One of the better Disney Channel shows. Not flawless, but still enjoyable.
25 February 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

With "Austin & Ally", Disney Channel has made yet another sitcom in line which centers about a teen who becomes a famous musician. Which means that a normal kid can live a normal life, while being a popstar at the same time. Of course, by watching those shows it means that you'll have to let pass some illogical notions. In the last years, Disney Channel has been desperate to cash in on their stars and have made most of their shows and TV movies as big, cultural phenomenon's ("High School Musical", "Hannah Montana", "Wizards of Waverly Place and "Camp Rock" come to mind). I'll confess those shows have been a guilty pleasure of mine. But there's no denial they're glossy products, aiming just for kids, which is even more evident on the current DC shows. "Austin & Ally" is still a fine exception. While it doesn't bring back to the glory days of DC sitcoms and it's not absent of flaws, it's still one of the better shows from Disney Channel and is better than shows as "Shake it Up" and "A.N.T. Farm".

"Austin & Ally" may not have the broad appeal as "Good Luck Charlie" or the sheer enjoyment of "Pair of Kings", but it actually have a strength that the current Disney Channel shows lack; The characters. There's a genuine dynamic and chemistry between the characters in it that I haven't seen since the early DC sitcoms. While the acting is far from top notch (especially from male hunk Ross Lynch as Austin), the characters are really likable. Many people detest Dez (Calum Worthy), but I happen to disagree. In my opinion, he's one of the best Disney Channel characters ever made. While I'll admit he can be grating at times, he's still endearing. His frenemy Trish (Raini Rodriguez) is also a feisty character. Laura Marano is a good fit as the insecure and prissy Ally. And while Ross Lynch is the weakest actor, he still brings some genuine energy to his character. The episodes borrows some plot lines from previous shows as "Hannah Montana" and "Sonny With a Chance", but works fine nonetheless. And not to forget that the songs (while obviously marketed to a certain audience) are most of the part really catchy.

The problem with "Austin & Ally" lies on a current notion that several Disney Channel shows has; Making a show specifically for children as opposed to a broader audience. Which means that there unfortunately are many childish jokes and dumb comments along. If it wasn't for that, "Austin & Ally" would have been a real throwback to the earlier Disney shows. But for what it is, it's a fine show. Take it for what its; It's just silly, trashy fun and not supposed to be something else either!
