    I never found this show slightly enjoyable, here's why.

    It's boring, not funny, and confusing at times what is going on. Nuff said.

    Yeah, so about time I do this show.



    So basically it's about these two girls who get roles on a dance TV show. That and dealing with high school problems is basically the whole show.



    It's not really a bad show. It has its moments. It can be clever and funny. But like most shows, it really declined in quality with each season. Season 1 was the best - the humor was sincere, clean - but the 3rd season was easily the worst. The problem I see - much like with what I said about . Farm - is that this show tends to over-exaggerate its acting and resort to toilet humor and crappy jokes. And sometimes when it comes to their characters, it highlights and best and worst of their acting.



    For example, CeCe Jones is established to be very lazy, and tends to not take school seriously. In one episode, "Protest it Up" she talks about how she stayed up all night just to sleep through a school assembly and pulls out napping glasses and a pillow. She is later shown sleeping on Rocky's shoulder, snoring loudly and drooling all over it. While some may find this funny, I was not amused, and to me it highlighted the biggest problem with recent Disney shows. They tend to over-exaggerate their acting. That, coupled with poor writing, tends to lead to bad episodes. The same can be said for another character - Ty - as I have often found that he greatly over-exaggerates himself when he speaks regardless of the subject. I couldn't stand it from him, and it made it hard for me to enjoy that character.



    This show has more positive episodes than negatives, but its problems do compound, especially in the later seasons. Overall, it's a solid show - good for a few laughs here or there - but it's really nothing special.moreless

    Shake It Up follows the misadventures of CeCe Jones and Rocky Blue, two best friends who land roles on Shake It Up! Chicago and dream of becoming professional dancers. Overall, I found the show to be quite entertaining, and contrary to a popular opinion, I liked the clothes they wore. Though she had a tendency to be ditzy, I liked the character of CeCe, and thought she was a very unique character. I liked how she and Rocky were so passionate about their love of dancing, and (another unpopular opinion) I thought they were talented dancers. I liked the character Rocky because of how clever and witty she was and how balanced her friendship with CeCe was. The characters Deuce, Dina, Gunther and Tinka never really made me laugh (their voices were REALLY annoying, but bearable) but they entertained me enough, they were okay. I liked Shake It Up because even though the plot was about singing/dancing (I know a lot of people hate Disney shows that are about either of those things; I know there has been a lot of Disney shows with singing, but SIU was the first dance-based show) the episodes were really creative and entertained me. I really hated all of the SIU songs though, with the exception of Watch Me.moreless
