Ned's Declassified Among Nick's Best- A must for kids grades 4-6
There was no Nickelodeon when I was a kid. So, my perspective is as an adult who started watching Nick after my kids were born. In terms of Nickelodeon over the last 10 years, Ned's Declassified is as good a show as Nick ever aired. As my kids approach middle school now, I find the show very helpful in removing some of the apprehension they have as well as providing some useful tips regarding going to school and growing up in general.
In that way Ned's is nearly one of a kind, as it is both an informational show as well as a very funny comedy.
The show revolves around three friends: Ned, Jennifer Mozely (Moze), and Simon Cook (Cookie) as they make their way through 7th and 8th grade. The show has three seasons, which is fitting, one season for each year of middle school, though unfortunate because the show gets better as it goes, with Season 3 being clearly the best season.
The show is helped by each episode being in two 15 minute halves, which helps the show move quickly. Each half deals with a different middle school dilemma or issue with tips on how to handle them. For each half, all three of the main characters are typically given their own plot thread, which frequently intersect.
The main characters are also helped out by some hilarious secondary characters, including Gordy, the lazy janitor, Vice Principal Crubbs, Missy, the mean popular girl, Evelyn, the crazy smart girl, Seth, the popular but brain dead jock, and Lisa and Suzie, who are Simon and Ned's romantic interests throughout most the series.
All around fantastic series that I highly recommend for kids in the grades preceding middle school or just starting in middle school.moreless
Makes Middle school look less cruel
Although it`s kinda hard to see any direct morals or lessons, the show is actually pretty useful and good from when Nick was makeing shows that were actually funny. The cast feels right for the roles and the episodes all feel well written. The show seems to be an advice show kids can really relate to.
I loved it!
I can never get tired of this show. It's a show about three kids, which surprised me there wasn't a 'stupid' friend, they were all equally smart, and Missie (please excuse if I'm wrong), the girl who cares about fashion, really isn't that annoying and stuck-up. I'm glad at the plot of this show, and the acting is fair, but not that bad. Ah, those days when TV was actually bearable.
EDIT: As I said before, Moze was the 'sporty' one, but she had multiple interests and didn't devote all her time to that. Cookie was the more smart and technological one, but liked other things too, like hanging out with his friends and of course, digging through the tunnels of the school. Ned wasn't the stupid one, he was equally smart and had many interests.
I also want to say Cookie was rich, but he didn't rub it in anyone's face or anything.
And to all you folks saying 'the situations in this school never happen' it's not SUPPOSED to happen. The main tip is said at the end, but they have to make it funny for the kids. Would you watch a tutorial about 'how to survive school' with only one person, or a show with a whole set of characters that actually have diversity?moreless
Very Hilarious Show
Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide is a show that I can never get tired of. Almost all of the tips can be used in real life (college student here), except for the obviously bad tips, which are few. The first season was a little dull in the beginning, but the goofiness evolved into just plain hilarious comedy. The best part about the show is that, despite the silliness, it had a decent plot and some episodes had good morals. I still watch it to this day. Good show! Very funny.moreless
BEST SHOW EVER
i kind of think that since this show had three seasons they should have started when they were in 6th grade cause in the 1st season that's how they looked to me. anyways, this show is absolutely corny, weird, and definitely out of the ordinary. i don't laugh a whole lot in this show, but i definitely think to myself "the hell are they doing?" and i love shows like that. in reality, if Polk Middle School ever existed, i would certainly love to go to that school. it's so interesting and weird, and the thing i love the most is that the kids you see in the hallway, they don't even notice all the goofy weird things they do. and i love how Gordy never catches the weasel. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHOW!!!moreless
