What is this show or episode about?

This show is about five best friends called, Frankie, Kenny, Fliss, Lyndz and Rosie (the SOC). Together they face challenges such as elections and boys like the M and M's. The M and M's are the SOC's worst enemies, apart from Sara and Alana. One of the M and M's is Lyndz's twin brother. The SOC's also face challenges like the time when Kenny and Rosie liked two boys. The SOCs almost split up over that and so a new rule was added to the SOC rule book (the book of rules which all SOCs must abide by). There are happy, sad, funny, you name it (!) times and as all SOCs are individual, there is something about their very different personalities to which people can relate.

The plots of the show are all very intereseting and well-planned. There is nothing I dislike about them except for the fact that I am jealous and I wish that I was part of the club!

In the story of the show, I would like Alana to ditch her best friend Sara, who is always maltreating her and stepping all over her.

What, if anything, would you change about the way show is written, staged, or produced? Do you like the way the characters talk, what they wear, what the set looks like, etc.?

I would not change anything about the show because it is perfect as it is. I love the way that the characters talk except for Basia A'Hern's lisp as Lyndz which partially bugs me. No offense. Eliza Taylor-Cotter is very talented and does an amazing, impeccable "posh-ish" English accent as Rosie. 

Do you have any other comments about yourself or the program that would give us a better understanding of your review?

The sleepover club is my favourite series in the whole world and I am very distraught that it closed down.
