The first three or four episodes were watchable because the introduction to the characters was interesting. After that, stereotypes kicked in with a vengeance. i.e. the impulsive were super impulsive, the long suffering were martyrs that might as well still been carrying their crosses around, the innocent were dimwitted yet good-natured and naive (and, if female, left food on their faces while eating at least once), angry parents were harsh and unfeeling. There was all too much moping and misunderstanding for me to suspend disbelief. Also, it didn't pass the Bechdel smell test -- if women were conversing, it was about men - and the lead female went from normal to gang moll by adding a cap tilted sideways. Really, peeps?

There was a strong portrayal of friendship,, and the one somewhat believable character was an older man, and he played the role well. The middle 12-14 episodes were nowhere near as good as the first three and last three, so it was a bit of a slog. If you have a head cold and are stuck at home with no inclination to warm up your thinky bits, this is the series to watch.
