Storyline

Sister and brother Judy and Peter move to a new house with Aunt Nora. In the attic, they find an unusual board-game, Jumanji. When they play, a rhyming quiz appears, and they're sucked into the bizarre world of Jumanji, where they have to solve the riddle in order to win the game. They meet Alan, who has been trapped there for years, and the three of them get into action-packed scrapes as they try to help Alan escape, but are always thwarted at the last minute.

As Good as the Movie
3 August 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

"Jumanji" the T.V. series was as good as the Jumanji movie, which I really enjoyed. I used to watch this show on UPN before I went to school in the morning.

"Jumanji" the T.V. series was sort of based on the movie. Peter and Judy would go into the game everyday to see Alan. My favorite character was Peter. He was clever when it came to solving the clues.

My favorite episode was the one when Aunt Nora went into the game. That episode was hysterical. My favorite part of each episode was when Peter and Judy first receive the clue because the clue always sounded very interesting. I, along with Judy and Peter, would try to solve the clue.

Overall I really enjoyed this series and was sad to see it leave. I give this show 9/10 stars.
