"Emphasizing individual drama and internal politics is surprisingly effective, as is the decision to focus on the non-Lewis Hamilton / Mercedes drivers. Despite not knowing much about F1 coming in I felt pretty well-acquainted with each driver and team by the second season. That said, I'm not sure this template can sustain interest forever. I would like more focus on the strategic and technical elements of the race, although I can understand this might dumb down the series for F1 fans."

"The good: "world-building," which usually counts for very little with me, is very effective here. The classical ethical themes also add interest although they're well exhausted by season 3. The makeup! Persistent wounds that slowly heal over time! The bad: Of course the characters, dialogue, plot and camerawork are all pretty asinine. "

"I wish I'd seen this sooner; all I could think of was the onslaught of Manic Pixie Dream Girl films around the turn of the century."

"It's got enough funny bits, and the performances are good. The script is half-baked, like it was thrown together during shooting, which is astonishing for something with four writers and a decade of rewrites."

"If I ever meet anyone who's been through a Lord of the Flies or Battle Royale type experience, I'll try to be sympathetic to whatever psychological damage they've suffered. If I ever meet anyone who's been through Boys State, I'm walking away fast, hopefully with a crucifix in my pocket. Not their fault, but I can't risk giving them the benefit of the doubt. "
