look, Cher's styled for Little House On The Prairie!

{review based on what I was able to download, about 15 min. starting from the beginning}

Cher, pampered little Daddy's girl, who has everything (looks like a train pulling into the station as she slides her designer wardrobe across), loses some of her appeal because of a disastrous shabob (combination shag + bob) haircut, hilariously executed by Ka- Feen (comedian Bronson Pinchet, at least SOMEbody who gives his A- game for the show, the rest sure doesn't) which leaves her looking a bit like that child vampire girlie from INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, for shame, the poor thing looks like she's from the previous century, I mean, the previous previous century. So, her new boyfriend, another rich kid, drops her, leaving her stranded socially. Well, that was as far as I could watch.

{Very disorientating on my download is that the synchronization is completely off, making it ludicrous to watch and increasingly difficult to enjoy as it gets worse and worse, but that has no influence on this review}

The main problem with this show is that Rachel Blanchard doesn't do cute with the "whatever" panache that Alicia Silverstone did so effortlessly. There is no denying that Rachel is pretty enough. But, compared to Alicia, she appears to be an empty shell. I'm quite sure she could have done, at the very least, a considerable lot better. But she seems to be simply delivering the lines damn near deadpan. Much of the magic is therefore gone. Yes, she looks great, but that extra spark was needed! The rest of the original CLUELESS movie lot, Stacey Dash, you especially, everybody just shows they were one-hit wonders. The older cast seem especially useless, Twink Caplan what a bore! Well, gee, they're fat cats with no incentive to prove themselves in a little TV show, they reckon...

The problem definitely doesn't lie primarily with the script. The problem lies with the lackluster no-zing attitude of the cast. They're not at it to win it. They're just coasting along. Oh, I'd say they're good, well, most, but far from great, and they need to be great to live up to the original's status. They all fall far short. Pathetically and scandalously so.

I maintain that the show is one of the highest- ranked on my list of Unavailable-on-DVD, but it's largely for its potential. I remember good moments when I watched back in the day, but when you really focus on it, when you are aware of the cracks, this one is a wasted opportunity to continue the good times of the original masterpiece!

Addendum, a couple days later. The haircutting scene is so good, however, (and I had such a time deciphering what exactly it is that Ka-Feen says), I am upping my score from 5 to 6.
