MINX: SEASON ONE
Starring: Ophelia Lovibond, Jake Johnson, Idara Victor, Jessica Lowe, Oscar Montoya, Lennon Parham, and Michael Angarano
Creator: Ellen Rapoport
Behind the groovy 70s sheen, bubbly personalities, and Jake Johnson’s affable magnetism, Minx delivers a sharp and funny (but not insistent) commentary on feminism, racism, and sexuality. For a show in its first season, it has a tremendous amount of confidence, which is aided by the cast’s stellar chemistry. Fair warning, Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond) is a tad unlikeable in the early episodes because of her buttoned-up, entitled naivete, but know that is just where her engaging character arc starts. Given that Minx was dropped on HBO Max somewhat unceremoniously (plus the sheer amount of dicks present), some might decide to skip it. Don’t do it.
