TV Series Review (Neflix)
I am not Okay with This (S1)
7 Episodes x 30 mins approx
Stars Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Sofia Bryant
American coming-of-age comedy-drama web television series, based on the graphic novel of the same name by Charles Forsman
Sydney is a teenage girl navigating the trials and tribulations of high school while dealing with the complexities of her family, her budding sexuality, and mysterious superpowers just beginning to awaken deep within her.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has a 78% approval rating with 37 reviews, with an average rating of 6.6/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "As awkward and charming as adolescence, but with twice the supernatural twists, I Am Not Okay With This's first season at times veers into shallow territory, but stays afloat thanks to Sophia Lillis' angsty, raw performance."
Metacritic gave the series a score of 6.8 out of 10 based on 8 critics
IMDB User Rating 8/10 ep 7.6-8.9
Pretty in pink meets Carrie 3/10
Just amazing thriller suspense series. 8/10
Like if 'Carrie' and 'Stranger Things' had a baby 8/10
So average it's boring 7/10
Though reviews are generally positive, the negativity does make me laugh. Just because the series has elements of other stories (Which don't) some are being overly critical.
My main criticism is that the episodes are not long enough and I really enjoyed this "Carrie" meets "The End of the F***ing World" with a touch of "Stranger Things" like clone.
So yes, it feels like a mash up of recycled ideas, even so, it doesn't make it any less enjoyable. Thanks to the chemistry of the cast that do a good job.
Yes they tease you back for what must be a second season and why not, all good simple fun
MGN Review 7/10
