I feel bad for broadcast television and cable TV, because all the good stuff seems to be going to streaming lately.
Dash & Lily is a 2020 8-episode teen-angst romantic comedy on Netflix. It is rated TV-PG and is appropriate for all ages.
The Concept. The concept is pretty cool and one that hasn't been done to death. A girl leaves a diary with a literary treasure hunt for some boy to find and find her. They use the diary to write back and forth and create dares to get each other out of their comfort zone while never meeting in person.
The Characters. The characters are very likable and very relatable with realistic concerns and challenges and just enough zaniness to make them fun.
The Pace. This series moves along at a great pace.
The Journey. A lot of shows talk about a journey and make a big deal about the participants' journey, but this show actually has a journey worth following alone and enjoyable to watch.
The BadThe Wrap up at the end. This series doesn't follow the normal cliches, which is nice, until the very end when everything is wrapped up, even things you don't really care about. It was just a little too tidy and felt forced.
What I Would Like to Have Seen
I was satisfied.
