In a debut season that eventually frames itself within the shaky alliance between the dweebs of Boring High's A.V. club and the self-styled outsiders of the drama club, there's a lot to Everything Sucks! that never gels.
Unfortunately, "Everything Sucks!" is a lesson in what happens when you get the details right (the clothes, the playlists, the slang, the hairstyles, the props) but then squander them on a story that feels decidedly stiff and half-finished.
Is Everything Sucks! suddenly going to reinvent the genre for Netflix and shed new light on high school dwellings? No. But is it an enjoyable enough use of your time? Yes, so long as you have no problems with denim or CD players.
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.
