Hilarious
29 March 2016 | by nehabanerjeeSee all my reviews

This show is hilarious and doesn't need the laugh track because it can easily get real laughs from the viewers unlike any other sitcoms I have seen. For the first time ever, I found myself laughing along with the laugh track almost every time there was an attempted joke.

It does contain humour for slightly older children but the 'mature' jokes are very subtle and can only be understood by people who have been exposed to mature content before. There are very few of the 'mature' jokes and I hardly doubt that young children will be able to understand half of the jokes aimed for an older audience.

The characters may act ridiculous and act stupid but that is what makes it a sitcom. Unlike other Disney shows that I've seen, the teenage characters actually act like teenagers with teenage minds, rather than like 8 year olds trapped in a teenage body, and teenage minds aren't always completely pure and innocent.

This show is constantly making me laugh and even though, like most sitcoms, there isn't a single strict plot line, the rough storyline is very interesting, in my opinion. There is lots of humour with elements of cute romance and small aspects of scientific information in each episode.

The only thing is that children may confuse a lot of the 'science' in the show to be real and existing in today's time, which isn't. However, to most older children, it is quite clear when the 'science' in the show is correct and factual and when the 'science' is made up and discovered by Mr Young to take the characters of the show on an adventure.

Overall, I love this show and would recommend it to any audiences aged 10 or older.
