Score to Settle - July 21
Well, I was sort of right.
This is the last episode of the show, and we will be
cutting it down from 6 people to the final two. What I
didn't know was that NBC was going to pull what they did
with "Lost" and just eliminate the second to last
episode. So for all of you who don't have ESP and can't
use osmosis to say what happened in the last episode
(that you're not going to see)?
Well, the screen play had the team split into 2 - again.
Jared's ego and hot and cold performances don't doom
him, but his relationship with Melisande is doomed as
she gets eliminated. John's fears get to him as he is
the male casualty of the show. We are down to Jeanne Vs.
Corinne for the lady's role and Sean Vs. Jared for the
men's role. Melisande convinces her love to Jared as she
walks out. AwwwwBarf.
My prediction is that the producers have said since day
1 that Sean and Corinne are the people who they see as
the best in those roles. I don't see any reason for them
to change their mind now.
The final scene? 'Score To Settle'. It will take
teamwork for the agents to get out alive - and maybe
teamwork for Jared to win the role. No one who is left
likes Jared - and unfortunately for the women, one of
them has to be stuck with Jared, who is honored to be
one of the people left standing.
This challenge is different. There is an obstacle course
that has to be done. Whoever gets it done the quickest
gets a power lunch with Louis Morneau the director.
Corinne sets the bar at 29 seconds. Jeanne hits it a 39
seconds, and she admits that she is burnt out. That's
not a good attitude to have in the finals. Sean sneaks
it in 28 seconds, and Jared is amazed at what Sean can
do. Jared's time? 26 seconds. He gets the Power Lunch.
and Sean says that he can take notes from it. Jared: "I
don't like to take second. Ever." Foreshadowing?
Louis and Alan Schechter talk to the guys about the
movie - and they tell him that it's about a smooth
operator who plays in the casino. Louis and Alan say
that they are impressed with him - but they ask him what
he will do if he wins it. His response is that he works
hard for everything, adding jokingly that he will be a
jerk on the set if he wins. Well, most of the people
left think he's a jerk now, so what's the difference?
After dinner, Jared plays ping pong - and Sean nails him
with a football in the family jewels. "There's a
difference between getting kicked in the nuts and being
nailed in the groin." Someone will get nailed in the
groin professionally as Howard takes all of them and
plays mix and match. Corinne is convinced that she and
Sean are the best group - but they won't know who gets
the casting call because Howard says that he hasn't
figured it out. He'll let Tina decide who gets the card.
Howard may want to get a mediator, as the women blow up
at each other in the car. What about? The fact that they
both want Sean - and neither of them wants Jared. Ouch.
Jared finally realizes that no one wants to work with
him, and he is hurt. Jared's Dogma just got run over by
everyone else's karma.
Back at the mansion, Tina has the Casting Card - and
that card goes to... Corinne, because she has confronted
and moved with her fears. She thanks G-d, and we all
know that she wants - and gets - Sean. Jeanne, who
despises Jared, gets stuck with him. To add to it, they
both want the same role. Jared gives Jeanne the part,
and Jeanne is already dreading working with Jared - so
much that she decides to take choreography lessons from
Sean instead. Chemistry? What chemistry?
The four of them get all puffed up and have a
mini-interview with Access Hollywood. Jeanne says that
this may be small taste of what happens in the future.
Based on the ratings so far, that doesn't seem too
Jared decides to play the peacemaker and makes a cake
for Sean's birthday. Jared, who is convinced that he is
friends with Sean, makes a cake with pink icing and a
Barbie doll on top. Sean sees it and says that he's
touched. Sean also gets a card signed by many of the
cast that was there - including some booted players. He
says that he's grateful and hugs are exchanged.
Enough with the smooshy stuff, it's time for the final
scene. Everything comes together from wire scenes to
acting to stunt lessons. The key is style and expressing
everything through emotions. Corinne has to remind Sean
that you have to work as a team, and she tells him to
slow down. Sean gets a touch of arrogance and says that
he will not be directed around by a fellow contestant.
Neither of them was happy about the scene. Sean says
that it was weak, while Corinne reminds him that she's
short and that he's not paying attention to them as a
team. Tensions explode as tempers flare and Sean curses
Corinne out. Sean storms off and Corinne was wondering
if maybe that Jared wasn't the better choice.
Speaking of Jared, he is intently studying the scene.
Jeanne is... nowhere to be found and is in her trailer.
She says that she couldn't see what they were doing - so
Jared will have to go through everything with her. This
immediately gets Jared very nervous, as he says "Uh-oh."
It gets worse for Jeanne, who can't manage any of the
wire stunts. She says that she hopes that people could
see that she could do it if required, but the fact that
she was not prepared for this at all could be a very
fatal move for her.
Jared and Jeanne struggle through their scene. The
restriction of movement in terms of wearing leather was
tighter than what Jared originally thought. "The
movement is different when you are wearing cow." They
get through it - but not before at least 10 tries and
they still don't get Jeanne's stunts correctly.
Sean realizes that the whole ball of was is at stake -
so he has to make up with Corinne. He does and they give
a stress-releasing hug. Sean says that they are about to
embark a journey that's going to be big.
NetZero Recap - They don't like Corinne and Sean's
chemistry, while they don't think Sean has a good
emotional range. They like Jared's style and they like
Corinne's kick boxing, while they don't like Jeanne's
style. They want an extra week of shooting - but we
already did that once this series and I don't think NBC
needs to be any more masochistic then they already are.
Sean thinks that he's learned a lot and that he's had a
lot of fun. Corinne thinks that she'll miss everybody
(even Jared?), Jeanne thinks that she's had ups and
downs, and she'd love to win this to see what she is
capable of, while Jared says that the experience has
changed the way that he has looked at everything.
Each of the people get to be called into a mini-theater
as they sit down in the front row. Tina shows up and
tells them and starts it up by telling them that they
will see their latest screen test on the silver screen.
She then invites all of the 20 finalists back to see it.
House wants to see Corinne win, while Melisande, of
course, wants to see Jared win - just simply because if
he doesn't, he'll be devastated.
They saw the full scenes, and everyone was impressed.
Mae says that there was a reason why they are up there -
any one of them can win it and they should have four
seats up there, not two. Mark said that he would like
Corinne and Sean while House says that he'd give them
all $7.00 before he left. Heh.
Louis, Victoria and Alan are all invited, and they hope
that they could work with them someday. Victoria tells
them all to rock on, while Alan says that it was a tough
Enough with the jabber, here are your winners. The first
script goes to... Corinne! The second script goes to...
Sean! Jared is a good sport and hugs Sean and Melisande
better be hiding all of the sharp objects. Corinne is
thrilled, and it hasn't hit her yet. Jared says that he
has to take rejection well, and that he learned a lot.
Sean can't believe that he won it and he feels like the
luckiest guy in the world. He can't wait to rock the
movie - a movie that we'll be seeing in 7 days. Fade to
black. End of series.
My take? Well, the show itself wasn't that bad. The
first 'pre-audition' episode, though was dreadful, and
it gave me second thoughts about wanting to cover this
series. It gave the audience second thoughts too, as
they all ran away from this in droves and didn't even
give this a second chance. That's too bad, since the
show itself wasn't that horrible.
The show, however, did suffer from the anti-contestant
disease. What is that? The show never went through the
qualities of the good stuff that they were doing -
instead, they harped on why people were eliminated or
why they weren't good enough. Part of getting an
audience is to find good qualities in people and having
a rooting interest in the show, but quite frankly, there
wasn't any in terms of talent. That's too bad, because I
am sure they are all very talented, but you didn't feel
it in the show.
To top it all, the show, for the most part, was the
Jared show, and he doesn't win it. Sean does, but we
don't really know that much about him, and there's no
reason why we'd be attached to him to actually see the
movie. Corinne has a nice storyline to her, and she is
very charismatic, but you need 2 people to carry the
show, not one. For that, the show gets a C-, and the
Next Action Star, in this one, will most likely be the
But we're not done with this one. I get to come back
next week with a movie review as we get to see if these
stars are actually worth the film they are being printed
