These eight episodes, each around 25 minutes, never drag; they fly by with tinsel fluttering behind them.

The show, led by Midori Francis and Austin Abrams, is heartwarming and feels like a modern classic. Like we should be watching these teens figure themselves out every holiday season for the next couple of years, that's how good it is.

Nov 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Dash & Lily just works. Abrams gives good smolder, and Francis is terrific, delivering a breakout performance in a role that could be intensely annoying but that she makes wounded and winning.

Nov 20, 2020 | Full Review…

What I love most about Dash & Lily is that it also feels like a love letter to New York City during this time of year, which I understand completely.

Nov 17, 2020 | Full Review…

The quest/scavenger hunt/dare aspect, the New York of it all, the literary and other cultural references and the diverse cast mean this is elevated above what you might expect from a Netflix Christmas romance.

May this sweet series become a Christmas classic of its own, hopefully with equally enchanting seasons to come.

Nov 13, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Dash & Lily made me smile in its efforts to invigorate a sense of Christmas cheer in me - an enjoyable piece of escapism to deck the halls with.

Nov 13, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

There is absolutely no denying that there's also a very big place in my heart for charming, feel-good content like this.

Nov 13, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's about nice people who deserve happiness experiencing kindness when they need it and falling in love. It's cute, people! We deserve this!

The Waitress's offbeat favorite Christmas Wrapping is a spiritual cool aunt to Dash & Lily. Audiences of any age will hear at least one tune they'll want to add to their Christmas mix.

Nov 13, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

While Abrams is delightful as the Grinch-turned-believer Dash (an impressive turn for those most familiar with his darker-themed work), it's Francis that really packs the charming punch.

So sweet and you don't even have to be a big Christmas person to enjoy it

    Typical rom-com drivel.

    Really sweet. Not realistic for the average person but definitely a feel good show! New York and Christmas together was wonderful.

    This would be a below average show on the Hallmark channel

    I absolutely adored this show. Unlike most of the people who binged this straight through, I'd wanted to savor the story because it was that good. As a long time New Yorker, this felt nostalgic in a lot of ways, especially nowadays when we can't even celebrate normally with the festivities because of the pandemic. Seeing New York City in all of the festive glory and the gleamy backdrop of two teens burgeoning romance via a notebook (with friends and family involvement) was truly a magical journey. Sure, the huge, lavish apartments, unlikely connections and teenagers who are overly articulate and mature for their age is far from reality, but it all worked here and I couldn't help but get wrapped in the whimsy of it all. Both leads, Austin Abrams and Midori Francis were wonderful as so as the supportive cast. The main leads were able to provide a ton of good chemistry despite barely having screen time most of the time until towards the end. I highly recommend Dash & Lily to check out this 2020 holiday season for some of the best feel good holiday content on Netflix. Trust me, we ALL need it.

    I loved this show. It was different and i enjoyed going through the journey with the characters as they did the dares.
  • Nov 22, 2020
    Did for me what so many Hallmark movies failed at: romance with actual holiday cheer. Never understood what is so romantic about christmas. It's a very weird, very american concept. But... I will concede that this series was well pitched. The characters are just the right amount of relatable while still belonging to that weird fantasy of what real people are like. Fun stuff

    Naked boyfriends in bed every episode is not what my 14 year old needs to watch with me?!?

    Super feel good series with great actors, hope there is a season 2!
