The Vampire Diaries 2x02- Carnivals Alway Cause Drama

Sorry this is late!

Poor Poor Caroline
Caroline wakes up scared and alone in her hospital bed. I am not sure if I am happy or sad that she is not dead. I don’t want her to be a vampire but I don’t want her to leave the show. I hate you The Vampire Diaries for making me feel this way. Caroline leaves her room and asks the nurse if she can get anything to eat, but the nurse says breakfast does not come until the morning. As she is walking back to her room she is strangely attracted (for her, not for us because we know she is a vampire) to a bag of blood. She steals the bag and begins drinking it to complete her vampire transformation.

The next morning Matt comes to bring breakfast to Caroline. They go in to give each other a kiss, but she realizes that she can’t due to the ray of sunshine separating them.

Next he tries to brighten her day by brightening her room with the dreaded sunlight. She freaks out and tells him that he has to leave. Poor Caroline, I just want to give her a hug. Her next revelation of who she has become comes as she is staring in the mirror and her fangs pop out. Just like a teething baby she screams and the nurse comes running in. Unable to suppress her insatiable need for blood, Caroline feeds on the nurse.

Every TV HS Has Its Carnival

Elena and Bonnie are getting ready for the school’s annual carnival. I am really jealous because my school never had a carnival. Bonnie keeps trying to talk to Elena about the whole Katherine doppelganger thing and the Salvatore brothers but Elena's not having it. She tries to evade the infinite amount of questions Bonnie is firing at her but Bonnie does not seem to be getting the hint. Finally Elena lays it down and says she does not want to talk about anything vampire related and that “she is human has to do human stuff” if she does not want to go crazy. They try to comprehend how Caroline was able to plan this carnival all by herself in the past and come to the conclusion that “obviously she is not human.” Wow, that was subtle guys.

Damon’s Curiosities
Damon goes to visit the Lockwood resident to continue his Lockwood investigation. While in the study, talking to Mrs. Lockwood, he uses his super vampy hearing to eavesdrop on the manly Lockwood boy’s conversation. Uncle Mason is asking is asking Tyler about his rage. He is asking when the rage episodes occur. And is all like, is it only once a month? Is it only at night? Are you a werewolf? Sorry, I added that last one in. Tyler doesn’t really pick up on the question pattern and responds that he just hates the rage. This conversation sparks Damon’s interest in the Lockwood Family Secret.

Jeremy’s Tries Revenge

Stefan is being his usual good and honorable self and teaching Jeremy way in which to protect himself from Damon. He gives him back his vervain so that Damon cannot compel him. Also in his Vampire 101 he learns that a stake to the heart kills a vampire, something that I am pretty sure any 5 year old knows. At the carnival Jeremy gets all cocky and threatens to expose Damon as a vampire, flashing his “I can’t be killed by a vampire ring” showing he can’t be hurt. Damon rains on his parade by putting him in a headlock and swiftly and smoothly removing the ring at threatening to shove it up his ass. Damon:1 Jeremy: 0

Lockwood Family Secret
At the carnival, Damon and Stefan discover that the Lockwood men do indeed have superhuman strength. Stefan suggests that they are Ninja Turtles and has one of his first funny lines of the season. Also I love any reference to TMNT since it was the first movie I ever saw in theaters. Damon finds the first guy he sees, who happens to be the guy Bonnie was crushing on earlier, and compels him to start a fight with Tyler, and to not stop no matter what. Since the vampire powers that be force him to follow these commands, he starts the fight like he was supposed to and Tyler’s rage kicks in. Just as the action is getting hot and heavy Uncle Mason steps in to stop the commotion. He does this super human jump in the air and then Tyler sees Mason’s eyes turn yellow.

When the boys get home Tyler questions Mason about what happened in the fight. Uncle Mason tells him to forget it, that his eyes turned yellow from some car lights. Tyler may be an ass, but he is not a dumbass. After Uncle Mason goes to sleep Tyler goes into his father’s study to find the moonstone that Uncle Mason had been snooping for earlier that day.

Caroline’s Out
Caroline leaves the hospital and comes to the HS carnival. She catches up to Damon to deliver Katherine’s message to the Salvatore brothers and adds her own “You Suck” to the end of it. She goes and finds Matt, but discovers when giving him a hug that she has an urge to bite him. She becomes very short with him and asks that he leave her alone. Damon rounds up the troops (Elena and Stefan) to tell them the news. Although Elena and Stefan protest, Damon suggests that killing Caroline is the only way to handle this situation. As Caroline is walking around the carnival she comes across the dude who just fought a werewolf Uncle Mason, who also happens to be bleeding. Caroline attacks and feeds off of him, but this time she is unable to hold herself back, and she ends up killing him.

Wrath of a Witch
Caroline feels horrible for what she has done because she has not turned the feelings switch off. Damon goes and starts to comfort her, but really he is there to kill her. Just as Damon is about to stake Caroline, Stefan attacks him and all is well. That is, until Bonnie comes to see the aftermath of the commotion. She is furious. Not only is her best friend now a vampire, but she killed the guy she has been crushing on. Bonnie blames everything that has happened on Damon and uses her powers first to fuck with his mind. Next she runs a stream of gas from a hose to where Damon was screaming and set it on fire. All this time Elena is screaming at Bonnie to stop and only does so by interrupting Bonnie’s concentration. She tells Bonnie that this is not them, that they cannot be killers.

Caroline Will Survive
Stefan brings Caroline to the bathroom to clean up her blood ridden face. Caroline is freaking out not know what is happening to her and is scared. Stefan calms her down. He explains to her what is happening and that it can be controlled. That he will be here for her when she needs, and he will teach her how to control her impulses.

As she is lying in her bed later that night Matt climbs through her window. She tries to hide but realizes she really can’t, and then tells him to leave. Matt refuses and says that he is not going to leave because he loves her. He is scared though because the way she has been acting today makes it seems as though she does not have reciprocal feelings. Caroline squashes those thoughts from Matt’s mind by giving him a heartfelt kiss. As her face begins to become all vampy, she is able to repress it. And now we have home that Caroline will survive. And now I can be happy again. Praise the lord.

So I am going to be recapping Glee next, so look out for that soon.

Hellcats 1x02- A Steep Decline In Quality

So I am going to eat my words from last week. After this last week, Hellcats may not be as good as I expected. I thought this episode was a complete bore and felt that it lasted for hours and never ended. But good or bad, I am still going to recap the episode.

Show Time
We start off just where we left off, with the Hellcats getting ready to perform. They huddle up around Vanessa to get the normal pregame prep talk. She asks the squad if they are feeling the weight, making it seem like it is going to be the hardass coach speech, but wait she fooled me. She tells them she has faith in them because they are “champions of the spirit.” And then she continues to give a totally unconvincing and unmotivational speech.Next comes the performance. Oops sorry, spoke too soon. Drama obviously has to ensue first.

Savannah’s got Family Issues.

Savannah walks out to the hallway where the Memphis Christian Cyclone girls are practicing. For a team that is “not showing alot of skin” their skirts are maybe an inch below their vag.
Right after we find out that Savannah used to go to this school, Savannah walks up to a girl named Charlotte and wishes her good luck. Instead being nice back, she tells her that Memphis Christian is going to crush them, and that she should save that luck for herself. Wow harsh, I have a feeling that is going to bite you in the ass later Charlotte. I am not sure though, this show is in no way predictable. The Cyclones are up on stage performing one of the most boring routines I have ever seen. Besides boring me to death, the routine goes without a glitch... until the end that is. Charlotte falls from the top of a pyramid and get seriously hurt. As everyone rushes to make sure she is okay, we find out that Savannah and Char are sisters.

Savannah goes to visit Charlotte, but as soon as she walks their is tension you could cut with a knife, and their mother excuses herself from the room. She tells Charlotte she misses her family, it is really sad. Charlotte only responds with “What makes you think this is all about you.” Wow that was harsh.

More Mommy Issues
Marti gets called on the PA to come to the front desk of the competition and finds her annoying ass mother waiting their for her. Alice stands there and does not even try to hide the fact that she invited Marti’s mom. When her mom asked why Dan, Marti’s friend, was allowed backstage and not her, he covers by saying her and Savannah was dating.Savannah is confused by this and we find out that 1) she does not understand jokes and 2) that her comment last week was not about only lesbian subtext. Also there is some sexual tension going on between Dan and Savannah. They continue with the same fight that they always have and Savannah finally gets rid of her. Their competition time gets changed to a later day, so this will probably all happen again in about 20 minutes.

Marti wakes up at 6:00 am and apparently tries to read a book while blow drying her hair.

She is frantic and we are supposed to pull from this that she is busy busy girl. After her exhausting/ exaggerated day, Marti gets home to her mother making dinner for the entire cheer house. I just want to say it really pains me to see Marti’s mom (Gail O’Grady) in this show, especially with that horrible accent she is sporting. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED her in American Dreams; she was one of my favorite characters. Here her character is so annoying and fake and pathetic. Anyway, she continues to drink too much and tell inappropriate stories throughout dinner. Marti tries to get her to stop drinking but nothing will work and after dinner we find out that she got evicted from her house. She got angry at the landlord because he wanted to paint the wall a certain color and then she trashed the landlords car. Seriously, my 10 year old cousin has more self control and intelligence than this woman After Marti is unable to focus at practice she realizes she needs to fix all of her mothers messes and saves her moms ass again.

I Really need to Finish this recap because this episode sucked
Savannah and Marti have a heart to heart in their room and discuss their mundane family issues with each other. The next morning everyone wakes up at 6AM and eats their protein rich breakfasts, and arrives at the competition. Savannah goes outside before their performance and she says a prayer for her family and her sister, then they have a weird slow motion shot of her face. Like a bad case of herpes, Marti’s mom shows up. (Yeah, I stole that one for Glee). She and her mother argue but then Marti feels bad and lets her mom stay. Wow, such personal growth Marti.Their performance goes without a glitch, and it is actually quiet entertaining to watch. Unsurprisingly they win, due to the fact they couldn’t pull of a Glee they don't win but the club still will go on story line. After they win they go to the bar to drink and dance. Dan asks Savannah out and it was really cute.

So that was the episode. Maybe next weeks episode will be better. If it isn’t better, maybe we will see “The Wedge” doing something gayish. A young girl can only hope. Thoughts, comments, free drinks to make next episode more bearable? Let me know.

Vampire Diaries 2x01- The Doppelganger Hijinx Ensues

So we start off right where we left off. Just in case anyone has forgotten, Katherine is back and she and Elena look identical. Elena comes into the house to find John stabbed and with one hand and Katherine runs out. (Can anyone think of a role David Anders played where he was not a douche? In Alias-douche; In Heroes-douche.) More important though than douche bag John being one handed is whether or not Jeremy has become a vampire after drinking Anna’s blood. Thankfully that answer is no. It turns that he did not take enough pills to die, so ironically enough Anna’s blood actually helped heal him faster.

Elana’s Life Sucks
After dealing with her brothers Vampire-icide attempt, Elena heads over to the hospital to see how Caroline is. I completely forgot about the car crash until now. I really want to know why the two Lockwood men were affected by that machine. Obviously they are not vampires, so what are they?!? Elena finds out from Bonnie that Caroline is not doing well and Bonnie has her usual “I am miserable and smell something rotten” face on. Damon over hears the girls conversation and offers to heal Caroline by giving her some of his blood.

Bonnie shows up the next morning at the hospital to check how Caroline is doing. After revealing that Damon had stopped by the night before, Matt tells her that Caroline is now doing fine. Damon obviously kept his word and gave Caroline his blood. When the two enter the room, Caroline is her usual bubbly self and watching Jersey Shore. For whatever reason, the fact that Caroline announces “Jersey Shore’s on” with a smile that big just makes me smile. 

She is so adorable, I just love that they developed Caroline’s character into more than just the needy friend who only wanted attention from boys. On the other end of the hospital, Elena and Stephen visit John to get answers to why Katherine is back. After realizing John is not going to give up any information, and is continuing to be the douche he has always been, Elena leaves. Stephen takes this opportunity to force John to feed on his blood and threaten to turn him into a vampire if he does not leave town in 24 hours. Stephen, I love it when your dark side comes out.

Katherine’s Back, and finally everyone knows
After Bonnie leaves the hospital Damon brings up the intense kiss the two had on the porch earlier in the night. Elena tells him that they never kissed (because she did not actually kiss him) and Damon is all pissy because he thinks Elena is just denying it. It is not until Jenna shows up (giving Damon the dirtiest of dirty looks) does he realize that Katherine has indeed returned. On cue Katherine shows up at Elena’s house (because Jenna let her in) and pretends to be Elena with Stephen. (This post is getting confusing to write with Katherine pretending to be Elena all the time.) Thankfully, Stephen can tell that this chick is not his girl and attacks her. When Damon and Elena arrive home, Katherine has already escaped, and Stephen questions Damon about his and Katherine’s encounter. When Damon admits that he kissed Katherine, while thinking it was Elena, Stephen flips a shit and tries unsuccessfully to attack him. As always Elena becomes the mediator between the Salvatore brothers.

The Lockwood Mansion
Back at the Lockwood house, the town is grieving the loss of their asshole Mayor. Tyler’s uncle, Mason, shows up after being gone for about seven years. I am going to go out on a limb here and say that Uncle Mason will help explain why Tyler and the Mayor were effected by the Vamp Machine. Bonnie is also as inquisitive about this Lockwood mystery as I am. Unfortunately, Damon is not, and is not willing to join Bonnie’s Scooby Search to discover the answers. After being his normal cunning assholey self, Bonnie uses her powers on him to prove she is a stronger witch than he previously thought.

Katherine comes to the house (as Elena) and Tyler invites her in (wrong move Tyler). Katherine walks different than Elena, she is more fierce and has a much stronger presence. I am not sure how no one else but me and Stephen notice this. Bonnie runs into Katherine and vents to her about Damon. It is not until she touches Katherine does she realize it is not Elena due to the fact witches have a spidey sense when it comes to vamps. Katherine corners Bonnie, but Bonnie uses her powers to save herself, and Stephen is there to help as well.

Old Lovers Reunited
Stephen and Katherine walk around the party and have an incredibly flirtatious back and forth. I have to say Nina Dobrev acting is spot on as Katherine and Elena. She really makes them two completely different characters and brings a delicious playfulness to Katherine’s character. She was no where close to this good on Degrassi. Anywho, when Stephen asks her what game she is playing, she tells Stephen there are no rules. The two leave the party (and when I say party I actually mean wake) just as Elena walks in. She sees Damon drinking by himself and goes to make sure he is okay. He asks Elena why she was surprised he would kiss her and she is all like “I am not surprised you kissed me, I am surprised you thought I would kiss you back.” Poor Damon, he looks so hurt, I just want to give him a big hug.

Stephen and Katherine continue on their walk and god damn, does Katherine look good in those pants. I mean wow.

After Stephen declares again that he hates her, she takes a metal stake, stabs him, and says “That sounds like the beginning of a love story not the end of one.” So I have two main questions here. 1)Why the hell did Katherine wait all this time until Stephen fell in love again to come back into Stephen’s life. 2) Also why did you stab him if you want him to be in love with you again? You a crazy bitch!

The Lockwood Secret
No, it is not revealed yet and I am dying. Tyler is in his fathers study and has a break down. He throws and breaks all of the things on his fathers desks and pushes his mother out of the way. All of a sudden out of nowhere Mason comes and tackles Tyler to the ground. He finally gets Tyler to settle down. Mason puts Tyler’s mom to sleeps and comes back to the study to talk to Tyler. He tells Mason that he does not know why he gets like that sometimes and that he hates it.

Mason: It’s the curse of being a Lockwood.
Tyler: So how did you get the chill gene.
Mason:I didn’t. I just learned how to manage it.
Tyler: I don’t want to be like this anymore.
Mason: None of us do, that is why they call it a curse.

What is the curse, is this a real curse. Do you think Bonnie’s grandma cursed them. Is that why they got hurt by the vamp machine. Ohh the questions don't stop!

No One Loves Damon
Stephen and Damon are finally alone, and can finally discuss that pesky little kiss from the end of last season. Stephen does his usual “I am going to be logical and you are important to me speech” and tell Damon that he is not going to kill him. They have to be united against Katherine. Damon responds in his usual “I am a smart-ass and you need to take that stick out of your ass Stephen” attitude until Stephens words seems to actually strike a nerve. Tears even start to glisten in the backs of Damon’s eyes.

Damon comes back home and Katherine is there apparently to say goodbye. She asks him for a goodbye kiss. Damon can’t resist, he has loved this women for over a hundred years. He has searched for how to set her free and spent over a century waiting for her return. Even after he finds out she has been alive this whole time, he cannot help it. Before things get too hot and heavy though he stops. He cant go through with this without knowing how she feels.

Damon: I have a question. Answer it and expect fireworks and rockets red glare. Answer it right and I will forget the last 145 years I have spent missing you. I’ll forget how much I loved you, I’ll forget everything and we can start over. This could be our defining moment cause we have time. This beauty of eternity. I just need the truth, just once.
Katherine: Stop. I already know your question, and its answer. The truth is, I’ve never loved you. It was always Stephen.

I can't stand to see Damon so hurt. My heart just breaks for him. He is a vampire because she made him think she loved him. He chose this life for her, to be with her. All of the reasons he is who is were based on the fact that they once had this love, and he has just discovered that it was all based on a lie. What is worse is that Stephen does not love her. Stephen did not choose this life. Katherine forced him into it, she compelled him to drink her blood. Damon would have willingly done anything for her, and yet it was not enough.

Damon stops by Elena’s house hammered and asks her why she was so surprised that he would think she would kiss him back. That there is something going on between of the two of them and she is denying it. Then Elena says the worst thing she possibly could have said in this situation or ever to Damon:

Elena: Damon, I care about you listen to me I care about you. I do but I love Stephen. It’s always going to be Stephen.

I do not know why everyone just is in love with Stephen. I think Damon would be so much more fun to be in a relationship with and more passionate. But seriously, how much hurt can one guy handle in one night. Because of all this rage, and the fact that he is Damon, he goes and snaps Jeremy’s neck. Do not fret though, Jeremy has on his “I Can’t Be Killed By A Vampire” ring so he is not dead. Stephen comes over to Elena’s house and tries to defend Damon and justify his actions but Elena is not having it. I really hope that she changes her mind because Elena is the only person that can save Damon. The only person who sees him for who he really is.

I wish I could cut the last minute of the episode off. I hate it, I hate it so much it makes my stomach turn. It would be a glaring omission in the recap though if I did not discuss it, so I will rip it off quick like with it like band-aid. Katherine comes, tells Caroline to give a message to the Salvatore Bros. and then covers her face with a pillow until she stops screaming. I am going to hope they are as gracious to Caroline with the nine lives rule as they are to Jeremy. She can’ t be dead and she can’t be a vampire. I love Caroline. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME VAMPIRE DIARIES!

What did you all think? Will this season be as good as last. Will Caroline be alive. What will Matt do without Caroline. He already lost his sister to being a Vampire. Oh poor Matt.  As always any questions or comments, just let me know!

Hellcats- Fake shoot the Cheerleader, Save the World

First I want to start off by saying that I wrote that title before Marti said that line in the show. I am serious. Then I found out that the creator producer of Heroes worked on the show, so it makes a bit more sense. Okay, onto the post.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new season of Television. I am starting off this year with the brand spanking new CW show Hellcats. I am excited to start recapping the show from the pilot. Also seriously what is there not to like about this show, hot and fit girls doing gymnastic moves. Enough said.

Biking through life
Well we start off with pre-law student Marti Perkins (the main character) awkwardly riding a bike that looks a bit too big for her. Apparently she rides her bike everywhere because in Memphis gas costs an arm and a leg. Well if drivers in Memphis have no arms and legs, that is definitely not a place I want to be driving through any time soon. She goes to Lansing University where football drives the social life and cheerleaders are hot shit (wow a school with a good football team, I wonder what that would be like). We quickly find out that Marti despises cheerleaders; she despises them so much that she has a game of shooting them with a pretend bow and arrow. It turns out that the Alice, the cheerleader she “pretend” shot fell off the top of the pyramid and actually got hurt. The team doctor (who is also dating the cheerleading coach) says she is out for 6 weeks and the team is going to need to find new members.

Marti bikes home and we quickly learn two things about her.

1) She has alot of trophies either for cheerleading of gymnastics (maybe the reason for her overwhelming hatred for them)

2) She never takes off her crocheted biking gloves.

She opens up one of her letters and discovers her tuition is three months overdue. She goes to the school bar where her mother works and learns that the institution has cut scholarships for children of the employees. Marti is now shit outta luck due to the fact she can’t pay for school and needs to find a new scholarship.

The joy of paying for college:
Marti goes to talk to an administrator at the school to discuss getting her scholarship back. And just like how Helen was Nikki’s hope in Bad Girls, Marti tells him that her education is her hope that gets her through life. As Marti is going through the catalogue of random ass scholarships she can try to apply for, one of the Hellcat members, Savannah, walks into the office to submit her cheerleading scholarship. Marti is appalled that something as horrid as cheerleading would warrant a scholarship. She calls Savannah a foot ball groupie and Savannah replies “There is nothing more personal than calling someone a groupie.” I am not sure about you, but I can think of at least 100 more personal things to be called than a groupie. They get in a shouting fight and decide to leave quietly as to not create a bigger scene.

We get it, Marti bikes alot
Back on her bike, Marti rides to the video store, rents Bring it On and goes home to practice the steps. I am guessing she is thinking of trying out for the cheerleading to pay for school, but that is just a guess. Using throw pillows as pom-poms she teaches herself the routine from the film and finishes it off with a back flip off the coffee table.

She is all ready to go now. At the tryouts there are hundreds of girls ready to claim their spot on the squad. (Wait, they didn't show Marti biking there, how in gods name will I know how she arrived!).

When Marti arrives she unfortunately finds out Savannah is not only one of the judges, but also captain of the squad. As in every television auditioning process we have to see the good auditionees and the atrocious. Marti does well at her solo floor routine but has a harder time during the choreography portion.She is nervous and losing the count and forgetting the moves. She decides to screw the choreography and show her own moves on the floor. When it comes down to decision time the coach really likes Marti spunk but bitter injured Alice does not. The final decision comes down to Savannah.

Welcome to Cheertown
OMG Marti made the squad! Phew, I was scared for a second. Part of being on the squad means moving into the cheerleading dorm called “Cheertown.” (I wonder how many times people vandalized that sign to read “beertown”). She brings all of her belongings to her room, and her roommate turns out to be Savannah. Savannah has tried to make space for Marti to put her stuff in the closet and in the drawers and the best interaction of television occurs.

Savannah: And here I’ve allocated half the dresser space for you. I prefer the upper drawers.
Marti: Oh, I’m a bottom myself.
Savannah gives Marti a confused look
Marti: That’s a joke
Savannah: We should come up with a signal for that to avoid confusion.

WHAT! I had to watch that clip over four times to make sure I was hearing what I thought I was hearing. I still do not really understand what just happened. Does Savannah need a code for lesbian jokes, does she need a code for knowing if Marti is a lesbian, does she just need a code for everything.

Co-ed Locker Room?
Marti wakes up after her first night at Cheertown and goes to take a shower. To her, and my, surprise, the locker/bathroom is co-ed. I am pretty sure that is not even legal but I have no idea. Luckily each sex has their own room for showers and she heads for the door with the big old “W” on it. In the showers we are finally introduced to Patty “The Wedge” Wedgerman, the highly anticipated lesbian cheerleader on the squad. And she does not disappoint, she is a big old dyke. After The Wedge leaves, Alice gives a bitchtastic schpeel to Marti about how she is just a replacement and “when you are done with a band-aid you rip it off and throw it away.” Marti retorts, with perfectly executed timing, “Oh, oh, I’m the band-aid. Got it. Do you invent your own kind of metaphors or is there a book.”

Alice’s answer to that question is “I’ll just take your towel so you will look like a fool.” This would not be too big of a deal if it was not a co-ed locker room. Lewis finds her hiding in a toilet stall and helps her out. He drops his towel right by the door for her to wear and clears the rest of the guys from the room by asking if his penis was crooked. Good thinking Lewis.

Presenting Marti
Marti is officially introduced to the team as the newest member of the Hellcats. Coach Vanessa Hodge tells the team that if they do not qualify for championships that their program will be cut. It is just like Glee, but without the singing, and with cheerleader, and in college, and not with misfits. So not so much like Glee but I think you get my point. Vanessa says that they need to change things up and start improvising their routines more instead of going by the book. Marti leads them in a soul filled cheer/dance with a lot of hip movements and Alice is sulking in the corner. Especially when her boy Lewis starts grinding up on Marti.

Later Marti explains to Savannah why she quit gymnastics. I was expecting something like Save the Last Dance where her father died on the way to a meet or something like that. It was just that her mother freaked her out at meets so she quit because she was too mental. Alice heard this conversation and the one about Lewis liking Marti and goes to the bar to invite Marti's mom to the competition. Seriously, what a bitch.

So i really liked the show. It was cliche in some ways but also refreshing in others. Not all the girls on the team are bitchy, only just Alice really. They really seem like a tightknit team which is also nice. So what did you guys think of the show? Did you enjoy it, will you keep watching? Let me know, let me know.
