Girl Power!
30 March 2016 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Bankrupt scholar Billie Brown (Charlotte Newhouse) is hired to tutor entitled rich girl Gene Russell (Jillian Bell).

After a rocky beginning a mutually beneficial kinship develops. The two combine to take on challenges neither could hope to solve on their own.

Beneath the veneer of slapstick humor the Comedy Central show Idiotsitter is a life-affirming depiction of the power of modern sisterhood present in the friendship between women. Feminist narrative never worked on as many levels as this one does.

Female friends should watch this show together and assess whether their relationships are as satisfying and liberating as the one shown between Billie and Gene.

They will see the potential for greatness that lies within all women to cooperate with each other in a mystic rhythm for the betterment of humanity. They will know a feeling of connection with one another only slightly less enjoyable than scissoring.

Was it not Alexis de Tocqueville that wrote of the potential greatness of America within it's associations i.e. the power of networking? That phenomenon combined with women's liberation can be fascinating when played out in a fictional structure.
