Aggressive Censorship of Opinions
16 October 2005 | by Stalker74See all my reviews

I am kind of amazed that every time I visit this board regarding Instant Star, that anyone who has criticized this TV show has had their opinion deleted. Apparently someone in IMDb bought stock on this show. I have watched it a couple of times, and I find it highly annoying. It is not very creative, it is full of stereotypes, and it does not provide any positive role models for teenagers.

Instant Star is more along the lines of a Teen Exploitation television show. Lots of relationship issues get explored, and that seems to be what the producers hope will sell the show to teens. Instant Star is as shallow as the shows interns who keep posting rave reviews. No doubt this review will be deleted soon too.
