I discovered this show's prequel, S Club 7 in Miami, by accident. It just came on one day when I was sitting at the TV out of boredom, but I very quickly became hooked. A music group with their own TV show? How cool is that?!? I tried to watch every episode thereafter, so you can imagine the disappointment I felt after seeing it missing for several weeks. Did they just stop making the show? Was the TV station pulling it down because I was probably its only viewer? No! The crew were just busy packing their stuff and driving to start a new series of adventures for us to share and love.
S Club 7 in L.A. is even better than the first season! Before they were limited to a holiday resort but now they're visiting all kinds of interesting places, doing new jobs around the city each time. However the things I liked from Miami are still here and as good as ever. The accents: man, I'd be happy just listening to them talk all day. The acting: they're either bad actors trying to act well, or good actors trying to look like amateurs intentionally, but either way I love it! It has an amateur "feel" but it's one I definitely like. The jokes: they're so predictable they aren't that funny in themselves, but the fact that they're intended to be funny when they aren't makes it funny again. For example, Rachel's holding several dogs on a leash and asks Hannah, who's wearing rollerblades, to hang on to them for a while while she buys some lunch. It's so obvious what will happen next but even when it does I still crack up as if I had no idea it was coming.
A friend of mine once said that Dawson's Creek was his life, he'd rather see an episode of that than go to the movies. I never understood that, I mean I quite like the show but don't think it's that good! Well I understand him now, I consider S Club 7 in L.A. to be the current highlight of my weeks. I'm THIS close to buying the VHS tapes of their shows, and if they were on DVD I'd almost certainly go for it. And I wouldn't even have anything to play it with! Just frame it on the wall and admire it I guess.
