Well that was interesting
25 October 2020 | by GoodErsatzSee all my reviews

Wait, actually it was not. Allow me to elaborate.

I grew up watching Soul Train as a kid. I absolutely LOVED Soul Train, so I was excited for this show. So I watched a couple of these with my family and we quickly decided this was garbage TV. My grandmother (70+ years old) even mentioned how bad the *editing* was ! We got a kick out of that because she said she never has noticed "bad" editing before, but she is right; this show is an example of how NOT to edit.

You know something is wrong when your retired librarian grandmother is making fun of the amateurs who threw this thing together. Amateur hour is indeed in the house. I have a feeling someone had the idea for this show and just paid all of his/her friends to become "professionals".

Mildly interesting if you want to know:

*How not to "edit" *How not to "act" *How not to "produce" *How not to "direct" *How not to "write" *How NOT to turn an interesting concept into a decent show.
