hell cats, alyson michalka, hellcats, cw, nikita cw. Hellcats' with Aly Michalka: Review Revue. The show is about pre-law student named Marti Perkins (played by Aly Michalka of the criminally under-appreciated movie “Bandslam”) who joins her university’s cheer squad in order to win a scholarship. The head of the squad, named the Hellcats, is played by Ashley Tisdale (of the not-at-all overlooked franchise “High School Musical).
So far, most critics say that the show isn’t as smart or as much fun as “Glee”–but that there’s a chance the program could turn into something worthwhile.
