new US tv series i've been watching

12:53:00 PM

They may be teenage flicks. but they have something special about them that made me hooked. Apparently, both shows are from ABC.

1. Make It or Break It. - If Glee is all about show choirs, this one is about gymnasts and their road to the Olympics.

Familiar face: Cassie Scerbo as
Lauren (Left) - She's in Bring It On 4.

The gymnasts in this series has got to be gymnasts in real life. If not, that's great editing and stunt work right there. I haven't looked up yet if there will be a season 2 but I am sure hoping that there will. The season ended up on a bad note for one major cast and I would love to see what they will do to her character on the next season, if ever there will be one.

Oh, just want to add that I really do think the girl who plays Kaylie Cruz could pass as Eva Longoria's sister.

The Score:

2. 10 Things I Hate About You - TV series remake of its namesake where Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer) and David Krumholtz (Numb3rs) starred in.

Familiar Face: Meaghan Jette Martin as Bianca Stratford (Left)- Tess Tyler in Camp Rock.

If you loved 10 Things I Hate About You movie, I'm pretty sure you'll love this. Well, that is if you're anything but a critical viewer. 

This series has a refreshing feeling after each episode. It's set in a comedic tone that it will make you laugh at some point. The only con about this, which also doubles as a pro, is that it's only a 30-minute series including the commercial breaks. So that would make it about 22 minutes long at most. It could double as a pro because extending this to an hour-long episode would exhaust storylines and could potentially fill the series with too much drama. 

It has already been out in the air that there will be a second season that will be aired early this year. Yay! 

Oh, I also find it cool that the Larry Miller as Dr. Stratford in the 1999 movie also plays the same role in the series. It's like the movie was set in a much modern age. 

The Score:
