After I was done watching Project Power, I wanted to watch something that I did not need to pay much attention to. So, I remembered a show called Teenage Bounty Hunters was supposed to be released on Netflix in August. A small search later, the first episode was playing, and from the first few minutes of the teen dramedy, I was hooked.
It was not the premise of the show which got me hooked; instead, it was the performance of the two pretty unknown actresses who rocked every moment they were on screen together. The show’s plot is nowhere near as great as the performance of the two leads, and most of the people who finished the series know those two ladies carried Teenage Bounty Hunters with amazing grace.

As the title of the new Netflix series suggests, Teenage Bounty Hunters is a show about two teenagers who damage their father’s truck and stumble into bounty hunting as a way to pay for the damage. Another thing about the teenagers, they are from a Republican religious family, and they are extremely horny.
The fraternal twin sisters’ decisions are guided by their desire to lose their virginity and experience sexual intercourse for themselves. This desire and later the complications of having relationships make for some of the hilarious moments in the show, but nothing ever takes away from the chemistry the two sisters have.

I like to finish streaming shows in one or two sittings, which is one of the reasons why there are many shows I have yet to finish because I lost interest in the middle portion. But for Teenage Bounty Hunters, it was not the case, I started watching the show at two in the afternoon, and after giving myself time to cook some food, I finished the series by 4:30 in the morning.
Teenage Bounty Hunters had one of the best lead pairings that I just could not turn it off once I started watching. The best thing about the show was this twin connection sisters Sterling and Blair share where they go into warp mode and can synchronize, as well as pass information to one another without even speaking a word.
The twin warp scenes are funny and later comes in handy during a hair situation. I have never seen anything like that done before, and the scenes just added an extra layer to the series, showing a deeper connection between the sisters. And after watching the show and looking at the cast, I was bummed to find out Maddie Phillips and Anjelica Bette Fellini were not sisters in real life.
The show was like a by the numbers action series involving teenagers, but the two leading ladies elevated the show to beyond its simple premise. Even the later development of the characters on their own was a great addition to the dynamic between the twins.
It will be interesting to see how the final shot revelation is going to affect the relationship between the two sisters, but I myself am dying to watch Teenage Bounty Hunters season 2. With Sterling‘s relationship, Blair‘s romance, and their mother’s past, there are so many questions that still need to be answered. Netflix needs to renew the show for a second season; the two leading ladies deserve as much for their herculean performances.
