If the kids like it please disregard this.
First let me say that I saw the episode about "managing moms" at writing conference at Ryerson University.
I couldn't believe how BAD it was. The acting was terrible and waaay to over the top but that is not necessarily all the fault of the actors as the writing was not believable at all. This is not the first time i've seen such horrendous dialogue but it is the first time where the acting made it worse then it already was.
My buddy who graduated the A/V program at Ryerson made a comment that it was so mechanical that it had no life whatsoever (or something to that effect). I should probably mention that I did laugh (or smile) at some clever jokes but that does not save the production on the whole.
What was sad was the panel presenting it seemed to be "gushing" over it and that it it was such a great idea that it just had to be produced, The producer/writer/director was saying how he tried to produce it ten years ago and it kept getting rejected. Maybe he should have taken the hint.
I do apologize for being so harsh but I felt it needed to be spoken. But since it is for the kids it is really their views that count, not mine.
