Victor is a new student at Creekwood High School on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation. When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school.
This is better than the movie Love, Simon but not by much. It could take the place of any generically wholesome and wholesomely generic teenage TV series, except the gimmick of this show is that the lead character is gay. From a cultural / sociopolitical perspective, there's value in having such a mainstream depiction of homosexuality; but that is the only sense in which Love, Victor makes progress. From an artistic perspective, Love, Victor is staid, timid, and, thus, boring.
