life with derek-one of the better Disney shows!
19 December 2005 | by xxWHOAAdudexSee all my reviews

Life with derek is a great show, better then most shows played on Disney channel. Before this show started to air, i had a feeling i would love it, because a great actor, one of my favorites, is on it, Michael Seater. Casey's craziness makes the show what it is, as well as Derek being mean and always getting his way.Ashley Leggat is a very talented actor who can really play her character well. Another character on this show that i like is Sam who is played by Kit Weyman. If you have seen the episode babe raiders, his character starts to play out better in this show. The show has comedy, some drama, and is just a great show. I really do enjoy watching this show on the weekends. Overall, this is a show that you can watch alone, with family, and with friends, and you can really enjoy it.
