FYI the latest reboot is The Baby-Sitters Club. I seriously could devote an entire blog to reboots at this point, but that is NOT my vibe.
The original BSC series was my jam. It originated on HBO in 1990, but those of us without that cable-packaged movie-channel add-on luxury were lucky enough to catch it in reruns on The Disney Channel in the mid 90’s.
So with this reboot I’m having a mixture of feelings, even more so than usual, because the news of this reboot makes me feel simultaneously very happy and very old. I didn’t realize how old the original series was until this very point in time. I was like “wtf it’s not like as old as Magnum, P.I.” But the thing is, it is like as old as Magnum, P.I. *Insert light weeping noises here.*
But in the spirit of summer, I’m going to bury bummer feelings into a glass of rosé and review every damn episode of this magical series in order because it is TIMELESS and I’m just majorly bummed that reboots have killed reruns. If they reboot Cheers, I will lose my mother-effing mind.
That said, the original BSC series is available on Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix. Watch along, won’t you?
First post on Friday.
One thought on “Kristy and The Great Reboot Idea”
Yes! I love The Babysitters Club so much! I’m always looking for shows I can watch with the girls that aren’t straight up Nick Jr. fare. BSC original or reboot should fit the bill!!
