The Grrl Scouts, played by Anna Akana, Hope Harris and Benita Robledo are roommates in danger. Well, really, they dispense the danger … and drugs. And punk. Okay, so lets get this straight — they’re danger-dealing drug queenpins who like to roll on X, rock out and eat pizza. But right now they’re also in danger — and roommates, so technically I was right the first time also.

Slamming together the best elements of a whole bunch of my favorite things, Grrl Scouts is a series with a sort of “1980s meets Ninja Turtles meets Too Many Cooks” vibe. And just like that, we discover that Mike Diva has cultivated something awesome. No, screw that … Grrl Scouts is better than awesome … it’s cowabunga!

Based on the Grrl Scouts comic book created by Jim MahFood, this potential series, directed by Diva and produced by the awesome production house Lord Danger (hinty hint hint: NMR’s parent company, Zealot, also owns Lord Danger), was made in conjunction with the New Form Digital Shorts Competition. Grrl Scouts has our favorite female superheros (oh did we mention they were superheroes?!) battling the Illuminati, this time headed by miniboss Drexl, the pimp from True Romance (close enough anyhow). Actually his name is Zeph, but there’s so much going on here, it’s all borderline ridiculous. Diva has such a steady hand though when it comes to content direction he keeps everything rolling, action-packed and somehow sane enough. It moves quickly, soaking into your eye sockets and it’s only later that you realize you don’t want to blink, for fear of missing what Grrl Scouts throws at you next. It’s been a while that the internet has done that to me.

We don’t want to spoil anything, so you’re better off tuning in. Frankly, I would have abandoned this article to watch the show a long time ago, but mad respect to you for trucking through.

Look for cameos by Mike Diva and Jim Mahfood. And the obligatory Mitchell Davis cameo. Also, make sure you catch the terrific shoutout to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s opening credits. It sets you up for the magic that follows.

Please share the hell out of this — Mike Diva is a great director and deserves to have his work adored by the masses … even those little African tribes that have never seen a TV.
