Overall, the cast are energetic, likeable and up for a variety of playful scenes. I especially enjoyed the way polyamory, bisexuality and other kinds of sexuality are integrated without so much as a shrug – adorably hashtag millennial. Unfortunately, occasional forays into dangerous territory like sexism or homophobia let it cross from charmingly uncomfortable into downright cringeworthy from time to time – while it’s good for a punchline to reverse audience assumptions, they’d be clever to remember how much we all crave relief!

It is one I wish I’d seen as a wide-eyed teen, as it maybe could’ve helped to lightheartedly clear up a couple things about my body which my teachers and parents evidently wouldn’t touch with even each others’ barge poles (THREE holes?!).
