Hellcats Review: Sexting and Shaking!

by at . Comments

Simply put, “Pledging My Love” was exactly what I was hoping for.

Hellcats viewers were treated to some great choreography, Alice in action and some hot hook-ups, even if they were mere fantasies.

This episode was directed by Debbie Allen, notably known for her work on Fame. She hit the spot and provided an hour full of excitement, including two sequences that might have been the two best scenes of dancing thus far.

Group Dance

The main arc focused on Alice and her naked pictures, which made their way around school after she had emailed them to Jake. It was nice to see another side to her; that behind the tough exterior is another girl who can be embarrassed and upset.

Alice comes off so strong, and even in a time of hurt, she was still able to prevail without much of a scratch. I have to hand it to Heather Hemmens, who plays this character flawlessly.

With the focus on Alice, we were provided the chance to see Jake and Lewis work together. We knew that these two were friends before and I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes with this trio. Alice is a lucky girl to have this pair protect her back.

Derrick and the Hellcats worked together to conjure up a dance routine so he could propose to Vanessa. Although this was completely heartfelt and fun to watch, I can’t help but wish she didn’t say yes so easily. Vanessa’s chemistry with Red is undeniable, including the tension they had after the close encounter of a kiss. Her dream sequence with Red was HOT and we need to see that actually happen.

Sometimes Savannah is a little too dramatic for my liking, but her slapping Dan across the face was perfect. Understandably, other storylines took the floor tonight, but there was no mention of Charlotte and her pregnancy. What’s the point of dropping a bomb shell like that and forgetting about it the next week?

This was a solid hour for our favorite cheerleaders. Although we didn’t see any actual cheerleading, we got some dancing and a spotlight on Alice. I'll take that any time. Review my favorite Hellcats quotes from "Pledging My Love" and sound off on it now!

Go, Alice!

The show has some merit, but Vanessa and Red are really the only reason I watch. The love triangle is cliche plot-wise, but the chemistry is really well acted.

I really like Red and at the same time I don't want Vanessa and Derrick to break up! It's confusing me, that and the fact that I am also completely torn with the whole Marti/Dan/Savannah triangle!

I think the irony would be complete to discover that Charlotte's Baby-Daddy is Savannah's Ex. - the one that their Mama likes, who's name escapes me at the moment. I'm sure the subject will come up again, and soon.

I would expect nothing less than wonderful choreography in an episode directed by Debbie Allen. It was also great to see one of the "grown ups" on the show dancing. Derrick was great. I can't believe that you didn't even mention the scenes with Julian in your review. I have to admit one of the reasons I started watching this show was that I heard Gale Harold would be on and I was about to give up hope but he was fully involved in last night's episode and his character was fleshed out a little more. Overall, I enjoyed this episode a great deal.

I am in love with Vanessa and Red and also Jake and Alice. They have the chemistry on the show to me. If they do bring back up that pregnancy story, I hope Savannah moms find a ultrasound and immediately think of it to be Savannahs. That would be drama right there.

In my opinion Savannah and Dan were over too quickly. What is the point of putting two characters together just to rip them apart so quickly in the first part of the first season. I am sure or at least I hope there is a perfectly good explanation of all this. Oh and please do not put Dan and Marti back together. That would be bad for the show on many levels (again in my opinion.)
