WHY YOU NEED TO WATCH JULIE AND THE PHANTOMS
the LGBTQ rep is IMMACULATE. the plot between willie and alex is so cute, and their chemistry is literally so good
the songs are FIRE. I haven’t heard original songs this good since hsm/camp rock era
julie (played by madison reyes) can sing so well it honeslty blows my mind. her acting is also so so good.
the three boys have geniune friendship without any toxic masculinity and it is honestly so refreshing. they’re not afraid to show their feelings and I LOVE THAT
it’s honestly just casted so well. some teen/ya tv shows are cringey but this one is not i promise you
it stays mostly light while touching on heavier subject lines
its genuinely really funny
the jar jar binks joke had be actually laughing out loud
an amazing villian. he gives me dr facillier vibes.
please watch it i want a season two
PLEASE WATCH IT SO I CAN HAVE PEOPLE TO FREAK OUT WITH

So you know how when Willie and Alex first meet Willie tells him that Mozart died from eating bad hotdogs?
Well, headcanon that Willie is like that all the time. He knows the most absolutely random stuff and has a fun fact for literally every situation. He just spews the most strange knowledge at the weirdest times and nobody ever expects it even though he’s always doing it. Examples-
Alex: It was so embarrassing! I wanted to bang my head against a wall.
Willie: If you do that for an hour it’ll burn 150 calories 😀
Alex: Reggie genuinely thought that chocolate milk came from brown cows.
Willie: He’s not alone! So does 7% of the US adult population.
Luke: We want our band to blow up! We want to be big, y’know, like Elvis or someone!
Willie: Well, despite his fame and fourteen nominations, Elvis actually only won three Grammys, so... 😬
Alex: I have a headache. Any ideas on how to get rid of it?
Willie: You could try trepanning - it’s a method that’s been used since the Stone Age where you drill a hole in your skull to release the evil spirits trapped inside 😊
Willie: The lining of your stomach has to replace itself every three to four days otherwise you’d digest yourself.
Julie, pushing her food away: Thanks, Willie.
