Everything Sucks! is a delightful, heartfelt, and nostalgic trip to 1996's.

The series is situated in an institute in the 90s and it's adorable. [Full Review in Spanish]

Everything Sucks! is a refreshing and positive look at high school life. It's not what the era of Peak TV has been drawn to of late, but it's what we need for our hearts and our minds to survive the day-to-day turmoil of life.

Yes, this is another sentimental coming-of-age comedy-drama but it's one that does become quite involving and affecting, thanks in large part to an achingly vulnerable performance by Canadian youngster Peyton Kennedy.

I'm so glad I kept watching, though. Because while much of the show is uneven and a bit of a mess, it eventually stumbles into something wonderful.

However awkward the constant flood of time-worn memes and outdated lingo may seem in the moment, the faux-nostalgic eventually blurs into a constant undercurrent and highlights poignant moments by its absence.

While "Everything Sucks!" is an ensemble show with a lot of characters and storylines, it's at its best when it focuses on Kate.

Sweet, sensitive, authentic '90s-set teen drama is a winner.

There's a touch of Glee with the revelation that the ham-fisted AV society is in bitter rivalry with the goth-tinged drama club.

What follows is the predictable if amusingly well-executed humor of a nerd suitor trying to punch above his romantic weight ... But there's also a poignant streak.

It doesn't have the stickiness, energy and obsession-making bite Stranger Things did. Everything Sucks is just kind of pleasant. It's got the beginnings of something great, which will hopefully emerge down the track if it gets a second season.

When the latter half of the season eases up on the '90s nostalgia onslaught to follow a group of misfits banding together to make a sci-fi B movie, it becomes far more focused and fun almost immediately.

Everything Sucks! definitely doesn't suck, but it's only occasionally pretty good.
February 16, 2018
What does work is awesome...The portrayal, basically, is of a Darwinian mosh pit, into which young people with little in common besides puberty have to learn to surf or crash. Or else be eaten, figuratively, by other members of their species.
February 16, 2018
Mercifully, it's rarely hokey, and the emotional plot developments are often unexpected...perhaps, after these growing pains even out, we'll be left with a show as endearing as it deserves to be.

Sucks! has charm and will probably do what it exists to do in a context such as Netflix, which is to provide you with an easy, snackable show that can be binged without making you think too much about what you're watching.
February 16, 2018
... part of this new Netflix show's charm is the way it somehow, rather scrappily, finds something winning in all its clutter.
February 15, 2018
This show has an innate understanding of how the emotions first encountered in childhood still percolate beneath the surface long after we've officially grown up.
February 15, 2018
Worth seeing for breakout star Peyton Kennedy's portrayal of coming out while coming of age.
February 15, 2018
It's perhaps too much baggage to call anything "My So-Called Life for a new generation," but at its best, Everything Sucks! possesses the same kind of melancholy charms.
