Everything Sucks! is the latest Netflix show, and while everyone is stuck in the 80s on Stranger Things, this show is all about the 90s.
It’s 1996 and the phattest movie is about to come out: The first in the new Star Wars trilogy.
Luke (Jahi Di’Allo Winston) is a high school freshman in Boring, Oregon, all ready to join the A/V club that seems to be failing. He quickly starts to fall for Kate Messner (Peyton Kennedy), a camera operator at the A/V club, and the Principal’s daughter.
With the help of friends Tyler and McQuaid, how will Luke handle his young love, while Kate faces her own troubles as the picked on girl at school. And when they all get in trouble with the drama club (with the great acting of Oliver and Emaline (Sydney Sweeney)), how will they turn it around and not have a miserable time in high school?
The kids are all great, but it’s the adults that push this show to a different level, with Principal Ken Messner (Patch Darragh, of The Path) and Luke’s Mom Sherry (Claudine Mboligikpelani Nako) leading the way.
Flashbacks to the 90s nostalgia, with Oasis’ Wonderwall, and Tori Amos, it’s a fun, light-hearted show, for all the 90s kids, and while it’s clearly aimed at teens, the show is awesome and gets a 9 out of 10.
