Here's a show that reminded of me being a teen and getting up to all sorts of mischief, and by gee, these girls really live. As in Blue Water High, Mortified, etc, being an educational show, there's always a message in each episode, the same same actress seen at the start and finish. As catching it when into season two, Morgan Griffith (Charlie), is really the only talent who's benefited from it, where overall the other actors do very well, their performance very natural, where kids are course are naturals. Rachel Watson as Teylah is quite good too, but none better, is the actress who plays the mean, sour prude Crystal, where I'm surprised I haven't seen in anything else. Her her suck up friend who tags along (Ruby Hall) overacts a little. I have also seen in another kid's show, where she's very good. Yes The Sleepover Clubs deals with all kinds of angsts, very familiar and important, some that are painfully all too common. The characters, of course, adapted from books are colourful, and of course, how could we forget the girl's arch enemies, The Blockheads, the lead Jason actually coming over as likable. It so reminded me of kids I knew. The magic however is in how bloody entertaining the show is made, where obviously it's made a successful adaption to screen. Even the song rocks. I wish a show like this was around when I was a kid. Fault note: I may'be mistaken, but I think different rules stated in this club, have been related to the same number, but who care really. Honestly, a highly recommended watch, not just for kids, as is Mortified, these actors of both these shows, knocking the Blue Water High actors off the shelf or leaving them to shame.
