Make It Or Break It - (S02E17)

Sport . Drama

Kaylie finally returns to training at The Rock, but the public is under the impression that her time away from the gym was from an ACL injury, not rehab for anorexia. Soon after, Sasha announces that Kelly Parker is going to replace Emily on the World team, and that Kaylie will be replaced, as well, since she has not had enough time to train.

    The good part is that the drama should be fun to watch for us. And for the guy at Pizza Shack, too.

  • Tanner Stransky

    Make It is silly, melodramatic fun--and will score big-time with viewers from the fanatical Shawn Johnson set.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    No doubt there will be many lessons about the importance of pulling together and being true to oneself, etc., but Make It or Break It seems prepared to take on not only the obvious Life Lessons but also the crucial undercurrents that move so many lives well into adulthood. And that, as much as the graceful wonder of gymnastics, will make it worth watching.

  • Brian Lowry

    Not everything works--starting with the split-screen gymnastics footage--but there are enough juicy bits here to forge a solid foundation with plenty of plot tendrils.

  • Ellen Gray

    There's very little that's unexpected in Make It, including the obvious editing of the gymnastics performances. But Emily's a tough character who's easy to root for.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Laura Bennett

    Despite its fancy flips and dizzy floor routines, Make It is unconvincing as a portal into this subculture and numbingly hollow as a commentary on teenage life.
