Good Show, But Nothing Special or New
When I 1st saw the early promos for this show, I didn't think it would be stupid, but when I found out that Roshon Fegan would be in it, that was the main reason I decided to check it out, and I found it pretty good, but it's true that all the jokes have been used before in other Disney shows, and that it's rather predictable, but it's alright.The acting isn't bad or amateur, but it can be better and more professional, and for those of you who think Davis Cleveland(Flynn) is a bad actor, it's only because he's so young that his acting is not believable, but overall the acting is decent, but nowhere near as good as most other Disney Channel shows. As for the dancing, it's not a crowd-pleaser because Bella Thorne and Zendaya Coleman are alright, but not that great of dancers(though I hope they improve by the 2nd or even the possible 3rd season), and the only real dance pro is Roshon Fegan and anyone who's seen the Camp Rock Movies would know that, and It kinda makes it worse knowing that Rosero McCoy, who choreographed Camp Rock 2, is the choreographer of this show, but it's not so bad. But here's something I find very irritating and shocking: Disney got Bella and Zendaya to sing a song called "Watch Me" which annoyed me so much because even though Zendaya is credited as a singer, she and Bella are terrible at it, and they even filmed a music video which wasn't bad but they can't sing. Speaking of music, I think I should add that I only like 4 songs from this show, my favorite being Dance For Life by Adam Hicks featuring Drew Seeley. The music in this show also needs some serious improvements. The main reason I'm so mad about this is because I would've hoped that the 2 stars of the show wouldn't be singers, but now that I see them singing, I have a bad feeling that they will turn Rocky and Cece into singers on the show which I will dread for life. Another thing I will definitely agree with is that Ty and Deuce don't add much to the story lines for the show because all Ty does is dance on the street, try to woo girls, and hang out with Flynn while Deuce just cracks jokes and seems like a bad boy but turns out to be cool. They were simply developed to complete the ensemble. All in All, Shake it Up is a good show, but it can be better, so I will give it a 7.5/10
