The 120 high school nerd who wants to be a football player
Christian, had me worrined this 120 lb kid wasnted to be MADE into a football player just to improve his social status. HHHHH. I just didn't see his motivation getting him what he wanted. Initally, I thought he wouldn't have the physical skills to make it, so I was pleasantly surprised. But then what happened? I don't know if it is teenagers in general but what happened Christian went to one practice then missed the next one cause his family took a long weekend trip to Martha's Vineyard. He didn't tell his footbal coach or his made coach and then thinks a wimpy apology will make things right.
What does surprise me is that Christian does stand up for himself and does tell people of but his timing is horrible, and doing that in a team sport where his has to prove himself a team player does not help win the respect of the team or coach. He runs a lot of laps.
What was funny was when his Made coach got him a blind date and he was instructed to act like a gentle man because girls like that. So what does he do. He goes through doors first practically closing them on his dates face. Laughs as his own jokes and has very poor conversation. In his own mind it was a great date. I felt sorry for the girl, and she was very generous in her confessional saying that Christian made her laugh. He has a lot to learn.
Toward the end after we learn that Christian's parents are sending him to boarding school, he says he will join the football team but I do not have high hopes. He eventually tells his Made coach that he is quitting football. I was expecting this, but Christian decided to go out for the cross country team. In his first meet he was the first finisher for his school. He had found his niche and the change in his smile and expression was amazing. He just wanted to find something that he was good at and he did.
New episodes Thurs at 10pm Jan 6
Finally MTV is showing more Made episodes. Today I saw episode 505 about a 4' 10" girl who wanted to be noticed. Not bad but since I already missed the first 25 minutes I really wasn't hooked in.
MTV switched nights from Wednesday to Thursday and of course did not advertise that the show was back on. Well at least there is something to watch on Thursdays.
