#FeaturedFriday: Most Popular Girls in School

MPGiS-sm.jpg

If you ever wanted to know what “Mean Girls” would be like if Barbie and her friends starred in it, then “Most Popular Girls in School’ would be the answer to your prayers. And yes, this post will contain profanity.

“Most Popular Girls in School” is a stop-motion web comedy show that follows a squad of cheerleaders in Overland Park, Kansas and the life they live. It’s pretty much how one would assume Barbie and Ken would act like if they were alive. It’s pretty fucking great. There is swearing. The best part is the dolls are swearing and being bitchy. I’m pretty sure this show is a documentary on Barbie’s life.

Shit goes down in Kansas. Like there is blood feuds, pregnancies, mercenary cheerleaders, and elaborate schemes to take down their enemies. At one point, there was very well down shootout. Yeah, I didn’t know that cheerleaders do all that shit. They even take down hipsters and rip a little girl’s arms off.

The writing on the show is extremely well done. The comedy is well planned out and you can really tell how much thought went into writing and creating this show. “Most Popular Girls in Schoo” also provides with so many one-liners. The one-liners are so good that there are so many memes with them. Most of the show’s line has been made into memes, that’s how good the writing is.

The characters all stand out from each other. There’s not one character that you will forget about. Sure, there will be characters that will stand out more so than other like Brittnay Matthews. She’s pretty much the standout character of the series. She’s my spirit animal. Her bitchiness is so well done that you will love her for it. Here’s a taste of Brittnay. She’s reading a viral email:

Isn’t Brittnay lovely? If I had to give it a TV rating, it would TV-MA. But it’s well worth watching because it’s just so great. I recommend it so much, that here’s a supercut of all the insults, which you should memorize and learn by heart:

The fifth season will be starting this summer, and if you would like to enjoy this show, check them out on YouTube. This will literally be the best decision you will ever make.

WTF is going on in Canada?

dncs3-sm

This past Friday, “Degrassi Next Class'” latest season came out on Netflix worldwide and it returned to it’s roots of “going there.” In the previous incarnations of the popular series that makes Teens in Canada look like they should have been hugged more as children, “Degrassi” pushed the envelope when it came to what was featured on children’s television. This season really did go there and was in your face. This will contain slight spoilers because it’s going to be hard not to relieve things.

First thing first: Is this what is really going on up there? Is this what Canadian youth does? Is this what any Youth do? It’s only been a few years since I was a teen but damn Daniel, that was the most intense episode I have seen in a while. If this is what youth go through then why aren’t we, as adult, doing something to help? Also, why aren’t the parents being actual parents? Also, why isn’t Canada stepping in to monitor all the chaos that is going on at Degrassi Community School? It seems like there’s always problems there and they don’t live in what would be considered a “dangerous” portion of Toronto. So many unanswered questions.

The main plot of the season was dealing with the aftermath of the big bus crash that rocked the school at the end of season two. This event, like Rick shooting up the school or some gang violence that makes them all end up wearing a poor excuse of uniforms (You’re a freaking multi-million dollar franchise that has been on the air since the 80s-I expected better than tan pants and multi-colored polos), was the main arc for several characters this season-both big storylines and little storyline. It helped flesh out some characters that weren’t introduced from the incarnation before Next Class.

But this season was just insane. They had abortions, overdosing caused by depression and suicide, homophobia through religion that wasn’t Christianity, dealing with a love one being in coma and unsure about future, how to cope with traumatic experiences, affairs, and acceptance of others and self is just some of the major topics covered in the season’s ten episode, which is a lot. Like it was car crash and you couldn’t turn away. This was in a good way as well. I honestly want more.

So far, each season has been building off of each other and it’s working really well for the series. Overall, this is the best season of Degrassi, both “Degrassi” and “Degrassi Next Class,” we have seen so far and it’s refreshing. But seriously Canada, what is going on up there?

The pride and joy of Disney

Oh, it’s the nostalgic sequel series that started it all. “Girl Meets World” is literally the best thing now on Disney Channel.

The show doesn’t take itself too seriously. It takes jabs on “Boy Meets World” as well as itself. It’s not as corny nor “kid orientated” as the shows now on the Mouse. It acknowledges the fans that are watching to see what Corey and Topanga are up to with their children.

It’s honestly the best part of the show are the jokes. They are on fleek. They use comedy to tackle so many tough topics and its amazing. The actors are also very good. They picked a very talent cast. I thought I was going to hate that kids actors because let’s be real-kid actors aren’t know for being very good.

Overall, the show is one I recommend because one of the better shows on TV right now.

Shows that definitely should have been left alone: The Powerpuff Girls

Recently, the cartoon network decided to get on the bandwagon of remakes and made a new series of “The Powerpuff Girls.” Apparently they didn’t read my article on the subject before  they did it.

The show features all the original actors from the 1st series, but not the powerpuff girls original actors. So the nostalgia aspect but it’s quickly lost once you see the opening credits are the same, and the girls talk. The stories are also watered down and not as good as the 1st series. It’s very reminiscent of how “Teen Titans Go!” was like the original series but was instead a watered down story that didn’t even do the original justice.

I would have rather watched “Powerpuff Girls Z” than this show. That show wasn’t trying to be like the original but rather its own take on the characters. That I can respect but this show is just a sad attempt on the series. If you are looking for nostalgia, the original is on Netflix and you could probably find them on YouTube.

Hopefully, this is the last time I have to write this. JUST LEAVE THE POWERPUFF GIRLS ALONE!
