There’s something so satisfying and heart-warming about a high-school rom-com, and Netflix seldom leaves us without one for very long. Not long after the release of the warm and fuzzy second instalment of To All The Boys, the streaming service has gifted us with another quirky coming-of-age story, this time in the form of a 30-minute series.
‘Never Have I Ever’ is Exactly What Teen Rom-Coms Should be in 2020
Noisy narrator aside, by the end of the first season, Never Have I Ever, like To All The Boys and the Twilight saga, will have viewers on the fence about which team they’re on in this teenage love triangle (I’ll be shamelessly donning my team Paxton T-shirt until season 2). This show, with its sub-plots, moments of sadness or rage and hilarious awkwardness is the full package.Netflix has once again given strong, passionate voices to populations not often portrayed in Hollywood productions. It celebrates diversity and inclusivity, and the chaotic, messy experiences that we all, as human beings regardless of colour, gender, geography or sexual orientation, have to work through. Never Have I Ever will dig its way into your heart, and with its short episodes, its extremely easy to binge the entire season in one or two sittings and not even feel guilty about it.Essential Millennial Rating: 4 out of 5 avocados
