Julie and the phantoms is a Netflix original musical, comedy, drama series that has something for everybody. In this post I’ll give you a couple reasons why you should watch it, and my personal opinion at the bottom of the article (no spoilers ahead by the way).
The plot: Julie Molina is a sixteen-year-old who has recently lost her mom, and because of it, her passion for music. One day, she plays an old CD and three ghosts (part of the band played, who died 25 years ago) show up in front of her and her life starts changing. They discover that people can see them and hear them if they play with Julie.
The music: I’m not lying when I tell you that the soundtrack is simply amazing. It has different types of songs (rock, pop, ballads, etc) and they are soooo catchy; I first watched the show back in October (and I’ve watched it two more times, oops) and I still can’t get the songs out of my head. When I watch a musical, I usually download 2 or 3 songs from it, but out of 15 songs the show has, I downloaded 11 at first, and now I also have downloaded the 4 remaining lol.
There are tons of funny scenes, romance, eye candy, and probably some tears (of joy or out of sadness, you’ll have to find out about it :). Even though the show may seem to be meant for kids, I think everyone would enjoy it; The more you watch, the better it gets.
Personal opinion: I honestly love this show (just in case I hadn’t made that clear haha). This is one of those shows that brings me pure happiness every time I watch or hear something from it. I fell in love first with the characters and then with the actors, who seem to be so down-to-earth and so nice.
Fun fact: This is Madison Reyes’ (Julie, the main character) first appearance on TV (well, technically it’s Netflix, but you get what I mean), which is crazy, because she did such a great job, as the rest of the cast and crew. Also, the show is 9 episodes long, and they last 25ish minutes, so, you can finish it in less than 5 hours.
WARNING! This is the kind of trailer that spoils you the whole show. I would recommend to watch it up until 01:16 (when a blonde boy says: “Give it up for Julie and the Phantoms!”), or else you’ll see kinda everything that happens.
