Basically a BBC made "The Monkees" for the year 2000 and beyond. Borrowing heavily from "The Monkees" (1966) as well as Peter Engel's creations (such as "Saved By The Bell" (1989)), the S Club 7 are seven high energy, big personality, easy on the eyes British youths packaged for stardom through albums, television series and the occasional BBC special. The first of their projects to reach the Americas is "S Club 7 in Miami." In it their London manager, tired of his inability to get them off his back and into paying work, promises them a cushy thirteen week gig as the house band at an ultra fashionable Miami resort hotel. Only after they've moved in do they realize that their miserly new boss, Howard Borlotti, sees them more as slave labor then entertainers. In addition to their playful antics, wacky hi-jinx, and zany fun, each episode features a musical performance by the group.Written by
this is not meant to be a show like mastermind; it's a harmless teenage show which i loved when i was a teenager.
it's everything young people want to be, talented and ambitious, living the dream in another country, with their friends. the songs are catchy, the acting's okay, but there not claiming to be RADA students, but they are talented and have fun personalities, none of the girls are tarty and no one is full of themselves.
having to watch a load of American high school dribble about not being cool and cheerleaders, it was nice to watch about people having a life and dreams.
Some people moan about their accents, well me being English, their accents are fine, normal and being from all different areas of the u.k, it's gonna sound odd to other countries, but not everyone in the uk is posh or a cockney, plus having to watch American shows a lot, i sometimes find American dialect hard but the programme wont suffer because of it, you learn the words, phrases, once you watch it more. it would be boring if everybody spoke the same.
in the UK lots of teenagers use the words, 'muffin' 'plum' 'muppet' etc, i think some people take this show too seriously.
s club 7 have all moved on to other things, jon lee is on the west end stage, rachel had a pop career, Hannah is in a BBC drama etc. and Miami 7 is still funny and harmless.
