Summary: The spooky spirit of Halloween sweeps through Stoneybrook. Meanwhile, Claudia explores budding romance and struggles to connect with her parents. This is one of my favourite books in the series, they’re so silly and sweet and spooky all at the same time, and I’m thrilled to see it in this adorable show. Fingers crossed that I love it as much as I do the book. Also: Claudia narration? CLAUDIA NARRATION!
Say hello to your friends! But this is not that show, as cheesy and wonderful as it was, so let’s get started with the actual show. Summary: A creative concept comes to life as Kristy starts a club with her best friends — and a new classmate. But is she ready to be a team leader? Uh, that summary sounds terribly boring. I know they tend to be short, but good lord, that is dry as fuck. While we recap the books (the first 9 have been done so far) and we will recap the older tv show and the movie, I will not be recapping this tv show, mostly because it seems like the plots align pretty closely to the books. HOWEVER, I have looked forward to this show so damn much, and since this is where I bring my BSC nostalgia, I am going to share my thoughts. Written in real-time, edited only for spelling, adding information like actor names, and formatting for the site. I AM SO DAMN EXCITED, Y’ALL! IT’S FINALLY HERE! I CANNOT WAIT TO BEGIN. No more waiting. Let’s do this.
Wing recaps Making Out #11: Ben Takes a Chance by Katherine Applegate (and Michael Grant) and yells a lot about how people are not objects to own, goddamn it.
Wing recaps Famous Five #10: Five on a Hike Together by Enid Blyton and would probably kill you if you drank every time she said WHAT THE EVER LOVING FUCK.
Wing recaps Baby-Sitters Club #9: The Ghost at Dawn’s House by Ann M. Martin, and it is a sweet, kind, adorable semi-ghost story with a horrible lack of logic at one point. <3 Dawn.
Wing recaps Famous Five #7: Five Go Off to Camp by Enid Blyton and GOES BOOM. A LOT. WE HAVE REACHED INSUFFERABLE JULIAN AND SEXISM FOR ALL.
Wing recaps Making Out 8 Aisha Goes Wild by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant and fun, slightly creepy, love all the Halloween-horror-movie style plots WHAT THE FUCK AMNESIA PLOT WHAT.
Wing recaps Making Out #6: What Zoey Saw by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant, and oh my god, the drama THE DRAMA. (How is Jake my favourite guy?)
Wing recaps Baby-Sitters Club 7: Claudia and Mean Janine by Ann M. Martin and it’s all complicated family feelings all the time up in here.
Wing recaps Famous Five 4: Five Go to Smuggler’s Top by Enid Blyton and spends far too much time bored considering the book is filled with smugglers, secret passages, and animal attacks.
Wing recaps Baby-Sitters Club #5: Dawn and the Impossible Three by Ann M. Martin and is so damn excited to finally have Dawn Schafer join the BSC.
Wing recaps Baby-Sitters Club #3: The Truth About Stacey by Ann M. Martin and it is business competition and diabetes season in Stoneybrook.
