    I thought this show would be pretty good when I first layed eyes on it but now I'm starting to think this show as a load of sh*t. I mean seriously their only children going to high school just because their prodigies? Is that the best you came up with Disney at least try to be reasonable here, what about the work that is WAY above their grade (apart from Olive's).

    Chyna - since when did this become a musical? Almost every episode singing singing SINGING!! why does Fletcher love her if I was him I would give up already (took him long enough but thankfully he did) and to make matters worse its all auto tuned but she is a really nice character still a bit annoying

    Fletcher - how they take advantage of him I feel so sorry for him he deserves China and right when he falls in love for Olive (a pretty stupid decision) they were closing the show. I really hate how they make fun of him especially Olive's lame jokes about him there not funny just MEAN!!

    Olive - She's just annoying someone please shut her up with her 'interesting more like boring factoids and to make matters worse round about in season 3 her ego starts to grow more with that annoying catch phrase "ZAZOW!"

    Paisley - why make her dumb why make her a tool of that sh*tty Lexi Reed? She's so nice yet they make her so dumb and a funny thing, almost every episode contains a dumb blonde it's just an insult to blonde's!! I like the episode when the children pick her as the princess over Lexi. Dan signer take a hint.

    Lexi - I hate her but like the real her a lot she has an ego more bigger than her stupidness which makes that ALOT she makes everyone feels bad about themselves and she is kind of pretty but she isn't a goddess and I have seen woman prettier than her, like for example Paisley. when I heard she was going to MR Grundy's school I felt sick to my throat. Lexi is an INSULT!

    Madam goo goo and the den mother- another channel where they couldn't be bothered to fit in one extra so they just duplicated the actress instead.

    Cameron - A character I CAN stand why make fun of him. make fun of the mean people who actually deserve it Olive, Lexi his acting isn't great but he seems like a nice guy just like fletcher what did they do to be teased.

    mother and father - they are funny and serve consistent morals but the one thing that im concerned about is how they bad mouth Cameron which shows they couldn't care less about him over Chyna are you trying to teach children that parents can have favourites?

    Mr Grundy - im just glad that the Americans didn't illustrate the British with an over acting posh attitude but still the accent is a bit exaggerating.

    The scenes are FAKE!! and the acting is disappointing hopefully Disney's shows get less or even better no dumb people in their episodes.moreless
  • 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
