Everything Sucks! is a brilliantly funny series that served as a parody of the teen culture throughout the ’90s. The series is set in a town name Boring, Oregon and it follows the A/V Club and the Drama Club students at Boring High School. The students of both clubs are seen as misfits and are largely disconnected from the rest of the students regarding their interests and social circles. While the series was well-received by both the critics and the audience series was canceled just after one season. So, if you also miss Everything Sucks! here are some shows you could watch next.
