Andrew Lee Potts,
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
This has got to a be one of the most fatuous shows on television. This show is all about 7 members from Merry Old England trying to hit it big in the USA. I mean, okay, grant that it has some funny moments and everything, but sometimes when the people talk, I can't even understand there articulation! Even sometimes when they begin a sentence , I don't get what is at the end of it ;so at the end before a break if they say a smart-aleck line, I can't even understand it, so I don't even know what they're saying because of their heavy english accents! People who have watched it know what I'm talking about. Example: (Not to say this quote was actually in the show, but they talk exactly like that!) `Teee-nu---w'yon't yu' he'v the lo' 'f it now!' See people! Things that are also not so funny is how they treat the black guy, Bradley. His character is so racist and stereotyped. He's the black guy who is cocky and egotistic---, he the only one that raps in the songs, he's stupid, not too bright and foolish and the most ridiculed. And all the other white S Club 7 members patronize him on a daily basis. He also druels over and flirts with every white girl he sees. I guess that's what everyone expects of him. My summary Is that this show is dumb. The songs are dumb and are just as unoriginal as the other teeny-bobber songs out there. Either like it or you don't. Well, tah-tah and crumpets!
