Everything Sucks!: Season 1 Reviews

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.

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.

"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 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
The show's primary characteristic, which might reflect American provenance, Netflix roots, or both, is its manufactured quality.
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.
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 15, 2018
It's not perfect, but it's a pleasurable experience just spending time with these young people, especially those played by the super-talented leads, Jahi Winston and Peyton Kennedy.
February 14, 2018
The influences are too obvious, hurting the originality.
February 14, 2018
Even if it takes a while for audiences to catch on, Everything Sucks! matches well enough with the rest of the streaming service's ecosystem: It is its own thing, just like many of the other Netflix shows we're already binging.
February 14, 2018
Pleasant surprise: Everything Sucks! has one of the best new characters on television.

Once in a while, a show finds its bearings in real time, which makes sticking with it worth the ride. That's the case with Everything Sucks!

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.
February 14, 2018
"Everything Sucks!" may not be original, but it has a beating heart, a sense of humor, and at least one distinct theme.
