With the recent revival of iconic 90s shows like 'Friends', 'Freaks and Geeks' and 'Malcolm in the Middle,' it really comes as no surprise that Netflix is about to launch its own original 90s-inspired TV show. 'Everything Sucks!' is temporally situated in the mid-90s in a town in Oregon called Boring.

Netflix released a teaser trailer for its upcoming series and ironically, a majority of the actors appear too young to have first-hand experience of the decade. The video is shot in the style of the iconic VH1 Pop-Up Videos that reminds 90s kids all too well the struggles that became extinct with social media and modern technology. The 90s-inspired TV show playfully reminds (or introduces) the audience of the skipping CDs in Walkmans, the permanence of physical photographic film and primitive sexting techniques.
