    Shake It Up doesn't shake up the kid-com formula one bit, but it's something more than the usual shiny-sparkly cuteness. [20 Dec 2010, p.44]

However I will say this the show is straight forward a kidThis came out in the second half of 2010 also known as "The Downhill of Disney". However I will say this the show is straight forward a kid show about dancing, decent believable. Bella: Uh.. she acts like the "I deserve this Im great person", but watching this Ive noticed she can't dance, she can't sing, she is only a decent comedian. If it weren't probably for her likableness she wouldnt be on the show. Zendaya: She seems to be the girl with the actual talent. Professional dancer (And good, saw her on Dancing With the Stars amazing), she actually can sing no surprise that Disney singned her and not the other. But she seems to be more of a Drama/Horror/Thriller/Action you know those type of films or shows. Caroline: I mean her character is dumb (not actually just the way they thought her up). Caroline can act, she can sing, she is a better dancer then Bella. (Another example of them not giving the peole with actual talent, dancing, and singing abilities the higher spot. Kenton: Didnt really care for the character. Flynn: I guess they come up with snappy lines from time-to-time but overall poor job. Roshon: He can rap, sing, dance, and act but his character I don't know unless his character is with his sister Rocky (Zendaya) then he isnt really funny. Deuce: Same as Flynn snappy line from time-to-time but overall poor. Georgia: What can I say she's funny every TV comedy that has a mom I usually end up loving them (Are We There Yet/Everybody Hates Chris/Good Luck Charlie). The music lets say the 1st CD for example had 16 songs maybe 8-10 were actually good. Twist My Hips, Not Too Young, Breakout, It's Alive, Bling, Bling, All Electric, Watch Me, Just Wanna Dance, We Right Here, and Dance for Life. Acting: Zendaya (B+/A-), Georgia (The Mom) (A+), and from time to time Roshon (B-) and Bella (B+), Adam (B-), Kenton (C+), Caroline (B+/A-), Davis (C+/B-). Dancing: Roshon (A+), Zendaya (A+), Bella (B-/C+). Story/Plots eh from time to time. Music (B-). In season one (C+), Two (A-), Three (B-/B+). Me I only watch new episodes if I watch a rerun it better be a good episode like "Reality Check It Up", and not bad like "Fire It Up". Expand

Dancing is excellent and there are quite a few good themes present. However, it is a bit "cheesy" on the side and unoriginal - considering we have already encountered several other TV shows where the characters have to deal with fame. On the bright side, though, it is good to see occasional family moments where kids can relate to, and how Disney is entering the modern world. Expand

Disney must be desperate to air a show that has kids on there who can't act, dance, or sing. THIS MUST HAVE BEEN THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL PICK OF KIDS! The hispanic girl is talented and humorous, but the one with the bangs is terrible. How did she even make it through the audition process I wonder??? She is like 12, but looks, acts, and dresses like she is 21! TROUBLE -TROUBLE-TROUBLE. Disney seems to pick kids that end up drinking, on drugs, or pregnant! Nice role models for our kids to admire. HOPE THIS SHOW ENDS SOON... Expand

I enjoy Disney shows with my kids all the time. I laugh at them too. But this is just disgusting garbage. We watched 2 episodes and I was so angry after the 2nd I refuse for them to watch it at home.

    The first episode had the girls getting debit cards and spending all their money so they lied to their friends and took them to dinner and then tried to put bugs in their food and dine and ditch to get out of their bill. I'm still trying to find the lesson in it since they didn't get in any trouble.

    The second had them throwing a house party when their parents were away. Come on Disney what are we trying to say here. I get it kids are kids but these kids are void of any moral compass.

    And they are snide and their acting sucks. Awful show. Just painfully bad.
