People love the 60s celebrate the 70s and claim the 80s is unforgettable. But the decade that really saw all the evolution was the nineties. Very few series or films have used that time frame – but Netflix’s Everything Sucks does just that. Here’s our initial review of the series, that launched today on Netflix.
What’s Wow: The series strikes an emotional chord with the audiences right off the bat, with the awkward children and the adults who are combating a different set of problems. Yes, the nineties have a retro feel. What’s more, this one has a warm, embracing feel that will only increase as the audiences begin investing in the characters. The concept of an A/V Club is right into nerd zone and it allows the show makers to create so much around retro electronic products – the series has already shown what seems to be a Walkman and of course, smut magazines. The performances, at least in the initials seasons are good – and there will be fan favourites for this as the series progresses.
What’s Blah: It’s too early to point out anything wrong with the series.
Parting Shot: A good addition to Netflix’s inventory.
