When I heard that netflix were bringing back this cult comedy I was surprised. Personally when i first watched the original I enjoyed it but after a while I just forgot about it. I was shocked at how much of a cult following it gained over the years. Don't get me wrong I did enjoy the movie and i shouldn't really complain about getting a whole season of seeing the actors back playing their characters before the original movie took place. I did find it funny how they are supposed to be young adults but they look much older than before. I don't really care about this sort of thing as long as they address it. Anyway I probably should review the TV show so here goes... I've binge watched all of the episodes and the weakest episodes were definitely the first two, and understandably so. However it does gradually improve, but that doesen't mean i loved the last few episodes and this is definitely down to me not being a huge fan of the movie. I can definitely see fans of the movie loving this nostalgia filled series; there are lots of callbacks to the film, some which i probably missed and people can feel joy in this aspect. But as I am not one of these people I just found this series to be a fairly funny show. The a- list actors were the main redeeming quality and the cast alone is why my score is a 7 and not a 4, but I do wish we saw them much more. I found the younger cast annoying and i didn't care about them at all. The cringe was a little bit unbalanced and left me not enjoying the experience a lot more. But that's not saying i hate awkward shows; the UK and us office are one of my favourite TV shows and that is because they did it right and there were enough jokes to balance out the funny awkwardness. But "First Day Of Camp" is a different story and I think people who enjoyed it, deep down were probably a little disappointed.
Overall, if you are a fan of the original then you may find some enjoyment in this prequel but if you aren't then you are not missing out by not watching it. But i still found myself chuckling at times and whenever an actor who I liked showed up I did find some enjoyment in that aspect. Nevertheless, despite this I was still disappointed with this netflix show considering their amazing streak they are on.
