(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Series: Never Have I Ever

Where You Can Stream It: Netflix

The Pitch: Loosely inspired by creator Mindy Kaling‘s childhood growing up in a Massachusetts suburb, Never Have I Ever is a high school romantic-comedy that follows cocky 15-year-old Devi Vishwakumar (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) as she recovers from her father’s death and an unexplained bout of paralysis by chasing after the hottest boy at school.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: A young woman shoves down her expanding feelings of grief by throwing herself into a series of bad life decisions that alienate the people around her, while navigating a fractured family dynamic. But enough about Fleabag. Yes, the comparisons between Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s raunchy, incisive Emmy-winning series and Mindy Kaling’s high school coming-of-age comedy may seem odd, but just like FleabagNever Have I Ever is an unexpectedly heart-wrenching delight. Kaling’s best TV series yet, Never Have I Ever is a disarmingly sincere exploration of grief and a snapshot of the immigrant experience nestled within a sweet, hysterical teen rom-com.

four weddings and a funeral trailer
