I like the way the second season of Ginny and Georgia, whether intentionally or not, crushes any remaining tired comparisons to the Gilmore Girls under it's heel like some discarded chili cheese fries from Luke's Diner. This season also dispenses with cute hideouts behind loose floorboards … Continue reading GINNY & GEORGIA S2: Stomps Out the GILMORE GIRLS Comparisons, Gets Darker, Messier, More Interesting

Five Garvey sisters posing with a hearse that says Just Dead in the back window. Eva, Grace, Bibi, and Ursula are posed around the car and dressed in black. Becka is wearing a red sweater and sitting on top with her arms open wide. Above are the words BAD SISTERS. Family. It's a killer.

BAD SISTERS (2022): An Exquisitely Good Show

CW: Some episodes have flashing lights. All episodes have gaslighting and abuse. Bad Sisters is an exquisitely good series filled with the darkest humor, dazzling writing, a pitch perfect soundtrack, excellent acting, delicious characters, and a deeply cathartic ending.
