Basically a BBC made "The Monkees" for the year 2000 and beyond. Borrowing heavily from "The Monkees" (1966) as well as Peter Engel's creations (such as "Saved By The Bell" (1989)), the S Club 7 are seven high energy, big personality, easy on the eyes British youths packaged for stardom through albums, television series and the occasional BBC special. The first of their projects to reach the Americas is "S Club 7 in Miami." In it their London manager, tired of his inability to get them off his back and into paying work, promises them a cushy thirteen week gig as the house band at an ultra fashionable Miami resort hotel. Only after they've moved in do they realize that their miserly new boss, Howard Borlotti, sees them more as slave labor then entertainers. In addition to their playful antics, wacky hi-jinx, and zany fun, each episode features a musical performance by the group. Written by
I admit that I watch S Club 7 on Fox Family Channel, heck, I'm watching it right now...but the show really isn't very good at all. The 7 really have little talent when it comes to singing, and they couldn't act if they're lives depended on it. The show, however, is somewhat entertaining. The group isn't annoying like real groups, such as Backstreet Boys, N Sync, Mandy Moore, Britney, etc.-- who all have NO talent whatsoever, so it goes to make them even more annoying...but unlike all of these groups, S Club is watchable, and sometimes even fun to watch. Overall, it's a good show, if you ignore the lack of talent on the youngsters, and the ridiculous plotlines...not to mention the fact that the group seems to always have an awesome cash flow, tho none of them ever really have true jobs outside of the singing gig. A lot of the songs are really good, because as anyone can tell, on the recordings, their voices are totally different. It's a good show if you can bare this genre, but if you can't, stay away. 8/10
