I just got back from visiting family in Texas this morning. I went straight to work from the airport so it's been a long day! I spent the weekend with family including my youngest sister! She helped me get caught up on what's new on the Disney Channel! Here's some of the stuff we watched!
Good Luck Charlie- This is Disney Channel's newest television show that premiered recently on April 4th. It stars Bridgit Mendler who played a vampire named Juliet in the Wizards of Waverly Place series. It also stars Jason Dolley from the Disney Channel Original movies Hatching Pete and Minutemen. The show is about a family who recently had a new addition, baby Charlie. Each show ends with Mendler's character concluding a video diary that offers advice for Charlie. My favorite part of this show is that none of the kids are famous or have any special powers. They are just normal kids.
Sonny With A Chance- On it's second season, this is an amusing show that stars Camp Rock's Demi Lovato. She plays a girl from the Midwest who gets her big break when she is cast on a kids comedy sketch show called "So Random". (Anyone remember Nickelodeon's All That?). The show is about what goes on behind the scenes...it's kind of like 30 Rock for kids. The show is actually pretty funny and enjoyable! It's my favorite of the non-animated shows on Disney channel right now.
Wizards of Waverly Place- This show was an Emmy winner for Outstanding Children's Program last year. It is about a family who is like any other family except that the kids are wizards in training. The twist that I found interesting is that the siblings will have to compete against each other once they are adults in order to decide who will keep their magic powers and be the family wizard. This past weekend, my sister informed me that Shakira will be a guest star on Friday, April 16th's episode! I love Shakira!
Phineas and Ferb- This animated series is my favorite of the shows currently on Disney Channel. It is about two stepbrothers and their daily adventures. Each episode starts with Phineas saying "I know what we're going to do today!" Their older sister, Candace, is always trying to bust them and get them in trouble. Their pet platypus, Perry, is a secret agent fighting against the evil scientist Doofenshmirtz. The show is a lot of fun for the whole family to enjoy! My sister received her puppy last year while we were watching this show and she named him Phineas!
