Like the original series, The Alectrix is a mildly entertaining show that offers a look into what goes into making and promoting an all-female band. But this time viewers actually get to see a more legitimate process by which groups are formed and produced to be successful in the industry. Joe Simpson's appearance also ensures the presence of some talented singers in the mix.

Some teens may be interested in watching, but thanks to some former cast members' attempts to rehash old conflicts -- and introduce new ones -- it's still hard to take them seriously. Their behavior also suggests that their goals are more about being reality celebs than actually becoming successful musical performers.
