Quite a peach

Netflix released a new series to binge, “Ginny & Georgia.”


Nobody is perfect. Everyone has baggage, despite their attempts to forget their past. When Georgia Miller (Brianne Howey), tries her best to move on with life, it usually catches up to her in a humorous way in Netflix’s original show, “Ginny & Georgia,” released Feb. 24.

The bond between Georgia and her daughter Ginny (Antonia Gentry) is unlike most which is a nice change from the ordinary TV family. Since Georgia was only 15 when she had Ginny, the two are more like best friends than mother and daughter. Most teenage girls wish they have the bond these two do with their moms, adding an emotional attachment for viewers. Although Georgia had her children at a young age, she is a good example of a strong woman who provides for herself and her two children. 

The season covers a lot in its 10 episodes, and though it does it well, at times it is too much. The audience is forced to pay attention to the little details that go on in the show which sometimes appear the directors were trying to do too much with it. 

Another issue is that at times the teen behavior is unrealistic. A SnapChat video that Ginny’s boyfriend, Hunter (Mason Temple), sends her, is so cheesy that it became a meme on TikTok.

Although “Ginny & Georgia” has its flaws, it is worth the watch for a viewer looking for an event-packed TV show. Georgia’s strong female role and the show’s never ending series of events made up for the minor imperfections.
