Thursday, June 11, 2009: She’s Got the Look

Thursday, June 11, 2009: <I>She’s Got the Look</I>

Top Model for older ladies is back for a second season. Tonight's premiere (10 PM, TV Land) takes 20 semi-finalists to New York and puts them in a competition to make the top 10. These gals have to use what god gave them (or whatever they had the foresight to wear that day) to put together a look to impress the panel of judges in an impromptu runway show. It sounds kind of lame, but it is enjoyable. I didn't watch last year... for whatever reason, but I already watched a screener of the first episode of this season and knew right away that this would fill the void that Make Me a Supermodel has left in my life.

It's all about giving ladies who are over 35 a chance at a modeling gig, and some of these women are outright gorgeous and most of them have stories about how they focused to much on careers and families and didn't shoot for their dreams. It was a refreshing change of pace from the Top Model girls who are always like 19 and prone to stupid catfights about food or telephone usage. Sure there is still some drama (with a resident wacko and everything!) but it's a bit tamer and offers up an interesting perspective on things. I do worry that, like I do with most TV Land originals, my interest will wane as it goes along (and Big Brother monopolizes my life), but for now, I'm interested enough to set up a season pass on my TiVo, so that's something. Hopefully it will be able to tide me over until Top Model's season of the shorties starts in the fall.
