Critic Reviews for Love, Victor Season 1

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (12)

Despite the differences between their leads, Love, Victor conforms exactly to the narrative shape and modest, crowd-pleasing ambitions of the film that preceded it.

Earnest LGBTQ film spin-off series is endearing and lovely.

Jul 9, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

While Love, Victor gives us a little something sweet, I'm hopeful that the next season will bring something a little bit meatier to viewers of color.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

A near perfect spin off series that is somehow better than the movie it came from. A must watch season that will leave you with quite the cliffhanger.

Jul 6, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

...some of the character beats, particularly when it comes to Victor's selfish behavior in the back half, weren't completely earned, which added to my frustration

Jul 4, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

With each episode clocking in at just under 30 minutes, there's too many characters who aren't given enough motivation or characterization to make them interesting.

Jul 4, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a touching, beautifully handled piece of television to celebrate this socially distanced, lockdown Pride month with.

Shows like this one can play an important educational role for young people exploring their sexuality, but also friends of LGBTQ teenagers and their relatives. [Full review in Spanish]

Jun 26, 2020 | Full Review…

Love, Victor centers characters of color, but never quite digs into what that means.

Jun 23, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

While it doesn't quite replicate the emotional weight of its predecessor, Love, Victor has enough charm and saccharine to gain an invested audience.

Jun 23, 2020 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

It looks and talks like a teen drama, full of the kind of angst and twists common to most young adult TV series. That also happens to be why it stands out and works rather well.

Jun 22, 2020 | Full Review…

Everything about Love, Victor feels like home. The setting and cinematography are instantly recognizable, as are the teachers, and the score of off-beat indie tunes sets an all too familiar tone.

Audience Reviews for Love, Victor: Season 1

  • 3d ago
    Love, Victor is a follow up TV series to the 2018 rom-com: Love, Simon. A coming of age and coming out story, "Love, Victor" is sure to capture the attention of anyone, even outside the LGBTQ community. Excellent acting, on-screen chemistry and a relatable story line for many teenagers who struggle with self-acceptance, this series is perfectly set up for a continuation of story lines across seasons. It's only cliche comes from some of the dialogue which can at times feel a little too angsty, melodramatic for older viewers outside the teen range. The progressive family will surely enjoy Love,Victor as a new binge-series.

    Love, Victor manages to call itself a LGBTQ+ show without any queer relationships halfway through the series - a total disappointment full of stereotypes, outdated cliches and pink money.

    Good show for young people. It has enough charm and sweetness to gain an invested audience.

    One of the best new tv shows of 2020.

    Not as good as Love, Simon but I enjoyed this a lot and can relate. I think if you liked the movie Love, Simon or enjoy good stories of coming of age you should try this show. Thank you, Zylon

    This series did an outstanding job of showing what many young LGBTQ+ Youth may go through. The series mostly focuses on Victor struggling to figure out his identity and does a good job showing the struggle that can take place for many young LGBTQ+ people attempting to come to terms with their sexuality. The series explored several other "social issues" that can occur in a household as well. This series does more than just show problems that are unique to LGBTQ+ Youth and shows a variety of issues that many American families have to deal with. I strongly recommend this series to any young LGBTQ+ people, and to anyone that likes a good love story.

    OMG, absolutely perfect!!

    Love Victor retains the same watchability that its predecessor film had, but the acting is not nearly as strong this time around. In addition, it comes off as a little tone-deaf at times, and can feel self-centered, ignoring the flaws of the main character in favor of pushing the narrative that characters like Victor need to overcome many challenges. While the show does a great job of showcasing that particular theme, it's a little disappointing that it isn't as well rounded in its messages.
