I Am Not Okay With This | See the 18th century references of the series

Netflix's new darling made a good impression by taking inspiration from supernatural and teen-age classics like Carrie and Club of Five

I Am Not Okay With This debuted recently and it didn't take much to become the newest darling of the Netflix. This is due to the good story that is told in a light and even fun way and the references he uses in the development of the plot. And we couldn't help but start with Jonathan Entwistle, one of the creators, who printed the same universe in his series as his other production, The End of the F **** ing World. The two play with sarcasm, irony, melancholy and youthful freshness in an adolescent universe.

Because it is a production that draws inspiration from other works, it is very charming and interesting due to its balanced use, remembering that it is not an adaptation that fights with the original, but pays homage. So that nothing is left out, we have prepared a short list of everything I Am Not Okay With This carries in its composition and what a fan should not miss.

80's

The identity of the series is very eighteenth. The soundtrack, the costumes of the characters… It becomes the same that permeates the universe of Fri Education and Stranger Things, of course, with some differences - some with more technologies than others. Everything very colorful and simple at the same time. The soundtrack is special. Composed by Bloodwitch, Pixies and many other artists of that time, it is a detail that is an intrinsic part of the work and that sounds very authentic if we take into account that few people - currently - know these bands.

Mortal Attraction (1988)

You know that movie with Winona Ryder where the young woman writes in a diary and when she starts some scenes saying “Dear diary…”? From the beginning we see Sid narrating the main events while writing in his diary. Hence the reference to I Am Not Okay With This. Recalling that the ironic tone is used in both productions.

The Pink-Shocking Girl, Club of Five and Enjoying Life Sick - John Hughes in weight!

If you think Syd (Sophia Lillis) is the only one to make references, it is totally wrong. Stan (Wyatt Oleff) is the charming point of the series. He is a young man who has his own style and takes the dress seriously during the plot (although his violent father criticizes him). And we can see that Stan is an updated version of Duckie, in The Pink-Shocking Girl, long with script by John Hughes, from 1986. The character Duckie is played by Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men) and it was like an avalanche of good taste for its costumes and sunglasses.

Jon Cryer in The Pink-Shocking Girl

The fifth episode is dedicated especially to the famous feature Club of Five, directed by John Hughes in 1985. The detention, the personality of each suspended student, the way they try to deceive the principal, the way they behave and the relationship between them forcibly, all these details refer to the feature film .

And the bath scene where Stan sings with shampoo in hand? Another reference to John Hughes in which Syd's best friend prepares to leave is a clear inspiration in Enjoying Sick Life, from 1987.

Deadly Machine is not left behind

If you didn't get the reference, here it is. Also in the fifth episode, the director says the same iconic phrase that was eternalized in the cop's voice Murtaugh, "I'm too old for this shit" in Deadly machine. Although the fifth episode is a stage of references of the Club of Five, we had a small space dedicated to the classic action of 1987.

There's room for Stephen King

Although not from the 1980s, it has much Stephen King in the new Netflix production. when we talk about this type of literature, we talk about a very characteristic character from that time: the misfit teenager, who faces bullies, who deals with prejudice and in some cases has a plot turned to the supernatural. In one of the scenes, the homage to the 1976 classic is clear, Carrie. With a white dress, covered in blood and with telekinesis skills, it is another well-made reference.

“Plus” scenes

As much as the series has an aesthetic focused on the 70s, 80s and 90s, we have some scenes that are inspired by current productions or some similarities of “chance”. For example, the party where Syd goes with Dina and Stan looks a lot like the scene from the feature film The advantages of being invisible where Sam, Charlie and Patrick are together at a party too. And during this party, the behaviors are repeated.
