What I liked

The fire alarm scenes in between were short, sweet, and to the point. Also loved the LAST scene about milk. SOOOO GOOD.

What I didn't like

I get that it was trying to make me cringe with how uncomfortable the script was written and how the actors portrayed the characters, but most of the time, I didn’t feel like anyone was fully committed (except the girl playing the mom and other roles) in how cringeworthy the scenes are. Most of the scenes actually didn’t even feel that cringeworthy to me. More like, sometimes I wanted to cringe, and sometimes I didn’t.

My overall impression

The cringeworthy moments are hit and miss, and while some of the scenes are really strong, it has additional scenes that are not quite as tight or as good as the other scenes, making the whole show a decent show where it could be a strong, tight, stellar show with less scenes and a shorter runtime.
