It's kind of difficult to categorize RESULTS. It's mainly about relationships, so it's sort of a romance, but it's definitely not a romcom: There's not much com, and the rom takes effort to tease out. Nonetheless, the human connections here feel very real, thanks to the actors. Characters behave the way that real-life people actually might, and the three protagonists talk to each other that way real people really communicate -- sometimes not very effectively and sometimes not too politely. It's not always clear at first what's driving them, especially Danny, but in the end we see that his motives make sense, even if his methods aren't especially effective.

The weakness in this triangle is Kat. She's the least developed of the trio, and we rarely see her in her own environment. It's less obvious what she wants and why: She exists mainly in relation to Trevor and Danny. But still, she feels authentic. It's not always clear where Results is headed, but the characters will make you curious enough to follow along.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
