The cast of The A List 

Review of "The A List" 9/1/18 by Suzanne
airs now on Netflix

This is a creepy show.  Some teens go to a camp on an island. Two of the girls are the "Queen Bee" popular types, so one of them, Mia, the brunette (Lisa Ambalavanar) thinks that she'll be the social butterfly of the group (not to mix my metaphors too much), but the blonde girl, Amber (Ellie Duckles) steals Mia's popularity and somehow manipulates everyone to choose her over Mia.

Things get very weird when Amber appears to jump off the cliff, but then she's fine. Is there a supernatural reason, or did Amber drug Mia? Or is Mia imagining things? This is what makes it creepy. It's not just your average mean girl show.

The writing is very good. It's narrated, which makes it sounds kind of like a comedy.  At first, Mia seems like the villainess of the show. She's not very likable. She's bossy and stuck up. However, we start feeling sorry for her as soon as Amber starts messing with her.  It's very interesting how things progress from being just a teen show into something much darker. You'll definitely want to keep watching. I know I will!



A LIST, THE (Netflix, New!) - The streaming service has closed a deal with Kindle Entertainment for the non-U.K. rights to the 13-part series, which "explores universal teen concerns of friendship, romance, loyalty and betrayal." Lisa Ambalavner and Ellie Duckles star in the drama, which "centers around Mia (Ambalavner), who arrives at an idyllic summer camp expecting to be Queen Bee, but the 'holiday of a lifetime' turns into a twisted nightmare with the arrival of the mysterious Amber (Duckles)." Writer Dan Berlinka and Kindle co-founder Anne Brogan are presumably the executive producers. (, 7/4)

From Netflix:

Romance, rivalry and radical mystery collide as a group of teens attend a remote island sleepaway camp in this suspenseful, supernatural drama.
Starring:Lisa Ambalavanar, Ellie Duckles, Savannah Baker; Creators:Dan Berlinka, Nina Metivier
