Amy Sherman-Palladino has a new show and it’s…, well it’s summer, that’s what it is, so I will watch pretty much anything. It is not so bad, though, and it has Kelly Bishop behaving a lot like Emily Gilmore, so I will give it points for that.
The show is about Michelle, a showgirl who lives in Vegas, whose marriage to a small-town guy will turn her life upside-down. After the wedding they move to his home town and, after her husband’s death, she will find herself the owner of a huge house and lands. She will then have to learn how to live in a small town and with her mother-in-law, Fanny. She is a ballet teacher, and nothing has really happened yet, but I suspect Michelle might get involved in the whole ballet thing.
As I say, it is not great, and the script is far from the witty lines of Gilmore Girls, but it is watchable. Probably not much to say for a show but it’s hot andall I want to do is sit on the couch and melt while watching something moderately entertaining.
