Great Show
17 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is a great show. I enjoy watching it on the weekends. Casey and Derek are hilarious. I'm glad the show was picked up. I hope it continues for a while longer. The cast is great too. Casey and Derek fight just like any other siblings I know of. I like the plot and how each kid is involved with the show. I give the show a ten. Good going everyone. I can't wait to see what else is in store for the family. This is a great brother and sister show, no matter what the age. Disney always seem to find a great show. It's a bit of a mixture of Lizzie McGuire and That's So Raven, which are also two popular Disney Channel shows. Keep it up!
