An endearing tribute to young adulthood - its energy, its vitality, and its uncertainty.

Not a bad start to the season and there was no shortage of already memorable quotes. I was glad they didn't try to jam too much into the premiere and am very excited to see the sophomore season unfold.

While there is still this cinema verite feel to things, there is also a purpose and direction to the season.

I still don't know that it's quite the ideal version of this kind of bros-will-be-bros travelogue format, but it's not an unpleasant way to spend a half hour late on a Sunday night.

As season debuts go, particularly for a show that will be new to many viewers, How To Make It does a terrific job of trusting what it's established.

The writing wasn't strong enough and, most importantly perhaps, the characters and actors who played them were never likable.
