Aye, if my grandmother had wheels she'd be a wagon
9 August 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

In case you're wondering, my title is a quote from Star Trek, and I have no idea what it means.

This show is without a doubt the greatest thing I've seen on TV in decades. Don't judge it by its seemingly vapid premise; it's a lot more than a bunch of chicks on skates beating the snot out of each other. It's a very creative & unusual program.

The first half focuses on the ordinary life & extraordinary drama of a particular set of characters (it changes). We witness everything from roommate quarrels to bizarre love triangles to art gallery showings--whatever enters into the orbit of these people.

Yadda yadda, you're saying. How is this different from any other drama queen reality show? The difference is in the 2nd half when they strap on skates and beat the snot out of each other.

The dynamic is powerful. This show is one half sports, one half melodrama, and of course one half hot chicks. The confluence of these 3 engaging themes comes together in a rousing, physical, adrenaline-pumping climax that's sure to have you cheering, even if you've never seen roller derby before, like me. I'm not even a sports fan by nature, but when I'm given a reason to care about the athletes--to recognize the faces under the helmets as ordinary people like us, to realize the poetry & emotion that goes into body-slamming a chick over the rail in a dazzling display of wheels, limbs, skin & sometimes blood--then I have to say 'wow'.

It also helps that one of the roller girls resembles my ex girlfriend, and I get a certain satisfaction out of seeing her pummel people and get pummelled in the rink. My shrink says it's 'transference' or some dookey like that. In any case, this show is great entertainment and great therapy.
