Critic Reviews for Everything's Gonna Be Okay Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (11)

It's not just the performances that give "Everything's Gonna Be Okay" a lived-in feel. There's also a careful attention to small details that show how the series hasn't forgotten what's come before.

If the series can maintain this momentum, it could become the next big thing in American pop culture, and deservedly so.

Jan 16, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Thomas and this show is far more interested in the weirder, funnier, more real moments that can happen in between life's seemingly biggest events than drawing out unnecessary drama.

Jan 17, 2020 | Full Review…

A winsome, witty new series from an Australian comedy wunderkind.

Jan 16, 2020 | Full Review…

The dialogue is sometimes quite amusing... But the jokes suffer from its distracted direction, which isn't helped by an annoyingly jaunty score and the kind of over-lit cinematography befitting of a daytime TV soap opera.

Feb 5, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Everything's Gonna Be Okay is delightful. It's uncomfortably honest at times. And if you're easily moved to tears it has a few of those TV moments that kind of break you.

Jan 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Their fierce fealty to each other and to their familial unit is compelling and poignant without ever devolving into schmaltzy sentimentality.

May 22, 2020 | Full Review…

It's glorious and good for the soul.

Feb 26, 2020 | Full Review…

"Everything's Gonna Be Okay" is flawed but promising. The characters are all likable enough and work well together, so if the show is able to resolve its pacing issues, it stands a real chance of developing into one of the network's better programs.

Feb 26, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Family love and acceptance, lots of romance in sweet series.

Jan 27, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Everything Is Gonna Be Okay has three fascinating leads and a multi-layered approach to showing how its characters will find themselves as the first season goes on.

Jan 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Silly, sweet, poignant and unapologetic in its saucy sex-positive attitudes, Okay is the second terrific Freeform series in as many weeks.

    This is a great comedy for lebgtq+ people, it showcases the main character going through the ups, and downs of everyday life. If you enjoy Please like me who shares the same main actor, then you'll love Everythings gonna be okay.

    This a warm and intelligent comedy which left me wanting more...can't wait for the next season! Josh Thomas is a revelation! Most episodes brought me to tears AND out-loud laughs, which is a precious and difficult-to-achieve combination. ❤️

    Quirky, amusing, and loveable cast. Brings a great humor even to the most uncomfortable of subjects

    I love when a show is not predicable.
  • Mar 11, 2020
    Love it... need more seasons

    This show is honest and charming while still being really funny. While there probably aren't very many families that will directly identify with the setup, I think everyone can identify with emotions and reactions the characters have. The writing is superb, and I hope the show continues for several more seasons.

    Something original with a unique voice!

    Show creator Josh Thomas, who also created the sublime "Please Like Me," is a singular talent. He has created a truly touching and funny story of a very unconventional family: an older brother raising his younger sisters, one who is autistic. The dialogue is witty, the characters are well drawn, and the acting is genuine. Full disclosure: I'm not usually one for shows with children, so the fact I watch and rewatch episodes multiple times is saying something. Truly special show.

    Used to love Josh Thomas' quirky and authentic Aussie humor but this show is boring af. Bad acting, bad jokes, bad storyline with a premise that could have been awesome but somehow is not going anywhere. For me is a no.
  • Feb 23, 2020
    Absolutely brilliant show, it resonated with me and unlike a lot of american tv shows it doesn't force emotions on you and the jokes are subtle. As someone who has lost a parent and is neurodiverse, I feel I can really connect with multiple characters in "Everything is going to be okay". The port-rail of Matilda is brilliant. So much of what how she sees the world and the world treats her I feel I can connect with. The episodes are the right length and you feel you are getting snippets and a small window into how the family are getting through life and trying to adjust to the scenario they've found themselves in. A must watch. Loved it.
