- 'Love, Victor' reviews are in and they're pretty good. With an 83% score in Rotten Tomatoes.
- Consensus is that the show is as funny, warm and feel-good as 'Love, Simon', and most characters are stand outs, maybe even a bit too much and they overshadow Victor sometimes.
- The show does a great job at separating Victor's latino-conservative-religious-middle class coming out story from Simon's white-liberal-supportive-rich-and overall privileged coming out story. [Spoiler (click to open)]Ep. 1 ends with Victor going: "I'm sorry Simon, but my story is nothing like yours."
- Most critics say the show plays a bit too safe, and at moments it feels a bit After-school-special-ish. (probably because it was developed for Disney+) so don't expect any full frontal bareback sex.
- There are a few 'Love, Simon' cameos and easter eggs.
- All 10 half-hour episodes drop this Wednesday.
LOVE, VICTOR is a feel-good triumph that asks nothing more from you than to look on the bright side, have empathy for those boldly finding their way and stan Benji’s burgeoning latte art.@reedgaudens reviews ⤵️https://t.co/FdcWnLKqUZ— FanSided Entertainment (@FanSided_ENT) June 8, 2020
Early thoughts on Love, Victor (my full review coming out later this week): it's charming, heartfelt, & at times moving, buoyed by likeable performance f/ Michael Cimino. It doesn't say something new that Love, Simon hasn't said before, but it doesn't make it any less impactful. pic.twitter.com/zgDiGvR5dK— Reyzando N (@reyzando) June 8, 2020
Review: Hulu's “Love, Victor” could be great if it prioritized substance over schmaltz https://t.co/xgUhyeSfF2— TIME (@TIME) June 11, 2020
