Whenever we want to quit this show, they give us more John Barrowman. It's an evil trick, if we've ever saw one.

Finally, The CW has created a show that those of us over the age of 13 can enjoy -- and there's not a single vampire in sight.

Sunday, April 5, 2009: Any Dream Will Do

This is hands-down my new favorite competitive reality show, but to say it is new is a little bit of a stretch, since this show aired in its entirety already in the UK in 2007. I could easily do a Google search and find out who won the opportunity to star in the title role of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat in London, but really, knowing the ending is only half of the fun of this series, which we're just now getting to watch stateside on BBC America.

Basically, it's a format that has been tried out here rather unsuccessfully with Grease: You're the One That I Want or that horrible High School Musical show or even with the Legally Blonde MTV thing. For some reason it works better in the UK and Canada, where they've had success with How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? and I'd Do Anything, which cast roles in West End productions of Sound of Music and Oliver!. There's all the typical fare: the audition rounds, the "school" round, the judges, the audience voting. For me, it's the perfect blend of musical theatre (which I love) and reality shows (which I also love).
