Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Starstruck is a romantic comedy series about a woman from New Zealand (Rose Matafeo) who starts dating one of London's biggest celebrities. It's a simple premise that revolves around the central character's dating and sex life. The series includes sexual content throughout, including simulated sex, characters appearing in their underwear, and many discussions and jokes about sex. Alcohol is also a major part of the series, as the characters visit clubs and pubs, and often appear and talk about being drunk.
Is It Any Good?
Rose Malafeo has an easy charm and wit that makes her fun to root for; beyond that, there's not a lot to this romcom, which just follows Malafeo's Jessie through the ups and downs of her dating life. The main Starstruck thread sees Jessie and her celebrity paramour Tom (Nikesh Patel) fall together and apart and together and apart as they get to know each other. It's easy to watch, but other than Malafeo Starstruck doesn't really have any standout aspects to it, which makes watching it less of a heavy love affair and more of a pleasant way to pass the time.
