"Make it or Break it" Broke it.
While I didn't originally intend on watching the Make it or Break it premiere on ABC Family, I found myself pulled in for the simple fact that there was absolutely nothing else on (I already knew that Jon and Kate were getting divorced so I chose to forgo that misery).
I kept the following list of observations and decided to share them with you (just in case you missed it ;):
*Way to take advantage of the post-olympic ferver. If the show only would star cute little Shawn Johnson I might just watch it again. They did pick a great Nastia Luiken character.
*Could they have stolen anymore things from Stick It? The leotards look almost identical, the main star looks freakishly like Missy Peregrym, and the mother looks JUST like the mom in the movie too!
*How could a gymnastics show feature so little gymnastics? I know they require special effects and stunt people, but you'd think they'd show more routines rather than fancy/crappy camera work to cover up their actress' inability to do any of the things the show requires.
*How on Earth are they going to come up with a seasons worth of this show? The less-fortunate gymnast can only over-take her spoiled rich competitors so many times. This show is going to end up like Gilligan's Island where you know how each episode is going to end and you'll end up stop caring.
*At least the guy is really hott. That's it. He can't act but he's really good looking so I can ignore that.
P.S. I know I've bitched about this before...but having seen a couple new teaser trailers for 10 Things I Hate About You during the show I decided to bitch again. They had someone remake "I Want You To Want Me" and have been using that for their teasers. I'm sorry but it's bad enough to remake a great movie into a TV show you shouldn't ruin a good song by remaking it too.
