The only thing that is wrong with this series is...the story!
Does the world of ballet need an attempted murder mystery? No.
Just let the kids dance! Or, like lemmings, let them all jump off that bloody roof and put us all [and them] out of [their] and our misery.
Cliché follows cliché, stereotype upstages stereotype...without any let-up whatsoever. It's exhausting...but, when the kids [actually] get to dance, it is exhilarating.
This is more How to Get Away with Murder than Fame...shame, it could have been the new Fame-like Glee - instead, a contrived and convoluted series of bed-hopping, erroneous accusations, acidic jealousy, class inequality and, ass-bonking...reign supreme.
It really is [acutely] terrible...but, completely addictive, for all the wrong reasons...you really want to see the next episode just to see how low, how bad it can possibly become...it doesn't disappoint in the slightest.
Great bodies, lovely buttocks...and, some fine choreography - just not enough to save this from sheer derisive laughter!
And...it ends with the potential of a second series! There's been a murder! [Not to spoil anything...but, the victim so deserved it!]
The world of an elite ballet academy and charts the rise and fall of young adults who live far from their homes, each standing on the verge of greatness or ruin.
