    I caught the last half of Mystery Girls… I can’t even believe that show got picked up! It’s soo uncomfortably bad! The writing, the sets, the acting.. Jenny Garth is super cute, she is Way too good for this however it’s right up Tori’s alley..
    I will be shocked if it lasts a full season

    I thought young and hungry was cute and funny. Emily Osment is adorable in the show. The acting is good. I found the pap smear joke a little distasteful but otherwise this show will definitely be a big hit. I liked it better than mystery girls. I just wish it wasn’t up against So You Think You Can Dance.
