"Six girls, one bathroom. If this isn't the apocalypse, I don't know what is."
Michonne

Tired of all those boring reality TV shows? Why don't you tune in for the BAMF Girls' Club! Discover what happens when you place five absolute badass action girls (Hermione Granger, Lisbeth Salander, Michonne, Buffy Summers, Katniss Everdeen)... and Bella Swan in the same house: a whole host of wacky shenanigans are sure to ensue!

A comedy web-series from Comediva which asks just how well some of our favorite, strong-willed and powerful heroines (and Bella) would interact when taken from their normal universes and forced to share a small, suburban home.

It can be found here.


BAMF Girls' Club provides examples of:

  • Ambiguously Bi:
    • Bella is still super into Edward, of course, but her clingy nature means she gets very touchy-feely with the other girls. It's not always clear whether or not she's sexually attracted to them or if it's just that she's starved for affection and has No Sense of Personal Space... though it is telling that in episode #9, when guest star Veronica Mars tells Bella "I could kiss you!" Bella immediately puckers up.
    • Hermione's constant Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today? when she's around Willow, or when Willow is mentioned, isn't quite convincing.
  • Aside Glance: Disregarding the Confession Cam for a moment, Hermione and Lisbeth tend to stare through the camera sometimes.
  • Berserk Button:
    • For Arya, anything that implies beheading.
    • For Katniss, anything involving black chicks dying... or not.
  • Brick Joke: In #11, Hermione's magical experimentation backfires on Michonne and apparently doesn't do very much... until later.
  • Everyone Meets Everyone: The first episode is dedicated to the girls all moving into the house and meeting for the first time. Hermione's heard of Buffy before, but hasn't actually met her — apart from that, everyone's pretty much a stranger.
  • Exact Words: Lisbeth claiming she didn't hack Katniss' Facebook, Buffy's Myspace, Hermione's email and Bella's Instagram because "Their passwords are always 1 2 3 4."
  • Expy: Played for laughs in episode 11. Buffy tries to reunite the Scooby Gang but since they can't make it she recruits the other girls based on their tangential similarity to her friends (Hermione for Willow, Bella for Xander, etc.).
  • Extreme Omnivore: Katniss. Special mention goes to the time she hunts and makes dinner, then finds out it's Jacob Black and horks it up... then goes back to eating it by the next camera cut.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Buffy, somehow extricated from the period her show was on air in for this show. Of course, this also explains Arya Stark.
  • Funny Background Event: #11. Hermione practicing her spells backfires onto Michonne in the back, for no other reason than to backfire on Michonne.
  • The Ghost: Harry, Ron, Peeta, Haymitch, Spike, Xander, Edward, even those walkers Michonne's been dragging around all get mentions.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Michonne and especially Katniss in the talent show episode, as they try to get the other girls to show off their more useful talents, by poisoning Hermione and shooting an arrow at Buffy. Both victims are angered by this, although Hermione is more angered that she got a lower score than she felt she deserves.
  • I Call It "Vera": Buffy's stake is credited as "Mr. Pointy". Extra funny if you know who's responsible for the Trope Namer.
  • Iconic Item: Props to the props department for providing stuff like the wand, a stake, a laptop, a katana and a recurve bow. Yeah, Bella got left out again...
  • I'm Not Here to Make Friends: Katniss makes this very clear, though she does see the value in alliances and frequently allies with the like-minded Michonne.
  • Impossible Pickle Jar:
    • In episode 8, Bella proves unable to open a jar of jam. Although, after seeing Buffy accidentally crushes a pot with her Super-Strength, she just hands it to her. And then she keeps hounding Buffy with more jars, until the vampire slayer shows Bella how to use a jar opener.
    • Later, in episode 14, Hermione on a magic fast is unable to open a jar, and Bella opens it for her. That she would need Bella's help, of all people, depresses Hermione even further.
  • Lethal Chef: Katniss' oatmeal-groosling cookies. Sounds bad enough to begin with, but things go From Bad to Worse when the secret ingredient is revealed to be tracker jacker venom.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy:
    • Practically everyone. Part of the humor comes in the girls tackling real life problems (i.e. six girls but one bathroom) like how they'd tackle it in their work.
    • Literally for Katniss, who thinks her experience with the Hunger Games is completely relevant here. Not so much.
    • Michonne, too, since she thinks the walkers are everywhere.
    • Buffy usually gets along with the above two as she too is an Action Survivor. The problem is that while they tackled zombies, corrupt politicians, and kids trained to kill, she's tackled demons and vampires.
    • Lisbeth usually believes Hollywood Hacking can solve anything.
    • Hermione actually is the closest person to getting the genre right, since the series she's from was partially inspired by stories involving a Boarding School, similar to the situation she's stuck in with the girls.
    • And Bella... well, she still acts like herself (which isn't helping).
