Little bits of all our 90s favorites come together in Do Revenge + Zamalek’s African Champions League begins + Head to Süss for a start-of-the-week sugar rush

📺 ON THE TUBE TONIGHT-
(all times CLT)

Do Revenge is a mash-up of 90s teen movies with a dash of Hitchcock: The snappy Netflix dark comedy is set at a prestigious school in Miami and features students dressed up like they’re on the set of Clueless, with cool kids lounging by the fountain in typical Scream style, and we get an inside look at the various subcultures at the high school, a la Mean Girls and 10 Things I Hate About You. The movie centers on Drea (Camila Mendes), a high-achiever with the sole goal of getting into Yale, who makes over social misfit Eleanor (Maya Hawke). Meanwhile, the show’s only adult character, the high school principal, is played by the ultimate 90s teen star: Sarah Michelle Gellar. The plot is a spin on Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, in which a killer convinces an anonymous stranger to “switch” murders with him so that the police will treat both crimes as random and never catch either of them. But instead of murder, the goal here is shame: Drea and Eleanor plot to trade revenge missions on their high school tormentors so that no evidence will trail back to them. Our verdict: Do Revenge is a fun, Gen Z-inspired remake of the sassy adolescent classics of the 1990s, and is worth tuning into when you’re looking for some light streaming after a long day (watch trailer, runtime 2:39)

Zamalek begins its African Champions League journey at 5pm with a game against Chad’s Elect Sport in the first leg of the preliminary round. The return match will be held in Cairo a week later.

English Premier League: Gameweek 8 concludes today, and the league resumes in October as the players go on their international break. Everton’s match against West Ham kicks off at 3:15 pm — just a few minutes after we hit “send” on this issue — while the match between Brentford and Arsenal wrapped up earlier with a score of 3-0 for Arsenal.

La Liga: The Madrid derby between Atletico and Real kicks off at 9pm. Also today: Villarreal faces Sevilla at 4:15pm, and later at 6:30pm Real Betis plays Girona and Real Sociedad plays Espanyol.

It’s a big day in Serie A: You don’t want to miss Italy’s two giants Milan and Napoli facing off at 8:45pm. The two teams are in the lead after six rounds, at 14 points each, along with Atalanta who faces Roma at 6pm. Roma is currently in fifth place with 13 points. Monza v Juventus kicked off at 3 pm and the teams are currently battling it out on the field as we dispatch.

For fans of France’s Ligue 1, we recommend tuning into Lyon v Paris Saint-Germain at 8:45pm.

🍰EAT THIS TONIGHT-

Start the week with a worthy sugar rush at West Cairo’s Süss: Sometimes all you need is a no-nonsense destination to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings, and we recently came across all the treats we could possibly need at 6th of October’s Süss. The pastry shop offers some of the most innovative dessert options, starting with their Iced Pistachio Croissant or Oreo Leche Croissant (or just a tasty regular ol’ plain one if you’re so inclined). Next up, the menu boasts a sugary take on Japanese sushi, including white chocolate sushi, mastic sushi, or cheesecake sushi. The restaurant also offers fettuccine crepe and ice cream pizzas that are worth feasting on. Süss is located at Melanite Mall.

🎤 OUT AND ABOUT-
(all times CLT)

💡 UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-

The host of Crime Junkie makes her writing debut with a gripping psychological thriller: In All Good People Here, a journalist who gets obsessed with the unsolved death of her childhood neighbor — and the disappearance of another girl 20 years later — discovers her hometown’s dark secrets. With her debut novel, the reigning true crime podcast queen Ashley Flowers has created a gorgeously winding trip, with beautifully-developed characters that kept us on the edge of our seats the entire time. We love a good thriller or murder mystery, and enjoy trying to figure out the puzzle before the book is over — at least three times while reading All Good People Here, we were absolutely certain we had it all figured out, only to find that we were dead wrong.
