The show is interesting, definitely binge worthy. However, "interesting" does not necessarily equate to good. It is a situation you can see happening, well, unfortunately, it does happen more frequently than anyone would probably care to admit. The acting is good and cast correctly. However, the show does have it's problems and had the potential to be much stronger. First, the teacher makes some unrealistic and illogical mistakes. The way the affair was exposed was unbelievable. A teacher would not likely confide such an immense transgression to a colleague, let alone a colleague she barely knows. Would have made more sense for the student to tell or the friends to see them out. Then, after being exposed and knowing she is being investigated, she continues to carry on the affair. Pure stupidity. Another issue is the series feels rushed. With a 25 minute run time, why not stretch this to an hour and expand on the plot and character build? There were several scenes that could have been omitted and the focus shifted to a more interesting focus. Instead of seeing Eric party at school, I would have rather seen Claire explaining her story to the lawyer and seeing her sentenced. I would have also liked to see the relationship with her husband after Claire was exposed instead of just being told about it. Overall, it's worth a watch. However, it wasn't something I'm overly excited to tell all my friends to watch...

First off, I want to say that the people leaving one star reviews complaining about how this is glorifying statutory rape have missed the point. Shows like PLL and Riverdale- where they portray the teachers as great romantic interests who are genuinely good people- those are glorifying these relationships. This show does not paint the teacher in a positive light. It's very clear that this relationship is problematic; just because they don't villainize the teacher doesn't mean they're condoning her actions. No awful person is 100% evil, and that goes for this character as well. If you think the show is actually condoning the student teacher narrative, something is wrong with your perception.

Now, regarding the show itself- it starts off pretty great. The first three episodes are captivating and keep you wondering what's going to develop next. However, it steadily declines from there. I'd say that after episode 3 or 4, they sort of run out of material. The episodes drag on and there's only about 8 minutes worth of interesting content in the 20 minute time frame. Episode 7, which focuses solely on Eric, is dreadfully boring in particular because half the excitement is seeing the dynamic between Eric and the teacher. So should you watch it? I would say that if the subject matter doesn't bother you, give it a watch. The episodes are less than 30 minutes so it's not too much of an investment. The show isn't really groundbreaking in any way, it plays way too much into high school stereotypes, and it can be a bit repetitive (we don't need that many scenes of high school parties, they all look the same). BUT- the acting is great, the storyline is intriguing, and the characters are fleshed out which keeps you invested in them.

Lots of pearl clutching on this one. Lot's of moral panic and moralizing. But the topic is part of the human experience like everything else in popular entertainment. We watch murders and robberies on screen all the time and don't assume the makers are saying these things are okay or should be accepted in real life, This show should be given the same leeway.

This show follows a teacher and her student and their relationship, which starts getting inappropriate pretty quickly. It's well done, the acting is superb both actors showing the internal struggle they are having.

Worth watching, but not ground breaking in my opinion. The actors do deserve tremendous credit however. And the show deserves credit for not portraying these people as monsters, life is more subtle and complicated than that, and so far the show reflects that. (up to Ep 3)

This was a great series at first, then it had the chance to wrap it up in a real good way. And the way it ended was so pathetic. No spoilers, but you'll see for yourself. It went from a 7 stars series to a 3 star series.
