It seems like the female world never runs out of counterparts to the ideologies of manhood. With the launch of MTV’s comedy series “Girl Code”, the differences in approaching life between the two genders become readily apparent and in many instances proves to be quite funny.
“Girl Code”-a spin-off of the successful comedic series “Guy Code”, MTV says, is a strong and smart female driven comedy series bringing viewers a new, hilarious how-to manual full of over the top tips to push the envelope and open the dialogue about the wonders and woes of womanhood, covering everything from frenemies, girl fights and cutting bathroom lines to dancing, drinking and dating. In the same style of irreverent commentary that fans have come to love on MTV2’s top rated series “Guy Code,” the new MTV series calls on female stand-up comics, actresses and musicians—and even a few guys—to weigh in on the sisterhood that all girls share.
In its first ever episode, Girl Code took on that one question that has been the subject of debate throughout the ages; does size matter? Surprisingly, the girls answered no-surely eliciting naughty smiles amongst guys secretly monitoring the series. The Girl Code team teaches their audience that size isn’t everything, that self-control is key, and how to stay calm. This is but a slice of the fun. Put all those tips and know-hows from bathroom etiquettes to that elusive issue of farting and you’re in for a joy ride of all sorts.
The cast includes funny and comical women, such as Jessimae Peluso, Carly Aquilino, Jamie Lee, April Rose and Nessa. With great humour, they attempt to explain topics exclusive only to womanhood. Sometimes, the show features a few guys including Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino to extract male insights which are often outrageously debated.
Amidst all the fun and humor, the show brings out everyday realities that distinguish a man from a woman. It reinforces the idea that while the advocacy of gender equality is crucial in the modern state of society to certain respects, there are just things that definitely draw a demarcation line. Boys will always be boys and girls…well, find out for yourself.
Undoubtedly, this series is more of a societal tool than mere entertainment. It provides a venue for promoting gender awareness. To some extent, it seeks to revive the “lady” in a girl through various views and opinions ranging from the funny to….the funnier.
Girl Code airs on MTV every Tuesdays at 10:30 pm ET/PT.
