Training to be an Olympic gymnast is excruciatingly hard work and leaves little time for anything else in a preteen's life. Fellow female gymnasts and friends Payson (Ayla Kell), Kaylie (Josie Loren), and Lauren (Cassie Scerbo) have trained together for years at the Rocky Mountain Gymnastic Training Center, better known as "The Rock." The three top-ranked young women are in line to represent their team at Nationals, and, if they perform well, their placement in the top 12 will send them on to their ultimate goal of competing in the 2012 Olympic Games. The girls' lives revolve around training and they are bound by strict rules that forbid boyfriends, jobs, and any real social life. Their sacrifices are huge, but absolutely essential in creating and maintaining the intense focus and determination necessary for competing at the Olympic level. Despite the best efforts of the girls and their families to avoid distractions, every member of The Rock is shaken up when new girl and unknown gymnast Emily (Chelsea Hobbs) joins the gym on a scholarship and seems to have a shot at making Nationals; coach Marty (Erik Palladino) suddenly leaves the team; new coach Sasha (Neil Jackson) takes over; and personal problems threaten to sidetrack each of them. Even Coach Sasha's firm hand and zero tolerance for mistakes can't protect the girls from the real-life ups and downs that come with growing up, family life, love, injuries, and financial instability. What the girls learn as they struggle to focus on their gymnastic training and Olympic dreams are some very difficult lessons about friendship, family, love, control, and being part of a team. This extended edition contains the first nine episodes of the series as well as a 10th extended finale episode, "All That Glitters." Bonus features include six deleted scenes and a 9-minute making-of featurette with interview footage of the four major stars as well as writer Holly Sorensen, gymnastic coach Carolyn Day, and stunt coordinator Greg Barnett. ABC Family's Make It or Break It series offers powerful insight into the challenging sport of women's gymnastics, but it's much more than a chronicle of the sport: it's also a captivating series about growing up and the search to discover what's truly important in one's life. (Ages 14 and older due to mature thematic elements and language) --Tami Horiuchi

One of the most impressive drama series I have seen on abc Family with a solid script, really good editing and also solid performances by the show's talent, "Make It or Break It" has become one of my favorite drama series to catch on television.

"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST SHOW ON ABC Family!! March 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is THE best show on ABC Family now. I use to never watch it (season one and half of season two). And then my friend made me sit there after Secret Life and watch MIOBI. I literally fell in love with it. I kicked myself in the butt for not watching it when it first aired. "Never judge a book by its cover." Well I judged this show before I even watched it. And I regret ever doing that. BECAUSE, I LOVE this show now!! There's so much trueness and drama to this show. They actually bring a gymnists life to reality. When you watch it, you feel like you are there with the characters battling all the challenges or victories that gymnastics brings you. Also, the tradegies that could and DO happen to everyday gymnists. WATCH this show. It is well worth it!! You will fall head over heals. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Only first 10 episodes March 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
Absolutely terrific show. But this is only the first 10 episodes. The other 10 can be gotten through iTunes.

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).

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have not already bought this... February 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you have not already bought this, please be aware that Season 1 volume 2 does not have the English subtitles for hearing impaired that are included ONLY on this volume 1. I bought this and loved it, got Volume 2 and no subtitles. I am hearing impaired and am very disappointed I cannot continue my set or enjoy it without any captions.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovin the series, where's the soundtrack? August 20, 2010
By Rebecca
I'm hooked! Great series, I can't wait to find out what happens next. A slight tendency to focus on the negative more often than the positive--even these women's triumphs are brought down by petty rivalries and conflicts over boys. It's too bad that Lauren Tanner is simultaneously the most consistent, watchable, non-prissy character on the show and the nastiest. It's like watching every dirty secret of the women's movement splayed across the screen for all to see--both cathartic and disheartening.
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?
