"Make it or Break It" is a new abc family drama series which began in June 2009, and with its debut and run "Make It or Break It" proved to be successful as it received the second best series ratings for the network. The first season consists of a total of 20 episodes, and the first ten episodes are featured in "Make It or Break It: Extended Edition" on DVD.
Created and written by Holly Sorensen, "Make It or Break It" is a captivating drama series that revolves around a female gymnastics team and a girl named Emily Kmetko (played by Chelsea Hobbs, "Beach Girls", "Pasadena", "Lords of Dogtown") from Fresno who practiced gymnastics at a public gym at the YWCA and showed impressive talent.
Because of her talent, she receives the opportunity to attend one of the top gymnastic schools in the country known as "The Rock" (Rocky Mountain Gymnastics Training Center). But life for Emily is difficult as her mother is a single, unemployed mother trying to take care of Emily and her disabled brother. So, Emily tries to balance her life working at a pizza restaurant (secretly), while preparing to make the gymnastics competition with her goals to make it to nationals and become part of the US Olympic Team.
But life is not easy for Emily, the girls of "The Rock" are not exactly welcoming to her especially Lauren Tanner (played by Cassie Scerbo, "Dance Revolution", "Soccer Mom"), who despises her. Especially since Emily is a threat to the top three who want to make it to the Regionals.Read more ›
I got pretty tired of the Carter-Kaylie-Loren triangle, which last till the last episode and provides a cliffhanger for the next season (starting in June). I suspect the creators did this because most of the fans of this series are young girls. And my youngest niece tells me he is WAY CUTE (her words).
Please write to ABC Family Channel, Paul Lee, President, 3800 West Alameda Ave., Burbank, CA 91505 and let them know your concerns, Thank you!
Hopefully they will include subtitles when Season 2 is released soon.
The show's certainly unique in that it portrays professional athletes in all the strife, difficulties, and challenges they face, rather than simply the joy of the sport. These girls struggle with bulimia, whether to have sex, the consequences of having sex and the shame of virginity, economic difficulties...they are in every way normal teenagers. However, thanks to some EXCELLENT writing [best I've seen on a show since Grey's Anatomy, and more enjoyable sans blood and guts] these girls seem much more NORMAL, strikingly, than do most teenagers featured on dramatic television.
All in all, a great series, and it'll only get better. Right?
p.s. props to the writers for keeping the boys dreamy yet realistic, and keeping everyone consistently characterized, with normal problems and real-life concerns! We love you.
One MAJOR question, though--when's the soundtrack coming out?! I absolutely adore the music in the show, and I can't wait to be able to buy it all...so, when can I do that?
Please make that happen?
