Faking It: Season 1 Reviews

October 3, 2018
It's disheartening that a show like Faking It could have so much potential with smart writing, a great set of actors and a provocative premise, and then have its relevance and credibility destroyed.
October 3, 2018
The fantasy element of the show is funny, but the irony of the situation needs to remain clear.

Bounces between snark and sweet and with a side of pathos.

Bubbly and fun, Faking It presents a fresh perspective of high school culture.

Anyone following MTV's Awkward will be sure to love the new series, but even non-fans won't fake their enjoyment of the new show.

The coming-of-age-and-coming-out story is certainly a time-honored one in the LGBT cinematic canon, and having both girls playing gay-for-social-cachet is an interesting farcial spin.

It could be an interesting twist for Amy to stop pretending to be gay and suddenly be pretending to be straight.

About as relevant to the gay lifestyle as Modern Family, Faking It shoots for the stars, but only hits a bunch of brightly colored rainbows on "Vote for Me" posters.

The engine driving this show is female friendship, the kind strong enough to get you through even high school. For Amy and Karma, we want that.

Faking It isn't anything more than a smarter-than-average high school comedy, but there's a freshness to it, perhaps because so many of the key people involved are relative newcomers.

A bland high school comedy, it's as empty a gesture as two drunk, straight girls grasping for attention by making out in front of a group of hollering guys.
