new US tv series i've been watching

January 10, 2010

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:
