20 April 2009 | Ressi
| A Surprisingly Fun Show
This show delivers on so many more levels than most would expect from a Disney Channel show. It reminds me of the good ol' sitcoms i grew loving, Home Improvement, Fresh Prince of Bel Air & Saved by the Bell. Its a show the parents can enjoy watching with their kids, instead of counting the minutes until its over.

vs Hannah Montana: This is not the usual cookie cutter sitcom that Hannah Montana tends to be. The jokes are not all based on "wacky moments". They have done a great job with character development and getting you to care about what they are doing. Selena Gomez surpasses Miley Cyrus by leaps and bounds as an actress. And i can see her growing up and following in the foot steps of the likes of Amanda Bynes or Hilary Duff, in finding great success.

Characters: -Max (the youngest) is for the younger audience, from 7-10 -Justin (oldest) is the goofy one, which every great sitcom has (Screech, Jazz & Al) -The parents are great characters that are given great moments on the show. And have a great amount of depth -Alex, the main character is all around likable. The psychology of her comedy is is far more mature than you would expect. And Selena does a great selling every joke. There are moments that her timing is that of the Office.

Conclusion: It may not be everybody's flavor, but many will be pleased. The kids fall in love with the show and it will grow on you too, given a fair shake. Its no 30 Rock or Office, but it is...Wizards of Waverly Place. And the best way to describe it in short, is fun.
