What I liked

The actors were very likable, the script was great – it did a really good job of portraying the characters as complex working through traumas. Really loved how it dealt with LGBT themes – I don’t see enough of that in the world! The sister and mom were particular standouts to me, though I thought the whole cast was great. =) Really appreciated how the show touched on addiction and meetings.

What I didn't like

I think the script was based on existing fanfic? So there were a lot of short scenes that made it feel a little choppy at times. It was fine, I still followed the story, but it might be nice if there could be longer scenes that flowed together more, or maybe if the transitions were smoother?

My overall impression

very endearing, sweet, poignant show that touches on some really important topics with beloved characters
