Netflix Debuts Trailer For 90s Set Coming-Of-Age Comedy ‘Everything Sucks’

Don’t judge a show by its title. Based on the trailer, there’s absolutely nothing about this that sucks. Mind you I love the 90s, minus dial-up connection, so I’m biased.

If you’re like me and adore the Cranberries, Alanis Morrisette, Dr. Martens and all things associated with the decade, this charming comedy from Netflix is for you.

The 90s high school experience: Desperate, heartfelt, awkward, exciting, and free of smartphones. Set in the real life town of Boring, Oregon in 1996, Everything Sucks! is a quirky, funny coming of age story that revolves around Boring High School’s A/V Club and Drama Club— two crews of nerdy-edgy outsiders, who join forces to make a movie and endure the purgatory known as high school.

The series stars Peyton Kennedy (American Fable, The Captive) and Jahi Winston (The New Edition Story) as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh (Sully, Boardwalk Empire) and Claudine Nako (Grimm) as their respective parents. The 10-episode, half-hour dramedy is created by Ben York Jones (Like Crazy, Newness) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date, Pink Grapefruit), who will both serve as executive producers.

Everything Sucks arrives on February 16. Check out the trailer below.

PS. Do they still have A/V clubs anymore? I loved being in mine back in the day 🙂 #futurenerd
