Analysis

Never Have I Ever

When I started to watch Never Have I ever, I was expecting a standard Netflix romantic comedy, but it’s more than that. Devi needs to make a boyfriend but Devi wants her dad back as well. She could piss off everyone she knows, and maybe postpone discussing her issues, but she’s a messed up soul who wants to recover by letting her dad go.

Eleanor and Fabiola, Devi’s friends, have their own problems and stories. The series isn’t just about Devi. Her nemesis Ben is a lonely boy who’s trying to find his place in the world. Paxton, Devi’s crush is not a traditional Netflix bad guy, he’s a nice boy, he’s talking to Devi, but he’s still worried about his status. He was angry when he found out about Devi’s lie, but he didn’t ruin her reputation. Her cousin Kamala is also trying to solve her problems. What makes this show unique is the characters’ history and stories are presented in the series without feeling forced. Ben’s side of the story told by Andy Samberg was literally a pleasure to watch.

Never Have I Ever

This story of an Indian American teenager who isn’t too good but isn’t too bad either turns out to be relatable. Above all,  the background music and funny remarks makes it a good watch.

What works –

Good background music, entertaining story, Short episodes.

What doesn’t work –

Sudden ending

never have i ever
