Critic Reviews for On My Block Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8)

It's a combination that at first doesn't really seem to click, but by the end of the season, On My Block does feel like a world unto itself, a universe with its own rules and logic.

Mar 19, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

On My Block holds up the realities of these kids' lives-deportation, poverty, racism-while refusing to define them solely by their obstacles.

Sierra Capri's Monse Finnie is a fascinating heroine.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The shifts from football game high jinks or a character's apple-bong-toking abuelita to the question of whether to shoot another teenager in the head are disconcerting, to say the least.

Mar 29, 2018 | Full Review…

On My Block had me hooked in the first five minutes.

Mar 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Much of On My Block functions like adolescence: it's awkward, uncomfortable, off-balance, with plenty of ups and downs. But it's also immensely charming.

Dec 20, 2018 | Full Review…

It's heartwarming, it's funny, it's sad. It's got a phenomenal soundtrack... It's one of the better overall original shows on Netflix by far.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall, the chemistry on-screen with this group is phenomenal and they hold the story together rather well for what it is.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

On My Block is the little off-network show that makes huge strides in opening the family comedy category to all slices of American life.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

On My Block is ambitious and working to take risks in youth sitcom and drama. It is an accurate depiction of the emotionality in friendships and how it affects our decisions, sense of urgency and direction.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

On My Block has four great leads and its overall light tone give the dramatic moments even more impact.

Apr 4, 2018 | Full Review…

But these drawbacks don't manage to derail the series, which is pretty hard to switch off after three or four episodes as it hurtles towards a shocking finale.

    Should be retitled to: "Where's Caesar?" because he's all the other characters ever talk about when he's not onscreen. Caesar made the decision to join a gang and it's literally ruining all of their lives and none of his friends hold him accountable for it. Unwatchable YA

    I enjoyed the show a lot love abuelita and jasmin but the romance between Cesar and Moese isnt the best I very much dislike the 14 and 15 year old sex sessions between the two.

    This was a very emotional roller coaster to ride. Hope they continue impacting people's life's!

    This show is exceptional. While watching the very well written and well acted characters go through personal growth and Mortal peril I truly felt invested. I don't think I have ever experienced such a broad range of emotions from laughter to fear to grief from just one episode of a show before.

    This is a pretty good show. It definitely illustrates how normal teenage life goes on even in the face of violence and marginalization. Some of the acting is weak- especially Monse and Cesar. Cesar is good at doing the flirty, fun, teen acting, but his performance kind of falls down when he has to play big emotions. He kind of just makes a pinched up, pained face and it doesn't translate as real. Monse always says all her lines with the same kind of tone and rarely shows any emotion. Since these two characters especially are put into a lot of emotional situations, this is where the show falls down for me. Most of these scenes just don't play. Their relationship drama also gets tired really quick. It feels like they're trying to create drama. Other storylines that irked me and knocked my rating down a bit are pretty much Jamal's entire personality. Whenever he yells at the crew about his problems it just feels silly because their problems are so much bigger than him. Also they all bully Jasmine. Other than that it's a pretty good show and very entertaining. I just hope season 2 ditches some of the melodrama between Monse and Cesar.

    Oof, terrible, incoherent, teenagers talking like 30+ waste of time

    Must see show it's funny and it's very real
  • Sep 03, 2019
    Amazing show with good actors, interesting characters and fanatic writing. I love it. I just wish it were longer than 30 minutes. This is not your average teen show. It has heart :)
