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.

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…

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

Top Critic

Sierra Capri's Monse Finnie is a fascinating heroine.

Jan 2, 2019 | 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.

Apr 2, 2018 | 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.

    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 :)

    All the characters are great. You get invested in each character. Jasmine is the funniest character ever. Great Show.

    "On My Block" To much drama for a group of 14 year old teens. This show was great however, at first I wasn't very intrigued, it defiantly grew on me and soon became one of my favorite Netflix shows, making it upsetting when I finished season 2. Overall great dramatic show and, I am looking forward to season 3.

    In all honesty I'm confused as to why this show is getting such high ratings. Such terrible acting, jokes aren't at all funny, and the plot is not relatable. Too much action happens off screen as well, not really explained in the best way. And the lingo just doesn't make sense. It takes place in present day but they use slang that was more likely used in the 80s or 90s. "What's the sitch, let's chop it up, people be bonkers" like I understand it's a slapstick drama/comedy, but my god is it lazy. These high ratings show the lack of taste in audiences today, just saying. Netflix you can do better than this, waste of time.
