You're Trying Too Hard (Again), Disney!, 12 December 2014
Author: slimer8489 from United States

Oh, PrankStars! What a piece of history this was! You see, this was made at a time when Disney Channel was trying to crank out some new sort of style to their channel, in which they were trying to be rebellious and crap. They started with a crappy sketch show, So Random, where all the jokes mainly consisted of pop-culture and every episode had a Harry Potter punching bag-like joke. During the time that they released that show, they pump out PrankStars, a more kid-friendly version of Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd.... But maybe a bit too kid-friendly. Let's look, shall we? Alright, so this show is hosted by Mitchell Musso, you know, that weird kid from Hannah Montana who later had a short-lived singing career. After that atrocity ending, he was given the job of hosting this even bigger atrocity. This show is about Mitchell and his "possey" going around, tricking everyday schmucks. Seems alright, but it fails miserably.

My problem with the show is the pranks themselves. I feel that this is mainly because they're on such a clean network like Disney Channel. The pranks come off as either too cruel or too stupid. Like one "prank" involved Musso lying to a fan about a free dinner. Then, when it comes time to pay, the kid is left alone at the table, probably wondering how he's gonna get out of this one. That's just mean-spirited! More "pranks" include one Disney Channel star saying that their voice gave out and that it was up for one of the everyday schmucks to speak for them. That's... just... stupid. I can't even call that a prank.

Overall, this show didn't seem so bad, but the pranks themselves and the network it aired on is what ruined it.
