Nah, nothing essential (in his #2 review).
I always liked Bledel, too, found her very natural, and just absolutely perfect with Graham. But I do think she improved from the earliest episodes, found the rhythm as it went along... (this isn't harsh criticism - I think most of the Buffy kids got a lot better further in, too).
Aside: Ray Romano is doing a Parenthood arc with Graham. Cool.
Yeah, it's too soon to issue an absolute judgment on Bunheads because we're still in set-up mode - this isn't 'the show' yet, that we're seeing. But... I don't know. I DO feel pretty safe in saying 'I love it' already. Bishop's breakdown... Foster (not everybody could convincingly play 'Lorelai' - but... she's pretty perfect -- never having seen her any of her Broadway work, she's Coco-from-Flight of the Conchords to me), that very funny first scene with Rico at the bar... there's a tremendous comfort in hearing AS-P dialogue again. And hey, nothing wrong with a little ballet...
(The Return of Jezebel James didn't work - though I love Parker Posey AND Lauren Ambrose - it was the studio audience/laugh track thing... wrong venue).
