Cute series - ok for 12+

Cute series! I think it's good for anybody 12+. There is mild swearing (bitch, hell) and a few sexual references but overall it is pretty tame. It is an easy watch.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (21 ):

Lana Condor and Zoe Margaret Colletti are a double delight in this frothy, smart series with a pleasantly lighthearted spin on the afterlife. Of course, supernatural powers that complicate teenhood are a grand old tradition in young adult narratives, particularly in film and television, where teenage witches and monsters abound, and gaining strange abilities is often a metaphor for a glow-up, as it is here. But the potent chemistry between BFFs Erika and Gia imbues the premise with fizzy life, and the pair are so lovable it's hard not to warm to them. In a great early sequence, the friends vow to leave behind their boring old selves and say yes to everything, and in short order say yes to dancing, taking shots, getting tattoos, jumping into a pool in their underwear, playing beer pong, and dancing on a table, enjoying it all with infectious heartiness.

Most of the series is in a similar vein, parsing a fine line between campiness and cliché and generally ending up on the right side thanks to sharp writing and good performances. As the season goes on, Erika falls into some Mean Girls-esque traps that mar the fun a little, and as viewers know from the start that Erika must eventually pass on (there's a body in the woods rotting under a dead moose, for one thing), we also know to expect some more serious scenes. But all in all, Boo, Bitch is lots of fun, with the cutest best friends this side of Booksmart, and that is saying something.
