Andrew Lee Potts,
I came on as a closet fan of S Club 7 a little late, it wasn't until the L.A. series that I started watching it regularly, and I'm hooked. This may be a kid's show, but I'm 29 and I think the show is cool! I think it's because I was a fan of the Monkees and this show is a direct descendant.
This show is a lot like "Friends" except it hasn't got any sexual content, which is a good thing. It's about a group of 7 twenty-somethings from the U.K. who are living in the U.S., trying to make it big as a bubblegum group. In the first series, they were based in Miami, but for this one, they're in Los Angeles. Here, they seem more serious to try and make a name for themselves, and unlike "Friends", we see some attractive people doing the dirty work to get there, using jobs such as restaurant help, tour guides, aerobic instructors, nude models, and singing at a prom. All this while trying to get a record producer to give them a chance.
Although the acting by the others in the series is your typical kiddie-stuff, the engaging performances of the S Club 7 are good. And unlike the "Friends" this is a great looking cast. Tina Barrett is a true beauty.
Of course, the music is pretty good. S Club 7 does generic bubblegum pretty well, much better than Britney Spears or Jessica Simpson. Although none of them can sing like Christina "The Alien" Aguilera, they're much more photogenic. Their albums are available at most stores. "Two In A Million", "S Club Party", and a cover of "Dancing Queen" are fine.
The best thing is that these people are good role models, unlike a lot of others in the music industry. I'm glad that in a world full of oversexed T.V. shows, there's something to watch that's an escape from that. I can't wait to see where they go next. New York, Las Vegas, Toronto, and San Francisco seem like good bets.
