Storyline

The show follows the Jonas Brothers through fun and unusual situations as they try to live ordinary lives. The series will also feature original Jonas Brothers songs created especially for the show. "JONAS" is set in the Jonas family's New Jersey home (a converted fire station on Jonas Street, the inspiration for their band's name) and at their private school, Horace Mantis Academy. Little brother Frankie also stars, and the family wouldn't be complete without The Big Man, the JONAS bodyguard. Written by Alan Baltes

Sadly, this might be the best original show on Disney channel right now.
19 July 2009 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

Disney channel shows have really never been very good. They suffer from horrible jokes that only little kids with yet to be developed brains will find amusing, such as Hannah Montana's " (Insert name here) say what?!" Surprisingly, this show doesn't have too many moments with bad jokes. The show is fast paced, and though it is really stupid, the jokes aren't particularly corny, or bad for that matter. They're just extremely stupid.

The Lucas brothers (Played by the Jonas brothers) are fictional characters in a band called Jonas (named after their street). All three brothers go to a private school, and get into wacky mischief. Kevin Jonas is the oldest, and definitely the dumbest on the show. Usually he is the comic relief type. Joe Jonas is generally the center of attention on the program, but he's also an idiot. Nick Jonas is the straight man, who's role seems to be getting angry at the other two. It's kind of a dumbed down three stooges act.

The brothers give surprisingly good performances, with Kevin and Joe showing off their comedic acting skills with fairly good timing. Nick is the straight man, and possibly too reserved for his own good. But the three of them give decent enough performances. The other main characters are the guys' schoolyard chum and costume designer Stella (Chelsea Staub), who is an alright character, and then we have Macy (Nicole Gale Anderson), who is a creepy and annoying fan girl. Don't much care for the character, as she's on the borderline between okay, and Hannah Montana humor.

The jokes on the show are better than typical Disney. They are somewhat remnant of the type of joke on Even Stevens. It's goofy, but somewhat entertaining, perhaps because of the performances. It's really hard to describe why this is alright, and what every other current Disney show isn't. The lack of laugh track is a plus. The performances are better. The timing is more on. The show is clearly not meant to be realistic at all, but it has a small bit of realism to it. It's clear no one is taking anything seriously, and it's played off as a sort of alternate jokey reality. It's difficult to explain...

The show is just a breath of fresh air, considering how bad every other Disney channel show is. Even this one isn't very good, and it's still the channel's best. It's one that possibly parents won't cringe at, and one that has some small bit of value, that makes it at least watchable and maybe even somewhat entertaining.

My rating: ** 1/2 out of ****. 30 mins. TVY7 My rating:
