Everything Sucks! is an American web series that is based in the 1990’s in a small town called Boring. The series revolves around a group of friends who are just starting high school and are already outcasts. The three friends decide to join the AV club at the school but tensions begin to rise between them and students in the drama club.
It is a true representation of what it can be like being a teenager and being at high school. Although the series is a short one, as it is made up of only ten episodes all just around half an hour long, it managed to deal with first kisses, the fear of not fitting in, learning about sexuality and bullying. I think the series is seriously good, it made me laugh, it made me sad and it was just a real feel good programme.

After finishing on a cliffhanger, it appears there will be a second series, and I hope there is because I cannot wait, I need answers! Watching the show managed to take me back to my childhood, with slow dial up connections, cassette tapes, videotapes, portable Walkmans, and a paper fortune teller. For those too young to know what this was, you’re missing out, it was so popular back in the day, pick colours and numbers and get a hidden fortune! I know, I know, the 90’s were so cool. Not only was the series storyline good, but also they had a pretty decent soundtrack to go with it. They had music from Oasis, Deep Blue Something, Tori Amos, Duran Duran, Weezer and Alanis Morissette amongst others. On IMDb the series gets 7.7 out of 10 and I agree with the high scoring, it’s brilliant.
