The show is about an Indian girl named Devi, whose father died in front of her while she was performing in her school’s orchestra concert. It takes us through her experience coping with his death, as well as the many other over-dramatic crises that come with being a teenage girl in high school. We see her struggle with “boy drama,” fights with her two best friends, family tension, and disputes with her rival whom she has competed with academically her whole life.
What Julia Is Watching During the Pandemic-
Similarly, I appreciated how realistic the characters were in their appearances. The actors weren’t chosen because they looked like magazine models, which is the tactic many shows that target teenagers and young adults tend to use, but instead they use regular-looking actors to make it more relatable for the audience. Their stories really resonated with me because I saw myself in them at times, unlike how I feel when I’m watching shows where all characters look like they just walked off the New York Fashion Week runway.
"Overall, I highly recommend this program if you are looking for a good comedy with some deeper undertones. It’s only on its first season, but I’m eagerly awaiting the next one." - Julia Colucci
