Ebola is deadly, this show's writing is deadlier
9 April 2015 | by thenukedukeSee all my reviews

Armpits stink. Pigs stink. Corpses stink. Sewers stink. Poop stinks. This show stinks even more. Normally, you'd expect a school play to have the worst acting possible but alas, this show exists. Watch Sharknado and then watch a few episodes of this, the Sharknado cast will seem a lot more talented in comparison. None of the cast show any range or believably portray their individual, one-dimensional characters who display the emotional maturity of a two year old with anger management issues.

This show is extremely boring and repetitive - each episode normally has the same routine (no pun intended); badly choreographed dancing, terrible dialog, underwritten and pointless relationship drama, badly choreographed dancing, end. Nothing ever happens on this show and that makes it boring.

The characters are well and beyond shallow and as such, you can't give a damn about any of their exploits, including their hopelessly dysfunctional relationships. The adults on the show are beyond irresponsible, never noticing the troupe threatening conflicts on the show and it doesn't help that they're generally just negligent.

You wanna know something else about this show's conflicts? They're more contrived than creationism. Random characters turn up, random characters conspire against each other. In the second season, there's endless talk about "nationals" and "the challenge". Neither of these things cause tension and they just become annoying after a while - Every other line of dialog is "Nationals, nationals, nationals". If you used CTRL+F to find every use of "nationals" and "the challenge" in the show's scripts, you end up with a show that's about fifteen minutes long and fifteen minutes TOO long.

In summary, this show lacks in character development and compelling story lines, replacing both of those with terrible dance choreography and terrible relationship drama which makes the relationship drama in Godzilla (2014) seem realistic in comparison. To Heck with this show.
