Got in late couldn’t keep up ... not invested enough to really dive in; background noise mostly.

Watched the first couple of episodes, and had to stop because it got nowhere near the books.

It's a decent show to watch and it was entertaining enough. Not my absolute favourite one out there, but it's a lot more preferable to other shows.

This was quite a good series overall with great story elements - I have a couple complaints though. There were scenes that were able to progress forwards because a character knew what to do after reading about it in a book. I understand that this has to be done sometimes, but it can be annoying because it felt that it happened too much in the latest season. The singing parts added to the story were quite good and I liked them a lot - I loved Elliot’s take of “Don’t Get Me Wrong”. My favorite seasons were probably season 3 and 4 with season 5 being the weakest. I enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 heavily also. The representation in the story is quite good, but deaf representation is a bit awkward. People cannot read lips 100% of the time - that’s just not how it works. I do appreciate the addition of sign language and thought that was an amazing idea. Also, the “deaf” episode was quite good (6 short stories). Much better than I thought it would be if I’m being real. I did like the conclusion for some characters, but am annoyed at others. I had a hard time finishing the final season because I really did not want it to end. Made me a bit depressed. 🤣 Recency bias might be skewing my review score here, but I can definitely say the first 4 seasons are great. The 5th… it’s not bad, but it’s not great. 7/10 overall.

That season 4 finale destroyed me. I saw it over a year ago and I’m still not over it. Definitely one of the most heartbreaking season finales I’ve seen.

Aside from the occasional unnecessary belting out of a song, it was lots of fun

This is a complete guilty pleasure for me. Some parts are cringy but I loved the ride. I had to put the fact that it’s not like the books (which I love) behind me quickly.

Started out strong, but 3 episodes into season 2 and I'm starting to struggle with wanting to continue watching....

Had to change it from 9 to 10 after the final season. This show has been good from the first episode till the last and I always had a laugh, was fascinated and couldn't wait to see the next episode. The characters are all very unique and special and if you like magic, adult humor and some profanities from time to time then this show is a must see and I can absolutely recommend it. I have heard that it's not as good as the books tho (I didn't read them).

Just started with the last season. It starts strong and catches my attention right away but I miss Q. Still a reeally funny and amazing show tho! I can't wait for the big final! If you haven't seen it yet, start now! it's basically Harry Potter on drugs and for grown ups and funnier and not really like the small wizard boy anyway.. 😅 just don't watch it with kids.
