We all went through the awkward, stressful, hormonal years of middle school, right? While I have no desire to ever relive my early teenage years, I’ve been watching a hilarious show on Hulu called Pen15 that makes me cringe and laugh at the same time.
Pen15 stars two actresses in their 30s who play 13-year-olds among actual 13-year-old actors and actresses (it might sound weird, but it works due to a combination of acting, wigs, and prop braces). My impression is that the scripts are based on these actresses’ real friendship and stories that are both relatable and–at times–super weird in a very entertaining way.
I’m only 4 episodes into the series, and my favorite moment so far is Maya’s drum solo. There’s a lot more to come, though (including a new season in the spring), and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Have you seen Pen15? What’s your favorite comedy on TV or streaming right now?
