Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Maggie is a romantic comedy series about a woman with psychic powers who avoids relationships because she can see her own future. Though the main character essentially has superpowers, they are treated very casually by the script and the characters. The show mainly steers clear of violence and profanity, but lots of the jokes are about sex and relationships, alcohol, and some drug use. The series feels like a bit of a throwback, taking place in a romanticized post-college adult world, but one that feels a lot like 1990s–2000s high school-set romcoms like The O.C. or 90210.
Is It Any Good?
This show's basic premise, a psychic who avoids her own emotional life, has the potential to be both fun and philosophical. Maggie makes viewers ponder: How would knowing that something will end badly change your approach to it? The throwback romcom feels a little out of place in the streaming era, but there's a lot of good stuff here, including a short run time where the writers pack a lot of sharp comic banter and plot development into sitcom-length episodes; a sprawling, deep cast of characters; and a light, playful tone that never takes Maggie's sci-fi powers too seriously or lets them dominate the action.
