Amy Sherman's new series
21 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Older Vegas showgirl Michelle Simms (Sutton Foster) finally relents and accepts a marriage proposal from admirer Hubbell Flowers. She moves to Paradise, California but he quickly dies in a car accident after one day of marriage leaving her with everything including a dance studio. With his mother Fanny Flowers (Kelly Bishop), she takes on the shock of her new life. Boo Jordan, Sasha Torres, Ginny Thompson, and Melanie Segal are four of the young teens attending her class.

Amy Sherman (Gilmore Girls) created a new series. The premise is a little awkward at the beginning. Foster has plenty of energy coming from years on Broadway. The four girls are an appealing bunch with good chemistry. It never hurts to have Kelly Bishop return to Amy. Overall, everybody is likable but it doesn't have the natural flow of Gilmore Girls. It does have a fake feel although I don't buy the Shonda race complaint. It's a good show and I wish they lasted more than just one season.
