After a TV show’s finale premiers, the show tends to surge in popularity and then soon be forgotten. Occasionally though, a gem among the other crappy Netflix originals is found which puts viewers in an autumnal mood.

I don’t have to seriously analyze what is going on, I can just sit back and chill.

Those movies hold a special place in my heart because of the nostalgia of VCRs, the memories associated with them, and the quality of the movies.

Teens strive to be stereotyped to fit in with social groups
