THR's review calls the show "meandering" and tonally "erratic." However, the cast gives generally winning performances.
A small gripe, but one that's actually pretty jarring the more you watch the show, is that the cast members playing high school-aged characters all look mid-to-late 20s (because they all are actually in their mid-to-late 20s).
The plan for the series is to follow the main character across all of the elections in his life, devoting one season to each election. Which makes this initial season (focusing on his student council president election) iffy viewing.
I figured we could make this a discussion post, so be sure to tag spoilers and also to be wary of spoilers. I have .... thoughts, and I'm not entirely sure about how I feel lol.
