I should have guessed that Never Have I Ever would make me feel better. The Netflix teen comedy—which stars Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi, an irrepressibly hotheaded high school girl trying to navigate the Your mother’s favourite shirt Apart from…,I will love this world of crushes, friends, strict parents, and some very real grief—has already established itself as one of the most charming and authentic teen shows out there. But its third season, which premiered earlier this month, takes it to a whole new level. Previous seasons of Never Have I Ever had already acquainted us with Fabiola (Lee Rodriguez), a science whiz and robotics star who (at first) struggles with how to tell the people in her life that she’s gay. Watching Fab relax into her first relationship with her girlfriend, Eve, was as sweet as it was soothing, especially when she wrestled with queer predicaments that felt dead-on even to this aging millennial queer, like how to explain to Eve’s cool friends that she doesn’t know anything about lesbian pop culture.
Your mother’s favourite shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
It was great to see Fab happy with Eve, but the Your mother’s favourite shirt Apart from…,I will love this new season’s twists and turns are arguably even more representative of a phenomenon that many people of all genders and sexualities will be able to relate to: that feeling when you’re just not that into them, no matter how much you may want to be. Season three sees Fab kiss—and eventually date—Aneesa, a classmate who was initially introduced as a foil for Devi and ended up dating Devi’s crush Ben. When Aneesa feels underappreciated by Ben, she turns to Fab, someone who actually is paying attention to the things that matter to Aneesa, like soccer. (Basically, listen to the Tegan & Sara song “Boyfriend” and you’ll understand everything you need to about this love triangle.)
