When I first started watching this episode I thought it was going to be like the prior 2 where the main girl was nerdy and not liked. I was so wrong because this girl wasn't a nerd just Hippie or maybe new age but still not liked. Once she was sent to NYC and meets her coach Kat (founder of the Majorettes) the show went from same ole stuff to classic. It shows Alaric's transformation from a follower into a leader as she gets a band ready for her High School talent show. The song she writes actually very good and Kat helps her get a chorus in the song. Once Alaric is transformed for the performance she goes from Plain to hot (OK I love her new hair style) being an old school punk fan. The talent show performance for a band being together maybe 5 weeks is incredible.
I really wish MTV would play Alaric's song without the cut ins of People talking about Alaric.
