- Bunheads (ABC Family): Series Premiere. A Las Vegas showgirl impulsively marries a guy and moves with him to the small town on the California coast where he lives. Plays twice. I very much enjoyed this show and if you liked Gilmore Girls, I think you will enjoy it too. Yes, it does revolve around ballet and has a funny name, but it really is quite engaging. The dialogue draws you in from the very beginning and the show just breezes by. I’m looking forward to seeing more of this one going forward. Definitely will be interested to hear your thoughts on the show.
