We all love books here, but I thought I might start dedicating some posts on Saturdays to highlight one of my other loves – TV!
What I’m watching
The Baby-Sitters Club on Netflix. The show is based on the book series of the same name, focusing on a group of young girls who start their own babysitting service. There is currently one season with ten episodes available.
Why I’m Watching
If there is one thing that defined much of my childhood, it’s The Baby-Sitters Club books. I remember one summer walking to our small town library every day and checking out multiple BSC books at a time. Or going to Walden’s Books in the mall and using allowance money to purchase as many as I could. There are over 100 books in the series, as well as multiple Super Specials, which ignited my love of the Multiple 1st Person POV.
While I am, obviously, much older than the target audience for the show, I knew I had to watch it. And it’s adorable! Not every episode is a winner and they get a little too social justice warrior-y for me at times, but it was enjoyable and filled me with so much nostalgia. I thought the casting was on point for most of the characters and it was fun to see Alicia Silverstone and Marc Evan Jackson as some of the parents.
Watch If You Like…
I don’t watch enough teeny-bopper shows to be able to list similar shows, but you should definitely give this one a try if you read and loved the books as a kid, like I did.
