Did You Know?


The Abby Flynn character, disregarding the hyper-sexuality, is a reference to the character of Abby Cadabby, introduced to Sesame Street in 2006. Controversial for reinforcing the worst stereotypes of what little girls like, she is a pink, sparkly, pig-tailed, baby-doll voiced fairy. With sugary baby speech patterns to match. See more »

TGS Hates Women (#5.16)
14 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

TGS is accused of hating women and the new writer shows off a lot of negative female stereotypes that irritate Liz. Jack has a new rival, Kayle Hooper a teenager who may inherit Kabletown so he does his best to make her not be interested in television by getting her closer to marine biology.

Wonderful episode. The whole story of Jack battling a kid was hilarious, especially with the twist at the end when it turns out she was playing him as well, getting him closer to his childhood dreams. We need more of her! And Chloë Grace Moretz did a great job. The school scene was a masterpiece, both of writing an acting.
