I know the art style was really bad and the characters were butt ugly, but overall I found it to be pretty entertaining.
I'm a guy
When I was a kid I felt neutral toward it, but one time I came home from a friend's house and my mom was crying in front of the TV because I'd left it on Nick and she'd gotten sucked into a marathon. I wish I could remember which episode specifically made her cry! I love my mom.
Ugly art style, mainly. That's pretty much the entire reason people hate it. Also the fact that Ginger keeps forgiving Dodie for no FUCKING reason despite the fact that she has the most fuckawful personality.
There's lots of candidates. The one where Ginger has a poem recital, invites her dad and he doesn't show up and his mom sends Ginger flowers saying they're from him. The one where Carl's teacher dies. There's others too I can't think of.
The episode when the girl with glasses (forgot her name) wanted to be a child again made me cry. I remember as a kid thinking oh it's so sad to see her happy doing such childish things like playing on the slides. Now that I'm grown up, I've realized that I've become like that to a certain extent. Holding on to childhood nostalgia and not realizing that it's time to give all of that up and embrace the lifestlyle of being an adult and only doing adult things.
Does anyone remember that episode? I haven't seen it since then.
Pretty sure it was the movie, where Ginger was away at Camp Caprice having drama with what's-his-face.
Yes, yes, and yes.
Still wondering why there was no follow-up to the episode where Dodie and Macie tried to ruin Ginger's relationship with Darren because they felt they weren't getting enough facetime with her. There were plenty of times when Ginger should/could have dropped Dodie like a sack of hot shit.
You've opened the opinions trashhole
but this anon is pretty much right. It was a very average show for preteens about being a teenager during a time where there was a whole of that shit, animated and otherwise. Its distinguishing feature was clasky-csupo art style which is super ugly. Worked great for AAAHH! Real Monsters and alright for Rugrats, didn't do any favors for ATBG.
looked up the name of the episode, it's called family therapy.
and she wasn't so happy to have all those kid things because she had hard childhood nostalgia, it was because her parents were dismissive shits who forgot her and she was just excited they were acknowledging her.
I really loved the show when it was airing, but I mean the last season was barely on and I think I saw maybe 2 of the episodes before they stopped airing it. Finally watched the final episodes on youtube years later and it had a good ending.
You don't do a epilogue to a show and then go "hey look it's coming back and picking up where it left off"
really? Is it going to be Ginger trying to write something new while changing diapers? Cause if not, then it's not picking up where it left off.
That reminds me, I never understood why everyone was so obsessed with Ginger in the show. Courtney had a weird crush/fixation on her, Dodie and Macie worshipped her, and Miranda was obsessively threatened by her. It was weird. She wasn't that interesting.
>Ginger keeps forgiving Dodie for no FUCKING reason despite the fact that she has the most fuckawful personality
This is what makes me like the show now that I'm older. It is a realistic show about how a insecure girl can be manipulated and dominated by her friends. The girl constantly comes up with reasons why her friends and Dodie's mom is not in the wrong for all of the shit they pull. It even shows the rich girl as a not bitch, but rather unaware of how things really are. Her friend is also a bitch for the same insecure reasons that Ginger is a doormat.
>tfw you'll never be a seal girl living in the real world
I remember watching this show as a kid, but I have no idea what the story/plot was. Was it just generic middle-school girl social drama? (with Nickelodeon-enforced comedy elements, of course)
