A 90s-themed TV show has just been put on Netflix and we are so excited.
The show is called, Everything Sucks!, and it’s supposed to perfectly represent being a teenager in the 90s.
The show is set in 1996, in a town called Boring, Oregon, which is actually a real town by the way. It is a comedy that follows the lives of high school freshman, including all of our favorite things about the 90s.
Watching the trailer alone gave me instant nostalgia. The main characters in the show are in the AV Club and Drama Club and are made to work together on a low-budget movie project, throughout the season.
The funniest thing about this show is that for the most part, the lead actors in the show weren’t even alive in the 90s.
In an interview with Entertainment News, Peyton Kennedy and Jahi Winston, who are both actors in the show, talked about what they had to do to study for their roles. They talked about watching shows and movie that were legitimately from the 90s, as well as, studying fashion and music.
When I see this show, I can’t help but think of Freaks and Geeks. This show was the same idea except that it was made in the late 90s and was based off of teens in the 80s. This show was amazing and I will never get over that it was canceled after one season.
So, will Everything Sucks! be the same? Netflix has just put on the entire first season, which is 10 half-hour episodes. So, hopefully it will last longer than Freaks and Geeks did.
No matter what happens with it, I am very excited to binge-watch it all in one night. Obviously, this will be a huge let down if it sucks, but so far I have heard good things so, I am staying positive. Even if it’s bad, I am just glad they have finally made a show that relates to our teen years.
