The ending of the first season is a big twist. Although there were lots of fun kept the show moving as a great teen comedy. The portrayal of Indian culture in America and white people interacting with it was perfect. The cultural shock was also showed. Moreover, one’s own identity is nothing to be ashamed of was in the centre. The was season 1 ended , seemed like season 2 will be full of surprises. Even though most the cast were all new faces but they did great playing all the roles. This Netflix show is worth a shot.
