Storyline

Michelle is a Las Vegas showgirl who would like to return to her true love - dancing. After a tumultuous experience at an audition for the musical Chicago, Michelle accepts a marriage proposal from an admirer. On impulse Michelle and Hubble get married and she relocates to a small town where she learns she will be sharing a house with her mother-in-law Fanny. Little to Michelle's knowledge, Fanny owns a dance studio in the back of the property and Michelle sees all these young ballerinas striving to reach their dreams. After an unexpected tragedy, Michelle's entire world will change. Written by Carrie DeCosta

Brilliant TV
11 September 2014 | by lavanyaxoxoSee all my reviews

This show reminded me of Gilmore Girls, right from the first episode, before I knew it was a Palladino thing. Not in a predictable way, rather the quick wit writing unique to Amy Sherman Palladino.

Bunheads is brilliant TV, it's funny and interesting but can take on a sad angle wonderfully too. The actors are amazing, each and every one of them, and the dancing is beautiful!

Highly entertaining and heartwarming, you grow to love the characters. and feel personally involved in their lives (I'm not weird, I swear). Paradise is such a nice little town with its eccentric inhabitants.

I particularly like the female-centered cast, they pull it off brilliant. Don;t be discouraged, though, it isn't a "girly" show.

If you like ballet, witty dialogue and little towns, give this a shot. Heck, give it a shot even if you don't; you will be hooked by episode 3.

PS. I'm heartbroken that Bunheads has been cancelled.
