Oh, Netflix, what have you done to us? You’ve given us another adolescent series that leaves us with so many questions. On the surface, Ginny & Georgia is yet another high school show reminding us that we are so happy Snapchat wasn’t around when we were growing up. But rip through the frivolous layers of extracurricular activities, acronym clique names, and petty teens, and it reveals itself to be a story about a young biracial woman struggling with her identity while also touching upon self-harm, body image, and complex first sexual experiences.
In the series premiere, we meet almost 16-year-old Ginny Miller (Antonia Gentry), her gorgeous mother Georgia (Brianne Howey), and her younger brother Austin (Diesel La Torraca) as they’re picking up and moving to Wellsbury, MA. It doesn’t take long before we find out that picking up and moving is nothing new to the Miller family, but things in Wellsbury feel different for them. Ginny has a group of friends! Her first boyfriend! And an adolescent attitude that we have all admittedly been privy to. It feels like for the first time, Ginny is on top of the world. But what goes up, must come down, and with that comes some decisions.
Upon pulling into Wellsbury, Ginny is instantly smitten by Marcus Baker (Felix Mallard), the handsome, bad boy who just happens to live across the street. And on the first day of school, she locks eyes with Hunter Chen (Mason Temple), the also-handsome, straight-A student in her new group of friends. Like any series that takes place in high school, Ginny & Georgia gives us a good old-fashioned love triangle. However, in this case, the question is not which guy should Ginny end up with, but rather which guy is less terrible for Ginny? Since there is truly no right answer here and we can all appreciate the drama that is being a teenager, two POPSUGAR editors have come together to dispute the Hunter-Ginny-Marcus affair like the mature, adults that we are. Are you Team Marcus or Team Hunter? Let’s dive into the latest edition of Ship Wars.
