Mysterious Benedict Society Style

Open a bottle of sparkling wine, order Thai Lao to go, and make it a wine night, y'all

{ The Mysterious Benedict Society Review } Let me tell you, this is a fun show to watch with kids, but that’s not the sole reason I recommend watching it.

Open a bottle of sparkling wine, order Thai Lao to go, and make it a wine night, y’all. The Mysterious Benedict Society on Disney+ may be kid appropriate, but adults will love it just as much.

Don’t get me wrong: I love bonding with my son (12) with a TV show or movie that hooks us both.

However, this show? It is BEAUTIFUL.

The story is entertaining, the dialogue is quirky. The characters are smart and intriguing. The mystery unfolds.

The story is what my 12-year-old likes.

Yet, it’s the style of the show that has me hooked.

The Mysterious Benedict Society Review

The cars, the interiors, the wardrobe are all mod, gorgeous, and classy. The cinematography is art. The female characters are confident and brainy (in an enviable way.) The kids are exceptionally intelligent. The Mad Men vibe makes me want to toss out my 2022 closet, go back in a Time Machine to 1960, and shop in a department store for mustard-colored suits with belts, a-line patterned dresses, and jaunty scarves to tie around my neck.

I’d recommend watching it on your own, even if you don’t have offspring you’re trying to lure into bonding.
