The quality of kids shows these days are not as high as they used to be. The shows just dont seem to have the quality or ambition but ANT farm really tries to be funny. As I watched the show I could see the writers actually tried to put effort into this show. It felt funny at a lot of moments and I actually felt like the characters clicked in development, though the younger kids at a high school feels wrong, as kids should be portrayed for thier original intelligance level. Still, this shows better than what you see on Nickelodeon.
Most of the Disney shows that my daughter likes are actually tolerable to watch. We actually enjoy watching Good Luck Charlie and Dog with a Blog as a family, but Ant Farm is just plain annoying. The characters are terrible, they portray the parents and teachers as idiots, and the story lines are just plain dumb! There are so few good programs on that you can watch with your kids, Come on Disney Channel, step up to the plate!!! I am keeping my fingers crossed that Girl Meets World is going to be cute and fun to since I grew up on the original Boy Meets World! :)
This show had such potential, but every episode just seems like it has more misses than hits. It's not even that the jokes aren't funny. There are some that have the potential to be hilarious, but the execution is absolutely putrid. It's so poor that it completely deflates the enjoyment of the show. Sometimes I feel like they try too hard to squeeze in jokes and make them funny and in the end they turn out to be dreadful.
The characters seem OK, but they are portrayed horribly. Chyna, especially, has really worn thin on me. She's either trying to make herself sound funny or loud, and rarely does it work. They made her father into a completely incompetent moron. Olive shouts sometimes when she says her lines and I find it completely unnecessary. Plus her entire persona on being completely book-smart-obssessed is quite pathetic. It's turned her into a completely unlikable character. Fletcher I could care less for. Sometimes I can't seem to tell whether his character is the result of terrible acting or terrible writing. They turned Angus into a fat slob who's obsessed with eating or technology. While his quirks aren't a bad thing, they get old fairly quickly. Lexi's the worst of them all, showing either a lust to destroy Chyna or put down Paisley, but once again, it's the show trying too hard to mold her character. Ironically, my two favorite characters are Cameron, who doesn't get much face time to begin with, and Paisley, and Paisley's supposed to be the dumb one, right? Gibson I started out liking but now I'm just indifferent about.
Overall, . Farm is a show that had the potential for stardom and has instead fallen hard on its face. It has had its great moments and fun episodes that I have truly enjoyed, but as it's progressed the characters have become less and less tolerable and the writing has become more and more terrible. It's hard to tell what's worse: the acting or the writing, but both have dragged this show down. Season 1 was really good, season 2 was OK, but season 3 has been an absolute train wreck.
In all my honesty, I can no longer tolerate this 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 grades ahead (like in real life).
Gibbson and Cameron are dumber than Cat on Victorious or Dez from Austin and Ally. Lexi is such a bitchy, mean and unlikable character. Fletch deserves China. Olive will just put you to sleep. So here's what you should do China. Trick Gibbson into drinking poison and killing him. Take your fathers gun and shoot Cameron, your father and MANY others will be happy. Say to Lexi point this thing up to your head which is a pistol to do a movie then press this trigger and say to her it's empty I want to get a video for school. Then have her do it and really kill herself. Make Fletcher kiss Olive making her shoot herself. Then go on a date with Fletcher, PLEASE DO IT ALL, PLEEAAASE.
The plot of this show makes absolutely no sense. It's about a bunch of middle schoolers who go to high school and take high school classes because of one talent they have (not necessarily academic). It's one thing if they're academically gifted, but why are the artistically talented, athletically talented and musically talented taking high school classes when they're not necessarily smart? Anyway the episodes basically just revolve around these annoying kids and how they try to "survive" high school at 12 years old:
Chyna: She basically goes around flaunting her musical gift to everyone. She sings too, which is stupid since she doesn't have a very good voice. She's not as stuck-up as some of the other kids, but she can still be an annoying show-off.
Olive: Oh god. My least favorite character by far. She's this human encyclopedia who just goes around correcting people's errors and being a smart ass. She acts like she thinks she's the smartest girl on the planet or something.
Fletcher: Lovestruck wimp. Not really much else to say about him.
Angus: Obese computer geek who has a crush on Olive for some strange reason.
Paisley: Stereotypical blonde bimbo. They've totally exaggerated her stupidity. Nobody in reality is actually as dumb as this girl is.
Lexi: Stereotypical queen bee cheerleader who is mean to everyone and goes around talking about how pretty she is.
Cameron: I actually don't mind him that much. He has some funny lines and isn't unlikeable like everyone else.
This is basically just another stupid Disney Channel show. I wouldn't recommend it.
All of a sudden, they made Fletcher stupider and Chyna more stuck-up, along with Olive who thinks she's smarter than everyone. I miss Cameron and his witty comments, along with the Dad. Paisley, another dumb blonde. I know some blondes who are actually really smart and don't act like that, and I wish the dumb blonde thing would just end already. Lexi is also stuck-up, and why is she still in the farm and Cameron isn't? Sure, she's a math genius, but they only show Chyna and their cheesy little jokes and stunts. When it first started, it honestly wasn't that bad, I would probably give it seven, but as it changed, it now has a 3.5. Nice one, Disney.
I gave it a 1 because it's unrelatable, it has annoying characters, and you don't learn anything from it. The reason it's unrelatable is because it's about kids with advanced natural talents who go to high school, and lets admit it, how many kids go to high school and take high school subjects just because they have an advance natural talent?
Fletcher: He was pretty likable in the beginning of the show, but after that, it went down hill. They made him dumber, and I remember him being pretty smart. He wasn't as smart as Olive, but he was average. I'm not sure why he's not taking an art class and is forced to take those high school subjects if he's only 12. Overall, I think he's a pretty good actor.
Olive:She's the most annoying of them all. She walks around like she's the smartest person alive. Also, I think she's supposed to be a copy of Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. She insults all of her friends for being less intelligent than she is (mostly Fletcher), and still they're friends with her. If it was like that in real life, she wouldn't have any friends.
Chyna: She's pretty annoying too. She shows off her musical talents a lot, which I would too if I could play that many instruments, but she takes it to a whole new level. She sings in almost every single episode. She doesn't even have a good voice. You can immediately tell that it's been fixed. It's also very annoying, and intolerable. She thinks she's the best in everything she does.
Paisley: Why would they have a dumb blonde on the show? It's already been done many times before, and no one in reality is that stupid. Everybody makes fun of her, and she doesn't seem to mind.
Cameron: Eh, he's okay. He seems to be the only one I can tolerate.
Lexi: She's the stereotypical cheerleader who's mean to everybody and is very conceited. I actually kind of like her, though. She has a very pretty voice, and I think she should be the musical prodigy of the show. She should be doing something other than this show.
UPDATE: I lowered my score big time. I was hoping the third season would be better but it was even shittier. They're at a new school that's run by an obese billionare. Everyone tries to fucking hard to be funny. And they play that dumb laugh track after every sentence. Chyna is even more annoying than she usually trying to be funny. So is Olive. And that episode with Chris Rock on it was terrible. He only had like five mins of camera time and didn't say one funny thing. Chris Rock is amazing, which is why I don't see why he's wasting his time on this crap. I might as well stop watching this shitty show.
This shows alright, I guess. But sometimes I think, Why am I even watching this? Here's how I feel about the characters:
Chyna: Not really funny or a great actor. I liked her acting on Daddy's Little Girls. That's about it. And she sings wayyyy too much. Its a comedy, not a musical.
Olive: Annoying. Her "interesting factoid" crap annoys me in ways I can't describe. Overall she's okay, I guess.
Fletcher: Really wimpy kid who likes Chyna. I got a feeling the season will end with him dating Olive. Just a guess. He not that funny but better than Olive.
Lexi: Really annoying blonde who brags nonstop about how pretty she is. Shes pretty but not a frickin goddess. In my opinion, that airhead paisley looks better than her.
Cameron: Probably the only character I find decent on the show. He's funny at times and there really aren't many times where Id want to skin my eyes out watching him.
Gibson:I seriously hate this guy. That's the nice way of saying it. He's not funny at all and says stupid crap that even my 7 yr old cousin didn't find funny. He's my least favorite character. The show already has one idiot (Paisley) so why make another one?
The show isn't that funny but is enough to keep me entertained for 30 mins. The first two or three episodes were okay, but then it went downhill ever since. Im hoping Season 3 will be better because the season premiere was pretty decent. Just please don't put Gibson in the episodes as much as Season 1 and 2.
THIS FUCKING SHOW HAS REACHED AT A CRITICAL LEVEL OF THE FOLLOWING:
3. Gross-out gags
The show is about a School program called "Advanced Natural for short) that revolves around four kids who are considered "Smart" and "Advanced",when really they're all just a bunch of annoying, and I mean ANNOYING, butt-fuckers that go to High School (not surprised) and go on strange dumbass adventures.
Again, like many other fucking kid shows nowadays, all the characters are HORRIBLY ANNOYING. every time I see these characters on the Tube I want to just strangle them to death and fucking toss them into a pit of fire where I can sell their ashes as itching powder for the elderly, so when grandpa's balls get's itchy he can pour the ashes of all these characters into his granddaddy diaper where he can relieve his White as Snow Pubic Covered BALLS.
Yeah, they're that unlikable.
And the humor(oh god the humor) is fucking ASS. The jokes don't make ANY sense, and they mostly consist of stupid babbling and ***ed punchlines that will have you hating anything decent ever made for television. and at most times, the jokes don't make any sense. For example, there's a joke that reads,
China: Hey, how far are we from the ranch?
Brother: Approximately....2 inches!
^You read that shit, it's not even a joke is it? NO, IT'S FUCKING DETAIL. THAT'S NOT FUNNY? Here's another "joke" from this bucket of balls.
Blonde Shit: Thanks for fixing my computer, Hey, here's my picture I took on the 4th of July!
*Video of Fireworks*
^HOW IS THAT EVEN CALL FOR A FUCKING LAUGH TRACK? HOW IS IT FUNNY, WHAT'S THE FUCKING JOKE.
So boys and girls, if you desire to keep your sanity, SKIP THIS WORLD OF PUTRID ASS.
I just want to start off by saying that I hate how much the writers are killing Fletcher's character. They've turned him into an idiot for no reason, and I can't remember him being this stupid. In the most recent episode, Chyna was helping a boy take care of his animal farm when he went on a trip. One of her tasks was to feed a chicken she made friends with to an alligator. Thinking he was helping, Fletcher feeds a duck the boy had trained to communicate with him to the alligator. He didn't even know what a duck was called, saying it was a "water That really irritated me. To make matters worse, the alligator was unable to digest the duck and it came out unharmed. Either the alligator or the duck could have been killed in this scenario. As Olive put it, "he even screws up at screwing up!"
OK, now that the rant's over, I would like to praise this show. I like all characters except for Olive. She is an absolute bitch and a pest. It's amazing how I prefer the one girl we're supposed to hate (Lexi) over Olive. She's just irritating and a bully to Fletcher. The first season of this show was just great, as there were a lot of standout episodes. Season 2 wasn't as good as Season 1, but still pretty good. Season 3 is just like Season 2 to me. Not horrendous, but not as good as Season 1, where everything clicked. Also, Fletcher's slow character death is making me enjoy the show less. That would be my only request-to bring Season 1 Fletcher back (not as smart as Olive, but not as dumb as Paisley, just walking the fine line). Other than that, this show as I see it is the third-best on Disney Channel right now (trailing Austin & Ally and Good Luck Charlie). It's cooled down a bit from Season 1, but that's to be expected and it is still definitely worth your time.
Sometimes it's a bit meaningful, but about 90% of the time it's really stupid and awkward.
Chyna: means well but makes unintelligent decisions. I'm really happy she got into the school or whatever, but I think she's really annoying, sorry! She is supposed to be a music protg but its just obvious that she can't play all of those instruments and her delivery of prop use and her lines is not superb. Not really at all.
Olive: SO annoying, but sometimes provides a good companion. She really is very annoying, not because of her untamable recitations of facts, but because she constantly does stupid things. For example, in one episode, she loses her memory for five minutes when Chyna needs her speech for the principal and representing the ANT Farm, Olive says she knows it, loses her memory, then acts like she sill lost it and goes to kindergarten. For what purpose? Plus she's really boring and constantly does things that are stupid and boring, like when she made everyone go to detention, and tried to be the principal... However, there are times I really enjoy Olive's perspective on things:) like how she told Chyna not to lie to Cameron about having his own talent when he didn't win any school wide award.
Fletcher: The only person I enjoy. He's funny, adorable but also very mature; I really enjoy watching him. He has a great talent that I actually enjoy. Even when he asks out Chyna constantly, I always enjoy it! Haha:)
Cameron: I feel like Cameron NEEDS to mature and become funnier at least. He's so unintelligent it hurts. He always does annoying and stupid things like his psychic episode, oh my goodness every time he came on the screen it was terrible. Or also, when he punched Chyna's iPad with the speech on it, he says, "You have no evidence for that, none at all" when he raises his bandaged hand. He delivers the lines neither poorly or well and I just completely dislike his character so much.
Paisley: Really nice, although she acts unintelligent. I would LOVE to see her become more intelligent, though, because she's the nicest and sweetest person on the show. One of the episodes I loved seeing Paisley in was the one where both she AND Lexi were trying to get a job as a princess at a party and Paisley was so nice and sweet and wholesome.
Lexi: Super rude, the mean girl of the show, but I like her. It's weird, I will dislike her because she's mean but then I really like her acting; she, Fletcher and Paisley are the best actors and actresses on the show, along with Principal Skinmore -- who I've seen on several different pieces of filmography. I love her rendition on the tyrannical principal who is really devoted to her students in the most discrete manner. Love her!
Overall, the plot line is not good, but I think it will become MUCH better now that the go to the new school. The episodes at the school have been really great, although there have only been about two or three maybe. I hope I'm correct!
Farm is a very bad show!! What's the plot in that show?! Its just so unrelatable to life and just plain annoying! This show has no plot or a twist or anything that attracts people to watch it! Its so unpredictable and I can't even describe it in words! All I have to say is the old disney is gone forever. Everytime I see those characters on the tv screen I just wanna punch them so bad!!! THEY DESTROYED DISNEY CHANNEL! WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT'S SO RAVEN AND SUITE LIFE SERIES?! LIZZIE MCQUIRE? THOSE SHOWS HAD A SERIES OF PLOTS AND SOME REAL TALENTED ACTORS. I'm not so crazy about Hannah Montana but it still beats ANT farm by like infinity. If someone ever says they like it I swear i'll punch them til their eyes bleed.
The show is cheesy, annoying, and completely unrelatable. Why are they in high school, why not a middle school for gifted students or something? That parts not a big deal but what really gets me is the plots that are just so predictable. Terrible show, not worth the time watching

I enjoy this show. It's NOT THE WORST, so all of you, shut the fuck up. The WORST LIVE-ACTION SHOW IS SHAKE IT UP... Anywho, it's cute. The characters can be annoying sometimes, but it's pretty entertaining. I just saw the promo for the Season 3 and it look SOO AMAZING. I can't wait!!! :D
EVERY character on this show is incredibly stupid and wimpy, even the flipping adults. Gibson is the councilor that acts like he is still not potty trained and makes himself look like a fool. Heck, every single character makes themselves look like fools. NEVER WATCH THIS CRAP, and i'm not just playing around. When I say this show is stupid, I MEAN IT. When i saw the episode ParticipANTs, i was like "WHAT THE, THIS SHOW IS TRASH, TAKE THIS SHOW TO CANCELLATION RIGHT AWAY BEFORE I BARF SO MUCH THAT IT STINKS". This show DOES stink, and worse than what you think. Chyna Parks, Olive, Fletcher, Paisley, ESPECIALLY LEXI AND GIBSON, and every other kid at that program deserves to go back to nursery school where they will be taught to be real in this life. I am warning you. THIS SHOW IS CRAPPIER THAN YOU THINK.
This show is about a girl named Chyna Parks who goes to this gifted program for Middle Schoolers and she goes to school with her friends named Olive Doyled, an annoying spoiled brat who thinks she knows everthing, and Fletcher Quimby, a boy who has a crush on Chyna. Chyna also has a brother named Cameron Parks.
All I have to say about this show is that it horrble. It's not funny at all, it's unoriginal, it's creepy and scary at the same time, and it almost made me puke. It's also very mediocre. No good quality at all, it just has so much low quality.
Seriously, who are the writers, and who is the one that makes people make crappy shhows on Disney Channel? Seriously, I don't blame the actors, it's pretty much the people that come up and write this crap. I mean c'mon Disney Channel, you can do better than that! There's noting funny about this show at all. Like, there was this one episode where a robot walks into a classroom, and the audience laughs, and hen this one boys like "Look a Robot!" and then the audience laughs again, like c'mon! What the heck is funny about that? There's nothing funny about a boy saying "Look a Robot!" That's basicily the problems most of the live action shows on Disney Channel and other channels have. They spam the laugh tracks.
Ugh, so much stupidy in shows these days. There's nothing funny about that. That's like if I'm cheating on some girl, and she then finds out. Would that be funny? NO! That's not funny! Also, why is it that in every episode of Farm, there's always singing? What the heck? You don't have to have so much singing in all of your damn episodes. Also, why is the word "ANT" in every episode of Farm? That's a sign of laziness. Like, I'm just fed up with how many messed up shows there are on Disney Channel.
This show sucks. It just sucks balls. I cannot believe someone at Disney Channel has not cancel this show.
Final Score: 1.0
Edit: Wait this show is getting positive reviews! Judging from all the dislikes on the recent negative reviews. Maybe it's because most of the people who like this show are just stupid Fangirls that are really pissed off.
Really ANT Farm is the worst show on Disney Channel next to Gravity Falls and Fish Hooks. I thought ANT Farm would've got better but failed to do so. I would've rather had a 4th season of The Suite Life on Deck then this. Disney why did you do this to us.
Also, I hate Fletcher I wished he got electrocuted.
