How to Watch: "The Wannabes Starring Savvy"

Step 1: Recognize a solid kid show when you see one. "The Wannabes Starring Savvy" is lighthearted fun without being too sugary or too taxing on the nerves, which is not an easy thing to do in this age of Disney Channel fluff.

Step 2: Sit back and enjoy. The premise revolves around five teens (Andrew Bowen Stern, Drew Reinartz, Shaylen Carroll, Alan Shaw and Mariah Parks), who are attending a stuffy performing arts school -- but what they really "Wannabe" is pop stars. The school's principal Mr. Pesckow (David LaDuca) has strict rules against such behavior and when the kids get caught jamming' in the lunchroom, he gives them a second chance by sending them to work after school at the local sweets shop owned by Mr. Moody (Steven Scott). Although he seems tough at first, Moody understands the kids' need to shake it up because he also has a tween daughter (Sarah Gabrielle LeMaire) who wants to perform. So, against his better judgment, he allows his daughter to join the others in not only cleaning up but also providing the shop with a little singing and dancing -- even if that means they have to wear crazy costumes to disguise themselves in case the principal stops by. You think dressing up as fruit might sound a little silly, but these guys nail it.

Step 3: Remember this isn't rocket science."The Wannabes" doesn't pretend to be the best kid show ever, but its cast is a pretty hilarious mix of personalities, with some truly stellar vocal talents. There's plenty of catchy tunes and cool music videos, too, which, if done well, always brings added value to tween programming. Let's just say "The Wannabes" provides better entertainment than a lot of these tiresome kiddie retreads. The show is currently airing overseas but I think it's supposed to hit the States soon, so look out for it.
