Take this One Of Us Is Lying Quiz to find out which character you are. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.

One of Us Is Lying by Peacock is a little bit Breakfast Club, a little bit Gossip Girl, a little bit Pretty Little Liars, and a whole lot aware that it’s building on tropes and stereotypes that came before it — characters frequently reference other shows, movies, and genres, including horror and true crime. But recognizing the clichés it trades in isn’t the same as transcending them, and the result of all this mingling is a teen murder mystery series that’s consistently watchable but never quite great.

Based on Karen McManus’s novel, the drama begins on the first day of school with a tantalizing post on About THAT — a blog that spills all the school’s dirtiest secrets and is run by misanthropic outcast Simon (Mark McKenna) — promising imminent reveals on four unnamed students. Simon, on the other hand, ends up in detention before he can deliver. And before his detention is over, he’s dead of an allergic reaction in what appears to be a homicide, according to the cops.

Editor’s Picks

Suspicion quickly falls on the four students who were with him when he died, each of whom harbors a secret that has the potential to derail their future, and each of whom had reason to fear their secrets would be revealed in Simon’s next missive. Bronwyn (Marianly Tejada), the straight-A student who may not be as pure as she appears; Cooper (Chibuikem Uche), the star baseball player who is still in the closet; Addy (Annalisa Cochrane), the cheerleader who is cheating on her long-term boyfriend; and Nate (Cooper van Grootel), the small-time drug dealer whose next offense could land him in prison.

Despite the splashy intrigue implied by the premise, One of Us Is Lying’s secret weapon is more understated. Daro Madrona (Elite) has a firm grasp on the pacing of the murder mystery, doling out twists and clues at a steady enough clip to keep a viewer’s attention from wandering too far — but slowly enough that each new revelation has time to sink in. The biggest bombshells (usually in the form of a new About THAT post from whatever anonymous creeper has taken over the account since Simon’s death) are used sparingly and tend to scramble the playing field just as we or the characters are about to get too comfortable.

Meanwhile, the various characters’ ever-shifting friendships, feuds, and romances rely on the teen drama truism that no one in high school is exactly the social stereotype they appear to be. Predictably, Simon’s death forces the four survivors together, and predictably, they come to understand one another even better than their own friends and family do. The show’s most touching scenes frequently feature these cross-clique connections, such as Addy teasing Nate about his obvious puppy-dog crush on Bronwyn, or Cooper warming up to Nate after realizing their home lives aren’t as dissimilar as they’d assumed.

About the quiz

What One of Us Is Lying lacks is a unique spark that distinguishes it from the slew of other murder mysteries and teen dramas out there — some subversion or deepening of the formulas it trades in, some jagged edges to break up all its slick competence. Simon complains in the first episode that Bayview High is a total cliche: “It’s like everyone’s here to audition for the reboot of a John Hughes movie.” The series has yet to shake that feeling after the first three episodes were sent to critics (out of a total of eight). The characters remain archetypes rather than living, breathing people. If there is any profound insight to be found in Simon’s death or everything that has followed, the series has yet to reveal it.

The show is almost always pitched at a sour, dour tone, with few moments of levity or raw pain. (One unexpectedly endearing exception is Nate’s conversations with his pet iguana.) Please give us more of that.) The colors are lovely but muted, as if they’ve been through an especially harsh Instagram filter, and the performances are similarly restrained. These artistic choices lend One of Us Is Lying an artificiality that, to be fair, seems appropriate for a show about people desperately trying to suppress unsavory truths about themselves. However, they also keep the show’s emotions at bay.
