Until I got on these forums, I don't think I realized how unpopular Dawn was. I mean, it does make sense that she would move across country if she wasn't popular, but she also had that spinoff series with her California friends. Of course, I never read it or even saw it in the library, so maybe it wasn't popular either. Her possibly haunted house with a secret passageway was always my favorite thing about her.
Claudia was always my favorite. She was the babysitter least like me. Asian, gorgeous, zit-free, cool, fashionable, artistic, book dumb. I never disliked any of the babysitters, Jessi was likely my least favorite at the time. but looking back I think I find Mallory's storylines the least memorable.
Watching the show I'm realizing just how deeply some of the plotlines and characters from the series are burned into my brain.
