    . Do think sometimes Maya and Miguel will become Most Popular kids tv series of All time? Hmmm
  • Noticed something?

    1.5
    Everyone in here is stupid except Maya.



    Plot: Maya helps the other characters in this show because they act very stupid that they cause mistakes.



    Characters: It makes me give some question why this show has no balance and order. Maya is the only smart character in this show, the smartest. And it's very unfair to the other characters around and Maya herself. Voice acting is above average.



    Value: Helping everyone is a great lesson, but why are those characters are too dumb and lazy? It's really off balance.



    Art: It's okay I guess. Animation is good.





    Overall: 1.5. The other characters needs to have a member that is in military service so they can sharpen themselves up.

  • Maya & Miguel? Its more like the Maya Santos Show!

    1.9
    Maya and Miguel is a decietful title, becuase it implies that the show is about Maya AND Miguel! Watch the show just once and one can ask, "who is REALLY the star?" Every show is about how Maya tries to save the day, how Maya fixes everyone's problems, how Maya is the only one on that show with any inteligence! Poor Miguel has turned into a background character whos only purpose is to show how great Maya is. Not to mention how Maya is everyone's life coach, how old is she? 10?! And why don't these people ever get tired of her ideas that usually get her and everyone involved looking like fools? But that doesn't matter considering she never gets in any real trouble anyway. Call it the Maya show or make Miguel a little smarter so that he gets some ideas every once and a while.moreless

    As far as PBS shows go, this is on the upper scale. Funny, Witty,good family values...



    Ten year old twins Maya and Miguel come from a hispanic family. Maya is always coming up with some crazy idea to help their freinds, while Miguel just tries to keep her from getting carried away, although most of the time she drags him into the plan. Their freinds, Theo- an african-american boy with a knack for inventing and science, Andy- a boy who was born with one arm, but gets along fine, Chrissy- another hispanic girl and Maya's best freind, and Maggi- a chinese/american girl. and of course Poco, their pet parot.moreless
  • Maya keeps Miguel on his toes while Miguel keeps Maya's feet on the ground.

    9.2
    Maya and Miguel are 10 year old twins, and they have a funny pet parrot named Paco. Maya is very bubbly, friendly and always wanting to help, even when no help is needed (or wanted). Miguel is really into sports, especially soccer, and minds his own business unless Maya intervenes. My favorite episode is when Maya thinks Miguel has a crush on a new girl at their school named Esperanza because Maya found a note he wrote to her. But what Maya doesn’t know, is Miguel wrote the note for his friend Andy because Andy doesn’t know any Spanish and Esperanza only speaks Spanish. Maya talks Miguel up to Esperanza, and she ends up having a crush on him, which understandably irritates poor Andy. Maya eventually learns the truth, and starts talking Miguel down to Esperanza, and encourages Andy to talk to her. Poor Esperanza ends up so confused, and Miguel ends up bringing back his old imaginary friend and talking to him in public so Esperanza starts to think he’s wierd, so she finally takes more of an interest in befriending Andy. I was laughing so hard the first time I saw that episode! I’ve learned quite a bit of Spanish watching this show, which is both fun and educational, even for a 20-something like me.moreless
