Episode 134: Paper Girls (TV Series)

Andi and Lise are finally back! YAY! And they wanted to rave about the series Paper Girls (2022), first season available on Amazon Prime. This is adapted from the comic series written by Brian Vaughn and illustrated by Cliff Chiang. The story is about four young teen girls who are paper delivery girls in the Midwest in 1988. One morning, after Halloween, they’re out delivering papers and end up inadvertently getting sucked into a time war between two factions. As a result, they’re flung into the future (2019) and have to navigate figuring out what’s happening and how to get back to their own time. They also end up meeting their older selves, and negotiating those relationships is tense. This is a fabulous coming-of-age story set against time travel and a time war. What is not to love???? 

Sad caveat—Amazon decided not to renew this for a second season, but it is being shopped around to other platforms and we hope this happens because this definitely needs another few seasons. Great story, great writing, and great characters.

Shout-outs: Lise watched Season 1 of The Sandman on Netflix, adapted from Neil Gaiman’s comic series. The Sandman is Morpheus/Dream, god of dreams, who is imprisoned in the human world for a hundred years, and as it turns out, dreams are important in the human world; without them, things go to crap. Once Morpheus is out, he gets to work trying to set things right. Andi is watching the latest Star Wars spinoff, Andor (Disney Plus) about Cassian Andor, who you met in the movie Rogue One. This is his backstory, detailing how he got into the Rebellion. Andi loved Rogue One, so getting Cassian’s backstory is really cool. 

Episode 23: Paper Girls

This week Andi and Lise get into the retro-cool mystery sci-fi comic series Paper Girls, in which four twelve-year-old girls have paper routes in 1988 and band together to deal with weird and crazy things happening in their town. So you’ve got monsters, strange beings, time travel…and what seems to be a conspiracy underneath it all. Appropriate for kids, strong female characters, and unpredictable plotlines. Have fun!
