Honestly, it feels like yesterday when I would sing the theme song to the 1990 tv show version of the Baby-Sitters Club! These books and the show always gives me nostalgic feelings because they are the reasons why I fell in love with reading in the first place! I was so obsessed with the Baby-Sitters Club growing up that I remember being in the fourth grade and begging my parents to start my very own Baby-Sitters club and of course they thought I was deranged because I was only ten-year-old at the time!
When the Baby-Sitters Club movie came out in 1995, I was fangirling majorly especially since my favorite character Dawn of the Baby-Sitters Club was played by Larisa Olenick! At the time, I was a dedicated fan of The Secret World of Alex Mack and I would watch it religiously every week!
The announcement was just released this Tuesday, March 5th that they are going to be doing a reboot of The Baby-Sitters Club with a ten-episode series on Netflix! I am glad they are doing a tv show reboot of The Baby-Sitters Club because although I loved the series as a kid, it was a show that was very much in its own time and the acting/writing was like a tacky afterschool special. It has been stated that the episodes will tackle modern issues that teen girls face today and I am so excited that they are promoting female entrepreneurship to inspire young girl everywhere!
