Ok, here to chat about Paper Girls on Amazon Prime if anyone has watched it! It's got everything - stellar young female leads, almost all (and strong) female characters (there are only a couple of male characters), very strange things happening, good versus evil, coming of age, no gender nonsense...I loved it!

Let me know your thoughts!

Omg, such am amazing show! I also binged the comucs yesterday, they are a bit different - but have the same vibe. Thoroughly enjoyed both. There's female friendship, diversity, funny moments and a gripping plot

I watched the first episode last night, I'm in. I was a bit hesitant because I absolutely hate The Wilds.

I just watched the first episode, and I loved it. It was nice to see 4 young ladies as a focus of a show where they aren't depicted as sexually wild like Euphoria.

I absolutely loved it! I binged watched the whole thing yesterday (I’m currently both injured and have Covid, so having a new show that was actually good to distract me was much appreciated). Now I’m just sad I’ll have to wait for more.

I’ll admit I was a bit hesitant to watch it at first, because I tend to avoid shows where the focus is on children (like Stranger Things). But I’m glad I gave it a try anyway. What I loved was that it never felt like performative girl power or whatever. All four of the girls have interesting stories by themselves, but I think their interactions with each other and their developing friendships is what really makes it. And of course it only works because the actual plot is great as well.

I am very excited for season 2! The young actresses were amazing and portrayed their characters with real depth. Very impressive!

Oh, yay, I saw an ad for this last night and wondered if it was good. I'm going to put this on my list! I have a trip coming up and might download to watch while in the air. <3

I highly, highly recommend it! It's also not super gory or anything (there is some violence, but it is mainly offscreen).
