June 13, 2018
An endearing tribute to young adulthood - its energy, its vitality, and its uncertainty.

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

Like Entourage, How to Make It isn't consistently funny enough, and it doesn't commit enough to developing its characters, to make for solid viewer investment.

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.

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.

This show prioritizes its faithfulness to the cultural moment by dramatizing it with uncommon style and a little grace as well.

The plots, such as they are, have a little more discipline and focus than they did in season 1.
