Dylan Riley Snyder,
True Jackson's catchphrase "He said what now"?! comes from when Keke Palmer was told of the news of her casting. She couldn't believe it and told the producers "You said what now?!" - the producers loved it so much they made it her character's catchphrase. See more »
Take a moment here to look at all the glowing ten star reviews for this show on this page. Now click on the reviewers to see their OTHER reviews. Notice anything? Yeah, I did too. All these people who love love love TRUE JACKSON VP haven't written any other reviews for any other TV shows or movies or ....anything. Hmmmm...I think I smell "plants"! I watched this show with my daughter because usually we enjoy those NICKELODEON and Disney CHANNEL shows. Lord knows I have sat through everything from SUITE LIFE, HANNAH MONTANA, LIFE WITH DEREK, UNFABULOUS, NED'S DECLASIFID SCHOOL SURVIVAL GUIDE, THATS SO RAVEN ...and I have sat through them with a smile on my face and a giggle in my throat. I actually find myself ENJOYING a lot of these shows. And then comes TRUE JACKSON.
I have seen KeKe Palmer in movies like AKEELAH AND THE BEE and JUMP IN and I recognize talent and I genuinely LIKE her (I even sort of like her singing!) but THIS? THIS is the best show they could come up with for her???? Do you remember the latter day episodes of THATS SO RAVEN where Raven worked for the difficult fashion designer and had a nemesis at work who hated her? Yeah....well TRUE JACKSON works in a similar place. With similar people. And has a best girl friend and best guy friend who show up for hijinks...sort of like "Chelsea" and "Eddie" from RAVEN. In fact, all that's missing is for True to have a chubby rascally little brother named "Corey!" The few times I have watched this show I have felt like I was watching THATS SO RAVEN...CONTINUED. All thats different is True has no psychic abilities. Maybe next time I throw my remote at the TV screen it will hit her in the head and she'll start having visions. We can only hope! Terribe writing, weak gags, unlikable characters, stupid story lines.....need I go on? Better luck next time, KeKe!
