User Reviews

the television version of crack
23 April 2006 | by holmeskeSee all my reviews

If the summary confuses you, my meaning was this: I don't normally like shows like this, in fact of all the shows of it's kin that are on the N, this is the only one I REALLY like. The crack comment was meant to imply that this show is highly addictive. It explores a subject that I'm surprised has not been tapped into before now, what happens after people win contests like American Idol. Not only is the show a topic which we know audiences like (American Idol), but it has dimension to it. It has characters that you really like or characters that you really hate. The show gives viewers everything that audiences have been shown to like: comedy, good music, attractive, and not untalented actors, and the most important thing, drama. I would recommend this show to anybody, at any age. Despite the fact that it is mainly geared toward teenagers, I know grown ups that watch it and like it just as much as their children. So in conclusion, if you haven't watched this show, give it a chance, you just might like it.
