Babysitter’s Club is coming to Netflix bitches!
So far it has only been confirmed that the main five girls will be in the show — Kristy, Claudia, Stacey, Mary Ann and Dawn. This begs the question what about Mallory and Jessi? Sure they are junior members of the BSC but just as important character-wise.
Mallory is important. Okay so I admit she used to be my least favorite until recently. Until adulthood I firmly believed I was a Claudia. I’m creative. I like junk food. (Though I really cared about school). But after taking one of those amazing Buzzfeed quizzes I had to finally admit to myself I am a full on Mallory. I am a writer after all. She may be nerdy but she is who I relate to the most (even if as a kid I just wanted to be Kristy or Claudia. We can’t all be cool).
I’m guessing we’ll see Logan at some point (or least I can hope and dream). I feel his casting may be the most important of all. He needs to be the right amount of dreamy and southern.
Beyond the cast (which I will judge harshly), I’m curious how they will modernize it. How will cell phones and other modern technology will play a role? Does the BSC have a website? Can babysitter’s be scheduled online or through text? How can they justify meeting in Claudia’s room because she is the only one with her own phone line in 2019? Do the kids even care about kid kits? Don’t they just want screen time?
I guess our answers will come in time. In the meantime, remember, nothing is better than friends.
