    What can I say as a cis white male that will make any impact on what this modern reimagining of an already cult classic movie has achieved? What can I say that will encourage you to watch it, if you've not done so already? Who knows. I'mma just say what feels intuitive… Incisive and articulate, and intelligent in its humour, it makes for captivating viewing, with that being both informative and provocative I cannot ignore how ‘that' scene and story made me feel. Nor, it seems (I've retyped this about 20 times before deciding), can I articulate it satisfactorily Already more impactive and resolute than it's namesake, this is truly powerful

    Começando pela 1° temporada é uma série que começa de maneira muito boa, falando dos alunos que lutam pelos seus direitos na faculdade Winchester, o que tentam com muito esforço vencer a desigualdade, o que foi bom também aqui é a diversidade não só em pessoas mas em personalidades, como Sam que é a garota contestadora que tem uma rádio que leva o nome da série, além de Joelle que é a garota determinada, Reggie que sofreu um grande trauma no qual o policial aponta a arma para ele, e sem perceber muitos poderiam achar isso normal pois no caso o cara estaria começando uma discussão, eis o que aconteceu um cara branco cantando sem perceber falou a palavra 'N' que é muito ofensiva se dita por um branco ou de modo agressivo para as pessoas negras, enfim ele contestou e a última coisa que sabemos é que o namorado de Sam teria ligado para a polícia, mas sem saber que estaria criando uma confusão dessa proporção a Reggie, enfim isso causou um grande trauma a ele que até chorou secretamente no seu quarto. Eu digo a série foi extremamente necessária, por terem debates pertinentes, de fato seu começo foi cheio de boas explicações sobre como o racismo nunca mesmo acabou, e eu até pensava que tudo estava normalizado desde os anos 2000, mas foi ótimo para dar muita informação a todos. E tem um fato curioso: não é sobre a série, mas de pessoas que já presenciei que eram pessoas negras condizentes com o racismo realmente é triste, é necessária para todos assistirem essa linda primeira temporada, que foi inteligente na temática que fez abrir a mentes de muitos.

    I think this season (and whole series) was very well written, acted, edited and produced. Just finished watching season 4. It was great to see something with such clear personality, perspective and drive that started from the beginning and carried all the way through.

    Preachy and whiny, like being lectured at by a self-righteous, spoiled teenager who has little experience of the world.
  • Sep 11, 2020
    Insulting, patronizing, and very deceptive.

    An amazing and refreshing show. It tackles hard issues that makes you think with sharp dialogues, natation and humour. The cast is so talented. Character oriented. The photography direction is energetic and beautiful. And the soundtrack is sooo good! Highly recommend.

    The first 4 episodes are a bit tough to watch but things really change in episode 5 and it maintains the high level until the end. Be brave and you will be rewarded.

    A beautifully shot, unapologetic provocative, brilliantly written with great, clever humor and great performances, manage to put together one of the best Netflix shows. Those calling out the show literally represent the problems the show is trying to encapsulate. Those who give negative reviews of the show without watching really should, as it shows them exactly why they are a problem. This is a show that should be watched universally, as it is socially aware, and deals with problems in society today.

    Such a groovy show. Even S3 had me going. Strong female characters, which is what is important in this time of age. Insanely well made with different angles on making a tv-show. Really great!
