What I liked

The show is super fun and surprisingly reflective of the non-binary identity experience! The sorority and frat system is one of the most saturated microcosms of the gender binary and modern gender expectations so I thought it was really lovely to use that as a setting to explore how coming out as nonbinary effects personal relationships and self-consciousness!Everyone had really really good singing voices, and although the ensemble was a big part of the show, I felt they all stood out in their own ways representative of different archetypes and people you would meet in college. It’s a fun watch that allows you to get as introspective as you’re ready to. It was kind of giving house bunny meets spider verse! Cades tomatoes score: 85% fresh
