Way out of my demo
10 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, while this show didn't even hit me until I was way out of it's demographic, I did watch it a few times (child at heart and all that), and I recall actually laughing a few times.

Now, granted I have to look at the target demographic to see if the show was a good show for everyone else involved, but for me, I felt that it was like a young person's version of the old Carol Burnett show or the like.

The skits were fairly funny, considering the age group it was designed for, and they were all fairly creative.

I think the part that I actually really enjoyed, which is a little weird, was the theme music. It was so catchy that I still get the little 'Amanda amanda amanda show' part stuck in my head to this date.

So, for the young and the young at heart, I'd recommend giving it a chance to see if it's your bag.
