NeNetflix is rebooting the very popular series of books ‘The Baby-Sitters Club’ with a TV Show. I had the chance to review the first episode.
Premiere Date: July 3, 2020
Plot: The Baby-Sitters Club is based on the best-selling, beloved book series that follows the friendship and adventures of Kristy Thomas (Sophie Grace), Mary Anne Spier (Malia Baker), Claudia Kishi (Momona Tamada), Stacey McGill (Shay Rudolph) and Dawn Schafer (Xochitl Gomez) as the middle-schoolers start their babysitting business in the town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut.
Ep1: Kristy’s Great Idea
Sophie Grace is the star of our first episode as Kristy Thomas. She decides after she overheard how much it cost to have a baby sitter that she was going to start a babysitter service. She recruits a team of kids to make this happen.
Kristy Thomas is a little girl that likes to be in control, unfortunately for her, she realizes that being controlling can come at a price.
The first episode does a good job of laying out the groundwork of how the “Baby Sitter’s Club” is built. The kids hold their own in this episode providing the perfect amount of spunk to make the show rather enjoyable.
The show out of the gate decides to tackle a hard topic of re-marriage, I do like the idea of them trying to tackle some of the hard things for kids to understand within the Baby Sitter’s Club.
Overall the first episode was good enough to make me want more.
