Review of "The
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.
Romance, rivalry and radical mystery collide as a group of
teens attend a remote island sleepaway camp in this
suspenseful, supernatural drama.
