What Are the Critics Saying about Harriet the Spy?
Harriet the Spy does not have an official rating but has a 6.9/10 score on IMDB. The series has more misses than hits and the reviewers have different opinions about the voice work of Beanie Feldstein.
Douglas Laman from The Spool observes, “Harriet the Spy’s greatest assets are its pretty backgrounds and a welcome eschewing of edgy humor. Unfortunately, those features can’t outweigh the oddly monotonous tone and generic storylines.”
Kristen Lopez from IndieWire writes, “For all the warm fuzzies found within Harriet the Spy, the series lacks the rebelliousness Fitzhugh created with her novel. Harriet is only a spy of sorts, with episodes focused more on extracurricular activities between Harriet and her two best friends, and her issues with Marion.”
Is Harriet the Spy Suitable for Kids?
