Ridiculous Characters Meant To Pander To Today's Teens
29 June 2016 | by mikeonline-74484See all my reviews

Despite the fact that every reviewer should watch an episode in full to warrant any kind of review, I could not bring myself to finish this ridiculous piece of trash.

Some Freeform shows are a lot of fun and have some merit in one way or another, but this one fails right from the start when introducing us to its band of teenage cohorts ready for either slaughter or sleuthing.

While I appreciate the fact that this show may purposely be utilizing clichéd archetypes of the summer slasher genre, it completely fails when considering the time period that the show is set it, as it lazily throws around some buzzwords meant to invoke the late 80s, and that is as far as the writers went in putting any thought into it. Being a teenager myself in 1989, I was excited for this show, but my excitement turned to disgust and disappointment pretty quick.

Unless you are a clueless millennial who has virtually no knowledge of the 80s, do yourself a favor and give this show a pass. No doubt it will run several seasons as the kiddies of today lap it up...

Show-writers, just a hint... unless this show is set in 1989 Alphabet City or San Francisco, there will not be an openly gay teen flaming his way around, and making passes at every boy that walks by. This is just demeaning and degrading, and not in the least empowering or realistic.
