Eye Opener

This show exhibited terrible character in leadership roles, lack of common sense as far as having enough uniforms for the amount of girls selected to be flag twirlers. The band was phenomenal in all aspects, section leaders were decent. Just if youre going to try to encourage somebody, let it be genuine...not cause you feel like thats what youre supposed to say, its meaningless. Might as well keep it to yaself at that point. Flag twirling captain really needs to look into the mirror, she is big just like the other girls, rude, disrespectful...talks about people while they are present, like they arent there but barks orders just because she is upperclassman. Its okay to correct a freshman, but to call them dumb...especially in front of the squad, is unprofessional. It was obvious she never cared for any of the girls that had to leave the squad, she shouldve just shut up. Somebody chose you to LEAD BY EXAMPLE. ON AND OFF THE FIELD. In college you are to graduate, and are expected to be professional by the end of it...youre a veteran and you just act like a bully big ass sister. Do better.

"Expert Review" left out a few details.

After finding very few parental guides on this show, it was relieving to find something on this site. However, the "expert" reviewer left out a few details (like the uncensored religious expletive in episode two and the skin-tight outfits).
