What a "classic"(sarcasm)
19 February 1999 | by Goon-2See all my reviews

I LOVED these books when they first came out and until several years after, so of course I had to try the silly TV series that was spawned from them. How was it? Well, I think I was 10 when I first watched, and I didn't even like it then. That was when I took "The Baby-sitter's Club" seriously, and I didn't like how they used different plots. Also, I was not crazy about the actors. They could have done better with many of them. The one who played stupid Mary Anne doesn't even REMOTELY look like the dumb character on the book covers.(but to give her "credit", the actress is pathetically probably one of the "better" ones.)

Anyway, when I was 10, I saw the show, didn't like it and went on with life. Several years later, I discovered that they were showing reruns on the Disney channel, so I decided to check one out. How was it? Well, it was still as corny as ever. If it had been more popular, it would have been to TV in the '90s what Full House was in the '80s and what The Brady Bunch was in the late '60s and early '70s. Those girls are supposed to be 13 and they act about 35! In one episode, when stupid Kristy (who I never liked in the books, and most certainly don't love in the show) was helping some third grader run for class president, and she and her pals were thinking up slogans in the street. When they finally found one, they chanted it over and over again and squealed and giggled as that silly theme song played in the background. Yuck! "Real" people would never be caught dead doing such a thing. Another particularly nauseating episode was when some boys tried to join the BSC.

Well, the episodes may have been nauseating, and I don't care for many of the casting choices. Stupid Dawn was supposed to be from California, and sounds like some reject from New York, and Kristy simply bugs me. The other's aren't much better. It is these flaws and the fact that it also tends to be BORING that make me not exactly take this show seriously, but it is entertaining, neverthless. What a "classic."
