Hank Zipzer is a kid, not a regular kid, although he shares the same qualities as any other kid. He is always trying rather too hard or too less. He is a bit of a trouble-maker when it comes to school, but he always manages to wriggle out of it (most of the time) – he does have some allies, two friends – boy and girl – and a rock-star teacher named: Mr Rock (Henry Winkler) – a teacher who is always there for him, whenever Hank feels down. There are some lessons to be learnt during the episodes. And sometimes it is like watching a VLOG of someone's life. However, it has the perfect amount of comedy – and has a very strong cast to help back the show up. If you didn't know already, Hank Zipzer is also known as, Hank. He also has many books, I strongly recommend you read the books. However, you don't need to read the books to understand the series.
The show does a great job of introducing Hank to new-comers. What really amazed me about this show was the fact that Hank Zipzer the TV-Series has already gotten a great rating on IMDb. I strongly support the young actors and actresses – I'm loving the series so-far and can't wait for another one to hit the Box. Honestly, If you love shows like: Horrid Henry, Dennis the Menace, All At Sea, - you will love this. This has elements from those three shows. With all due respect, Hank Zipzer manages to impress me, so let it impress you. Final Rating: "Give it a go, you'll never know until you try it."
8/10 (It has everything that you'd want to see in a show starring a kid called Hank Zipzer.)
