Bunheads will air for the second time on ABCFamily tonight. On the last episode the main character, Michelle (Sutton Foster), became disillusioned with her career as a professional dancer and wound up entering a major transition, via her shotgun wedding and the road trip to that followed. Fortunately for the viewing audience, her new husband dies at the end of the episode – so we will not have to experience the intended awkwardness of their relationship any longer – whew!!
The ballet characters are predictable; hopefully they will develop as the season progresses. My fingers are crossed that Michelle’s transition proves to be interesting as well. So far, I like her relationship with her feisty mother-in-law, Fanny, but I can’t decide whether I will love it or hate it if she discovers she’s pregnant from the single time she and the belated had relations–but I’m definitely getting ahead of myself!
Tonight’s episode will revolve around the response to the tragedy and loss created by death in the tiny town of Paradise, and will apparently contain some very pretty dancing. I will be watching and tweeting. Follow me and join the conversation: @kristinstorey @diydancer #Bunheads
