Watch or Not
The show follows a proper order of introducing different emotional and character sophistications with a comical ease. The previous season focused more on Ashley’s intellectual journey to becoming a rocket scientist. This season, as the name suggests, follows the love interest of the genius.
To be fair, Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love is fits perfectly into the attributes of glossy sitcom, starring teens but aimed at tweens and populated with good looking teenagers who deliver fizzy one liners.
