Spoilers of 'The Baby-Sitters Club'
The third adaptation of the amazing book series hit Netflix on July 2 and all the '90s kids and the newer generation seem to be enjoying the 30-minute episodes. The show's 10 episodes bring to life the novels that influenced an entire generation, and this reboot was made to speak to the current generation as it deals with racism, divorce and many other heavy themes.
"OH MY GOD THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE MOVIE #BabysittersClub," wrote one fan referring to the 1995 film. "I couldn’t fall asleep so I started watching @netflix’s #BabySittersClub and it’s so great! Modern and fully “now” without losing any of the original spirits!" wrote another fan.
From Kristy Thomas (Sophie Grace) and her fierce attitude down to the introduction of two special characters that most have been waiting for, the series did in fact do a wonderful job merging two generations. "#BabysittersClub might be the purest, most wholesome thing I’ve ever seen. I don’t know about you, but that’s exactly the kind of content I need right now. It’s out today on @NetflixUK!" tweeted another fan echoing our very sentiments. Another added, "Nothing I love more than actors experiencing a premiere and #[email protected] is so special because it really was my childhood. I watched the first episode and hope all those girls are so proud of the magic they made in bringing it to life it’s SO good!!!"
It seems fans are binging the series, which makes sense considering it was a highly anticipated one. Another fan wrote, "Watched the first episode of #babysittersclub and I’m so the nostalgia is real and I already love it so much, I can’t wait to watch more." The series is a modernized twist on a classic, and each character was so well casted and the actors' delivery was impeccable. The series made sure to keep the "oldie" sentiment from the '90s still intact, but also added quite a few modernities to speak to their new listening audience. "Watched four episodes of BSC and let me tell you trussssst me this is show you guys need to watch RN RN RN!!!," wrote another viewer.
For some '90s kids, who have children now, have come full circle as they watched their young ones watch a series they grew up reading. A Twitter user wrote, "I can't believe my daughter is watching #thebabysittersclub right now, what a crazy thing life is! Grew up reading the novels!! #BSCforever."
It seems as though the series is a huge hit and has resonated with many fans. "The #BabySittersClub on Netflix is exactly what we need right now. I am not the target audience, but I appreciated every second of what this show managed to do. It blends this sense of nostalgia with (impactful) modern elements. Their friendship is showcased beautifully!," wrote another fan.
'The Baby-Sitters Club' Season 1 is now available to stream on Netflix.
