A New T.V. Show For Ballet

     "Bunheads," a new T.V. show about ballet dancers, premiers tonight on ABC Family.  I was excited when I first found out about this new series that will center around one of my passions.  I even wondered if it could be one of the select few that I follow.  I'm not attracted to most of what's available on T.V., but occasionally there are some good shows I enjoy.  I'll admit, I get so interested in the story and the characters that, at least during the time I'm watching the show, I almost feel as though I'm visiting their world.
     Sadly though, the few clips I've seen of "Bunheads" failed to impress me.  Maybe I'm just overly picky, but I started to lose hope that it would be any good.  Of course, I've seen so little that it's probably not fair for me to claim that I've given it an adequate chance.  So I will watch the first episode tonight.  I promise I'll keep an open mind and that I'll be willing to admit if my initial evaluation was wrong.
     What do you think?  Are you going to watch it?  Are you looking forward to it?  Do you think it will be worthwhile?


  1. I am going to watch it. I pretty much get drawn into anything that has to do with ballet... : )
    Have you watched Breaking Pointe, the reality show about Ballet West? I've been enjoying it. I think there is going to be another reality show with the Miami City Ballet, too.

    1. I know what you mean, I'm drawn to most anything ballet-related too. I haven't seen breaking pointe yet but I plan on watching it online. I didn't hear anything about a reality show with Miami City Ballet but that is exciting! Do you know anything else about it? Like when it premieres and what channel it's going to be on?
