[ # ] Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is as fun as camp!
August 1st, 2015 under Netflix

We know how Camp Firewood ended their summer in 1981, and now on Netflix we get to see how it all began in Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.
Here’s some math to mess with you, it’s been 14 years since the movie came out and it then took place 20 years earlier. Does that makes sense? Now the series takes place 8 weeks earlier than the movie that came out 14 years ago, so that means that the Netflix comedy took place 33 years ago. So in short the actors are 14 years older playing 8 weeks younger than they were then. Confused? Who cares, just enjoy the series because none of the actors aged a day in all of this time.
David Wain and Michael Showalter, who created the series, had a lot of fun making the 8 30-minutes episode as wacky as possible. They gave our campers and counselors backstories that we had no idea about, and some of them more shocking than the others. Gene’s (Christopher Meloni) is by far the best. Actually, he has a great scene with Jon Hamm in an episode that is the series stealer. The best actor goes to Chris Pine, but I can’t tell you what his role is because that would spoil it. Lindsay (Elizabeth Banks) has the most shocking story how she wound up at Camp Firewood, but it makes sense by the end of it.
WHAS is campy, and I don’t want to say too much so that you can enjoy prequel. Enjoy you will do because each half hour is filled with a laugh a minute. Since this is only day one of their 8 week journey, that means this can go on for 56 more years. Seeing how much the cast enjoyed working on this series, I can see it going on that long. Just think at that rate many our counselors will be walking around with walkers or being wheeled around in wheelchairs. And by then Ken Marino’s balls will be hanging out of his jean shorts. Did I mention, he has aged the best out of all of his cast members?
