    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I wanted to like this. It's snappy enough and pretty and has actors with charm but not overly beautiful, which I am usually a fan of, but it is just painfully over the top with some crazy characters who don't shut up and others who don't ever express themselves. Is it just me, or are characters speaking too fast these days, spinning out all sorts of eclectic references to make cleverer-than-thou jokes? And the only male character (of the first two episodes) dies.... leaving us with a whole world of sniping, cranky women and girls. Any show that has ballet dancing to Tom Waits and jokes about making **** napkins with the Dalai Lama's face on them is maybe trying just a bit too hard. Expand

    While watching Bunheads, the thing that I thought about over and over again was the similarity between the show and the horrendous Turkish soaps. Bunheads, doesn't have a realistic plot, the dots just do not connect. Why would a promising ballet move to Vegas? Why would she marry her stalker? How is she 25 years old? And mostly why would ABC Family order this Lifetime-type show while theWhile watching Bunheads, the thing that I thought about over and over again was the similarity between the show and the horrendous Turkish soaps.

And mostly why would ABC Family order this Lifetime-type show while the network is clearly all about teenagers? Maybe I just don't like the whole genre, and therefore I didn't enjoy the pilot, but I know that I'm never gonna watch it again. Expand

    At last, Sasha is less a collection of TV teenager tropes and more convincingly a Sherman-Palladino creation.

    It's worth the effort to figure out what this offbeat cast of characters is up to.

    A show that is beautiful and sweet, funny and touching.
