News & Interviews for Never Have I Ever: Season 1
Even when the show gets a bit predictable, in terms of teen relationships and parental conflicts, it remains so endearing that I couldn't fault it. Plus, it has enough originality and fun little quirks... to keep it feeling fresh.
When Ramakrishnan is paired with Ramona Young and Lee Rodriguez as besties Eleanor and Fabiola, respectively, the trio have all the crackling spark of a John Hughes movie.
The show is also smartly written, so that the season builds to a climax that is organic and, I found, moving.
Although the show fulfills its obligation to be breezy and fun, mainly as a teen-centric piece of fluff, never does it ever stretch to become anything more than another Netflix nothingburger.
It asserts itself with sassy confidence right away, not just in Devi's voice but in the narrative's framing.
It's a fresh approach to teen shows, illustrating themes of familial expectations and peer pressure without feeling like an after school special, and its many quirks... make it worth savoring.
Equal parts comedy, heartbreak and romance, Never Have I Ever is the Netflix comedy worth binge-watching next.
It's refreshing to see white actors in the minority, and if I found it a bit too glib for my taste, it might be that it's skewed to a younger populace.
Never Have I Ever perplexingly dabbles in casual Islamophobia, ableism, and fatphobia.
It's a funny, laugh-out-loud comedy with a big nod to diversity and cultures in our United States. I love this series and can't wait for Season 2. Maitreyi Ramakrishnan's breakout performance.
Audience Reviews for Never Have I Ever: Season 1
Oct 15, 2020A very charming series! The writing may have been a little bit cheesy at times, but in a lovable, goofy way. All of the actors did a fantastic job and I loved the representation. "Never Have I Ever" tackled a lot of serious topics in a skillful manner. I feel like the director and writers really took their time to make sure that was done properly. Overall: Even when the plot was silly and predictable, I enjoyed every second of it.
Sep 23, 2020This show came highly recommended to me so I watched it.. and I have mixed feelings! It was definitely entertaining and relatable, but mostly consisted of teen drama that sometimes felt cheesy. There were times when I wasn't even rooting for the main character. So overall I think it was meh, but I might watch season 2 when it comes out just to see what their do with the story!
Sep 13, 2020I'm a grown woman with no kids, but loved this show regardless. It was funny, emotionally honest, and a portrait of a family and experience that I hadn't seen before but which felt really true. Finally, it's far more vulnerable than The Mindy Projects, which I appreciate. TMP lost me b/c it was too focused on jokes and less on character and emotion.
Sep 07, 2020Sweet coming of age story.
Sep 01, 2020What can I say? Not only did I love this show, I watched it multiple times. I am a big fan of Mindy Kaldng, and I feel like I share her sense of humor! I especially like the love interests she has. The witty, wise-cracking deadpan (and sometimes venomous) banter is freaking hilarious (and sometimes way harsh). I can't wait to see season 2!
Aug 30, 2020Every second was enjoyable. I could watch it over and over
Aug 09, 2020What is this obscene piece of sh.t? A 14 year old teen asking for sex? Garbage!
Aug 01, 2020Being an Indian viewer, the main thing that I would like to do is give a pat to Mindy Kaling for her sensational casting of Matreyi as the lead for the show. She is gorgeous in an Indian kind of beauty-scaffolding and has mad ability when it comes to pulling off that hot-headed vulnerable Indian teen look. The rest of the cast supports her well and overall, this is one of my favourite shows this year
Jul 21, 2020Feels like you're going to watch a fun, raunchy, modern teen comedy, but it quickly evolves into so much more. Great!
Jul 14, 2020This show is amazing! So funny and the actors are spectacular I love it when shows come out of nowhere and are insanely good.
