    I created a Metacritic account five minutes ago for literally no reason other than attempting to warn people away from this show. It is one of the worst things I have watched this year.

    I created a Metacritic account five minutes ago for literally no reason other than attempting to warn people away from this show. It is one of the worst things I have watched this year.
    I would not categorize it as a dark comedy, but rather a humorless regular comedy, offering what is essentially a watered down, politically correct copy of tropes from the original movie in attempt to be edgy.
    The mood swings all over the place: sometimes it is the same borderline absurdism from the film, sometimes it is a regular high school drama. It flips between realism and surrealism with no apparent rhyme or reason, which left me feeling confused and disoriented as to what it is that I was supposed to be watching.
    The show attempted to relate to young people in the same cringe-inducing format that is becoming all-too common. Every other scene references some form of social media and hot phrases include "followers" "likes" "hashtag" and "emoji."
    The entire experience thing felt ham-fisted.
    For example, rather than portray minority groups in a way as to humanize them and help heal rifts in our society, the show forced a grotesque depiction of the LGBT community in a way that almost made it feel like a satire. Rather than maturely address social issues like body image and women's rights, the show used cliche rhetoric and annoying buzzwords.

    And don't even get me started on the attempted throwbacks to the film. It was just sad.

    It is thrilling, with wit as gentle as a chainsaw. The network has toned down the finale by cutting the prom-bombing climax, and replacing it with nothing much. The show fizzles in the home stretch, but it is easy to imagine a showrunner’s cut of “Heathers” that fills it out as a pop-surrealist masterpiece. ... The show is painfully sharp in its portrayal of the way grief is performed on social media and I.R.L. It is similarly brutal in its lampooning of national deformities.

    Heathers is hardly the first 30-year-old movie to receive a modern reboot, but it's hard to think of a more misguided re-conception, one that has updated the premise -- in a clumsy attempt to be provocative -- in wholly muddled and off-putting ways.

    It wasn't worth salvaging what remains a repugnant, mean-spirited attempt at satire that uses smug wokeness as a hall pass to play into every offensive stereotype imaginable.
