Below average sitcom, but not terrible
16 June 2012 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

True Jackson VP is a show with an oddball plot and even odder characters. The show is funny at times, but isn't funny enough to satisfy most. Another Nickelodeon attempt at comedy, but mostly the show just ain't that funny!

True Jackson is about a 15 year old girl with the same name who gets chosen to become a vice president of a major fashion label called Mad Styles. True Jackson is the protagonist and the best character on the show. She always does the right thing, and never gets (too) angry. Set in New York, True has to deal with her REALLY high maintenance co-worker Amanda Cantwell, a woman who isn't too thrilled about having to work with True, a 15 year old girl. Amanda is extremely sarcastic and talkative, and a total suck-up to the boss. She would probably jump off a building for him! Then there's True's bubble-headed friends, Lulu and Ryan. Lulu's an average girly girl, not the brightest girl, but she's sort of smart in her own way. Then there's Ryan, a total idiot who is a HORRIBLE character inside out! HE gives the show its poor image, people. Max Madigan is the boss of Mad Styles, and sort of an airhead who can still do his job. Then there's Oscar, the odd male secretary, and Jimmy, the mail carrier who is literally obsessed with his work.

This show I wouldn't really recommend if you have high expectations. The characters are annoying (True isn't), and the plot is silly. A 15 year old girl becoming vice president of a New York fashion label? That doesn't happen in real life. Skip this show and see something better.
