There's a reason why these kinds of magical realism, opposites attract narratives have endured for so long, and why so many teens especially latch onto them so strongly.

Dash & Lily is neither clumsy nor cheap-looking. Thanks to energetic cinematography from Eric Treml and candid direction from the likes of Fred Savage and Pamela Romanowsky, the show's saccharine candy shell soon melts to reveal a richer emotional core.

As far as romantic comedies go, Dash & Lily doesn’t break the mold but it does make a lasting impact. And in terms of Christmas stories, it finds the right balance between celebrating the holiday and acknowledging that sometimes life is still just hard.

With its predictable arc and predilection for absurd coincidences, the show could easily cross over from comfortingly familiar to straight-up hacky. What keeps it on the right side of the line, for me at least, is the liveliness and authenticity of its contemporary New York.

Dash & Lily’s two leads are more than engaging enough to sell this unconventionally detached relationship.
