Crazy Credits

Adil conjures up the names of the cast members but can't do it quite right: Katie Sheridan's name deflates and flies around, Vicky Longley's name comes out mixed up and has to be kicked into place, Jordan Metcalf's name is too heavy and falls on Adil's foot & Adam Morris's melts on his head.

Quite strange.
5 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, so the acting is awful and you can't really deny that. I'm not sure whether the actors are British and bad, or American trying to be British, but either way, their accents cannot be real. No Brits talk like that. The story lines are predictable and some of the scenarios the characters find themselves in are ridiculous. The show is obviously low-budget, as is made clear by the average special effects. The genie, Adil, has the most stupid voice and makeup on, it's almost laughable. I feel embarrassed for him. But ultimately, I think the show is designed to be silly watching. Like the other Nickelodeon UK show, Renford Rejects, which was really quite awful.

On the positive sides, I can imagine the show being a bit of fun-watching for younger children, such as below 11. Also, the two sisters and very attractive and well worth a look. Give the show a few tries, and once you adopt to its unique style, you may find it interesting.
