The Reemergence of Avatar

[Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when Covid-19 attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop the quarantine boredom, but when the world needed him most, he vanished. Twelve years after the show’s finale, Netflix discovered the Avatar, an Airbender named Aang. Since May 2020, “Avatar: The Last Airbender” has been available to stream on Netflix. I believe that Aang can save quarantine.]

Netflix’s New Series is the Coming-of-Age Story We’ve Been Waiting For

Netflix released yet another original back in February called Everything Sucks! and I’m here to spoil it for you. The show is set in 1996 in Boring, Oregon, which is actually a real place, though it was filmed in Oregon City and Portland. The show revolves primarily around the stories of Luke and Kate, a freshman and a sophomore at Boring High School. Surprise, surprise, these kids are played by real 14-year-olds and not random 24-year-olds pretending like they still look young enough to pass as high schoolers. I’m going to take you through each episode, give you the highlights, and hopefully explain why I got so emotionally invested in this short-lived Netflix original.
