Like a lot of Netflix shows (and I guess just television shows in general), ‘Never Have I Ever’ suffers from weak characterization/casting. This lack of draw to its characters disrupts any attempts at making jokes or building moments because it is difficult to invest into something that is hard to care about. As a pilot, episode 1 fails to build a captivating scenario instead choosing to set-up something bland and predictable. Probably won’t continue watching this one.
3/10 – Bad
