Ruby & the Rockits on ABC Family

Tonight is the first episode of Ruby & the Rockits from ABC Family. The show premieres at 8:30pm directly after the enjoyable 10 Things I Hate About You. In the new series, Ruby, portrayed by Alexa Vega, tracks down her father David, portrayed by music legend David Cassidy, who is an irresponsible ex-pop star who was big int he 80s.  David must seek help from his brother and former bandmate Patrick (Cassidy of course) who is a suburban dad and family man.  As it turns out, Ruby takes after her father and has a voice that could sell records… I think we can all guess what happens next.

If Ruby & the Rockits isn’t your cup of tea, than you have other options tonight…

How in the world is REPO! The Genetic Opera not hitting theaters midnight on Halloween? Darren Lynn Bousman’s horror musical would be the perfect way to end All Hallows Eve. Instead, we’ll have to wait until November 7th, when the film gets a limited release in Los Angeles. It is unknown if and when the film will open wide.

Lionsgate’s official description of the film; “In the not so distant future, an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants… for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about her family’s mysterious history. After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo’s Genetic Opera, she won’t turn back until she finds what she’s looking for.”
