“I am not okay with this” storyline
Without dropping any major spoilers, I’ll give you an idea about what this season is about. Firstly, it is a coming-of-age teen drama. So if you are into that, read on. Basically, Syd is just another socially awkward teenager battling her way through the difficulties of high school. Apart from this, she has things to deal with at home as well. Unfortunately, she falls in love with her best friend, and quite painfully for her, the feelings aren’t mutual. So yeah, classic teen drama. However, what makes it super cool is – Syd has superpowers. Mental yeah?
Reasons to watch it
Well for one, the series is produced by 21 Laps Entertainment – the same guys who gifted us with Stranger Things and Night at the Museum. Also, it is directed by Jonathan Entwistle, who is known for “The End of the F***ing World”. Not only that, the cast is pretty cool too. Syd is played by “It’s” Sophia Lillis. Also, from “It” we have Wyatt Oleff playing Stanley Barber, who is Syd’s confident neighbor. Sofia Bryant, who plays the role of Dina, is Syd’s best friend. And Dina’s boyfriend Brad Lewis, whom we all don’t like, is played by Richard Ellis. Lastly, Syd’s mum is played by Kathleen Rose Perkins (Maggie), and brother Liam by Aidan Wojtak-Hissong.
