I feel that people don't understand what 10/10 and 1/10 means, because all the reviews I saw seemed to be either one of those. It's not a bad show, actually it is quite entertaining. Is it shocking and brilliant? Is it thought provoking? Not really. I mean I guess it's bit of a criticism on the modern world: how we're all shallow and we don't connect and it's hard to find meaning in life etc. etc. but it's not really profound or anything. It's kind of just stating the obvious. And yes ofc love and 'true' and 'real' connection are the answers to all of that, but U know, everybody knows that too. However the actors are good and the characters are fun to watch and they definitely have some character development. Both of the main characters are quite unlikable in the beginning, but at the end of the season there really is a feeling that they're likable, almost lovable people. Also the couple do have a really nice chemistry, which is nice. And it also has the classic theme that for one to be good you have to first also do bad things and know your evil side, your shadow, although it doesn't necessarily convey that that well. Overall it's a good first season, not amazing, but I look forward to seeing what the next season will be like.
