“Wait, you live with your mother like a serial killer?…”



Amy Sherman-Palladino’s writing

…is one of those little things that remind me life is good.

La forma de escribir de Amy Sherman-Palladino

…es una de esas pequeñas cosas que me hacen recordar lo buena que es la vida.

For those of you who don’t know, Amy Sherman-Palladino is the person who brought Gilmore Girls to life through her writing.

In case you don’t recall, I professed my undying love and admiration for the show Gilmore Girls in another post and so it is an understatement to say that I was ecstatic when I heard that Sherman-Palladino was writing another show. This new show is called “Bunheads” and it airs on ABC Family. The show is about 30-something year old Michelle who has wasted her enormous talent for dancing being a showgirl in Vegas for the past few years. One night, after an audition gone bad, she impulsively marries Hubble, a nice man with stalking tendencies, and moves to Paradise with him. In Paradise, she meets Hubble’s mother–who he lives with–Hubble’s ex-girlfriend–who is still in love with him–and a few young dancers who take lessons at her new mother-in-law’s academy.

In my opinion, Sherman-Palladino did it again. The plot of the show is good enough, but her writing is as superb as ever and, once again, makes the show stand out more than any other aspect. Just as an example, in any other regular ABC Family show Michelle would have merely exclaimed “Wait, you live with you mother?” when she found out she would be living with her husband AND her mother-in-law. Only Sherman-Palladino would think of adding “like a serial killer” and that is why I admire her so.
