For  my  first  television  blog,  it’s  the  CW  Network’s  newest  one  called  Hellcats.   This  show  is  centered  at  the  fictional  Lancer  University   in  Memphis,   Tennesee,  where  we  Marti  Perkins  (Alyson  “Aly”  Michalka),  a  pre-law  student/ex-gymnast   who  is  looking  after  her  widowed  mother  while  attending  school.  She  then  gets   the  biggest  shock   of  her  college  career  when  she  is  told  that  she  has  her  law  scholarship.  While  she  is  searching  for  a  new  one,  the  university’s  cheerleading  captain  Savannah  Monroe   (Ashley  Tisdale)  turns  in  a  form  to  announce  a  cheerleading  scholarship.  Marti  dismisses  cheerleaders  as  nothing  but  “football  groupies”,  much  to  Savannah’s  anger.  But,  Marti  blows  everyone  away  at  tryouts,  gets  on  the  team,  and  moves  into  building  that  the  squad  uses  as  a  dorm.  That,  and  she  gets  to  share  a  room  with  Savannah!  Now,  I  know  that  there  are  some  of  you  who  saw  last  night’s  premiere,  and  the  promotion  for  it  and  thought  of  it  as  some  macho  male  fantasy.  Well  let  me  say  this,  this  show  in  my  opinion,  one  of  the  television’s  next  big  hit  like  Glee,  The  Big  Bang  Theory, the  original  Star  Trek,  and  countless  others.  This  show  is  very  original,  not  unlike  the  dreck  that  has  polluted  most  of  television  in  this  day  and  age.  And  for  those  of  you  who  think  that  this  show  won’t  last,  give  it  time  and  you’ll  see  that  Alyson  and  Ashley  are  much  bigger  stars  than  you  think.
