Network: ABC Family
This is not a very good show. That would be saying too much. But it’s actually not as bad as you’d think. It really is sort of lacking in the focus department and every episode is pretty much the same thing. It’s pretty important to say that this is aimed at a young teen demographic, of which I am not even remotely a part of, so my judgement may vary wildly from the intended audience.
There’s a lot of things I find about this show that are very watchable though. Although the dialogue is trying too hard to be witty Samuels is pretty good with what she’s given, and scenes with her and Chloe’s mom Amy Pietz are the highlight of the show. The mother/daughter relationship is played really well by them both. I initially enjoyed the character of Chloe’s friend Amy played by Grace Phipps but in more recent episodes it seems like she’s going in a different direction. As for the Mai side of Chloe’s life I’m not really crazy about any of the casting there.
Overall it’s a decently watchable show, probably more-so for a teen that I wouldn’t be super quick to write off. Think a very very dumb Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
