SUMMARY: Leslie and Tina of dance troupe Soft Motionz are
worried about their troupemate, Jill, who is dating the douchey
Thad, the most sexist, mansplainy dick imaginable. They enter
the troupe into a dance-off competition at the local mall in
Tampa, the prize for which is the chance to audition for a
talent agent in Atlanta. If they win, they get to live their
dreams - and Thad will have to stay behind in Tampa. They win
the contest handily, but it turns out they don't have the money
for the trip to Atlanta... and Thad does. They're stuck with him

EPISODE TWO (4/1/17)
SUMMARY: On the way to the competition, Thad insists on
playing Gordon Lightfoot's "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald." The
song goes on forever, and Leslie and Tina can't stand it... at
first. By the time the epic song concludes, however, they admit
they like it now. And Thad, smirking, announces that via tips he
got from both "The Game" and "The Secret," he has MADE them like
Gordon Lightfoot, and he is now "inhabiting" them. As they
approach the La Quinta Inn, the ladies worry that they are
falling under Thad's douchey spell...
EPISODE THREE (4/8/17)
SUMMARY: Soft Motionz competes at the Quarterfinals
against a slick team called Poppin' & Lockin' - and Jill can't
stop crying throughout their act because Thad is missing. Blake,
blandly handsome lead singer of semifinalist white-bread boy
band tries to cheer Jill up and make her forget about Thad, but
can't make any headway. Three Makes W3 It seems like they're
sure to lose, but thanks to the machinations of 9-time winner Rollerskate Gary, Poppin' & Lockin' are disqualified due to
testing positive for drugs. Blakes falling for
Jill, but his bandmates Bruce and Zeek tell him to forget those romantical
thoughts... Soft Motionz is their competition now.
EPISODE FOUR (4/15/17)
SUMMARY: Leslie sits up in horror after somehow having
been talked by Thad into a threesome with him and Jill. She also
thinks they should be rehearsing, like their competitors are in
the adjoining hotel rooms, making quite the ruckus and keeping
everyone awake. Jill and Blake run into each other in the hall
when they go to get ice, and Blake is disappointed to learn
that Jill has a boyfriend. Meanwhile, Linda, secretary to
contest judge Phil, confronts him: she knows the contest is a
scam. After all, what connections to Hollywood does anybody have
in Tampa, Florida? However, Phil thinks that Three Makes W3 are
the only competitors in the contest with any talent; he decides
to rig the contest so they win, and then make millions as the
band's manager. Linda threatens to expose him, so Phil offers to
marry her and have her be his beard; Linda agrees to be his "sad
EPISODE FIVE (4/22/17)
SUMMARY: Tina sits up in horror after having a threesome
with Rollerskate Gary and Gary Busey. Apparently, she has a
thing for Garys. Stumbling out of the room, she runs into a
member of Three Makes W3, and they bond over how they seem to be
underwritten characters in somebody else's story. But it turns
out they know each other's names (he's Zeke), and there may be a
spark of potential romance. Meanwhile, Jill is crying because
she's finally broken up with Thad... except she thought breaking
up with Thad would upset Leslie and Tina, so she got back
together with him, problem solved. Also, he's their manager now.
ARRRRRGH! Seeking someone to talk to, Jill confides in Blake,
who is really really nice 'cause he's Canadian. She tells him
her boyfriend makes her so sad sometimes, but it's good to have
someone she can talk to - a nice guy who will be her friend.
Blake, who is attracted to Jill, sadly absorbs the word
"friend." And Lyle, after embarrassing himself by needlessly
confessing that he also had an affair with Thad, becomes a
turncoat and joins competitors "Poppin' & Lockin'."

Thad with his newly-awful ways... but Thad outfoxes him with
feigned tears and sincerity that pull Jill back to his side. As
the talent show reaches its final round, the finalists are Soft
Motionz, Three Makes W3 and Poppin' and Lockin'...
