I'm going to have to give the BEST ACTRESS award to Tiffany Thornton who plays Tawni. I think she is probably one of the better actors in this series, she has great comic timing and she is very pretty, too. I don't have many complaints about her, if any at all.
And despite a personal love for Demi Lovato's singing and her person in general, I was not particularly fond of her acting. I think she is a wonderful actress but I believe she could be much, much better. She has specific scenes when she is a top notch performer, and others when she really needs help to make it believable. Her character is funny, though, and has a lot of great lines.
As for the character of Grady, played by Doug Brochu, I believe that he is very funny. Brochu is a wonderful actor and has seemingly good timing.
Sterling Knight as Chad Dylan Cooper is also a great actor, but I believe he could do better. I think that the Chad Dylan Cooper character could be written in to be funnier, because the show is a comedy.
The actress who plays Portlyn, Jillian Murray, is very, very funny and I hope she appears in more episodes, although she doesn't play a major role, I believe she is a good addition to the show and to the shows comedy.
Brandon Smith, as Nico, is a good actor and his character is very funny. But I believe he could be better, though. His character is very much a stereotypical Disney guy, same as the guys in Hannah Montana or Cory In The House. He's a guy that kind of gets really obsessive when it comes to girls, a bit obnoxious, if I might add. However, despite that, I think Smith is a great actor and Nico is a good character.
Allisyn Ashley Arm, Zora, is somewhat an obnoxious character. I think she is somewhat unnecessary when it comes to the show in general, but she is still a decent actress. She's somewhat hyperactive which can become very annoying after a while, but her lines are very funny and her delivery is excellent.
The show in general is very funny. It has great lines, along with some decent, yet mediocre, acting. I believe the writing, as well as the acting, could be more sophisticated and it was guided towards the younger crowd, which was something I wasn't expecting considering the actual plot of the show. The rivalry between the two shows, So Random and Mackenzie Falls, is somewhat stereotypical, one that you would see in any other television show when there is a rivalry between shows, and is somewhat predictable. I think the show's writing is very simple and they need to be more complex when they are writing. But it wasn't a bad show. It wasn't the best show in the entire world, but it wasn't horrible, either. I hope that the show evolves more and becomes a bit less predictable and more directed to all audiences, instead of just the younger crowd.
