  • As the bell rings, it breaks into pieces.

    1.0
    Argh.



    Plot: I don't know the plot, because it has NO plot at all! It always consists of teens shouting and babbling in the front of the camera.



    Characters: Annoying and terrible, poor excuse for actors, and poor excuse for characters. ADD characters are present.



    Humor: Bad sense of humor, trying hard to be funny, and that laugh track is only making it worse by piercing your ears.



    Show Value: No show value at all. Repetitive.



    Overall: -2.5. I wish this show didn't aired on the TV.moreless

    exactly what the classification says, i dont get this show(or whatever). it's pointless & not funny. the laugh track doesnt help either. this should be taken off Disney as soon as possible. not to mention, it's on almost durin every commercial break. the actors all suck(except Demi of course)! every ep it's the same thing. every time this comess on, i change the channel. the show's are abysmal. also, the theme song is dumb! please Disney, cancel this retarded 5 min. show! for the people who actually like the show,good for you cuz i cant make you stop watchin it. as for me, As the Bell Rings sucks hard!!moreless
  • Just because you can make a 5 minute sitcom, does not mean you should

    This has got to be one of the most pointless TV shows ever made. ATBR is about 6 friends and their teen issues they discuss between classes. So not only is this yet another teen show, but it's done in 5 minutes. Do we really need to see a teen show in five minutes? The least Disney could have done was put in a cartoon short of maybe Phineas and Ferb, or another short from classic cartoons like Mickey Mouse, Donald, and so on. Not another teen show. The cast are all terrible actors. Scripts are being read, and nobody has the right expression for moments. For example, everyone smiles during a serious moment. As for the stories, they are all generic and uninspired that don't deserve any explanation. The humor is also just as bad, of not worse. The characters try to do funny antics or one liners, but it fails hard. Disney, get this show off the air ASAP. It may only be a 5 minute show, but ATBR feels like you are in 500 years of Purgatory, and you are well advised to stay away from this show.moreless
  • Um...no.

    okay, gippy looking setting with some Episodes you can tell the Acting is sooo fake and poorly done. A crappy idea of a show where it has no meaning, at least not one i can see. even though its only for 5 Minutes, its still a show with a lame storyline and boring setting that i think really has no need to be on the air. Seriously,every episode its the same thing, Open Window, School Hallway, three guys and three girls, and them talking about not so realistic stuff, and then a problem usually arises that the men got to try to fix and see if their plan works. Thank god its only for 5 Minutes, because if this were a 30 minute long show,then there would definitely be some serious and dangerous problems with Viewers. I think Disney Channel needs to stop making shows that are SO Repetitive and get boring quickly because its about the same plot every time. Is Disney Channel losing its touch? If so then let's hope they can think of some great and better shows with finally a different mixture of Plots so you would want to watch more of it to see what happens next! What happened to Kim Possible? All of this Live-Action stuff rising and Animated shows depleting is one of my Pet Peeves.moreless

    Wow alot of people hate this show well I dont!! Its not bad at all. I say Disney has done a good Job (that would be the first in a Year or two! Its funny I have to give Disney its props for that! Its funny like Thats So Raven and Hannah Montana! Even though I prefer Cartoons over Reality because Im reality Impared! I first saw it in August and I wished it was a full show because of how good it is and maybe some people may like it some more. Skipper us the funniest I feel though and Im ending this review here and im only saying this because I need more than 100 words in it!moreless
