Nothing can or ever will replace Gilmore Girls in my heart!!! I liked the pilot and will definitely check it out again, but I will never love a show like I did GG! :(( I miss it so much!
As an avid GG fan, I was not all that impressed with Bunheads. It felt like Sutton Foster's character was trying too hard to sound like Lorelai Gilmore. And why are there no black/Latina/Asian ballet dancers in the main group of four -- the lack of diverity is really alarming.
Wry, witty, relevant, poignant, smart, engrossing, fast moving, and with character honing (especially Fanny's who is coming from the outside IN) this show should be a long staple. Ms Foster is a chameleon who really delivers the complexity of her troubled character. I just hope they use the poor dead guy as a ghost of some sort. He really was a sweetheart character.
I really enjoyed Bunheads and will continue to watch it. I'm over 55 and found that it had something for everyone (love Fanny). What a breath of fresh air! Delightful!
I never saw Gilmore Girls. Actually I watch very little television other than old movies but when I read an article about "Bunheads" and learned that it was starring Sutton Foster I had to watch. I saw her in "Anything Goes" on Broadway and was knocked over by her talent. I believe this is a real winner - fast, sharp, funny repartee, interesting characters, and Iâ€™m sure we will get to see Sutton strut her stuff. That alone will make watching the show well worth it. She is also a wonderful comedic actress. Good luck Sutton and cast. Break a leg, or two, or three.
I absolutely loved this show. My daughter was in from out of state, and we started to flip the channel after Secret Life, but it caught our attention from the get-go. We were actually laughing out loud during parts of the show. I am also a little disappointed that they killed off the husband, as I thought the chemistry between these two characters made the show. I will continue to watch to see if they can top the premiere last night.
show will repeat tonight.
As a mom of a dancer, would be nice to see a couple of the dancer moms in the mix. Should make for some great comedy.
Love the story line about the girl with the imperfect body, but yearns to dance. I think alot of young dancer students can relate to that. Good show, but what's with the Joffrey Ballet auditioning for a summer program scholorship? Been there, done that on "Dance Moms".
I, too was surprised at how much I enjoyed it (especially since my Mom called and said how stupid it was). I plan to keep watching!
I'm pretty sure Hubble is dead. With him out of the way, the story is all about Michelle, Fanny and the students.Sorry to see him go, though!
Gilmore Girls still remains to be my #1 favorite show and of course, I had to check out Bunheads. The writing is as great as it was in Gilmore Girls and I love that about it! Yes, there are definitely similarities between the two. Michelle easily reminds me of Lorelai and at times I caught myself thinking the character of Fanny was Emily. But I really appreciate those similarities. I feel like we're in Ms. Patty's world in Stars Hollow or something. I'm just really appreciating its similarities with Gilmore but still having its own identity. And I was definitely hooked at the end when you realize that the relationship that's going to be explored here is really that between Michelle and Fanny.
Surprisingly enjoyable show. Somehow kept things family oriented while still addressing adult themes of sex, marriage, jealousy, settling for something less and more. Had moments of real joy, laughter and poignancy. It is not meant to be "realistic" along every line story, but it none-the-less seems very real. Well written and amazingly well cast - especially among the younger folks who avoid the typical Disney trope that saying something louder equates to funnier.
