Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix Stream Team and occasionally receive access and goodies from Netflix to facilitate my posts. But everything I write is my own.
Project MC² is a new live-action Netflix original aimed at tweens (mostly girls). Season 1, which consists of only three episodes, introduces us to super-smart teenage spy McKeyla McAlister and three equally super-smart, science-loving girls she reluctantly brings into an all-woman spy organization, NOV8 (Innovate), which just happens to be run by Mc2’s mother.
When I sat down to watch the show with my very own super-smart tween girl, I was a little skeptical. I’d lost a few bets with her and she’d forced me to watch episodes of a number of other shows aimed at teens (again, mostly girls). I can’t remember (or subconsciously blocked out) the names of those shows, but what I do remember is that they were horrid, filled with ditzy, stereotyped characters, poor writing, and horrid acting. So you can imagine my delight….
