Bunheads - Better Luck Next Year

We both thought Bunheads was weird this week, in that it felt really disjointed and choppy. There were good individual scenes, particularly the dream sequence where we got to see Sutton Foster do her musical theater thing, but things didn’t flow. The show made the obvious Game of Thrones reference, since the visiting ballet studio was called “Joffrey.” We usually appreciate Game of Thrones being relevant to EVERYTHING, but Bunheads totally spoiled season one! Way to go. Michelle has some balls, trying to seduce all those handymen, but we like that Fanny was the one who got the job done. We liked the floor guy. He seemed sweet. Fanny should get some of that action. We are starting to enjoy Truly on this show. It was funny how she’s such a spineless jellyfish (always going with the majority) and is an expert on what other people need. The joke we liked the best was when Michelle muttered about David Copperfield being a top-notch magician.

It was so sad and stupid of Boo’s mom to leave that cake in the fridge. Sasha showed her nice side again though, which we appreciate. A huge weakness of the episode was that the other two dancers weren’t in it at all. We want to see more of the dancing girls, show. We also need to see some sort of structure emerge. There was so much meandering with all Michelle's stuff, curtain rods, faxes, and weird little arguments. Can Michelle teach at the studio already?!! The high points of this episode mostly involved Boo or Michelle/Fanny talking about Boo. Probably our favorite part was when Fanny kept sending Boo back in wigs so that the audition people would see Boo and her dancing, and not her larger bottom half. It was a sweet moment. Overall, this episode was less boring than last week’s and less forced than the week before, but still not what we want to see from this show.

Episode grade: B


  1. I thought this was a pretty good episode. This show is becoming one of my favs!

    1. Hope it sticks around...not looking good. We're enjoying it, but it could get better

    2. Are the ratings bad?

    3. It's doing better than The Secret Life in both viewers and demo. Though, I think The Secret Life was doing far better when it was a fresh show.

    4. They aren't great. And yeah, shows like this usually lose viewers as they go along. Secret Life's viewers are faithful. Bunheads' viewers are mostly still checking it out.

  2. I'm still checking it out. It's Citizen Kane compared to Secret Life.
