Season 1 of "Everything Sucks!," a new Netflix original released on Feb. 16, places the audience in the world of the 90s. Despite it being 1996, characters participate in love, hate, sexuality, cliches, and awkward situations. People—old or young—can relate to and laugh at awkwardness, conflict, and love that Season 1 presents.

Set in Boring, Oregon, "Everything Sucks!" is anything but. Centered around the rivalry between A/V and Theater Club, Boring High School is filled to the brim with outrageous and comedic outbursts from characters. High schoolers are the main characters in the series, but the parents also give Comedic Relief during their adventures.

The High Schoolers

Emaline and Oliver—two theater kids who demand an audience 24/7—are portrayed as the antagonists through their consistent gossip spreading, “tattle-tale” offenses, and pranks against the A/V club.

However, A/V club members Luke and Kate initiated a war between the two clubs after “accidentally” pulling a fire alarm that set off sprinklers—ruining the set of Theater Club’s fall production. With the set for Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya drenched, the play was canceled.

In order to stop the constant prank phone calls and tormenting from Theater Club, Luke and Kate propose they make a movie and screen it on campus instead. Ultimately, a new and strong bond is created between the clubs after the stress and pressures of creating the alien invasion movie.

The plot of "Everything Sucks!" is engaging, but the actors who play these characters often fall short. The actress Peyton Kennedy’s performance resembles that of Kristen Stewart—emotionless expressions. Despite Kennedy’s bland approach, it gives the character Kate a mysterious aura that accompanies her inner confusion regarding her sexual preference.

Other actors and actresses exhibit a sort of inexperience but an inexperience that translates to the world presented in the series.

The Parents

Principal and father of Kate, Ken Messner falls in love with Luke’s mother, Sherry O'Neil. This relationship acts as a major comedic relief from the stress and drama involving the movie the kids are making.

The actors Patch Darragh and Claudine Mboligikpelani Nako provide an alternate perspective of parents—instead revealing a more intimate, vibrant and complicated one.

Between tee-peeing houses and smoking confiscated marijuana, Ken and Sherry raise hell in the small town of Boring.

By the end of Season 1, the song “Wonderwall” by Oasis will be rattling in your head along with a brief contentedness that is broken with a new, shocking development—Luke’s father. According to What’s on Netflix, a renewal date for "Everything Sucks!" has not been publicized but is imminent.
