I just finished watching the first two episodes of Canadian soap import MVP on SOAPnet and I am crazy impressed! After seeing previews of the show, I was intrigued yet a part of me was afraid MVP-jam packed with hopelessly-beautiful babe-izons and buffed studs in white boxer briefs who likely spent more time at the gym than at Summer Shakespeare workshops-might have proven to be more Models, Inc. than Melrose Place, but I am glad to say the land that gave us Degrassi and Maple Syrup doesn't disappoint. MVP is icy hot!
From Damon, the tormented, David Beckham-esque male slut, to she-devil Daddy's girl Molly, to fresh-from-the-farm rookie Trevor (he of the aforementioned boxer briefs), MVP has plenty of interesting characters and juicy plotlines.
At the center of the saga is a classic Cinderella storyline featuring reformed bad guy-turned-team captain Gabe and virginal child care worker Connie. The pair gets off to a promising start before Gabe gets roped into a sex scandal involving Trevor. I won't ruin the surprise since SOAPnet plans to air all three eppys of it's new gem next Friday for the Fourth of July, but I will say I hope Gabe has his face insured! Check out MVP: He Shoots, She Scores Thurs. at 11 pm. ET.
