I love this show it's hilarious, but one thing that upsets me is that they recasted Anna-Kat with Giselle Eisenberg, I mean I get it Julia Butters willingly left the show but I feel like there are better casting choices out there for instance: Raegan Revord, Kaylin Hayman or, Mia Talerico all great options.
