I almost skipped this one, because of how aggressively it was marketed to me. Then my interest reemerged when Husky closed his youtube channel and I thought for a second, this actress looks a lot like his GF. Eventually I just wanted ONE episode to waste some odd 40 minutes and binged it until 5 am.
This series is stupid, until it is not. You know how in Suits they tried to change directions and make Mike into a banker, but lacked the skill to execute it in an interesting way and instead of an evolving series, we got a wallpaper/jargon change until they 180°ed and stuck to what they were good at? This is what makes this series special, they break the structure, with success. It is like a disgusting joke, where the comedian just keeps going to see how far they can push it. I laughed out loud at times. There isn't a redeemable character to be found, life sucks and it is beautiful. It is so over the top at times, but fully self aware. It blends teeny movie vibes with the absurd and I think it will alienate fans of either genre. It is one of the most original works I've seen in the last 10 years. I'd say, if you like Buffy or Firefly this might be for you, though it really stands on it's own.
I was shocked to see how many of the actors are actually from the south, since I didn't buy any of their accents for a second. Maybe it is the attempt to speak southern, while still pronouncing clearly, really odd...
TLDR: Binged. Original, unusual, for fans of both, the absurd and Teenie Movies, but not either.
