The pilot was a little flawed, but there is a lot of potential here. It’s Election, High School Musical, Breakfast Club, and about 15 other movies rolled into one, but the cast is very likable, and the vocal talent is pretty impressive. There are cliches and stereotypes galore, but I can be a sucker for that kind of stuff sometimes.
Oh yeah, the female lead makes the oddly hot category as well. As a 42 year old guy, I’m certainly not their target demographic, but I was intrigued.
The addition of Kristen Chenoweth and Victor Garber (as has been announced) when it starts in the fall could really put it through the roof.
