Finally, a reason to stream Peacock!
I wasn't sure how much I would like this one because this had many of the same producers and writers from "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," and I couldn't make it past the first 10 minutes of the first episode of that one. But "Girls5eva," the reunion of a Spice Girls-type group from the 90's, is much better, and much funnier. The four main players - Sarah Bareilles, Busy Philipps, Paula Pell, and Renee Elise Goldsberry - all do a great job. Goldsberry is probably the MVP of this group, because she's very funny, and she can actually sing in real life. Bareilles is in real life the most successful singer, but she's mostly the "straight-man" here among this group, and leaves the funny lines to others. Philipps is very funny, buy my favorite is probably Paula Pell. Her casting in the show itself is funny, because she plays someone who has aged so poorly compared to her counterparts that in the flashback scenes, her character is the only one who's played by a different, younger-looking actress!
