Review: Friends From College; Created by Francesca Delbanco and Nicholas Stoller; Netflix

Friends From College (Television Series); Created by Francesca Delbanco and Nicholas Stoller; Netflix; First episode date: July 14, 2017

Television Shorts


Somewhere between episodes 4 and 6 of the first of two seasons, the show falls from Excellent to "just" Great. Friends From College takes two serious topics: Infidelity and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) as the springboard for a Dramedy involving a group of people who have been friends for about 20 years.

On the one hand, the relationships simply can be viewed as being toxic. Friends From College shows us the other hand in trying to convince us the friendships are just flawed but representative of long-term friendships, relationships and marriages.

Only two seasons, with eight (8) episodes each.

Recommendation: HIGH
