Ah the Hypes
4 October 2017 | by nepreneauxSee all my reviews

When this show came along the hype was far greater than the substance. Being a musician I was more ready than most in my area. The theme was awesome at the time and as mentioned did much better than the show itself. Going back and watching the video will make you laugh. The guy that played Harry appears to be madly in love with Jaime Walters during the video and that dufus pretending to play drums really screwed that up with the contorted face. Other than that the story was believable if not a bit dark, like 90210 in ways. I think it lasted as long as it could have, after all once you saw it, did anybody really think it was going to go beyond one season?
