Watch this show if it's the last thing you do

One of the best TV shows Netflix has ever released. This show is such a beautiful representation of how love and joy should be. It is so beautifully and carefully made, with so much detail, color, and just pure happiness exuding throughout each episode. The acting and chemistry from every single person in the cast is absolutely incredible. Every single scene and storyline felt grounded and so genuine I was almost convinced it was real. This show is so refreshing and presents such a new and beautiful take on the joy of queer love that I don't think I have seen before. Please show your kids this show if it's the last thing you do!

Incredibly touching adaptation of a graphic novel series

Watched this series with my 10 and 12 year olds. We loved the story, the characters, and the LGBTQIA+ and other intersectional representation. I probably cried during every episode. 😄🤧 The kids in the series have vulnerable, honest conversations with their peers (and adults); that was so much nicer than so many of the toxic relationship/friendship portrayals I saw in media when I was a kid. Our 12 year old loves the graphic novel series as well! One trigger warning: There is an f slur uttered by an unkind student. There are also a couple of nonconsensual kisses. These choices have varying consequences and conversations that precipitate from them.

Learning from my kids, great examples

I loved watching this with my tween daughter. So much to talk about. The main characters are so thoughtful and expressive about their feeling but in a realistic way. I think it’s a really good example of how to treat others and apologize when you mess up, which we all do. That is how we learn. And I leaned a lot coming form an older generation that treated everything outside of a heterosexual relationship as abnormal. Opened my mind and my heart.

I wish I got to watch shows like this growing up!

Wholesome queer content for people of all ages to enjoy and potentially even learn some lessons in mutual respect. Be warned that the source material does get a little darker/more serious including themes regarding mental health (and so future seasons will likely include this).

NEW FAVORITE SHOW

This show was amazing and addicting! Nothing inappropriate happened in the show except for some bad words and kissing. This show is definitely appropriate for teens and preteens

You may say the reviews are low ages because it’s lgbtq

Kids can handle cussing. Period. I don’t care what you say. Some people say this is good because it’s gay but it honestly is good for mostly all ages. In my opinion though, I prefer the graphic novel.
