A crazy bad review. I think this person has gone a bit off the deep end, but I understand why he didn’t really like the show. I couldn’t keep any of my male friends in the room while it was on. The girls seemed OK with it.
My complaints about the show were all about structure. I think the people within the show seem interesting but the pacing and storyline seemed jumpy and unfocused. I didn’t really understand what the show was about, it had no through line. I mean, the review was supposed to be the through line, but I never even got the sense of what sort of timeline this was happening in. They should make everything feel like “A week in the life” or something, even if they’re faking more interesting events into a week than actually happen.
And it was frustrating, a lot of the people who seem really interesting, I don’t feel like I got to see at all. Not much Curtis or Sam or Kerri. And while I like Blythe, she can be a little grating if she’s all you get to see for an hour — and I’d have liked to hear more from her that didn’t sound like she was reading something the producer had written for her to say. This didn’t feel very real at all.
I’m hoping the next show will be a lot better because it’ll be all about Blythe trying to make a comeback from this review, which will give it some cohesion.
I think that Blythe being on TV is great, I think it’s good to have some females on TV who aren’t thin, gorgeous, or nice but still manage to be talented and successful. Blythe is very much a woman in a man’s world and she’s really rough around the edges, I just hope the show will let us see what’s beneath the gruff, pink exterior.
Also, isn’t Curtis the cutest thing? My roommate thinks he should be a model or go on Project Runway.
