Sophia Lillis (best known for the It movies) plays an awkward teenager with burgeoning telekinetic powers. Not only does she have to deal with this shocking and confusing discovery, she has the usual misfit issues at school, including a crush on her best friend. For character humor, there’s the mildly amusing neighborhood boy (Wyatt Oleff, also from the Its), who dresses in cool vintage and takes a liking to her. In many ways, this is a typical teen drama. Even with the supernatural twist, the writing isn’t especially clever or original. The performances are sufficiently enjoyable and the story takes its time to develop. Still, the special effects are pretty cool and the final splash sets the show up for a promising season 2 (not yet announced). Interesting side note, the actors are playing characters their approximate age (as opposed to being in their mid-20s, like the ones on Outer Banks and so many other TV shows).

A Netflix series of seven 19-25 minute episodes.

 

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)
