What a funny and charming show. And the (very adult) lead actresses play middle schoolers so well I keep having to remind myself they're actually in their 30s. The late 90s / early 2000s period detail is spot on, too. As funny as the show is, I'm also surprised at how moving it can be. I just finished episode three in which Maya discovers... as Steve Martin said in The Jerk... her "special purpose." It managed to be quite meaningful and empowering without being preachy.
