parent thinks it's great
13 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is about a not very popular teenage girl who wins a contest because she's a good songwriter, then gets a recording contract that doesn't turn out to be what she expected. She goes on to discover that all the things that go along with stardom are pretty hard to handle--especially for someone still learning to just maneuver through life. She's a sweet and talented kid, and the show is about her joys and disappointments. BTW--The songs are all really sung by the actress (unlike most TV shows where they overdub) as can be seen in the credits.

I watch this show every Friday and anxiously await the next episodes. The actors are all talented, nobody shows excessive skin, and nobody talks potty-mouth or jumps in bed with ANYONE. Teen angst, yes, but told poignantly and with talent. The writing is great, music as heart wrenching as any teen could want, and acting superb.

And now for my input on the topic of sex. I am a fairly strict and prudish parent and I think this show is fantastic. As far as the sex and sexuality in this show, I disagree with what another IMDb poster/reviewer said. The star doesn't sleep with anyone to get ahead, or for any other reason--she doesn't even sleep with anyone--at least not in the shows that have aired so far; I'm not sure what TV series this person watched, but what s/he describes is not the series "Instant Star" that is airing now on The-N. The most "sex" in this show (as of writing date) is kissing. And it's not passionate as much as it is sweet and romantic. Without giving anything away, I can say that each kiss has happened for good reason and isn't just gratuitous making out scenes. The show is about relationships of all kinds--family, friends, self, and romantic. I've seen TV commercials with far more sexuality than this TV show! I'm not saying the actors aren't sexy and gushing charisma, I'm just saying that the scripts and drama are plenty chaste.
