Julie and the Phantoms dropped on Netflix yesterday, and let’s just say it exceeded all of my expectations. After planning on watching one or two episodes, I ended up watching the entire season in one night, and I’m already waiting for a Season 2.
If you are a normal person who isn’t me, you probably didn’t watch this entire show the minute it became available. But here are some reasons why you should start watching it as soon as possible:
The music in this show is no joke.
It is filled with new stars who have some serious talent, like Madison Reyes, who plays the lead role of Julie.
The main characters actually look their age.
It has ghosts, which makes it the perfect show for the upcoming spooky season.
The characters have actual chemistry.
I mean, look at that EYE CONTACT.
It has the perfect balance of drama and comedy.
Madison Reyes’ (Julie) inspiration is Vanessa Hudgens circa High School Musical era, and that is something we can all agree on.
Just like Vanessa as Gabriella, these girls are serving some serious looks that are making me jealous of a 16-year-old’s wardrobe.
And they are seriously friendship goals.
The ghosts are from the ’90s, which makes me happy to get some millennial energy in a 2020 teen drama.
It has strong morals.
There is diverse representation.
Did I mention Madison Reyes’ voice? She has the voice of an absolute angel and has more talent in her pinky finger than I have in my whole body.
Finally, this show actually does musicals right.
