While binging on Netflix's Sex Education, all our awkward high school memories came flooding back to us (like that not-so-helpful "Birds and the Bees" talk from our parents). But, it also made us feel a bit nostalgic for our teenage years. Because, in addition to the friend drama and getting grounded for missing curfew, there were some really good times!
If you want to take a trip down memory lane to relive the good, the bad and the once-embarrassing now-funny, these Netflix series are much more enjoyable than actually being a teenager.
The End of the Fxxxing World
In high school, everyone is finding themeselves—or at least trying to. James' self-discovery has left him convinced he's a psychopath. The End of the Fuxxxing World follows this budding murderer on a road trip with his angsty pal (potential victim???) Alyssa.
The biggest realization upon graduating high school is that no one is "normal." Atypical will make you laugh and give you all the feels as you watch Sam start his dating journey. As a teenager on the autism spectrum, he faces certain challenges but, fortunately, has a loving family to support him.
Based on a true story, Baby will shock you. In fact, this series about the secret lives of two Italian high school girls has come under fire for "glamorizing" underage prostitution. But, that hasn't stopped viewers from binging on this series, which debuted in November. It has an 80 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Growing up is hard enough without doing so surrounded by political turmoil. Derry Girls tells the story of five teenagers living in Northern Ireland in the 1990s. Fans of dark humor will love this show.
These days, you can't be on Netflix for more than a few seconds before getting bombarded with recommendations for true crime documentaries. American Vandal pokes fun at the genre's popularity with its investigation into high school pranks.
Doesn't the name of this show just make you wanna slam your bedroom door and start furiously scribbling in your diary?? Everything Sucks! takes place in the 1990s in Boring, Oregon (amazing). The school's drama and AV clubs team up to make a movie that will get their fellow students to notice them. Everyone is dealing with #teenagerproblems, and that's precisely why everything sucks.
