It’s weirding me out that they look like actual children. Like real life, gangly, awkward children. In the first series and movie, the actresses seemed so old to me. Part of it might’ve been because I was a child watching through kid lenses, but they seemed far older than the kids in this series.
Edit: The movie actresses ranged between 10-17 (Jessi was the youngest, Claudia being the oldest), the actresses from the original show seem to have been close to the characters ages.

“I think both of those characters are interesting to explore, especially with each other and just the way they fit into the larger picture of the club, which will be a big part of future seasons, should we be so lucky to get one.”
This shows that they hope for more seasons. Hopefully enough people tune in out of curiosity.

I assumed that Camp Mohawk wouldn't be called Camp Mohawk in the Netflix series, but I think it's hilarious that they called it Camp Moosehead because Moosehead is a popular brand of Canadian beer. I do happen to live in the city where the Moosehead brewery is located, but even before I moved here, if you said "Moosehead" I definitely would have thought of the beer before thinking of the head of an actual moose.

I wonder what "Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls" is going to be like in a world with cell phones.
...And I'm editing this post so I won't have to double-post.
Here are some reviews, all positive, some absolutely glowing. I can't wait till Friday!
The reviews from Variety and Time have some information that could be considered spoilers. I don't think the other reviews have any info that wasn't already in the trailer or previous articles about the show.
