Trivia

In the Sub Station, there is a poster in the background for "Sublet", which is a blatant nod to the musical "Rent", as the word "sublet" is a synonym for "rent", and the posters are designed in similar styles. See more »

One of the More Decent Shows To New Disney
23 June 2008 | by IllyngophobiaSee all my reviews

Honestly,I hate new Disney and all that it's worth.I'm more for Zoog Disney.Don't get me wrong,some of the newer Disney is cool.Phil of the Future is my favorite of the new Disney era.But,WOWP is different.It's not perfect,it's not god awful, it's decent.

Now,I may have said I hated this show in the past.But this is my way of saying,I hate change and I'm not use to new things.I cast down and watched some,and thought it was cool.It delves into a Harry Potter feel,but it's set at home,rather than a boarding school.

Plot:Alex,Max and Justin are just your typical teeangers.Trying to balance social lives,school,friends,family and of course trying to not lose their minds while living together under one roof.But,they always have time to fit in something extra,and thats magic!Living it up with their mom,who isn't a wizard,and their dad who lost his powers,things are looking good.But they have a battle to face in the future.A competition to see who will keep their powers.The winner keeps their powers,the loser loses their powers forever.Who will it be?

The show is good for the giggles,but it's not too perfect.And it's been at least seven years since they had a Disney show,revolving around the 'paranormal'.We have magic,in Thats so Raven,we had a psychic teens,and other kids who had strange powers,and in So Weird,we had a mix of just about everything! Wizards isn't exactly realistic,unless you believe in witchcraft and magic,but it is entertaining,and a hell of a lot better than Hannah Montana.So I take my comment back on what I said about the show.Go watch the show if you have time.
