Nice Show
20 January 2001 | by (Brooklyn, NYC) – See all my reviews

I just watched the Pilot(I taped it) and it seems like it will be a pretty good Nick show. Christina Vidal plays the lead role as Taina(duh). She is a freshman in a Performing Arts Highschool in NYC(woo baby!!). She daydreams and has a very very strong desire to become famous(as do I in some respects). Being that I only have one episode to go on this is all I can give you. Christina has a very good singing voice as shown in the series(we'll get to hear more of it). The show will basically give you Taina's journey through life ,Highschool and her quest for fame. I can't really comment much on the other characters but I did notice Karen Fraction from My Brother and Me as the ballet instructor. I'll hijack Ebert and give it a thumb up.

***a little sidenote** Christina Vidal has lived Taina's life to an extent being that she is also a NYer(woo !!) and she also went to a performing arts highschool. I hope people can latch themselves onto this series because it is very good.
