My review of "Hellcats" is as follows - "Hey, it's like watching Bring It On in several 42 minute sessions." And I'm good with that. That's right, I'll say it - I liked "Bring It On". "Hellcats" is a teen drama with really hot guys and bitter rivals and stupid angst and cheerleading stunts.
What's not to love?
I mean, I'm not rushing out to make icons and wallpapers or join a comm or anything, but it was fun.
Things of note - Tom Welling is listed only as the Executive Producer. Not producing or directing at all on this. Which, to me, means he let them give him buckets of money, in exchange for putting his name on it and sucking us Incestuous CW Orgy Cult Lovers into watching it.
Which is silly, cuz they had me at "cheerleaders". (For the record, I was never a cheerleader in my life and I hated the ones who attended my brief high school stint with a fiery passion. But as a person who enjoys watching a good dance competition, I've found the area of competitive cheerleading to be a hell of lot more interesting than what we had going on in my 250 person high school, 15 years ago.)
Also, cast members - Sharpay from High School Musical! She's awesome and no longer a blonde and I love it. Welcome to The Orgy, sweetheart.
hiyacynth's Space Husband - Chief from BSG.
Hey, it's That Guy from The OC who worked at The Newport Group.
And That Chick from Boston Public (but not the one who went on to "Heroes" and "Glee", the other one).
And returning to the Incestuous CW Orgy Cult (by which I mean, they are never allowed to leave, ever) Hot Principal from Buffy's season 7 and Psycho-Pretend-Brother from One Tree Hill's season 4! <--I spent the entire episode trying to figure out who that guy was and why I was afraid he was going to serial kill someone.
In Sum: Fun!
PS: Jonathan from Buffy/Doyle from Gilmore Girls has recently been on "Mad Men". I was most excited to see him.
PS2: Watching the Angel episode with the submarine, my sister pauses it to declare - "You know what would be a good movie? Zombies on a submarine."
To which I replied - "That's what they should call it too. Zombies On A Submarine! With the exclamation point."
That is all.
