Kate and Luke's storylines reach a more satisfying end by episode 10, it just takes Everything Sucks! a little too long to figure out what it wants.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

But, like a certain mail-order music club did, it promises much but doesn't really deliver what you want.

Everything Sucks! feels like it was made by aliens whose spaceship stopped receiving NBC in 1997 and have been just rewatching after school specials ever since.

"Everything Sucks" is "Stranger Things" with everything unique sucked out of it. And with everything there is to watch now, why bother going back to the dullest days of high school?
February 7, 2018
Even within the general constraints of "high school romp," who's going to watch this show, when it means looking away from any of today's far more outrageous options?
February 16, 2018
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.

This upbeat nostalgia party is elevated by one superb performance, but otherwise suffers from growing pains.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 25, 2018
The dream of the 90s is alive in this series in the worst possible way.
February 15, 2018
The show's primary characteristic, which might reflect American provenance, Netflix roots, or both, is its manufactured quality.
February 15, 2018
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.
February 14, 2018
The influences are too obvious, hurting the originality.
February 14, 2018
When you title a show "Everything Sucks!" it can be viewed as an act of defiance or truth in advertising. Netflix's new dramedy manages both in this sludge of teen angst.
Full Review | Original Score: C
February 16, 2018
That may be the series biggest fault-it's rather boring. Not funny enough to be a comedy. Not dramatic enough to be a drama.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.8/10
August 10, 2018
Everything Sucks! is a delightful, heartfelt, and nostalgic trip to 1996's.
July 6, 2018
The series is situated in an institute in the 90s and it's adorable. [Full Review in Spanish]

There are moments the nostalgia, laid-on thick as it is, makes us melt.
March 1, 2018
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.
February 14, 2018
...full of first-relationship drama, coming-out drama, over-dramatic drama students - basically, all the drama you remember from high school and could want from a teen show.
February 14, 2018
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.
March 30, 2018
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.
