"Okay" is a small, comforting slice of television that you can finish in an afternoon and not feel bad about how much time you've spent on the couch. Sydney may not be OK with her current situation, but I'm more than OK letting her into my life.

Considering that I Am Not Okay with This hits far more often than it misses, if a clunky superpower plotline is what it takes to get me another season with these characters, then I guess I am okay with that after all.

Like Pretty in Pink, I Am Not Okay With This even ends with its Ringwald, Lillis’s Syd, going to the big dance, reconciling with her geeky but also cool as hell best guy friend, and nearly getting the climactic kiss from Dina that Andie gets from Blaine. It stops short of that because, again, this story isn’t over (seemingly), and also because such an ending would be far too pat for a series about a girl with telekinetic superpowers.

Its deliberately washed-out palette and retro aesthetic, for example, recall the calibrated vibe of “Sex Education,” while its mysterious paranormal activity in a Rust Belt town feels like a stray “Stranger Things” subplot.
