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.

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?

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

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.

It has some good ideas, but it is diluted in a package that does not do the show justice. [Full Review in Spanish]

This comedy is wonderfully-realized and geniunely heartfelt.

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.

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.
March 1, 2018
Often less laugh-out-loud funny than aw-shucks sweet, the show delivers comedy and pathos of a breezy, easygoing sort. It has some blind spots, but its action is layered with life lessons that are resonant.

However awkward the constant flood of time-worn memes and outdated lingo may seem in the moment, the faux-nostalgic eventually blurs into a constant undercurrent and highlights poignant moments by its absence.

The dream of the 90s is alive in this series in the worst possible way.
February 22, 2018
While "Everything Sucks!" is an ensemble show with a lot of characters and storylines, it's at its best when it focuses on Kate.
February 22, 2018
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.

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.
