Who doesn’t like a good old romantic comedy? Whether you have someone to kiss under the mistletoe or you’re single all the way, Dash & Lily is a great series to fill your hearts with joy this Christmas.

Based on the young adult novel series Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, this eight-episode series centers on the eponymous teenagers who form mutual romantic feelings through a notebook that takes them on an adventure across New York City through the dares and messages they write to each other.

The plot of the series strays away from the usual formula of Christmas love stories with the way the story unfolds. It’s not entirely unpredictable, but there are several pleasant surprises you won’t see coming. The show also equally balances the good vibes from the festive holiday setting of the romantic story with the gravity and seriousness of the challenges that the characters will have to face along the way. All in all, Dash & Lily is a whimsical journey of discovering the wonders of life and love that is truly memorable to experience and watch.
