At the beginning of a global pandemic, Netflix dropped a gem: Outer Banks. The teen adventure drama tells the story of a young, working class man named John B whose father goes missing while looking for treasure off the coast of North Carolina. John B then sets off in his father’s footsteps to find him and the treasure along with his friends. There’s a turf war between the rich kids and poor kids, family drama, and melodramatic romance, but somehow it manages to stick the landing.
Kevin said: “I started watching Outer Banks in April 2020 when there was nothing to do except disinfect your groceries, stay inside, and watch Netflix. It’s got a lot of heart, but it is also balls-to-the-walls bonkers. I was also living in South Carolina at the time, so I was able to live out my dream of a Southern coastal summer in the midst of self-isolating.”
