The Summer I Turned Pretty” returns for its second season on Amazon Prime Video. Created by Jenny Han and starring Lola Tung and Christopher Briney among others.

You know those teenage series that are a bit cheesy and can only be appreciated and understood if you’re a teenager? “The Summer I Turned Pretty” is one of those series vying for the crown in the realm of sensitive shows.

And it’s well on its way to achieving that, even though it seemed challenging.

About the series

Let me give you an example to give you an idea. The main character confesses to the love interest (who happens to be blond) that she kissed another guy. His response is that it’s all his fault, they can still be together, and she’s lovely.

The series continues like that, more or less, with some ups and downs of supposed reality. However, don’t expect too much from this teenage drama where the main characters mature season by season alongside the audience, who are mostly within that age range.

It has a clearly TV-like format, with charming and light-hearted characters who seem too fragile, sensitive, and delightful to exist in the real world. But movies and TV are not about neorealism, and Amazon Prime Video offers us this charming and tender series that is bound to captivate even the most cynical spirits and the Mr. Scrooge that some of us become as we age.

Let your feelings run wild and get caught up in the innocence, youthful passion, and shyness of this series and its more than charming protagonists.

(I apologize if I went a bit overboard with the “irony mode” button).
