Neon 2023 / A modest, likable underdog comedy set in a world that's easy to slide into


Neon’s story of young millennials hustling to make their dreams come true can feel familiar, and it might approach some of its conflicts too lightly for its own good (at least in the first couple episodes watched for this review). But even if it isn’t exactly raucously funny yet, it’s got a cool, confident foundation of charming characters and fun music to make the episodes go down smooth. Much of the comedy here comes from these people faking it till they hopefully make it, until it becomes plainly obvious that entire industries really do operate on lots of coordinated luck and loophole exploitation. Again, it might not be the most novel insight, but it’s delivered here in a stylish way.
