I agree that one thing that makes the show great is is the depth of so many of the side characters. Lily is awkward and weird but she doesn't seem to be upset by her eccentricity. I like how she can be both empathetic and bluntly honest and the other characters end up kind of liking / respecting her. Compare Lily here to the fat chick Lola on Big Mouth who is just supposed to be disgusting and mean.
I liked the little foray into the mean girls clique, but I'm surprised Ruby wasn't a bit more reformed by the last episode.
Overall i love the casting in that everyone is compelling to watch. However, I fully expected Ola to be 5 years older than Otis. She is lovely but so much more self-assured and confident than everyone at the school. She looked more destined for the big sister role than the love interest.
I liked the actor playing Adam, but he also looked way too physically developed for the role, not that I minded when in the scenes he was barely clothed.
I lost a lot of sleep because once I got to episode 6 I couldn't stop.
Agree that I love how the story line with Eric's dad played out and the way the church was portrayed as actually helping Eric find himself.
