Best Netflix Binge
7 November 2012 | by KmR_414See all my reviews

It took me a couple episodes to realize this show wasn't going to have the same 'feel good sappy happy' episodes as most other American television shows. It's a show about teenagers in the 80s but it's also a show about teenagers all the time. Watching this show was like reading Catcher in the Rye or maybe even a John Steinbeck book - it's about how teenagers are and moments in life we all go through or have struggled with. The writing is incredible, the actors are superb, and it's as genuine and quality as it gets for television. It's one the most truthful representation of "the best years of your life." I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this series. I miss it and I've only now seen the series once through.
