Critic Reviews

  1. What makes it all work is the good time the Cassidys, especially David, are having in these roles. In the end it's contagious. Shakespeare, no, but clever enough to be good 'tween fun.
  2. Given the dark flavor of Shaun Cassidy's adult TV creations and his own experiences within the music machine, Ruby feels surprisingly ordinary and uninformed, put together out of scraps from the old sitcom drawer.
  3. Cassidys aside, the Ruby pilot, at least, feels more Disney Channel than ABC Family, with a sitcommy pace that doesn't allow for much in the way of plot or character development.

    If you’re old enough to remember “The Partridge Family” and young enough to remember it fondly--which means you’re in your mid-40s and can recite the Echo Valley phone number--then you might enjoy Tuesday night’s pilot episode of Ruby & the Rockits on ABC Family.

    So while there's a genial enough beat at Ruby's heart, based on the pilot, the prospect of regularly watching the show is enough to make you "Da Doo Ron Ron" for the hills.

    I think the show is surprisingly enjoyable. I HATE all those stupid kiddy shows like High school musical and wizards of waverly place. But I think the show is surprisingly enjoyable. I HATE all those stupid kiddy shows like High school musical and wizards of waverly place. But this one is actually bearable, and a fun one to watch with the family. I found myself singing the songs around the house. for a person who normally hates these shows I am genuinely surprised. Full Review »
