Underrated show
27 November 2018 | by tattysteinSee all my reviews

Before I begin, I should tell you that I'm a MASSIVE Nickelodeon and Disney Channel sitcom fan. A few years ago I came across this show accidentally by channel surfing, and since I was a big fan of That's So Raven and Cory in the House, I spotted Madison Pettis straight away and decided to watch the rest of the episode. I was eventually hooked!

I believe that this show is incredibly underrated. You can tell that they borrowed elements from That's So Raven (which makes sense because one of the executive producers of that show executive produced THIS show as well), which I absolutely love. It's a pretty funny show, and I don't laugh at a lot of sitcoms (as ironic as that is).

I feel like if it wasn't for its country of origin, the show could've been a lot bigger. It could've spanned on for four seasons easily. It's a shame that the show got cancelled out of the blue. I would've loved the series finale to be Tess, Allie and Sam leaving for college. Like I said, it is completely underrated and it deserved a proper ending.
