Set in the 90s, Everything Sucks shows teen love in an age without technology. It’s the definition of old-school romance.  It’s a story about a bunch of teens aspiring to make a movie and the problems they’re faced with, in that era. The role was a pivotal one for Euphoria star Sidney Sweeney, so we know it has good acting. The critical ratings of the show are quite good too.

Ginny and Georgia

Ginny and Georgia got known for how unexpectedly great it turned out to be. It follows a family of 3, across an affluent British town where the trio has escaped, to start a new life. The 15-year-old Ginny is maturer than her 30-year-old mom, Georgia, and the other daughter Austin is a welcome distraction to Ginny and Georgia’s otherwise constantly complicated life.

Never have I ever aptly shows the struggles an Indian teen girl might face in the American world. It doesn’t only highlight the Indians as a minority but other ethnicities too.

It has an intricately written plot that crisscrosses the paths of its characters in great detail.
