**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**
Boo, Bitch released on July 8th 2022 on Netflix with eight episodes available to stream now. The comedy series stars Lana Condor, Zoe Margaret Colletti, Mason Versaw, and Tenzing Norgay Trainor. Each episode runs for approximately 24-26 minutes.
Two best friends attempt to make their senior year a memorable one, but things don’t go according to plan when one of them winds up being a ghost.
Here is the trailer:
Boo, Bitch is very much Booksmart meets Mean Girls with a supernatural edge, but does it do enough to find its own identity separate from these films? Let’s find out…
Spooky fun concept.
I really loved the premise of this show. Supernatural comedies are popping up left and right and they are all bringing something unique to the table. Even though this series is about ghosts, it was also about growing up and finding your place in life and I think the series made a valiant attempt to explore all of these themes.
Highlights a genuine friendship.
The best part of the series was this friendship and I appreciated that it felt real. It elevated the show in a lot of ways. I thought both of these characters were fun on their own, but the friendship between them was what made them more interesting and it kept me emotionally invested.
Not that original…
This series really borrowed a lot from Mean Girls and Booksmart, but I’m not sure that it ever really found its identity separate from these films, although it did try with its twist reveal.
A lot of the humor didn’t land and the dialogue was really painful at times. I’m not sure that teens actually talk this way and it felt forced and awkward.
So am I in or out?
I’m in about 75 percent…
I loved the premise of this show and the friendship between Erika and Gia was worth sticking around for, but I’ve seen this type of show before and I’m not sure that it ever found its real identity.
That being said, it’s still a quick binge-watch if you’re looking for a new supernatural comedy to watch.

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…
It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
