Not terrible, but not great either...

I went into this assuming I would hate it, and I was.... not wrong. This weird, hipster-y love child of all teen-sitcoms from the 90s, and every millennial stereotype ever spawned occasionally delivers mild chuckles...but comes across more like a long conversation between the two main characters, rather than an actual show. The supporting cast are very painfully only there to 'support' and every interaction outside of Benji and Esther (if there even are any) is used as an avenue to set the stage for the very heavily implied romantic relationship that is sure to blossom between them. Benji and Esther's dialogue as well is rather predictable and every situation is an opportunity to either a)talk about their self-deprecating tendencies (which are very NOT body-positive), or b)verbalize their frustrations about not being 'cool kids'. On that note, parents should be aware that these kids are SUPES depressed, and are trying to act like they don't care, but they do. They REALLY do. As a result, things can get rather depressing really fast. Parents, also be aware that the dialogue contains the typical teen-related language like orgasms, sexual acts, bodily fluids, penis-jokes, etc. The sexual situations are generally only addressed via dialogue, so no acts are shown, though they may be discussed rather graphically.
