Mmmm-hmmm, it’s on. Again. Eight years after the silly street-dance-competition soap opera You Got Served (and its glorious South Park parody), hip-hop entrepreneur and director Christopher B. Stokes returns with even tinier kids stomping to heavy beats, each wearing a cartoon scowl. Served star Marques Houston returns too, this time as a slick businessman named Sean who’s got more than a bit of Sean Combs to him.

The editing in Battlefield America is super-speedy: Each shot lasts about three seconds, and then it’s off. C
