Storyline

A heartwarming and sentimental comedy, "Sydney to the Max" centers around the experiences of a sociable, goodhearted middle schooler named Sydney Reynolds and her protective, doting - and sometimes clueless. - single dad Max as they navigate the challenges of growing up. Set during two time-frames, decades apart, flashback scenes to young Max and his best friend Leo in the 1990s parallel many of the funny predicaments Sydney and her BFF Olive get themselves into. VHS camcorders, bleached skater hair and other '90s-defining "relics" aside, Sydney and Max come to realize, aided by Sydney's kicky grandmother Judy, who's well-versed in Max's childhood antics, that they have more in common than either realizes.

Girl Meets World meets ANT Farm.
26 January 2019 | by cinephile-27690See all my reviews

I mostly enjoy Disney shows, and this may be a new favorite for me. Stuck in the Middle is still my #1,but this is very high up on the list.

This reminded me a lot of Girl Meets World, since it's about a father-daughter relationship, and a relationship with the main character's best friend, which is interesting since the co-star Ava Kolker was on that. GMW also starts the series with 7th grade as well!

It also reminded me of ANT Farm due to the school issues.

The only true problem I have with this show is it looks like the next episode looks like it will have a very similar plot, which makes me worried that this show will be redundant.

Despite that, I look forward to seeing the next episode next week, and I hope I will be looking forward to seeing this new Disney show! If I truly decide I love this, I will write a review for another episode, but I highly reccomend trying this show out!

PS, many say this reminds them of a 2000s Disney show, and if memory serves me, correctly, they may be right!
