Teenage Bounty Hunters [WORK]



After denting their father's pickup truck, high school students and fraternal twins Sterling and Blair Wesley fall into bounty hunting for grizzled bounty hunter Bowser Simmons in order to pay for the truck's repair, and without their parents' knowledge. [3]




Teenage Bounty Hunters



Created by Kathleen Jordan, Teenage Bounty Hunters centered on fraternal twins Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Bette Fellini), who are looking for more trouble beyond their pristine Southern lifestyle. The twins team with experienced bounty hunter Bowser Jenkins (Kadeem Hardison) and start bringing in local criminals. The girls balance the hazards of their secret profession with the finer details of high school life including romance; advanced school work; and, of course, the popular kids. Sterling and Blair work to keep their academic lives and their questionable extracurricular activities separated.


In the series, after joining forces with a veteran bounty hunter (Kadeem Hardison), sixteen-year-old fraternal twin sisters Sterling (Phillips) and Blair (Fellini) dive into the world of bail skipping baddies while still navigating the high stakes of teenage love and sex. Sterling and Blair plan to excel in all aforementioned extracurriculars, despite the watchful eye of their buttoned-up community.


Netflix's criminally overlooked series Teenage Bounty Hunters took viewers on a wild ride during season 1, but will there be a season 2? Debuting on the streaming platform in 2020, the show followed Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair Wesley (Anjelica Bette Fellini), a pair of twin sisters in Atlanta who attempted to balance their high school social lives with their jobs as bounty hunters. The quirky premise was reminiscent of teen shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and it managed to mix humor and action with progressive ideas as well. Though it didn't set the world ablaze upon its initial release, the series gained a loyal fanbase.


The cast was understandably unhappy with Netflix's decision to cancel the show, and stars like Fellini took to social media to express their displeasure. The conclusion of Teenage Bounty Hunters season 1 left the door open for so much more for Blair and Sterling, and a season 2 could have delved deeper into their family history while also showing how a teenager reacts to such earth-shattering news. Teenage Bounty Hunters was a refreshing change of pace from the usual teen drama shows, and Netflix never gave it a chance to thrive.


Netflix's new comedy Teenage Bounty Hunters centers on a pair of twins, Sterling and Blair, who team up with an established bounty hunter to track down bad guys and collect the rewards. So are the actresses actually twins in real life, or is this just a case of really good casting?


Teenage Bounty Hunters is the latest teen programming from Netflix, although it's definitely pretty different from the "normal" teen comedies you're used to! The cast also includes Kadeem Hardison as the bounty hunter expert they team up with, Mackenzie Astin and Virginia Williams as their parents, Myles Evans as Blair's love interest Miles Taylor, Spencer House as Luke Creswell, Sterling's boyfriend, and Cliff "Method Man" Smith as a rival bounty hunter, Terrance Coin. The action comedy dropped its entire first season on Aug. 14.


Netflix's upcoming comedy Teenage Bounty Hunters shines a light on exactly that. Rebelling against their buttoned-up Southern community, 16-year-old fraternal twin sisters Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Bette Fellini) Wesley team up with veteran bounty hunter Bowser Jenkins (Kadeem Hardison) for an over-the-top adventure as they dive into the world of bail-skipping baddies and suburban secrets, all while trying to navigate high school drama.


Terrance Coin (Cliff "Method Man" Smith) is a rival bounty hunter, a budding YouTube personality, and Bowser's nemesis. He starts to date Bowser's ex-girlfriend, Yolanda, causing a whole lot of drama.


From Kathleen Jordan and executive producer Jenji Kohan (Orange is the New Black, Weeds), the Netflix original 10-episode series Teenage Bounty Hunters follows Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Bette Fellini), 16-year-old fraternal twin sisters who rebel against their conservative Southern community, but still remain true to their strong faith. When they unexpectedly team up with veteran bounty hunter Bowser (Kadeem Hardison), they end up on a wild life adventure that sends them deep into the world of bail-skipping bad guys, but that ultimately ends up teaching them more about themselves than they ever could have imagined.


I started watching the show and was very excited for the queer content, but honestly could not get over the realization that the U.S. still have actual bounty hunters in this day and age. #GermanLawStudentProblems


The truth is right there in the title: The leads, fraternal twins Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Bette Fellini), are both teenagers and bounty hunters. They get into their new side gig through happenstance, accidentally wrangling a fugitive who was on the run from Bowser (Kadeem Hardison), a full-fledged bounty hunter whose side gig is running a frozen yogurt shop, which should give you an idea of the madcap tone the show bathes in. After dinging their dad's truck and needing money to repair it, Sterling and Blair decide to keep doing the gig for the cash and, presumably, because it's more exciting than sitting through Spanish class.


The early episodes move along at a brisk pace as Sterling and Blair deal with high school issues -- catty rivals, cute boys, concealing their sexual indiscretions from the oblivious faculty -- while also doing side work with Bowser. Bowser reluctantly agrees to help them out because there are some places two cute white girls can get into that a middle-aged Black man can't -- an early target is holed up in a country club, for example -- and because Sterling happens to be a great shot with a pistol and Blair has street smarts that come in handy, he tolerates their inane (and very funny) conversations about stupid stuff that happened in school years ago to people we don't know. But the cases rarely intersect with their personal lives, severely limiting the danger and importance of the bounties-of-the-week to the series. Teenage Bounty Hunters loses individuality from that, pushing the bounty hunting further and further to the side as the season goes along, and becoming a more traditional high school show about young Christian girls trying to get laid. Not that that isn't enough to hold a show, it's just that when a show is called Teenage Bounty Hunters, you want to see more of these teenagers being bounty hunters.


By the middle of the season, I almost forgot Sterling and Blair were bounty hunters, but boy oh boy did I know a lot about their boyfriends. It's a shame, too, because some of the skips have the potential to be interesting peripheral characters; they're mostly fun, bumbling criminals rather than actual dangers, and, with one major exception, only there for one episode and not connected to any of the main characters or plots. But even when there is some intersection to their regular lives -- Blair gets caught in a situation when she sets up a date with her boyfriend while she's also supposed to be tracking a skip in one episode -- it feels more like a sitcom situation than an effective use of its premise. I wanted Blair and Sterling to chase a perp, cuff him, and race into Christian fellowship huffing, puffing, and still covered in dust from the tussle. But Teenage Bounty Hunters silos school from bounty hunting in a way that undermines the whole concept of goody-goodies doing dirty work when their pastor's back is turned.


Hardison, who is completely unrecognizable since his days as Dwayne Wayne in A Different World, gives the best performance of all as Bowser, a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter whose heart still aches from a broken relationship. But it's his paternal relationship with the girls that really makes things work. They each take playful generational digs at each other, usually ending when Bowser grunts himself out of a conversation while the girls tail him like puppies. Bowser's "Hmmmmrphs" are the best exasperations on Netflix since The Witcher's Geralt.


The teen comedy-drama Teenage Bounty Hunters premiered on Netflix on August 14 and quickly attracted a devoted fan base. The series centers on fraternal twins Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Fellini) and their haphazard venture into bounty hunting while trying to figure out how to pay for damages to their father's car. Teenage Bounty Hunters' outlandish premise lends itself to a lot of comedic moments, but many viewers were surprised to find a nuanced LGBTQ+ storyline between Sterling and ex-best friend April Stevens (Devon Hales) amid the antics. That plot point made it all the more heartbreaking when, despite positive critical reviews, Netflix announced in October that it was canceling the series, thus depriving queer viewers of nuanced representation. But the fans are fighting back.


Netflix's new show Teenage Bounty Hunters is a high-octane thriller dramedy that features two strong-willed, empowered, religious teenagers who literally kick butt . . . but the show is anything but teenage. Set against the backdrop of a conservative town in Atlanta, GA, it starts with twins Sterling and Blair crashing their dad's car, and in order to earn money to repair it, becoming part-time bounty hunters for their mentor Bowser.


There are strong religious themes that overlap with the girls' exploration of their sexualities. Sterling and Blair live in a religious town and come from a strict Christian family who attends church regularly. Despite the conservative nature of their surroundings, they are sexually curious people who think about and engage in pre-marital sex. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, creator Kathleen Jordan said, "Obviously sexuality and religion are not mutually exclusive. Most American teenagers are religious, and most American teenagers are sexual and have sex lives. So we wanted to reconcile that." 041b061a72
