Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Sofia Bryant, and Richard Ellis go long on the most binge-worthy bits of their show

With angst and anger abound, I Am Not Okay With This never takes itself too seriously. There’s a bit of dark humor which I really enjoy, Lillis says.
Part of it is in the irony of Sydneys character. You see, even though shes experiencing the most awesome ride of discovering she has super powers, she could not care less. She decided to not think about that and think about the real troubles, which is high school, and having your crush, and thigh acne, and all that stuff, Lillis adds. Its not the typical superhero trope in which powers reveal themselves, and then the hero gets to work.
And part of it is in the script and its delivery. Lillis laughs every time she hears the way she says lessofafuck, and Ellis still gawks when he recalls reading the line in the finale: [Redacted]s fucking head explodes.
I Am Not Okay With This is a genuine good time, and definitely worth the two-and-a-half hour investment. The complete first season is streaming now on Netflix.
