I wish the late, lamented gymnastics soap Make It Or Break It had survived into the Olympics, because it would have been so awesome to see them parlay the actual drama (Jordyn loses out on the all-arounds! Gabby wins gold but flops in the event finals! Aly Raisman comes out of nowhere! McKayla did the single best vault I have ever seen, at team finals, and then sat down when it was her turn to go for the medal! Then she was not impressed!) into an eight-episode fictional arc. I’m sure Cassie Scerbo here is probably plenty happy not to be wearing a leotard every day, nor have to stand on a balance beam and act like it isn’t hot, holy terror.

But she might want to be careful about using her clothes to agitate for a Batgirl series. Capes can be so cumbersome, and itchy masks can be murder on a girl’s pores.
