Another person with a 10 out of 10 review wrote: “Awesome party episode, many connections, immaturity, and heartwarming bits too. Not a bad one, definitely awkward and grotesque! I love learning about various characters each episode plus the soundtrack is electrifying. The pure drama is marvelously done well!”
The person who gave the show a lowly 7 out of 10 wrote: “If you watch the first 5 minutes of the pilot episode you will notice that the show seemed to be about something with a much higher perspective than just high school drama and the following episodes still showed quality but slowly also showed the story will remain about the characters. Not that that’s a bad thing, i just expected something with a higher scale and point of view. Still good and looking forward to next 2 episodes.” [sic]
So even the lowest review is still looking forward to the next episode.
