Hellcats S&S #1: Please give us some more!

Hellcats
spoilers & speculation



L a t e s t


1x04 Kissing & Karaoke

* We meet Savannah’s father, Parker Monroe.
* Savannah’s sister is now named Charlotte, not Tassie.
* When Savannah’s family surprises her in the middle of a kiss with Dan, she introduces him as her boyfriend, much to his surprise. Mr. Monroe invites the couple over for a family dinner, which quickly turns into family drama.
* What exactly is the relationship between Savannah and Dan? That’s just what they’re trying to figure out.
* Wanda starts an Open Mike Night at the pub where she works, and Marti joins forces with Lewis to help her put it together. Will Marti take the stage and sing?

(not for certain)


Review Pilot.

It’s the rare pilot that can lay out character and plot for an entire series without being heavyhanded and relying on cliches. Fortunately, despite a few wince-inducing moments and some weak dialogue, it’s hard not to like Marti. Her ambitions are tempered with just enough sweetness to keep the character relatable. Even when she’s dealing with her irresponsible mother, Marti’s exasperation is tempered with love. Her professed dream to become a lawyer so she can “move far, far away” is bittersweet.

Next, meet Savannah. Captain of the Hellcats, Lancer’s nationally competitive cheer squad, she’s all pep and ambition. When Marti, pissed off at the loss of her scholarship, lashes out at Savannah, the petite dynamo defends her sport as the two engage in an all-out shouting match.
Speaking of angst, just as Marti starts feeling secure that she can stay in school, she finds out that if the squad doesn’t earn a spot at Nationals in next week’s Qualifiers (awesome! you get one week to “rehearse”, Marti!), the university is going to pull the plug on the whole program, scholarships and all.

The rest of the cast is rounded out with Hellcats Lewis (Marti’s potential love interest, played by Michael Challenger); Alice (Marti’s nemesis/Lewis’s ex, played by Heather Hemmens); Patty (the one not worried about carbs, played by Elena Elsovolana); and Vanessa (Hellcats’ coach, played by Sharon Leal). We also have Gail O’Grady as Marti’s mom and Matt Barr as Dan, the Townie pining for Marti

Yes, Hellcats plays up to a ton of cliches in the first episode, and it’s a little wobbly on the dismount, but there are sparks of originality and a massively appealing cast, so there’s hope it will stick the landing. Setting it at a university instead of a high school provides opportunities for some more adult storylines, a few of which are hinted at in the pilot, while still allowing it to be fun. .

Mel Thanks for opening
I have some spoilers That only confirms that Savannah/Dan are hapenning and I'm in heaven

Quote:
Carina Mackenzie of Zap2It caught up with Ashley Tisdale and Aly Michalka at the 2010 TCA Summer Press Tour. They give her the scoop about the Marti/Dan/Savannah love triangle.

The relationship won’t come easy, though, because Savannah isn’t exactly an open book. “She’s complicated,” Tisdale scenes. “In some scenes, I want to really go there with emotions and get emotional, but she’s really closed off, so I have to stop myself. It’s hard to keep everything inside, but she’s that character. She’s not open to everybody. She doesn’t let anyone in.”

As for how Marti feels about her new friend dating her old friend, Michalka tells us, “It’s really weird for Marti. She’s completely convinced that she and Dan are just friends, and she’s trying to be a good friend. She helps Savannah get ready for the date, but inside she’s thinking, ‘Oh, my God, what is going on here?’ She doesn’t know what to feel. It’s weird for her, because he’s always the person she’s told her secrets to, and now she’s watching him date her friend and she doesn’t have anyone to talk to about it.”

"Hellcats" gets a lesbian cheerleader
Esovolova will play Patty "The Wedge" Wedgerman. How did she get that nickname? I guess finding out gives us one more reason to tune in. Patty is described as "ballsy, fearless and cheerfully profane" and is the "base" for the Hellcats. (I'm told that "base" is a great position for any aspiring lesbian.)

Yes, Dan/Savannah!

I don't know if they're to be long term or not, but I feel like they'll garner a large fanbase, and perhaps they'll become long term, maybe even endgame.

I'm sort of nuts, really. The show hasn't even aired yet and I'm talking about endgame. Ah, well. I always pick my endgames early in the... game. This one just happens to be extremely early.

I'm sure Dan/Savannah will stay longer and cause some drama and all that good, but still the fanbase will be pretty big for them. So my guess is that they will stay around.
