"Pay nba parker. I'm a producer here at the cut. But before this humble brag i was a film professor. And i obsessed about every minute beautiful and infuriating thing in film and television to be fair. I still do so. I was recently watching. The netflix. miniseries the queen's gambit because as a former chess club kid. I expected it to be my jam. So i was overjoyed and then befuddled to see the character. Joe lean the protagonists childhood. Bff from the orphanage and black girl. Savior extraordinaire whose entire purpose is to be labeled as difficult while sacrificing huge parts of herself so that the porcelain white girl can play chess and it felt all too familiar to me. It reminded me of this film. I loved as a kid called a little princess dealer. Decent thought i would die till i heard you talk about the magic. I grew up faithfully watching the one thousand nine hundred five version of a little princess by alphonso croissant about a rich orphaned white girl who ends up being a servant all girls school and spencer evenings in the attic with the orphan servant. A little black girl who shares in her daydreams in fantasies but unlike the queen's gambit for this cold where he comes from in a little princess both girls free themselves together and truly become princesses in lace and curls allow to grow up sisters. But still there is this disconnect. The black girls still feels like the friend on the sidelines. Even if she's spunky and nothing awful or bad happens to her. This was the case with a lot of the movies. I grew up on. They all had interruptions of the sweet black sidekick there was also lavender the best friend matilda. It's much better than being out there. And jesse in the babysitters club really an idea might be brilliant. And the most classic example for black kids of the ninety s was a grown man. Lavar burton as star trek. The next generation sweet brainy sidekick jordi la forge computer as we increased our power levels. Was there any counterreaction. Affirmative him but listen. I'm not here to complain. I'm just sort of navigating my way. Through this trope. It is not entirely a bad thing at all as a brainy spunky little black kid i loved these characters. I mean. I needed them. One of the first things. I noticed about the next generation is that they have shorty fords. I remember as a little girl. I had like a brown suede hip band. And i used to put it over my eyes. So i could be jordan forge. George soros outspoken introverted. He makes amazing friends. Went the android on this. And i was like. This guy is still gave the nerve babies though cool that is none other than the actress. Zelda harris. When she was ten years old she played one of these classic sidekick characters jesse the only black babysitter in the baby sitters club. I did not grow up reading the baby sitters club books. I read every single one of those books. Jesse was a dancer who always related to her kids. She learned sign language for one of the kids. She babysat and taught dance. Moves and the film adaptation of the baby sitters club was totally formative for me growing up. Zelda definitely plays the sidekick the supporting role to a host of white girls but she also stole scenes left and right dropping like flies. She kinda had to that was what she was given to work with. Not just in the sitters club but in every role she dishes for. I would be bassey token friend but not necessarily get to read for the lead over and over again. Zelda would hit this wall. She knew her potential by casting directors saw her as the bouncy token friend it starts to wear on you as a kid because you have the power nation. You're working in an industry that can make anything happen. You got competence muppets. Cgi and all this stuff going on who still getting very consistent. Message that you're here to support and so okay Yeah the cameras going to be. Set up right here. You're gonna stand on the side. I'm not sure if you're gonna be in this shot. Whoa having mechanic realization was intense. This realization was extra intense for zelda. Because she knew it didn't have to be this way. She started her acting career in the leading role. Her very first film was spike. Lee's crooked where she starred as troy maybe other people with mommy and scream and yell at you can't do. It wasn't all inclusive set with women and people of color where she had the starring role in black and brown film.

"They're more likely to be trusted in the sense that there are a lot of the concerns around having strange people in your home kind of dissipated when their kids and they're less likely to help create dommage. With these characters having one of the things that comes up in the series is the fact that because they're young. They don't drive and they can't stay out late and so they have to with the curfew issues when parents have to stay with to be outlay down, and that's something that will obviously continue to come up because they are still twelve, but the way that the club is presented. Is that for the most part? These girls are also part of this community in a real way the. The people that are hiring them are people who have seen them grow up, and so they're also not dealing with strangers in the same way that you might. If it was some big conglomerate, these are kids in their neighborhood. They're they're going to school with their own children and so a lot of thought you know perceived danger has kind of been eliminated. What is interesting to me? Too is the way that they don't necessarily directly talk about it except in that one episode with Don but. The way that them as babysitters allow other parents another woman in particular to do the work outside the home that they can't wouldn't otherwise be able to do if they didn't someone taking over that home and domestically. And I think that's part of what makes the show radical in a sense because it really locates that work at home as important work that it doesn't get done, really disrupts the rest of your life, and so they are providing essential function. Yeah, it's an interesting moment. In history I think to have a show about essentially hero babysitters because I think a lot of people are really just like you say. Kate really keenly aware of how important it is to have access to people who can help take care of kids in a way that's believable and trustworthy, so kate has convinced me..

"Think somewhat more inclusive I think they're still. Is a particular kind of girls story, but I do think they made some effort to kind of reflect a somewhat broader world. Yeah, yeah, and I also like that one of the ways that they grappled with the fact that it is still. A story of pretty privileged girls when the girls go to summer camp and Don Fomento a revolution when she realizes that some of the activities at Camp, cost extra and the camp is already expensive to send kids to, so she likes starts a strike slash revolt to ensure that all kids have access to all activities again. I think the way that that is presented is very accessible to twelve or thirteen year old. Who sees that and thinks the stuff that they're protesting? Maybe I haven't thought about it, but I m thinking about it now in the language of these twelve or thirteen year old girls that are doing it. The thirteen year olds are like leading. You know maybe I can lead things I care about. It was gently handled, but I think effectively handled and certainly nothing like that happened in the books that I can remember. I really enjoyed that because they do with some really difficult issues in this show in a way, that doesn't feel heavy or despairing, but feels accessible for kids who might be you know industries and curious in the same way to do their own research or ask some questions so that they might learn more about bigger issues. Maybe aren't touching their lives yet, but may eventually do so, and now they have a standing of issues like trans. Identity, you or internment that allows them access to other people's experiences that they may not have had access to befo. I was really pleased with Don in particular because you know, she's the shows little pro feminist and I really enjoyed the way she managed to be the member of the group who was I, suppose progressive is not quite the word. She still only twelve, but who was more open to different ideas that maybe we're not necessarily things that were coming up full girls who are living in what is essentially a pretty white suburb. An aunt surrounded by a ton of diversity, but she's bringing in these issues as someone who is you know coming in from California? They may point a ton and understands some of these things because they're not foreign to her in the same that the. The other girls and I really appreciated the way that they used her both as a girl of color and also someone who slightly foreign to the immediate setting as a way to introduce new ideas to not just the audience, but also to these characters. I do want to point people to a short documentary on Netflix that they've released. It's called the Claudia Kishi. Kishi Club, which is a group of Asian American kind of writers and people who talk about how important Claudia Kishi was to them as a role model growing up, despite also acknowledging that in the books there are things about the portrayal of her..

"Tricky babysit for which worked for a teenage girl, right like worked for someone growing up or preteen when I started reading them, because everything is sort of actually the same size when you're young, the big stuff and the little stuff and I think the show also does a great job of yeah of capturing that, so that's what really drew me to it is. I felt like they were about girls like me. Who cared about stuff that I cared about? This show capturing that same feeling, absolutely one of the things I hope we talk about the most today is who we think. The show is for the GROWNUPS or the kids. I. Think both and I think there's an argument to me made that they do both really really well, but Gosh I would love to be twelve and watching this show and watching. These smart funny industrious girls grow up yeah, in the world that they inhabit which they managed to make a very warm and comfy. Yeah, how about you, kate? What is your sitters club backstory? Well I did not have reading contests did spend quite. Reading these books. I mean. I'm just discovering that. They stopped. Publishing was ten. So it makes sense then that I spend a lot of like eight about eleven reading these books, if I moved onto like sweet valley, high right, I remember reading mom, and just feeling very attached to these characters I think as a kid. I was always a voracious reader like I. was the kid trouble? Trouble for reading when we were paying attention, but I love his books because they were as Katie, said girl centric, but they also gave them real problems and real responsibility. I think that's probably what imprinted on the most. They are dealing with issues that are real problems that adults still have to deal with with regards to child care and I think it really impressed upon me that. Just, because they're young, doesn't mean that the things that you are doing in your life on potent or have an impact on other people and I really enjoyed the way that the show captures I think probably even better than I remember from the books. There's a lot of stuff happening. That shows that they are finding their way in the world in a way that is interconnected to all the other people in their lives. It's just fantastic. I think at capturing Nazi mass from the Book Yeah, and we should mention you know they. They have kept a lot of the aesthetic of the book I have to say. There's a moment in the first episode toward the end when they're all sitting around in the bedroom, Christy grabs this red visor and puts it on and the minute I saw that girl put that red visor on my first thought was. That has to be a recreation of like important injury from the books, so I went and looked and sure enough. It's a recreation of the cover of the first book where she has a a red visor. So I think they have definitely tried to be really true to the aesthetics of the books, but you know we mentioned a bunch of the casting in my little kind of Intro, and they have tried to make. I think this group of girls somewhat more inclusive Marianne who is white in the boxes, biracial in the show, and is being raised by her dad. WHO's the one played by Mark Jackson and Ben also dawn? Who's played by so? She Gomez is white in the books and is Latina in this show, so they have tried to make that I..

"What's in your Wallet Capital One NA member, FDIC. Welcome back, you know in honor of the baby sitters club I'm here with a wonderful club of people joining us from her home in Takoma. Park Maryland. Is Writer Katie Presley? Howdy and with us from her home in Irvine California is Kate Young Welcome back Kate Hey so it's Katie Kate and Linda. New Babysitter. The lines are open to Orient Anybody who's not super familiar with this series and M Martin wrote the First Baby Sitters Club book. In nineteen, eighty six, it became the basis for a series that ultimately had more than no getting two hundred books published up until two thousand, they were wildly popular more than one hundred seventy five million copies imprint. The netflix adaptation is a ten episode series. Series for the most part. Each episode is from the perspective of Particular Girl Christie played by Sophie Grace. Is the Bossy one who started the club Claudia? WHO's played by Mona? Tomato is the cool wine Marianne. Who's played by me Baker is the shy one and Stacey who's played by Shea. Rudolph is the fancy one who has moved from Manhattan to the suburbs of Connecticut. They're also eventually. Eventually joined by Don who's played by so Ji Gomez! They all have stuff going on with families. Some of the parents are played by people. You'll recognize. Silverstone is Christie's divorced mom Marc. Evan Jackson. One of our favorites is Marianne 's very protective. Dad Rachel Shugart who's running this show and also worked on glow, and supergirl is clearly trying to keep the show very faithful to the field. Field of the books. I was not a major baby. Sitters club person, 'cause eighty six. I was slightly too old, so this missed me by a little bit. which is part of why I'm so happy to have Katie and Katie you're Katie you were babysitters club person. I'M GONNA say biggest question where because I'm in front of a microphone and I get to say things like that. But yes, I would say two great ideas happened in Nineteen eighty-six Christie's idea and the great idea of Katie Presley. who was born in Nineteen eighty-six? So I'm ready. and. Idea is the title of the First Book and her idea is creating the baby sitters club and I have to say. I have some questions about their business model. What will come back to that? Books Katie. This is going to reveal Marianne tendencies one of the things I liked. Is that the first half of the book of every book which first half the first probably two chapters? Introduce what the book is going to be about and then do a very formulaic rundown of every member of the BSE which meant that you could read them really really really fast so i. Have friends over and have reading contests to see who could finish a book faster. But I also was a babysitter. I grew up in a very idiotic could have been in Stony Brook, cul de sac where the kids were within two years of my age. I liked that the books were girl centric I. Liked that the issues that they faced blended. Big Issues and little issues, big issues about divorce and family and death and grandparents and illness, but also boy craziness, and which party to go to, and like Oh, those darn pike, kids, or so.

"No. One liked me middle school. By the guy I liked I asked him to a movie. Actually someone asked me on my behalf, and I definitely wouldn't have been allowed to go to the movie. But anyway he said No. Now. I'm stating my cousin so. Sliding doors on what on what could have been? Like all like what my like fourth grade boyfriend, who actually broke his arm like I wonder where? That's a story. With facebook I know where everybody is and a lot of them still live here so. It's like I know what happened to them. And I. Do know people I think I do know a couple that dated from the time they were. Start dated at fourteen and our married now. And externally troubling to me four days. Like Fourteen and twelve, fourteen, thirteen, very different to me, and then like fourteen, fifteen is very different, but like all of it is a loyal. It states troubling to me like I'm not okay. I. Mean Going Season Two. I could see like I have aunts down the season will be. It'll be pretty much exactly this with the later books. When they're in the eighth grade. Difference at my question is what will season three be like these axes again a job achieving making film with restrictions before they even do that ready like. Are they going to go into the ninth grade? Do we want to see them golf, book? Being high school have very different issues. Over, we want like a grade two point more eighth grade stories because I think we were saying like those six to ten. On seventh grade is kind of like this could go through the whole year like this theory is. Does this season did yeah, and then there in the eighth grade as we've said for like hundreds of books, so is that what we want from the show? It's a good question and I think the they're going to be limited just by the age of the actresses. They'RE GONNA be. They're going to be fifteen and sixteen. By the time they film a new season and you can't. Keep up the fiction that they're in eighth grade forever so I think. Thankfully, we're used to fifteen year. Olds playing much younger. We use it. So they can do is I can do it. But I don't think they will not for this could work. But it could work, but I don't think they will I agree with you, but I think that's what I love about. This series is that it's created for the first time in terms of adaptations onscreen of the baby sitters club. It's created by people who grew up on the books that you can tell that they really love this old material. They will like tangling of modern. When she came to the set like they badly wanted to do justice to this, I would actually trust new storylines in the hand, especially, because an Martin is actually a consultant and a producer on the show. I think that they could take to a really true place and I have. No problems with any of the updates they made I think that they did so well with. It was so true to the essence of these characters, while still making it relevant for today, and so keeping all the themes. As timeless, they've been, but again you know. For where we are that I trust them to, if it's GonNa go to the point where we we see them in ninth grade, which is different middle school. Then I think they could do well. I definitely I agree, and that that also the question like..

"Was the Brooklyn all. But well, thankfully, it's fictional. Still. If that cat was real, he'd also be dead by now. I. Think that's a Shannon. Anyway enough about the dead cats I do that also brings up that I look very much forward to Logan being incorporated into the yeah club, they did also introduce the junior baby sitters at the end which to me having babysitters younger than the man group is already just Jusuf Bridge too far for me and in my mallory is. Worst so I'm not looking forward to that, but we know that they're going to be a big part of anything moving forward. It's so funny that you say that because I read an article today about what an in modern things happened in the futures of the baby sitters club like Marianne Petite Sean. Christie owns a business issues like I. don't care what happens to maller. I. It's so funny like when they brought Mallory into the show I like saw her, and just like the first thing she said I was like Oh. This is not romy and the my sister's like that's Mallory. She's the worst. Child. I was like wait I'm. Mallory, who I actually I am as I am pretty annoying I. Love Mallory as as someone who is bookish and annoying I, certainly identified with Mallory, but I think a lot of us who have a touch of the inner mallory really feel conflicted about the fact that she's the but monkey of the baby sitters, club series, and a lot of us have trouble embracing that. I. Think Maybe we're all little, but monkeys sometimes. It's funny that you bring up. What happens to the babysitters as adults? Because there was a blog called the build and I think this is probably eight or nine years ago at this point, and the billfold was just like personal finance blog, the talked about like the economy and being a. Young millennial or young Gen xer managing your own money, and they did a series at it ended up spinning off into many other similar things they did a called how the baby sitters club does money and then each member of the baby sitters club. They talked about like the babysitter is now forty years old, and she's an adult, and she's managing her finances and wouldn't that look like what does she do for a job? And it was fan fiction it was it was obviously fan fiction, but to put a spin on it like this was really funny and the. It was really incisive pictures of what these people were as characters and then..

"And I loved how they incorporated the plot of like their neighbor, being a witch, but then it's like Oh. She's actually a witch and she's. Like the curse, she's trying to break the curse, but she's really just trying to go home because she's like. Oh i. just loved her so much such a little star. Loved the additions that they made to care in where she when when you first meet her, and they say yes. She's going through a spooky phase. I have seen little kids do that, and it is hilarious and chilling an awful and amazing at the same time, and they really. She's sitting there having a funeral for her doll. It is fantastic, and then she's a little bit different. The next time you see her which I think rings very true to what kids are like. One then at one point I think Watson's like yeah I? Karen is a lot. Just like you. You just imagine all the adventures that there little family has been on before encountering Christie's family. Like. I just love her so much. And it was such a good finale, the her for it to be like or explaining why she's obsessed with the curse, and he just wants to fit in, but she knows she's kind of weird. She says point she's like. We're all children of divorced. This is a kid who had been through it. And I think kind of having that sense of family and really embracing Christie as assistant having Christine Brighter right back here. She was so upset. The David Mark. Quarter has stepsister. Chrissy to embrace her, and watching their relationship is like really such beautiful, relying of the series on especially knowing how important she is to the box with. Syria so yeah, she's like. She started off his comic relief, but then ended up being as all the. Way there's no way to and who so important. Interesting I feel like they really cut the fat from. The source material and got right to the heart of what these relationships are and made them. More. Even know what the word is. I think maybe more real and more. More relatable. I think everybody has something to teach somebody else even when you're six years old. And I think that's a really good lesson to take out of this series as well. Yeah. I feel like we haven't talked enough about Corio somehow, even the. ICON. Lake who was expecting? The baby sitters club to really get you in your feelings about Japanese internment camps. That's not an. Acting, but I was so happy for it to come because I feel like that's something a lot of people. Don't learn about. An adolescent they never mentioned it and you know I don't want to be the person. That's always the book purist because I'm certainly not it was.

"The exercise bike. We have so. The Baby Sitters Club was very sad. State of affairs of meat on the exercise bike weeping. Like a sad a sad thing to look at. Yeah I cried throughout this whole episode. Yeah, no, when she told off. The doctors and Richard is right there and can see it, but she doesn't know I was crying, and then when she's like apologizing and he's like no. I'm so proud of you and you're reminded me of your mom. Then I I was weeping as well, and he just wants to be proud of him so many things. Yeah it was. It was really it was really beautiful and handled kinda perfectly. I also liked the pivot that it brings the. It brings the girls back together after they have this huge fight, because Marianne thinks to call Christie because Christie is the person that that she the only person she can reach in the person that she knows we'll be able to help her. Out of that situation I thought that brought them back together in a way that the book really was not good at bringing them back together. It's like Oh. Yeah, we got over it. Yeah and I was looking up as I couldn't really remember I was looking up some of like the synopses of the earlier books, and in the actual book version of this and teams like everybody was being. Very mean. And, like stacy calls them like small town losers basically unlike like. It was. It seemed like it was a much more toxic moment for the club in the books than it was in the show. They can't. They can't be some as like they had. The whole thing with critic. Can Green Beans Maryanne I'm Marianne like made the thing the thing about her dad, which was a lot, but I think like what the show does so well is. Kids, site, anyone a relationships can have fractures, and they have these arguments, and then like they do realistically make.

"It's like what a cutie. Yeah it's really hard to comment on the cuteness of a twelve year old boy. When you're you know almost thirty. It's the thing where we're like. He's so cute as a child as a literal child is. Seeing baby, you're like Oh cute baby like. I don't think anyone would confuse it as anything else. Even. Thinks, prince charming, which is exactly how you want to end this so much good commentary in terms of like. Why are you wasting your time with this totally average guy? At school dances are just more opportunities for men to disappoint us. And then we spent a whole lifetimes making excuses for it like loved all of that. Because when you're will like I. Don't remember thinking that. When I was twelve, I didn't know yet. How could? He was a lot of like Oh. My God he is completely average. Twelve year old boy is the moon and the stars, and he's my prince charming, and that's what I know about men and I kind of love that undercutting which would come from like a Christie who seen her mom get hurt? Marianne I don't know where she had negative. Male role models percents to stacey about the average guy. Is this a little bit more realism than suddenly? I had when I was twelve. which is pretty cool. The books really badly prepared you for because of the boys in the books are all like they're these unattainable great things, and they're the ultimate prize, and they're going to treat you well. When when they finally like you back and a boy ever liked me back when I was twelve, and they were all emotional jerks anyway, so I didn't need that in my life, but babysitters club taught me that I. Sort of did and I'm glad that the series is not pushing that agenda. Disney had already done its damage by the time I go to the baby sitters club. I'm gleaning maybe. Yeah. There's there's a lot more content out there to have caused damage for people a our age than just make an easterner on. Sweet Valley high was way.

Arrive as part of revision innings of a historical stuff in Hollywood I will say though that that does not prevent the serious from being deeply nuanced and layered, and addressing some very complicated topics in ways that remain wholesome and jade actually wanted to ask you about this because I think that one of the deeper contexts of the episode that you wrote. embeds it into history in a way that I I have. No doubt is a little novel to the show, and that is the backstory of Mimi and I wonder and again. Maybe this is where the crossover with the terror occurs. Off. What what led you to to delve more deeply into meetings, backstory, and then invoke men's Dr and the incarceration of Japanese Americans. How does how did that play within the context of the story? And when you raised assuming you're the one that I kind of raised that idea of bring that forward. How did that play in the room and as you shared it out with producers? So it. Added, definitely was not the one who came up with that is actually really you know we? All the other writers in the room and I we came in kind of already knowing that that these characters would be you know that that Marian biracial that tabby Latina.

"And you know this you mean scene and kind of the early days of social media and I started noticing all these asian-american creatives in particular talking about Claudia, and how meaningful she was to them so I really feel like it was this thing of you know? Like millennials, coming of age and talking about the media that had been really meaningful to them or like maybe early millennials late Gen xers not really now regime, but people who would read the baby sitters club books as kids. Coming into their own has creatives in making work about the stuff. That was really meaningful to them, and that's actually where the seed of the documentary came from was not just. The idea of making something about his character that I personally have loved but talking about her impact on basically a whole generation of people. We should give fills. Book covers a shout out here to. Yes, that was also a big part of it. You know wave of Claudia appreciation that was. I feel like a kind of. A weird. I've become a weird like next. Claudia Kishi like people tag me and clinic. Kishi stuff like all the time now because. I'm kind of obsessed with that I weren't making those. The first time it was just an idea that popped into my head. Honestly it was. It was the my memory of that book. Claudia out, Claudia that. Was My memory of that image of Claudia outside the door at these three little blonde kids like. Corn. As I said in the documentary, these trump looking kids was it was definitely Ivanka Donald and Eric. Chatting there. But that just that memory was there and I was like what if you like retitled that you know to what it was like? There's something a little more what you were thinking, and and also like you throw in a little bit, vulgarity and mix of funny it's. Cloudy in these races Los, and that's what is actually about like cloudy, and these race little shits is about these. Was about the babysitters club confronting a rare moment like racism. You know so. And then that got me rolling, and then you know that that that particular one took off and then the next day I was thought about. It's more like. Can I do it again and then I? You know in the next day I did it again so by the end of the series. There's now there's about like. Like ten or eleven of them so. Can I. Can I actually know that? Again as sort of that outsider looking in. The inroad the sort of gateway into Claudia appreciation that was these covers really highlights something. I think that was unique about the character itself that in watching the series now in watching the documentary around key. She is equally highlighted that there really weren't a lot of Asian American characters in popular culture, even in that time ten years after I was I being supposed to mass media about Americans right. Where Asian characters acknowledged.

"It's funny because I've never. I've never really like interrogated why? I'm clearly I fall out of the demographic of what the series were originally aimed towards. But I look back at era. Fourth it was fourth grade when I first started reading them and. and. That was That that year I, I moved to Newtown. I mean still within the barrier, but I had a new school new neighborhood and had to start over with new friends, and and I read in the library a lot because. Making. New Friends was kind of slow going process for me. At the time and I read a lot like. Which is why the babysitters books like fell into my orbit because it was just like everybody's reading these they're always there. They're ubiquitous and so. I started reading them and then You mentioned the world building, and that's that's so e immerse yourself in. You know you jump in there, and there's so many books and so. It's like it's like watching like a relief like a series of TV series really like and are comfortable with the characters characteristic not. And then but I think also it was the friendships I mean just seeing this like group. Form around like a cause, but then also like forming their friendships, and like you really sort of appreciate. The characters, their lives and their connections. You know so. And then honestly. The I never recognized Claudia for what she was at the time wasn't on. It wasn't until years later when I started really working at an examining like. How devoid of Asian representation there was in the media, and really thinking about that, and this is like years later. Recognized Haughty was like such an icon you know, and so after that. I had this renewed kind of respect for that character and. Obviously have dedicated a great deal of billy hours to sort of lifting that up. I feel like times well, let's let me that's my question actually because. It feels like there's like obviously. There is a sort of baby sitters club renaissance, but there's been especially like a Claudia Kishi like. Appreciation that has happened within the last couple of years that I. Feel like. I hadn't seen before you know. I think. For me, it was kicked off by hume sack mini comic. you know she she? She made this this amish to clutter Kishi. and it's so great But that was the first time it was a couple years back and I realized I think he's like ten years ago and when I saw it, I realized like. There's a bunch of people who. who also really appreciate Claudia in the way that I do and and I and I think that we have felt a little bit isolated before that, but now it's been. Outright. Maybe. Maybe Su? Who made a whole documentary about? It can talk about NEPAD. I mean around that time in the early twenty tens. was what I also started noticing. It I feel like it was like the height of the blogosphere. There is this blog that was what Claudia war that that literally went through all the books and just wrote down every single out there that Claudia war. No good. I consulted it frequently during during production..

"Looked and fell in her family, looked and felt like me, and then opening up and expanding that world it was just a group of girls who incident of chasing after boys or you know fighting over really petty things were really united in this love for each other and this female friendship, and it was really empowering at a young age I like pretty much. Every other girl I knew tried to start our own failing bad maybe. We never got any clients, but I made the business cards, and there is something really magical about that to believe you could do anything at the age of like nine eleven, and then get stamped down right up immediately, but it was because while. Yeah, this is Jane I think for me. It was also kind of two fold like I remember I remember reading the Bug and Claudius character coming up, and just feeling this like pin a shock that there was an Asian girl who was a main character who was really cool and fun and artsy in had close and wasn't. Like wasn't conflicted or upset about her ethnicity, which is often the way that? You know non white characters were presented to us, so I remember how happy I was kind of see that, and then also I loved that the baby sitters, club books and so much process. Like one of my favorite. Or my favorite books was where I came up with the kid kids, and there were there mutilated so many details. Have, a decorated the boxes. All things that like each girl put into their own Yeah, I just I loved stuff like that. Yeah, I mean. I'll say I felt like. You know! On a large scale, the same series hub books like as a series. It was hegemonic. You know if you've got the scholastic book. Club The flyers in the library like it was a phenomenon, and actually it's really interesting because I think. The world building was very sophisticated for like a young reader. At the time and it really was extended universe, you know if you think about the main series than the little sister bucks and the mysteries, and all of these different things it was. You know the world willing was sophisticated enough to kind of support that kind of like huge universe of storytelling, and so there were so many different entry points for people to to see themselves in the series. And then I I also had that like paying a recognition when I opened the book, and it really was like okay. Here's this cool. Fashionable creative loves JUNK FOOD ASIAN AMERICAN GIRL character. I was like God. It's check check check every single thing, but I have been more and have not been finding because jade said you know a lot of the of course often Asian characters just were absence completely, or their sidekicks are stereotypes, and then even in the sort of more. Sensitive content that was was censoring. Ince's of characters color. It was often Abou- you know suffering or overcoming great hardship, and I think also growing up in a very white town like Nyah and not having a lot of Asian Americans around me. It was really. revelatory to see this very empowering, self assured. Vision of of. Being Asian American girl..

"But it's good to start thinking about that professional art critic at a children's art show. Yep No. That's the thing though I. That feels right. Even if it does seem like way too much, it's like yeah, it is. It is way too much and yet that's still happens the my favorite thing about the art show besides the fact that the art was actually all interesting. I liked it. Was the the babysitters dawn. Remember who else just like barely peeking around the corner. When Claudia is talking to whoever crushes I, WanNa say maybe Jordan I could be. might have that wrong, and they just sorta like off. She's useless what she come up. Like 'cause. It's just in the back. You can see it in the back of the frame, but they just they don't do the standard TV like poke your head out, but it's really like half your body, so the audience can see them overseeing it right. They just like have part of their heads around the corner. It's very if I felt very appropriate like public. Something that he would actually see kids doing as opposed to the over heightened. Please notice this version that I've seen in other shows before, so there are. detailed. Like this character forces that actually really appreciated. The felt really lived in. Yeah No, absolutely so yeah, so we're onboard with listeners. You have any other final thoughts on this or young people should seek it out. So two quick final thoughts. I tweeted this in I. Think it's were saying out loud. Is that I I? Appreciate the Baby Sitters Club, teaching the youth synergy really early on. because. There's an episode that has an unintentional. The floor is lava reference. Which is just kids shouting at dawn, the floor is lava I. Think it's Dawn that the floor is lava which I. That is excellent, but then there's a whole. Small riff about them making a queer eye joke, including that involves Richard going. They're not here, are they? Yeah using the queue was great I really enjoyed that and. Then, they use the music cue in the episode and. Okay the youth need to learn about synergy early and I appreciate that Babysitter's Club is here to do that for them, but no this is. This is very good. I think it's great if you have kids that are like in this age demographic And I think it's generally pretty fun. If you're not in that age demographic McCartan or both in our third mid mid thirties, and watched it like you, basically over the course of the weekend, and we both had a very good time with my partner, who is a little more familiar with the source text also. We did a lot, so we had a lot of fun, but yes no. If he feels frustrated by any of the girls, really just power through the the two part, finale and relish. The outsider perspective on all of this. Poor poor. Camp leader. Yeah when she's like, it's not fair. She's like the world isn't fair. You must know this right like this can't be the first time you're finding that out right. Richard will get more. That's what happens is is what it is. It sucks. It's how the world works yet delightful very fun. Yet I it's very vengeful because they shift perspective with each episode so that that makes it. Nice and smooth you could stop piece it out, but I think actually for me. It probably works best in like a few episodes chunks it easy to lose the momentum if you just wash like one and then stopped. And if you watch it into your not being in the first episode. Power, because like at least give it at least to the second or third, because I first is great. However I do think they sell last thought I do think they sell the whole like landline thing because they're handing out flyers to the community like with a phone number on it. It can't be a a like eleven year. Olds home personal cell phone number. That would be very bad, so I think they did a good job of justifying like A. we have this extra landline that just comes with our thing that nobody uses which is such a great perfect detail, because it's so goddamn king true. Absolutely one hundred percent. To share a personal information on social media, and also, that's not a great idea, which is a hundred percent true so yeah I think all things considered. This'll department pretty well. We have some fun so. I look forward to what the show will do. In its second season I had this first season and let's Let's get Kevin Jackson Emmy nomination even executive. Get One, but it be cool. It's not gonNA. Happen for this, but as well as some.

"We're back with the televised. This is Kay calls leaked onto the have Kirk Patrick and this week of the DVD shelf because I assumed with the help with all the reception. I assume this shows getting renewed though that has not happened this now limitless situation this. But I'm calling this. The the season's not the show 'cause I'm confident. L. Back. We're talking about season. One of Netflix's the baby sitters club, which is of course adapted from the series of novels, I think there was has at least one other like filmed version of this as well TV. Or movies or something, but I have not watched them, did you? Did you read it in baby, sitters club books. I'm sure I. Read One at some point, but I was much more. The give me all of the the fantasy and sci fi and murder mystery, please kid I was not reading the baby sitters club s kid. so no I didn't read any of the baby sitters club. Like passably aware of it socially by like vaguely recall it being pleading around by the time I was the third or fourth grade, even though the started in nineteen, eighty six so was too when it originally launched. so, but I never run it. This is not the first adaptation. There was a short run. Like thirteen ten episodes series on HBO back in, like Nineteen Ninety. That was also. This was also an adaptation I. Don't know anything about it. It's not on HBO Max. So I don't know what I'm supposed to do about that Yeah, so my extent of knowledge about the baby sitters club is that it is deeply important to a number of people. Our Age people in their mid to late thirties, and probably a little younger is in definitely younger But I have absolutely no connection to it whatsoever so prior to taking a buzzfeed quiz I was unaware of if I. Was Kristy Claudia or Maryam or dawn? so I had to like take quiz to find out I turned out to be Christie which doesn't seem right, yeah. But they were basing it on the net flicks version. Maybe I should take a quiz about the books. Yeah I don't know enough to to know who I should be which when I am. And I don't know enough to say which you should be, but I don't think you're Christie. You are definitely Christy I have elements of Christie I feel like but. I'm not I'm not total. So yeah, I would go more Marianne for you I think that's probably fair I. Think have is probably fair. which they're, they're all pretty great. I actually do enjoy a lot like. They're all annoying, but they're also all pretty fun. Which I think is an important balanced to strike. If you want to feel in any way realistic when depicting teenagers, and just people so yeah, so what I'm. Hearing! Is that you are not one of the babysitters you're. The camp counselor had. Down there so many times. Oh, my God! Hearing So. Yeah. Yup. We'll get there so each episode is based on one of the books. If I've read any of them I don't remember them well enough to know if ready these books but I thought it was a smart format This has been really a like immediately latched onto praised passed around and the I think for me. Actually, it was a bit over hyped. Because what I keep seeing people talk about. Is that it didn't have to go so hard and did and so here for it right is basically the gist I beginning and so I think the sitters club while I did actually really enjoy. It had a lot of folks that I watched it in an afternoon. Or like a day. I think if you go in expecting it to be a really good show. You will go. Okay Okay and if you go in expecting it to be a cheesy like they're not going to do justice to the source material estimate, you have a connection to it kind of thing then you'll be pleasantly surprised because of the decisions that they make around were not just GonNa do that. There's so much nostalgia It's really going for a certain comfort TV kind of vibe. It's very safe. Right all the stuff which is appropriate for I. Think for notation of this series. If I from what I've read, people who are more connected to it, but it because it was getting so such high praise when I watched the first episode of like what are what has everyone talking about it was. Third Fourth Fifth I started to see more of like Okay Okay Yep I'm on board I I enjoy the characters anyways, I was I was so ready to come into this recording, and just be like it fine, and fortunately after finishing the season. I think it is decidedly better than fine. But I, just a little concerned that some people will hear all the buzz, and then watch the first couple, and then just go back. And Stop Watching or just assume that they're missing something, or it's not for them when actually it continues to grow in the first batch of episodes and really hit it stride around like mid season I don't think it'll be a controversial opinion here on the television, but. Best Character Best Performance Marc Evan Jackson. Is Marianne staff right? This is where I'm at. I mean I very much. Agree with you A-. But second-place. Okay Kevin Maher Kevin Jackson because I really think that everyone. Cross the board has done a really poor job of recognizing the very excellent work done by Sophia read against Ganor candidates. Who Plays Karen? WHO's the single battle after on show right Karen for life. She needs her own spinoff which she actually gets in universes. The little baby sitters club. Karen Rider Die Okay I can sign that I'm on board now. Where did you fall? But this show, so I'd case. It wasn't clear I did end up. Really enjoying it a lot I do recommend the show it was a second. One of my students out you know about like what did you do this weekend? Like well, there's some show. The baby sitters club is like I watched all the like. It Sunday. It came out on Friday I was like Oh yeah, I was working. I was working Wi-. Yeah make better life choices. She's like we watched a couple so clearly I enjoyed it, or I wouldn't have watched it all in a day, but I did. I'm curious how you felt about about about in with all this buzz around it. May Be. More than I did. What did you think so? I think it's like a to hold. Kind of situation I think that on the one on one fold is like I said, this is a franchise. It's really important to a number of people who were also now old enough to be writing about television professionally, which I think makes a big difference in a lot of the buzz I, think the other thing that makes a big difference in a lot of the buzz is that? We don't review. Allowed Family Center television particularly Family Center television like this. So when something that is also live action and established Ip comes out, and does this really kind of diversity for word topic driven, but not special episode driven sorta approach. It's suddenly mind-blowing. Any number of people who maybe don't watch a lot of animated programming that is extensively targeted to children, but really isn't. Like. Family back when it was ABC family, so yeah, there's the fosters a bunch of shows that are doing this kind of thing that we're also good. Correct I mean like I think I do very much feel like the fosters walked and then ran into a wall, so that sitters club could not run. Wall. And that's that's the sort of thing. Even though I will acknowledge that like foster is operating in a very different vein as a much heavier like family melodrama and the sitters club is definitely more in a sitcom vein. Both of which have their marriage in both of which are good ways of exploring any sorts of topics, writer die again succumbs and succumb formats. But I think that's sort of like the thing that's happening with a lot of the response to this. Temporary expectations to certain degree of. Some people I know are very Masala about franchise. And then some people were reading were just like. Maybe, don't tap into family programming, necessarily as much or are they just kind of forgotten like that? The foster is a thing. What was a thing or they just don't watch Steven Universe or they do, but it's not in the conversation. Eric Yance, whereas this is. Again established Ip with a number of high profile like adult actors in it, who in turn Bacon to other nostalgic things very specifically. At least you silverstone and Mark Feuerstein..

Disney Villains Series 'Book of Enchantments' Coming to Disney+

"Speaking of Disney in their streaming services. Let's talk about something they announced yesterday, and they're going to have a TV series on Disney. Plus that focuses on the Disney villains. Then what do we know? Yeah. It's called book of enchantment, and it is a regional series coming to Disney. Plus, I think it's going to be live action. I don't think they technically specified that in the report. But it it seems very very likely that it's going to be a live action. Show. This is a new drama that's based on author Serena Valentino's book series, which in the past is focused on characters like the evil Queen from Snow White the beast from beauty and the beast Ursula from little mermaid Melissa sent from sleeping beauty and mother Gotha from tangled. So the show apparently has been in the works for months and somebody named Michael sites men is leading the charge. He's going to be the writer producer on this series. He for those of you who may not recognize his name is also spearheading the John Grisham universe over a Hulu. So he's working on shows like the rainmaker and rogue lawyer. But yeah, we've got a Disney villains show in the works and Peter. I know you you as a big Disney fan could probably speak to like the popularity of these characters over all of their hugely popular. If you go to the Disney parks like Disney there, there's tons of fans of just the Disney villains. I just wonder in in, you know, obviously, Disney has tried to use that for their. Benefit in movies. You know, they've had movies about some of the Disney villains like Melissa sent. But something have like those movies called like descendants or something where I was going to say like, isn't that just a Disney channel movie, I've never actually seen any of those? I'm assuming that this is going to be of the same quality of that. It's technically the descendants are about the kids of the villains in these this show is going to be about the villains themselves. But yeah, very much seems like basically except expensive. And also like they Disney's done something like this little similar with once upon a time, which is on ABC, which is a Disney network in that that's another show that sorta takes live action fairytale characters and puts them into new context. So this is very familiar territory for them. And I feel like it's just another way for them to like boost the merchandising of these these Dylan characters.

"Move onto Disney. We'll talk about Disney. There was it was revealed yesterday that they, you know, since buying FOX they have already acquired a majority stake in Hulu, and now they're trying to acquire a Warner meaty worm media's ten percent stake. Ben, what do we know? Yeah. So right now, technically Disney owns thirty percent of Hulu and FOX owns thirty percents. As soon as the Disney FOX deal officially goes through which technically hasn't happened yet. But apparently only days away from actually being fully finalized. Disney is going to own sixty percent of Hulu Warner media owns ten percent right now and Disney is currently in active discussions to acquire that ten percent stake. So basically what this means is Disney is is going to be using Hulu as a home for programming that is aimed at adults. We know that Disney plus is coming up later this year that is going to have mostly family friendly stuff. You know? There's gonna be some Star Wars and marvel stuff on there as well. But you know, that that's going to be like, the Disney branded stuff that protects the brand that they've been building for decades who on the other hand will be a place where they can put, you know, some stuff that maybe a little bit more, quote, unquote edgy. Yeah. And that will allow them to sort of spread their digital wings further across the internet, and, you know, build more subscribers and increase their business all across the world. But I think we already kind of -ssume that no new that. So like, what is them owning ten percent? More of who mean? Well, I think they're also actually they they've been talking about I guess floated the idea of buying out Comcast's sharer as well. And Comcast would own the remaining thirty percents. What looks like Disney, you know, ultimately wants to own the entirety of Hulu. I'm guessing. That since Warner Brothers. Also, Warner media is about to launch their new streaming service. And they only own ten percents of Hui, right now, I'm guessing they they would rather just cut ties with Hulu because they know that Disney is going to be majority owner anyway and devote their energy to their own streaming service and not really, you know, have two fingers in two different pies. Why does Disney one all of Hulu? I don't know.
