    At first the show does feel exactly like what might happen if the creator of a MTV dark comedy and the writers of a Tupac biopic teamed up together to make a show. It’s a combination that at first doesn’t really seem to click, but by the end of the season, On My Block does feel like a world unto itself, a universe with its own rules and logic.

    Earnest, sometimes ungainly, but always funny and appealing.

    On My Block suffers from some stiff writing and amateur performances, but it possess a charm that's hard to resist. Perhaps it's because nothing earth-shattering happens here, and for a story that takes place in the hood, it's a refreshing turnabout.

    As all-over-the-place as On My Block is in tone, I have to acknowledge that the 10-episode first season is reasonably carefully planned out in terms of weaving the disparate storylines toward a finale that certainly will get people talking, or it will get people talking if anybody watches the series at all.

    On My Block has the off-center charm and quirky comic rhythms Ms. Iungerich is known for, but it has a problem that’s tied to its setting. ... The shifts from football game high jinks or a character’s apple-bong-toking abuelita to the question of whether to shoot another teenager in the head are disconcerting, to say the least.

This show is on i want to see thrive, it has real life issues put into a comedic relief for everyone of all ages to enjoy. This show not only is about the real coming up of teenagers but also the gangs and the violence that kids should be aware of. I managed to stay up until 4 AM binge watching this entire show because i couldn't wait until morning to finish it. I felt like hell in my 8 am class but it was worth it. I honestly pray this show gets another season so i can be content with my life knowing what happens to Ruben. So with all this being said i am sending my prayers out to the Netflix crew to let these talented actors and actress make this show a smash! Expand

Watched one episode and got hooked and finished the season in a couple of days. Being from outside of the US the LA ghetto's have always intrigued me. This show reminds me a lot of the movie "Dope" from 2015 with the humor, drama and romance. The cast is great and have excellent chemistry. And oh boy the ending gave me chills. Expand
