“The best portrayal of sex, and teenagers, out there – the sharpest, smartest – dare I say wokest? – comedy I’ve seen in years… This is real character-driven, excellently scripted, show-don’t-tell writing.” GQ
“Pretty close to perfect – flat-out terrific television.” Vogue
“A near masterpiece.” The Telegraph
“A glorious, heartfelt, eye-wateringly funny creation. Immaculately, densely written, glorious. And it’s funny. Endlessly and seemingly effortlessly funny, in a naturalistic way [that] catches you almost unawares and makes you bark with laughter. And then it can pivot smoothly and suddenly into moments that give you a lump in the throat and have you staring at the ceiling trying not to let your tears fall because crying would surely be ridiculous.” The Guardian
