Whether you love'em or hate'em, boy bands are a reality. From the Beatles to O-Town, they are a staple to the music industry what beans are to rice. Mtv thought so, and decided to parody them in this formulaic recipe that's worked for record producers since The Monkees. No one should take this show too seriously, like the Backstreet Boys did. I find it hysterical to see the actor Kevin Farley in a band of cute young boys, which makes the joke even funnier as he attempts to sing and dance along with them, looking more like their dad than older brother. Alex Solowitz plays the bad boy very tongue-in-cheek, like a black guy stuck in a white guy's body. Evan Farmer is comfortable with his looks to parody the hunk stereotype without being too hammy or squeaky-clean. Noah Bastian has the comic wit to pull off the shy one, which really comes off as the dumb one without being irritating. Michael Cuccione was the sweetest one of the bunch, the kid brother who wanted to be accepted as a man, and was accepted for being who he was. The actors playing their managers lampooned the reality of our idea of producers. Since the passing of Michael Cuccione, the show ended 2 years ago, but I was fortunate enough to tape a majority of their episodes from late night tv. It was fun to be a background performer before the series aired, and I'll be watching my tapes now and then, just to laugh at the industry whenever I feel like it.
