4. It Normalizes Asking for Help

Never Have I Ever shows going to therapy for the brave, empowering act it is—and Devi's therapist is played by the incomparably hilarious and lovable Niecy Nash! It also shows characters of all age ranges dealing with different issues asking for help, whether it be through a therapist, a parent or a friend. It can be overwhelming to know how to ask for help, and each character on this show leads by example—even if it takes them a little bit to figure it out.

5. It Makes you Feel Less Alone

So often on TV, we're faced with seemingly perfect people, and it can be tough as a viewer to learn how to separate entertainment from reality. This show has a cast of tremendously endearing, lovable, flawed characters. No one is perfect and they all make mistakes (sometimes in hilariously cringe-worthy ways!), but they also show we're all capable of growth. The show grapples with a variety of different topics, including grief, eating disorders, feminism, coming out, romance and more. No matter what you're going through, this show will pull you into a hug and make you feel less alone.
