TBH I absolutely loved this series.
With having seen the last episode yesterday, I can officially say that I give it 5/5 stars.
The first thing I can say is that Zoey is my spirit animal. Yara Shahidi alone is one of my new idols of 2018, with her consistently similar opinions to my own, that she shares on twitter and the broad spectrum of looks she can pull off on and off the show. That added on to the fact that she’s smart enough to get into Harvard, while also debuting her lead role in this show, leaving me with nothing but respect for this up and coming star (I’m calling it now.)
Going on to my next favorite character… Nomi. I mean I know they have script writers for the show, but this girl is a comedic genius. She’s not afraid about expressing her sexuality, and she’s real as hell while staying relatively nice. She’s definitely takes the role as the wise/ experienced friend.
Luka is the guy best friend we all need, and for some reason someone I can’t stop comparing to Jaden Smith, or maybe Willow as mentioned in episode 3. I actually used one of his quotes the other day talking with my friends. My friend was having troubles with his girl and said they decided to take a little break to think things through instead of actually talking things out. I told him that, “you gotta get uncomfortable to get comfortable”. Which was totally good advice if you ask me. Thanks Luka, or the one who wrote that line for Luka.
Aaron is a very politically active character. He’s also the cutest character in my opinion. But he did start off the show by making Zoey the cup-bitch and his U-up bitch, while also being a little too hardcore when Ana wanted to stand up for her beliefs sooo mixed feelings.
The twins are very interesting characters. They’re blatantly honest, and fly as hell which makes them cool, but take that with a grain of salt because they can sometimes be kind of rude with their honesty. Yet they totally had Zoey’s best interest at heart when they wanted her to get with Cash, securing a future as a member of the WAGS, leading them to a little redemption in my eyes.
I don’t really know how to feel about Ana. She seems fairly cool, but she is a conservative Catholic, two things I can’t really relate to. Not that I have a problem with them. She can also be a sort of sloppy drunk sometimes. In real life though, she’s actually Selena Gomez’s best friend who donated a kidney to her, which is a pretty amazing thing to do.
Vivek isn’t amazing, but he’s definitely not horrible. Maybe I’m just holding on to the fact that he continued selling drugs even after he got his ass whooped, or the fact that he called his dad a bum when he clearly wasn’t, but that has nothing to do with the actual actor which I’ll assume is a great guy, because I keep seeing pics with him and the rest of the co-stars on my Instagram feed.
All in all, it’s a good show, filled with amazing actors. The show manages to talk about important real life issues young adults go through now-a-days, ranging from guys to politics which is kind of refreshing compared to all of the unrealistic stereotypes we all see on tv. So go watch it right now on Freeform or Hulu. 🙂
