A Promising Show
12 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

Hope you have read the story line. Beyond that: The girl (Sutton Foster) is a 30 something girl, life has passed her by in the dancing business and she is now an ordinary show girl in Las Vegas. She has a 40 something guy who sees her show all the time and is a big admirer.

He keeps courting her all the time and finally she relents and marries him, seeing that she has no further career in her present life.

The show moves along fast, and its once she reaches the guy's hometown that the real story begins.

The whole cast seems nice, especially Sutton. And the direction and editing was really tight, a very good indication that some good guys are behind this, so I think this has promise.

I can't give a full recommendation, but I am intrigued and will continue to watch.

Give it a shot, just 5 mins would be enough and you will know if you like this kind of show.

Cheers!

Review after seeing episode 2:

I was so disappointed. The quality has gone on a nose dive and the show has become silly. The one actor that I was rooting for, he was just eliminated all together, now all that is left is a group of really silly, artificial people with mediocre acting.

The teenage girls that they showed in episode 1, the students in the dance class, they are just horrible. I guess the point is to show them slowly evolving over the many years this show might run, but its going to be really difficult to live through their bitching and super idiotic behaviour.

Opinion - If you are someone very much into ballet, you should give this show a shot, else its just not worth our time considering that there are better shows like 'The Newsroom' running on TV right now.

Cheers!
