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?
