Hellcats Review: Girl Fight!

at .

There’s nothing like a Hellcats cat fight.

The latest installment of Hellcats gave u viewers everything we were looking for: relationship drama, awesome cheerleading, and most of all, cat fights.

On “The Prisoner’s Song," we got a little bit of everything. Marti’s school work led her to the local prison to meet with a convict, which led to an impromptu singing performance with Marti and guest star Ben Cotton. I know our girl Aly Michalka has talent, but I hope she doesn’t start singing in every episode (that’s what we have Glee for).

I would rather her singing skills pop up every once in a while so they don’t feel forced. It’s better to keep the performances for scenes such as open mic night.

Hand Shaking Cheerleaders

This episode finally did it. I am now fully invested in the adult love triangle with Vanessa, Derrick, and Red.

I guess it took them acting like children (i.e. punching someone in a bar) to get me hooked. Speaking of the punch heard round the world... I actually had to rewind my DVR to make sure Red’s head didn’t spin off after Derrick delivered that right hook. Here is hoping for some juicy scenes with Red and Vanessa to keep the storyline moving forward.

The majority of “The Prisoner’s Song” was focused on the Hellcats completing their bid video. I thought that the scenes of them performing outside under the bridge were awesome, if they could have hit their stunts. Dan Patch was right, it would have made for a great video. Once the squad pulled it together, we got to see the talented cast performing awesome moves that were insanely hard.

Having been a cheerleader, I can say that those stunts deserve a bid to Nationals.

We were pretty close to having a throw down between Alice and Savannah this week. It’s clear that Alice isn’t afraid to fight dirty, but I am not ruling Savannah out. She can be pretty rough when she wants to be. This rivalry is bound to continue long enough that we get an actual cat fight, and I can’t wait.

All in all, “The Prisoner’s Song” was a solid episode. Although there was no mention of the Alice/Lewis/Marti situation, we had plenty of relationship drama to keep us occupied. What did you think, TV Fanatics?

Hellcats Season 1 Episode 5 Quotes

Vanessa: I'm sick of the games.
Red: Me too, but you play the hand that your dealt.

See, the Hellcats are the Beatles. Savannah is John Lennon, Alice is co-captain so she's Paul McCartney. They've got this rivalry going that has to be kept in check or it could break up the band. But you, you're not really in the band. Sorry dude, you're Yoko.
