Critic Reviews for The Baby-Sitters Club Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (11)

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.

Jul 2, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

There are plenty of happy-go-lucky characters on TV. But rarely do we see the nuance of joy - the struggle to achieve it, the idea that someone else might be left out of it - portrayed so expertly, let alone told in stories about children.

The casting is stellar and provides evidence that other series simply aren't doing enough to seek out diverse talent. Clearly, it is there.

Jul 10, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Tween-friendly books-based reboot celebrates friendship.

Jul 9, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The foundation for a successful reimagining of a beloved classic is firmly in place and the results are pleasing enough -- a nice viewing experience for a lazy summer afternoon.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

This Netflix series does a stellar job of adapting the popular book series, all while adding modern touches to the overall narrative so that it doesn't feel dated in any way.

Jul 9, 2020 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The Netflix adaptation makes every episode and plot point feel important, and lets the characters' details and desires feel valid. That makes this the kind of kids' show that transcends audience age.

Jul 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It's funny, charming, and real. The Baby-Sitters Club is a celebration of an age when you start to see the world differently, and the best way to make it through is with your friends by your side.

Jul 6, 2020 | Full Review…

That escapism with a lesson is precisely the core of the Baby-Sitters Club books that Netflix has captured so charmingly with its adaptation.

Jul 6, 2020 | Full Review…

The Baby-Sitters Club revives a classic from the last decade of the last century, giving it the right attitude for today while never losing what makes any sincere tale of growing up relatable to all generations.

Jul 6, 2020 | Full Review…

The Baby-Sitters Club is a delightful little show, perfect for moms and daughters (and brothers and fathers too).

Jul 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Whether you read the book 30 years or 30 minutes ago, there's so much to love about this show.

Audience Reviews for The Baby-Sitters Club: Season 1

  • 25m ago
    A review for this show cannot be summed up in one sentence. Shows can usually be hit or miss with people. Some people are hungers while some like to take it day by day, or week by week if they rely on cable. To the point, there are shows that exist to get viewers in with a derivative premise. Others rely on common tropes to relay on if the show is quality enough to talk about. Then there's the guilty pleasure pile, which typically range from action fests, to over dramatic romance, and the classic family oriented drama. The babysitters club is the latter; and it goes beyond everything I've just explained. I've heard of the books for many years and I've been trying to get into them by access means, but there were always obstacles. Finding out there were five hundred, I figured it would be almost impossible to rush this entire series. Then this show came out. I was gonna our it on hold after finishing Jessie, starting Gilmore girls, and binging the new Juno origins, which is also really good. Onto the quality, it isn't just the modernization that will get you, though there's An appropriate plenty of that for everyone. It's the way everyone connects with each other so authentically. You really do feel for the characters regardless if you've ever been a part of their social situations. It gives beneficial nostalgia for tv addicts like what little women 2019 did for film buffs, both of whom also love reading; and if you don't, you'll wanna start. The last perfect score I gave for a show was for big little lies, stranger things, and avatar the last airbender respectively. I'm happy to add this to my catalogue and I am hoping to soon dive deeper into those adorable, precious young girls' lives.

    Love this show. Fantastic themes. Wonderful messages. Great show for parents and tweens/teens alike. I hope they make another season or two or three. We need more Shows like this which are entertaining for parents and kids alike so they can be enjoyed together!

    This was a fantastic way to bring this series back to life! The subtle updating to the original stories to fit present day honors Ann M. Martin's original approach to diversity in characters to a new generation can love the series like the original BSC fans from the 80's did ❤️

    Am 35 years old and this took me straight back to a wholesome time in my life where I didn't have to worry about my job, kids, husband, bills and all that other dumb adult stuff I'm now stuck with. The series honours the books but does a great job updating the content for todays audience. The cast is perfect and just how I imagined them back as a pre-teen in early Millenia

    I grew up with the baby sitters club. I remember watching the original series on VHS and see the movie in theaters. I checked so many of the books out from the library. This Netflix reboot is absolute perfection. It proves this is timeless material. It stays true to it's roots while also making updates that freshen it up for a new generation. I was not let down by this reboot and will likely be watching it again. The young actors are relative unknowns but they are all outstanding and are headed for big things. The parents have a few familiar faces to appeal to the adults who may watch with their kid. Overall a great show I can only hope they renew for a season two it would be a shame to only receive one season of this. Especially with all the source material they have to work with.
