A.V. Club

While TV shows for adults routinely feature characters making bad decisions without reflection or remorse, the tweens in this reboot work through their pain and learn from their shortcomings. Witnessing this kind of self-growth is inspirational, whether the viewer is a kid or an adult.

Isn’t an anachronism so much as a tonic. ... The show strikes a shrewd balance between earnestness and humor, freshness and nostalgia, fidelity to Martin’s beloved characters and awareness of how much has changed since her books dominated girl culture at the end of the 20th century.

The Baby-Sitters Club is not a heavy show — quite the opposite — but its attention to these issues is very thoughtful and reveals just how compassionate the baby-sitters are. The kids are all right indeed.
