excels by making me care for some awful people to the point having them succeeding wouldn't be that bad, which is odd. If you can suspend your disbelief about how unrealistic some characters and their arcs are, it should be a fun experience.

well that was interesting ... I guess.. ... the script was a bit all over the place and a lot of characters were poorly developed and things happened very quickly.. Payton and [spoiler]River have very good chemistry while it was hard to see any with Payton and Alice[/spoiler]. Also a lot of the actors didn't have the range to pull of their quirky characters compared to previous actors that have featured in Ryan Murphy TV Shows were the character is very OTT put pulls it off well. Like Payton's 'enemy' whose name I can't remember looks very similar to Emma Roberts but didn't have the same screen presence or depth.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
