Watched with my 12yo and went in thinking I would rather put toothpicks in my eyeballs, BUT it was actually good. And I appreciated the care they took with issues of consent for a teen show.

This show is ridiculously unrealistic, but tbh I don't even care. It's obvious that it's not supposed to be the most serious show ever, so I'm totally fine with it being completely over the top.

The main actors are very easy on they eyes, and are doing a pretty decent job with their acting (nothing outstanding of course).

The actors are way too old for the roles they are playing, until Sarah said she was only 16, I wasn't really sure what age they were supposed to be. But whatever, that's nothing new. Casting of age approproate actors is super hard, so I can't deduct any points for that really.

I am not completely finished yet, but so far it's fun, fast paces, enjoyable.

Edit: After finishing the show I CAN'T WAIT for season 2. It got SO much better with each episode, and honestly, at the end this felt like a really high quality production, and it's a really good setup for a potential second season. What impressed me the most is how well the dialogie was written, it was really believable. If you can ignore the fact that they don't look like 16 at all, they definitely act like a bunch of stupid 16 year olds. Netflix, you've done it again!

I like this show, but it can be very frustrating to watch at times. The acting is decent, but as many others have already pointed out, the casting is a bit ridiculous. The lead actor, who is playing a 16 year old, is nearly 30. He doesn't look even remotely like a 16 year old. All the actors playing teenagers are far too old for the roles they have been cast to play and it ruins the immersion for me somewhat. Is it really so hard to find decent actors that at least look the age of the part they are playing?

But that's hardly the main issue. The story at a high level is good, but the details is where this show falls apart. All of the drama and tension is created by characters doing stupid things. The stupidity ranges from mild, to unbelievably dense, but that's always what is driving the drama. It's hard to find characters likeable when they continuously do stupid things and never learn or grow.

And it's not just the teenagers that are stupid. None of the cops follow procedure, because if they did the story wouldn't happen. Whenever a character does something clever, it has to be ruined by someone doing something incredibly stupid, because again, then the story wouldn't happen. I wish the writers would spend a bit more time trying to come up with different ways to push the story forward, maybe by having the antagonists be clever, rather than the heroes being stupid.

I've finished season 2 now, and I don't regret watching it. It's good enough, but it could have been a lot better.

This series has teenage kids, in a van, solving mysteries in a swampy, spooky landscape. The boys are handsome, the girls are cute. The only thing missing is a dog.

Like you, I've been holed up binge watching Nexflix and Prime. I've watched everything under the sun. This had just come out on Netflix and I started watching it. I never stopped. It is a fun and enjoyable show. The casting is extraordinary...every actor hits it out of the park. The story moves along at an engaging pace to the end, yet looking back, every episode could stand as a one off...on it's own. It's a remarkable accomplishment and kudos to the writers. It's hard to categorize the genre. It's rated m, but no nudity or gore. I see no reason why a 13 year old couldn't watch it. It's funny, has many mini adventures, many misadventures, romance, shipwrecks, storms, fires, gunshots, keggers, jail, boys save girls, girls save boys, parents are devil's, parents are angel's, treasure maps ...and the show has fun doing all of it. Perfect for a quarantine.

I'm 73 and my husband and l loved it! Well played by all the actors. Great story line. I hope that there will be another season.

If Into The Blue had a baby with The O.C. and that baby had an affair with the baby of the Goonies and National Treasure, this is your type of show. I really couldn't care less about kid acting, the story is fun and always had my attention. Another season would be great!

I found the first season interesting, with a unique plot, reasonably good action, eye candy, strong performances, and appealing, colorful cinematography... so, despite the fact that there were some annoying plot elements, I decided once I finished with that first season that I'd go ahead and watch the second when it was released (which explains why I gave this show 4 stars instead of 1).

Well, boy, do I regret that decision. I honestly don't know if I've ever felt more frustrated watching a television show in my life. The entire plot of this second season was painfully predictable, driven by ridiculous levels of bad luck, unrealistic, unbelievable events, and profound, consistent stupidity on the part of the main characters. I found my voice hoarse from yelling angrily at the TV and my forehead stinging from repeated forceful facepalms over the course of this dumpster fire of a season.

After slogging all the way through, hoping that things would turn around and I'd end up being pleasantly surprised, the wrap-up turned out to be so thoroughly unsatisfying, I sat there, stunned, as credits rolled on the last episode, thinking "why the h*ll did I just spend so much of my time watching this garbage?" No offense to the actors -- they did well with what they were given -- but the writing was simply atrocious from start to finish. And, of course, the writers had the audacity to throw in that last second bait for the third season. Yeah, no thanks, I won't be watching anymore. If I wanted to feel that frustrated and upset while watching television, I'd just turn on the news.

I remember the first season as being a generally fun, rich kids vs. Poor kids, teen drama/adventure/treasure hunt. The biggest downsides were the overly old cast and quite a few cringe-worthy situations and choices. Like a lot of "teen" shows, it would have been better cast with actual teens (or just have them be in college instead of high school), but it seems typical to cast 27 year old guys as 17 year olds in grade 11 these days.

Unfortunately the second season ramps up the stupidity to comical levels. It is literally the definition of a "comedy of errors": an event or series of events made ridiculous by the number of errors that were made throughout. Middle schoolers will still like it, as will people who can completely turn off their brains (or have none to begin with). Really basic things like travelling times and distances, the weight of $500 million in gold, and recovery time after surgery to repair a gunshot wound to the gut, plus the incredible number of stupid things the main characters do, make it beyond frustrating to watch. I'll finish it because the overarching treasure hunting plot is kind of fun, but it's definitely at the "so bad it's good" stage now, at best.

Could have been great with better writing.

Never have I seen so much trashy and predictable directing. Anything that can go bad. DOES!! Straight trash directing !!
