Watched it over a Couple of nights, enjoyed it a lot, couple of I.T actors in it, both very good.
I was looking forward to it for quite a while because I LOVED! ‘The End of the f***ing world’ this is not quite as good for me but still a lot of fun.
heres Hoping season 2 doesn’t take too long to Get made
I thought this started off well, but like so many Netflix series it immediately encounters a momentum problem. Great shows have high momentum. They have a lot of story to tell and so can progress the main arc while delivering entertaining scenes. Think Preacher, or Watchmen, or Russian Doll. These show have good momentum. Sadly, this show does not. Even though the episodes are only 30 minutes long, after four episodes, the momentum is very, very slow. And so although well made I feel like it's wasting my time. Like an RPG full of mindless, busy-work sidequests, I Am Not Okay With This does far too much 'go there, kill ten demon rabbits, come back'– type stuff.
Netflix cant ever be criticised for lacking project diversity.
The impression is, as 'I Am Not Okay With This' races along, that confronting the mental pressures of emotional and sexual anguish common to most teens is the original inspiration for writing this story, the superhero stunts fit nicely into a teens immediate need to avoid reality when life pressures become too great, the graphic violence is the darkness hidden within all of us.
Considering that there has been a number of similar themed shows about metahumans recently 'I am Not Okay With This' just manages to do enough to be interesting, the question is did it offer enough for its target younger audience to earn a renewal, i suspect it has, but it wont become another 'Stranger Things'.
