On paper, Hulu's In My Skin is a typical coming of age drama, full of sly observations about the difficulties of high school and painful reminders of how cruel teenagers can be to one another. Yet, though this series does include both those things in spades, its dark atmosphere, complex heroine, and dedication to flouting expectations of what a teen comedy should be and do ultimately turn the show into something entirely different.
