    While watching this show all I could think to say is "meh". After two episodes, you don't get much out of its humor and wishes that repeats of hit shows like "Wizard's of Waverly Place", "Hannah Montana", or "Suite Life of Zach and Cody" were out. But, it'll do for now.

    This 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 wouldntThis came out in the second half of 2010 also known as "The Downhill of Disney".

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

    It is evident that Disney Channel is aimlessly attempting to engage with the tween audience a bit more, as younger actors are dominating in this series. 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.

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

    We all know, Disney can't keep a good show, but it's just ridiculous how fast this show wore off. I was really optimistic, after seeing the pilot, and was impressed by the second episode, but after that, the show, I thought just went down the drain. the only 3 disney shows of the decade, I liked throughout the whole series, was Even Stevens, That's so Raven, and Suite Life.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have watched many Disney Channel shows, including Shake It Up. I watched the premiere today on November 7th, and in my opinion it is the worst show on Disney I've ever seen. The two main characters, Rocky and CC, are cute little actors, but horrible dancers. In one of the scenes, Rocky's brother says that she isn't good enough to be on the show, so they do a little dance off. Rocky's brother does a cool little dance, while Rocky repeats it. She does everything he does, except way worse. Another scene when they're auditioning, one of the guys totally dances it out unbelievably. He some how doesn't get in. Then Rocky does a dance. All she does it slide her feet across the dance floor while she shakes her body, then she gets in. It doesn't make sense. Normally I wouldn't make a big deal about it, but the whole show is about this. None of the characters are that funny and it doesn't seem like a show that would get intense and dramatic. Shake It Up is very disappointing. I also didn't find anything good about the show. Expand

    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]
