First off, a friend of mine, who didn't use to watch the show, condemned me once for watching it by saying: "Hey, it is a kids show!", to have me correcting him: "No, it's a comic show!". A lot of kids shows don't get popularity and success unless among kids. This round, it drove for instance an adult male, such as me, and forced him to follow it diligently. A rank that not many kids shows, rather shows, can reach.
Astonishingly, (That's so Raven) is top notch in every way. Although the writing is formulaic, but - believe it or not - it is unpredictable too. You nearly know the end of every storyline since its start, however not "how". This show's scripts managed to make such a smart and funny "how" every time.
I loved its way to braid a good meaning with hilarious events, and a climax that didn't ever miss the opportunity to be crazy. There is a worthy scrutinizing perfection in this; which - again - not many shows can do and maintain.
Aside from having a noticeably delightful charisma, even for the minor parts, all the cast is laughable. They have a certain glamour that made watching them doing anything; magical.
(Raven Symone), (Anneliese van der Pol) and (Orlando Brown) are 3 natural scene-stealers. They radiate charming fun all along. The way they deliver the good lines, and perform the physical comedy, is no less than excellent. It pushes you to wonder how come that these guys were nominated in 2005 and 2007 for Emmy Awards for outstanding children's programming, and never won!
The theme song is uniquely cute and catchy. I never get tired of it, despite how many times I hear it on Youtube for instance!
Bad sides? Well, I can't say that there was any badness. However, (Rondell Sheridan) and (Cory Baxter) were the less charismatic and talented among the rest. And while (Raven)'s many disguises were amusing, wearing like a man never NEVER convinced me, so I felt bad whenever any character was falling for it!
This deserves being the longest-running Disney Channel original series. There is no fullness out of it, since it makes me always hungry for more. Sometimes missing a sitcom's episode is a sin. This time, not watching it twice is. Originally, "sitcom" and "watching one episode twice" don't meet in one sentence unless very few. Here's a new precedent that this show achieves!
