Review this tv show
This is a Disney show, so it can’t really go full bore into Ryan Murphy’s brand of strident political incorrectness. Instead it does a warmed-over version, providing a little bite here and there, but otherwise pitching the humor toward lukewarm screwball.
The result is equal parts clever and sweet, with an energetic cast and a love triangle plot that’s sure to make junior romantics starry-eyed. The Series is still a bit too Disney-sanitized to have much intrinsic appeal for adults, but there are enough meta jokes to ensure that their eyes don’t glaze over.
It's a very meta, but mostly meh, homage. ... It's like Glee without very much glee. [11-24 Nov 2019, p.16]
