Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing is new and cool tonight, but I have to be honest: I’m having a real love-hate relationship with High School Musical: Get in the Picture. On one hand, I applaud the fact that they’re actually teaching kids on the show, giving them tools to not only become better performers but better people. On the other hand, it’s boring!
Watching the two chorus members unenthusiastically play tug-of-war with an imagined rope is so snooze-worthy. I did enjoy the musical numbers, I always do but I was unhappy to see one of my favorites, Anthony, sent to the chorus. This kid has too much heart for the chorus! I guess I’ll give it another week and see.
Other than that, my night was taken up by the amazing men’s gymnastics finals. Wow, what a show that turned out to be. Happy Chinese team, happy American team and the Japanese taking silver with frowns on their faces. Interesting.
