Disney Channel (ended 2001)
|Tell me...what was so good about Annie? |
I personally liked the ENTIRE show, even Annie, but the show faced a creative retardation in the third season. And that's what Disney wanted.
The first two seasons introduced arcs and planted seeds for some storylines we were supposed to see in season three. The show had substance. A goal. An ongoing plot. Characters were based in reality. They had meaningful relationships. This was a show not typical to Disney and was mature. Only it was held back from being more mature by the stupid Disney regulations.
Season Three dropped the whole "aimed for the entire family, including teens" thing and became a show targeted more for the Lizzie McGuire audience. Gone was the emotional struggles caused by Rick's death (except for The Muse), Molly became a minor character, there was no real storyline to think of, the plots became completely outlandish and just plain strange, the show wasn't dramatic anymore, it became significantly more campy, and didn't really cause you to THINK like the first two seasons did.
So please...tell me why the first seasons sucked and the Annie year was so much better.
"That's So Raven", anyone?
|Not at all. You were saying that even season 3 of So Weird was better than the other crappy supernatural shows being made for kids, and I offered That's So Raven as an example.|
|i'm sorry to all the annie fans(if their are any) but Fi's episodes were the only good one. About weird stuff and investigating. Then annie became the new lead and it shifted to focus more on her lame singing career and less on creepy stuff, and the creepy stuff they had on her episodes wasn't up to par. Plus that bright colored school bugged me.|
Anybody know the phrase "jumping the shark"?
That's what So Weird did when Annie came on. I was only about ten years old, and still I knew that it was a bad idea from the moment she walked on. She basically ended my obsession with the show- I used to love it SO much when Fi was on. I think it was my first favorite show. I used to have entire tapes filled up with episodes. Sigh... I miss what Disney channel used to be like, when they had shows like So Weird and Even Stevens on. I would still watch that channel if shows like that aired, even though I'm fifteen. Now the channel just sucks, I only watch it when I have to babysit my cousins.
I think the last episode I saw of So Weird was the one with the voodoo doll girl... then I just gave up one the whole Annie thing. Did they ever get to the bottom of the whole thing with Fi's dad? Ever? EVER???
