  • Annoying Not-to-mention Talentless.

    How is this the modern Disney sitcom with the highest ranking? I hate them all but this is the absolute worst. Now I know what you're going to say. "It's inspirational to kids! So shut up!" Quite frankly I agree. It is a good message to all kids out their to find out their special talents and bring them to the forefront as a gift. BUT, it doesn't help with the lack-luster comedy that keeps droning ON AND ON. They almost always take a break for the laugh track and have pauses between the joke and the previous line which leads them to get the timing wrong. Every. Single. Time. Not to mention the jokes weren't even funny to begin with. Every character is a god damn ASSHOLE. That's except for Chyna who seems to be the only sane person in this madness of a show. Not to mention she's the only one who can decently act. Same with the principal. Other than that, every other character has a HORRIBLE actor/actress. They seem to not get the difference between acting and creating random inflections to their voice because they can. The story . Nothing I haven't seen in many other shows. Same with the plots. Now, I know something else you might be thinking. "But it's a kids show! Stop complaining and just don't watch it if you don't like it!" and to that I say, Um, do you not get the point of this website? is strictly for reviewing different TV shows and giving them a ranking along with a review of whether you like it or not. If I don't like it, it's not like I'm keeping you from watching what you want to watch. Just go to Disney Channel and enjoy yourself if you want to. Sadly, I think of this show as utter garbage with terrible comedy, acting and effects. Oh yeah, that reminds me, this show, along with EVERY OTHER MODERN DISNEY SITCOM, has AWFUL green screen effects. It's blatant to tell whether or not they're using them. When the camera seems to be stuck in one simple position, often times with other characters frozen, then you know they're using it. Learn to film or cut it out of the script! What's my final verdict? Well, on a scale of Unbearable to Amazing, this show gets one notch above "Unbearable". It's nowhere near as bad as something like Breadwinners or Problem Solverz, but that doesn't excuse it. It's not as boring as Good Luck Charlie or Liv and Maddie, but it's DEFINITELY more aggravating than all of them put together. This has been the Regular Reviewer. Thank you for reading.

    Final Score: 1/10 (Slightly Above Unbearable)moreless

  • "The China Show"

    This show wouldn't be as awful as it is if it didn't have China; she is the single worst part of the show (yes, worse than all of the other characters, and since they are all at least a little annoying, that is really saying something).

    I don't know what she did to convince the Disney executives to give her her own show (it certainly comes off as though it's her show and everybody else is just supporting cast), but she certainly doesn't deserve it. Her singing is not good and her acting is even worse. Everything that Chyna does is overdone, hokey, and contrived. She constantly hams it up and chews the scenery.

    It's too bad that they didn't cast Vanessa Morgan in the role instead of just in a bit part. In fact, if they had, it would have been a little more believable because instead of being about a bunch of little kids being several grades higher, it would have been about some high-school students only a couple of grades ahead (like in real life).

  • A good example of a bad Disney show

    This show can be good sometimes, and others it's just unbearably bad. The acting is weak, the jokes are dumb, running gags are way overused, and it's totally implausible.

    UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 2 (originally posted last year on July 16): Nick has an upcoming show called Breadwinners that airs in 20 days. Today I found the pilot on YouTube and showed it to my family. EVERYONE HATED IT! They all said it was the worst thing they'd seen in their lives. And that includes The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure (2012), Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale (2006), and Rabbids Invasion. So I won't be surprised when Breadwinners gets a 1.9 just like Marvin Marvin here at and Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale at IMDb. My Aunt said I should rate it as low as possible just to get the score down. Unfortunately, the lowest one can rate is 1, unless you are a prolific author. I have been working on that for months (6 plus months), so I can rate stuff like Marvin Marvin, Fred: The Show, and The Oogieloves a 0.0. Breadwinners is next on my "to rate 0.0 once I can" list.

    UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 18: Breadwinners premiered yesterday. I have reviewed it. It's bad but not as bad as Sanjay and Craig.moreless
  • Please kill me.

    No. Just no. Wow, Disney sure has gone downright BAD since all the good shows have been taken off! . Farm is a terrible show for children to watch. The plot is ridiculous, the characters are annoying, the humor, oh God help us, the humor, is extremely stupid, and kids can not relate to this; IT IS WAY TOO UNREALISTIC. Let me start off with the plot.

    PLOT: Okay, when I first saw the trailer of a young-looking girl in high-school, I knew that something was wrong. That's when I heard the foolish plot: A girl goes to high school for her talent. What the flip? Does that make ANY sense? No! What if a girl, probably in kindergarten, went to high-school just because of her dance skills? Education is not measured on talents, it's determined by freaking INTELLIGENCE. So, answer this, can Chyna skip three grades because of musical skills, and cut out important factors that high-schoolers learned and she didn't? They're way behind. No, I just can't handle this. Moving on . . .

    CHARACTERS: Another bad element of the show! Great! Irritating characters that make me want to rip my hair out. Let's start with the average Chyna. Haha, nope. Apparently, she isn't average, she is a musical genius who is beautiful and talented and smart and unique and so freaking majest - SHUTUP. We know that your little main character is so special! Don't believe me when I say that they treat Chyna better than others? In one episode (when Skidmore was going to shut down the ANT Farm), Chyna was wearing a purple dress with her hair curled while the others were wearing clothes from the gas station. Oh my Lord, my little princess is going to stand out! Not today, Dan, just stop. And that's not the only reason I hate Chyna. It's because she can't actually stop singing for two seconds without autotune, or sounding bad (in my opinion, I'm sorry). Look, we get that you're a goddess at singing and instruments, but can you please shut up for ten seconds? Oh no, you can't? Okay, well then. Let's skip over to Olive, one of the most annoying blondes in the history, although she actually has a reason for attending high-school. Even though she has a powerful mind of storing multiple memories, she can sometimes be stupid. Olive also brags too much, and it ticks me off every single time she tries too hard to make a joke. Then, there's Fletcher, the dumbest artist. Is it that funny to have tons of oaves in the show? Why does he even like Chyna? For the first few seconds of the show, he stalks her and loves her and wants to sleep with her. STOP IT. And then, there's the rest of the characters, who are DUMB, and STUPID, and COMPLETE MORONS.

    Humor (at least that's what I think they call it): No. Stop trying, Disney. It's not even funny. Copy a joke from a book or something, I don't care, just for God's sake, please stop!

    Thanks for taking your time to read this. Please just cancel the show, you're wasting money here.moreless
