    Don't mind the low ratings and the critics. Trust me, Heathers is a superb black comedy with lots of OMG! moments. Enjoy it for its' satire not political correctness. It's somewhat like insatiable, but better and more violent.

    EDIT: I just read some articles on how they are changing the show for US airings - they are editing the last two episode and REMOVING THE ENTIRE FINALE. Which of course is important for any story, but even more so on how this subverts the original. With a never-to-be-finished cliffhanger ending in its place, this will totally gut the series and ruin the entire ting.

    The only thing that prevents me from giving this a 10 is James Scully's performance as JD. One of the worst actors in a lead role I've seen in a recent memory and obviously pales in comparison to Christian Slater. Other than that, this show takes the amazing movie and modernizes it, lovingly pays homage to it, and just really shows off some great writer tricks.

    I would absolutely suggest watching the movie first, then immediately diving into the show to fully appreciate all the ways the writer's took every memorable line from movie and adapted it. Some are identical, some change context, some are completely changed through a modern lens. The way the show references Moby Dick is amazing. And the twists and swerves last from the end of the very first episode all the way through the finale, as you can never be sure exactly what direction they're going.

    People hating on this show because they think it advocates for the other side are just denying themselves and others the very best of exactly what they want. The balance of "sides" here is almost as good as South Park's, you just have to be aware enough to see both of them.

    About as recommended as a show can be.

    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.
