Its a cute show, for Sat. morn
11 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm a 15 yr old girl and in my opinion, Potf is a good show but not if you're gonna criticize acting, special effects and w/e..i mean i just wake up on Saturday and watch the shows like raven , suite life and Phil of the future just for a few laughs and a cute TV show. Sure the story line of Potf is clichéd but its cute. Besides...Aly and Ricky are good actors, they play their part well . Oh yes and the fact that Ricky is super hot helps too.

What I'm saying is if you're looking for a cute show on a lazy Saturday morning and you're not in the mood to criticize it, just watch it, you'll get a few laughs its honestly not as bad a show as many people make it out to be. Besides if you're a girl you get 30 minutes of Ricky :P Hope you found this comment helpful.:)
