The latest hit Netflix series is here. In February, the streaming service unveiled Ginny & Georgia, a dramedy starring Brianne Howey and Antonia Gentry in the title roles. While the reviews were only moderate (appreciative if not overwhelmingly positive), the series has garnered its fair share of viewers, while not escaping some controversy along the way. Nevertheless, commonly compared to Gilmore Girls, this family drama should win over audiences who love that popular series.
