Is anyone else out there watching this show?
I am presently writing something involving a teen ballet dancer, and I know nothing about the day-to-day details of ballet classes and such matters. So when I saw ABC Family had a show called bunheads
on Monday nights at 9 I figured I would watch it. Purience played a certain part in it, as it contains beaucoup little teenaged girls
Anyway, it focuses more (too much, I think) on Sutton Foster who plays a long, lean show dancer who complicatedly becomes associated with a a ballet school in a small California town. She's not bad but she's too frenetic, and there's lots of stuff about her and her mother-in-law who owns the school. And there's the posse of little ballet dancers.
I sort of like this show. I am at a loss as to what constitutes a good sitcom these days. I love the NBC ones, and Modern Family
and Don't touch the B****
, but most of the others lose me in some way or another. I periodically watch The Big Bang Theory
trying to figure out how it's one ot the top sitcoms and I just cannot understand how it could be.
Anyway, this is not up to the standards ot the best of the NBC ones or the other ones I mentioned, but it seems to me it competes pretty successfully with the other sitcoms that Americans seem to have taken into their hearts. I realize that the main demographic of this site that loves things that blow up real good would probably run screaming from this. But you just might want to give it a try.
If you can make your way to the last three minutes or so of the Movie Truck episode you can see the beautiful Julia Goldani Telles dance to "Istanbul (not Constantinople)", and believe me, it is a sight to see.
