Critic Reviews for Love, Victor Season 1

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (17)

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.

Jun 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Love, Victor feels like it really wants to do that, but while the 10 half-hour episodes rarely drag, they also never really dig into all of the issues brought forward.

Dec 30, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Although groundbreaking in and of itself in many way, Victor's story is most special because of how normally the show treats it and its charismatic and adorable title character. There's just so much here to love.

Jun 16, 2020 | Rating: 9.1/10 | Full Review…

Love, Victor [is] easily digestible and solidly entertaining yet lacking.

Jun 16, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

All told, Love, Victor ambles along, deliberately bland and pleasantly toothless. Having seen the whole season, it's completely appropriate for its young adult audience and therefore downright ridiculous that Disney Plus punted Love, Victor to Hulu.

Jun 15, 2020 | Full Review…

There are much better TV seasons involving gay teens figuring out when, how, and why to speak their truth to the people they love, but this one's heart is largely in the right place, and sometimes, sincerity's enough.

Jun 15, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Love, Victor would do well to lean into this and keep providing other teens who live in conservative areas or far away from fellow queer folks a sense of community and a whole pantheon of futures they can dream of.

Dec 30, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With the identities laid out on the table in Love, Victor, the mystery is gone and the digital pen-palling devoid of room for mystery, unknowingness, and gradation of feeling.

Dec 30, 2020 | 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…

Anyone who may have thought Simon a bit schmaltzy may cringe at Victor's "Afterschool Special" tendencies.

Jun 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Though it doesn't take as many bold chances as I'd hoped it would, Love, Victor does still possess an undeniable charm.

Jun 15, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

On the whole, Love, Victor is an easy, breezy romcom that makes for a delightful weekend binge. The romantic tropes are well trod and Love, Victor deploys them charmingly.

    Worst story plot. This series was the representation of true love, respect, coming out. But 2nd season is pathetic, its not love. Bad 2nd season

    The first season was really good, looking forward to watch season 2 now. The cast is doing a great job.
  • Jun 04, 2021
    sat through the first episode and i'm pretty sure that counts as a hate crime.
  • Apr 25, 2021
    Whilst it doesn't offer anything that new in terms of content, it is still warm, thoughtful and surprisingly adult. I wish I'd had this show when I was a teenager, but even as an adult, there's certainly a lot to love.

    I do not like this at all
  • Mar 20, 2021
