The show was created by the same woman as Naturally Sadie so I was hoping it would be at least entertaining if not actually clever most of the time. So far I have been disappointed however. The writing is dull and insipid. I fear it may be because the stock TV writers are mostly not Indians and thus are struggling to come up with thematic material. On second thought even generic episodes have been lacklustre. The acting also seems poor although one does have to make allowances for the inexperience of the actors. Marline Yan shines though. A natural talent to be sure. Still I do rate it 7/10 because I'm happy to see something about Indians.
First let me say that I saw the episode about "managing moms" at
writing conference at Ryerson University.
I couldn't believe how BAD it was. The acting was terrible and waaay to over the top but that is not necessarily all the fault of the actors as the writing was not believable at all. This is not the first time i've seen such horrendous dialogue but it is the first time where the acting made it worse then it already was.
My buddy who graduated the A/V program at Ryerson made a comment that it was so mechanical that it had no life whatsoever (or something to that effect). I should probably mention that I did laugh (or smile) at some clever jokes but that does not save the production on the whole.
What was sad was the panel presenting it seemed to be "gushing" over it and that it it was such a great idea that it just had to be produced, The producer/writer/director was saying how he tried to produce it ten years ago and it kept getting rejected. Maybe he should have taken the hint.
I do apologize for being so harsh but I felt it needed to be spoken. But since it is for the kids it is really their views that count, not mine.
