      Scarlett Harris Bitch Media The Baby-Sitters Club is never going to be Euphoria - both in regards to subject matter and fire Halloween costumes - but it's a wholesome take on some of the things teens and tweens are dealing with today. Mar 15, 2021 Full Review Angie Han Mashable To the characters, the club may be about entrepreneurship and childcare, but to viewers, its true purpose is to serve as a space where these girls get to just be girls, figuring out their place in the world in their own time and on their own terms. Dec 15, 2020 Full Review Lucy Mangan Guardian If it sounds woefully woke or effortful, it's not. It's done with grace and naturalness, with jokes scattered generously throughout. Rated: 4/5 Dec 15, 2020 Full Review Michael Cuby them. Two decades after its conclusion comes Netflix’s adaptation, a surprisingly charming update bolstered by a magnetic cast of talented young actors. Oct 3, 2022 Full Review Kevin Fallon The Daily Beast As refreshing as it is to watch a product of what's seemed like a forgotten era-series marketed to tweens that are actually age appropriate and featuring no Archies, Betties, or Veronicas having threesomes or solving gruesome murders-it's also profound. Dec 15, 2020 Full Review Vivian Kane The Mary Sue The most substantial way in which the series pays homage to the original is the ways in which it celebrates kindness. Rated: 5/5 Dec 15, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Sam W Amazing perfect tv series. It's a shame it got cancelled Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/12/23 Full Review Diane H I watched five episodes, and it's good for younger people, but just a little too young for my tastes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Took one of the best book series of all time, changed nearly every character and plot point to make it more 'woke'. Literally the worst TV show I've ever seen. If there was a no star option, I would give this disgrace to the original books a negative ten. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Its really bood. Very in the now at the same time very heartfelt. What the kids to watch nowadays. Especially girls. It will teach and show hows friendship should be Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved this modern take on a much-loved childhood series, which brings a refreshing element of comedy and wit, and the sense of being "in it" with the characters, as opposed to just story-telling. A successful appropriation of the original books into a future with technology, social media and other challenges facing young people, not to mention the awesome soundtrack, this series is a massive leap from the previous series attempts/movies. Especially moved by the added themes of social acceptance and finding bridges through cultural barriers that was not so pronounced in the book. These are deliberate social comments on very current (and polemic) social issues - same-sex relationships, gender identity, community responsibility, etc. Although a certain social ideation is very obvious, the themes are simultaneously subtle in the series (like when Mary-Anne goes to babysit a new client, and no big deal is made about the child's identifying with a different gender). Can't wait for Season 2, and 3 and, how many books were there? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Incredible adaptation of a classic children's literature.
