As a fairly privileged Ivy-League-educated millennial living in New York, I totally get where this show is going. And sometimes it's AMAZING and totally encapsulates what I perceive to be our collective experience as a demographic. But sometimes it's just too cringey in its characterizations, which sure, are part of what it's going for, but which also don't feel real even in a "truth is stranger than fiction" way.
Maybe this will come in later seasons, but the show doesn't have a working, driven, successful character. It doesn't even have to be a main character, just someone who maybe has a real job, is in their early 20s, who has challenges (even if they're not explored by the show) that resemble those faced by someone who is actually directly in a position to "be successful" or (god forbid) earn a living. There are no contemporary foils to the characters the show follows that get an iota of screen time.
That said, liked the show. Will probably watch season 2.
