Like countless other American girls, I read The Baby-Sitters Club book series. I was not obsessed, but I remember thinking this pack of middle schoolers who ran a baby-sitting business seemed pretty alright, especially that chick Claudia because she was "artsy."
So along comes Netflix, updating its supply of Shows You've Already Seen and Shows You'll Never Watch, with the single-season TV version of The Baby-Sitters Club. Yes, I will be part of the crowd who still labels The Baby-Sitters Club "awesome" in conversation, however after putting myself through several episodes, I now find I am confused and weirded out by the entire The Baby-Sitters Club concept. Allow me to explain.
