Really enjoyable show - looking forward to next season
8 May 2020 | by jfmcg07See all my reviews

I started watching this with no expectations and really love it , but there are a lot of things that irk me. First - I do not believe there is any town where 4th graders go to school with high school kids. There might be two schools ( K-12 and a High School) but not a 4th through 12. Also Hilde seems to have only 2 kids in the school her age. The running around at all hours is a bit much, but it is the lack of consequences that is important. Also reporters do not break in to crime scenes, steal medical records or steal VCRs from their school Principal's office. That is against the law and unethical and dangerous. They do interviews. They can have theories but they are to report the news not make the news. The only reason I find these elements irksome is that I don't want kids watching this show to follow her lead. I know the real Hilde did scoop a story that happened near her house but it was not by acting in a unethical dangerous way. She interviewed and also listened to the police officers. She reported. The acting is great. Brooklyn Prince is perfect. Jim Sturgess as her Matt Lisko is ok - a bit whiny and while I realize that having the whole mystery dredged up is upsetting he is a bit too man-child for me. I would think he would have more perspective since he was an investigative reporter himself for many years. I think Abby Miller as Bridget Jensen is great. She is the more balanced parent and is trying to help keep the family afloat while supporting her daughter. Kylie Rogers as Izzy is also great - having Hilde as sister would be trying to any teenager and she does step up as needed. Good show.
