From the International best seller childrens' books, Life is pretty humorous when you look at it from the point of view of the five young teenage girls in The Sleepover Club. They have a secret society with rules and conventions - and no boys or parents allowed. Constantly dealing with their archrivals three teenage boys called the M&Ms life couldn't be more serious or more fun. The Sleepover Club combines drama and humour with the odd fantasy sequence to make seriously cool TV. Written by
to be honest, i am not particularly aware how Australians create their own television series, but what i can assume is that it is certainly NOT Hollywood-type, teeny-bopper series stereotype that most of us Filipinos are used to here.
the sleepover club, for me, offers a really refreshing view how Australian pre-teen life - blissful at least - is really like there. and i do admire and respect the producer's efforts to moderate certain issues in their series.
perhaps the best quality this show has to offer is that it features one virtue that most of us nowadays take fully advantage of....INNOCENCE. the fact that these kids would get on with their lives, have fun, break and remake friendships once more plus with quite astoundingly minimal adult supervision could really for me sound very achieving. many of my relatives who live there have always told me that the Australian psyche is always one that is generally warm, hospitable, open and liberal....quite apart to what you may experience in the US nowadays.
provided that these generalities are true, then this show will indeed have many more years to come....to keep up it's well-defined and poignant Australian life through the eyes of a child.
