30 out of 50 people found the following review useful.
American Bison, 11 October 2012
Author: Panamint from United States

I saw an episode of this series that was mostly just a large, very loud woman standing in a room and bellowing like a buffalo as loud as she could. Standing and standing. Bellowing and bellowing. Very little of the dancers, very little of the dance moms.

The above scenario happens far too often and it is edited this way deliberately. Are the producers stupid or are they just trying to produce some episodes as cheaply as possible? Well, I have a suggestion- hire a real buffalo or a large moose, have its owner put it in a room and let it bellow. That would be even cheaper than paying this woman.

They are doing a disservice to the dance teacher and everyone else by this editing technique- by featuring her standing and yelling, doing nothing, they minimize the students and the moms. Basically they have taken the "show" out of the show.

Whether it is the teacher standing and acting belligerent to everyone or just some moms sitting around arguing and complaining to the teacher there is very little to most of the episodes except cheap production values (chairs in a room- neither show nor reality). Just chairs and a room.

And a buffalo.
