Aussie boy's thoughts

Alexa & Katie is the perfect definition of a dramedy; whilst dealing with friendships and cancer, it’s absolutely hysterically hilarious. This series feels like the kind of sitcom material nobody comes up with anymore. The constant jokes are accompanied by brilliant audience laughs in the background, and the entire story is completely entertaining. There’s really nothing it could’ve done better to engage and delight kids, teens and adults.
