The adults are as hilariously clueless as you’d dare hope, the kids fling zingers like they’ve been mainlining All About Eve, and the series’ unexpected heart actually answers the question, “What’s your damage?” In short, Heathers slays.
Provocative idea. ... But with plastic characters and off-brand nastiness, neo-Heathers is an inadvertent MAGA fever dream, so cynical about identity politics that it forgets to give anyone an identity. [9 Mar 2018, p.51]
Tiresome nasty camp cartoon homage to 1989's pitch-black cult comedy. [5 Mar - 18 Mar 2018, p.13]
Though the show's commentary on identity politics is meant to be sardonic, it's unclear for whom the jokes are meant. Heathers is ostensibly being pitched to young people, but it seems to despise the very demographic it's trying to attract. All of the teenagers are depicted as sociopaths, social climbers, or disingenuous activists.
