News & Interviews for The Baby-Sitters Club: Season 1
What makes "The Baby-Sitters Club" so special is there aren't any weak links. Not only does every actor fit their role beautifully, they work as a cohesive unit.
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.
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.
If it sounds woefully woke or effortful, it's not. It's done with grace and naturalness, with jokes scattered generously throughout.
Yes, it occasionally tips its hat to its specific target audience, but these 10 episodes present a richly detailed, nuanced portrait of what it's like to be a young woman, and it deserves than better to be written off as "girl TV."
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.
The most substantial way in which the series pays homage to the original is the ways in which it celebrates kindness.
Netflix's more popular "teen" shows tend to be a little more mature but The Baby-Sitters Club fits in more with Never Have I Ever and Pen15. More importantly it makes you feel-what is this-joy?
Even with all the updated bells and whistles, perhaps the best thing about The Baby-Sitters Club is its worldview-one of warmth, empathy, and optimism.
The Baby-Sitters Club breaks ground by never treating its characters, or its audience, like we need to be babysat.
Audience Reviews for The Baby-Sitters Club: Season 1
Jan 25, 2021Incredible adaptation of a classic children's literature.
Jan 04, 2021Loved the books, loved the show, but some of the far-left concepts were too much. Also, doesn't make sense to have a group of girls being brave and ambitious with money in their pocket from their job, complain about having to buy teeshirts at a sleepaway camp. The term "utopia" is used as what the camp should be ...this is so out of touch and unrealistic, anyone that has been to a camp will agree. Plus, the kids that could pay for the teeshirt may have worked all summer to afford this extra or their parents worked extra hours...how unjust to demand it's free when some people have already worked and expended their time to pay. If something is too expensive, then fewer people will buy the product. If too few people buy the product, the "company" will not sell enough to make a profit and the market will adjust...it's called economics.

Aug 25, 2020Same plot you see around...over and over again.
Aug 23, 2020Heartwarming and clever, The Baby Sitters Club will make kids laugh and adults cry.
Aug 14, 2020A beautifully written show about working through young friendships and getting past others' flaws. The lessons were very thoughtful and heartwarming. I laughed and even teared up a little. Really great little show for all ages!
Aug 11, 2020Phenomenally well done, with a strong attention to detail. Didn't get through a single episode with dry eyes. Handles important topics in a way appropriate for audiences young and old.
Aug 07, 2020Nothing staler than a remake with modern cultural politics haphazardly injected to appease indoctrinating parents.
