Flashback Friday-Clueless Television Series (1996-1999)

For every success in Hollywood, there is an attempt to replicate that success.

In 1995, the movie Clueless, based on Jane Austen’s Emma hit the big screen. The film was a resounding success.

A year later, the television series Clueless hit the small screen. Airing for three years, Rachel Blanchard stepped into the role of Cher, taking over for Alicia Silverstone. The narrative of the television series continued in the same direction of the movie with many of the same characters that film audiences loved in 1995.

As I recall, the television series was merely ok. While it attempted to replicate the magic of the film, something was lost along the way. I can’t put my finger on it, but it felt like a second-hand replacement.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
