Spoiler-Free Review of “Fakes” on Netflix: A Blast to Binge-Watch

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“All good things come to an end…”

Fakes premiered on September 2nd 2022 on Netflix. There are ten episodes in total that are all available to stream now. The Canadian comedy series stars Jennifer Tong, Emilija Baranac, and Richard Harmon. Each episode is approximately 22-26 minutes.

Best friends, Zoe and Becca, start their own fake ID empire, but things get complicated when their life of crime stumbles out of control.

Here is the trailer:

Fakes is very much Booksmart meets Teenage Bounty Hunters with a flair of its own, but does it do enough to become your next worthy binge-watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

A fun concept with super short episodes.

I personally really liked the premise for this one. It really gave off some Teenage Bounty Hunter vibes in a good way. I had so much fun watching this and it was very easy to binge-watch with the shorter episodes.

The soundtrack was awesome and the main characters were likable for the most part. I also liked how the series did episodes from different perspectives to give this show a unique voice of its own.

Richard Harmon is the best part of the show!

I’m already a huge fan of his from The 100, but he really gave this series a much needed edge. He is hilarious, but he also had some deeper layers, which I appreciated. He is a scene stealer for sure!

The Cons:

Starts off a little unsure of itself.

The first two episodes were a little iffy for me. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep tuning in, but I was hooked by the time I got to episode three. The series really found its voice then and I also started to connect to all of the characters a lot more at this point. Not all of the humor landed, but there were enough entertaining moments to enjoy.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!!!

This was a super fun watch with great characters and a really cool concept that I thoroughly enjoyed. If you’re looking for something light and fun to shake things up, you’re in the right place.
