I wouldn't give a crap about this channel, but my sister watches it all the time and idolizes any star that appears on the screen, including some such as Hillary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, Raven Symone, Christy Carlson Romano, and lots of other preps whose pathetic excuses for "music" are no better than the shows they star in.
Disney is well known for using and reusing the same actors every time in new movies they come up with, which they do so almost every two months or so. This is called Disney Channel Star Syndrome, and the worst part is that at least one of the actors/actresses will sing the theme song for the movie, which is always gonna be another horrible pop song that no sane teenager in their right mind would want to hear for more than one second.
So, to sum it up, aside from the shows and movied aired on it, Disney Channel is the world's largest promoter of preppy pop music that's just annoying the hell out of me. Since when was being a prep cool anyway?
All they have on Disney Channel is their sluts acting like they care about their fans and the fans go like "OMG! DID YOU JUST HEAR ABOUT CECE JONES'S NEW SONG?!". Actually, this channel doesn't want to show that much commercials of other places. Instead, they mostly use THEIR commercials. All you see is commercials of their upcoming shows, their "This is Me" fillers, and their, um, shitty music videos. This channel has gotten so lazy, they aired a commercial having the year of 2010 in the middle of it. Their sitcoms, I mean decoms, are just movies that are made from the same sluts they use in their shows. Nearly every slut in the channel sings. Even their Shake it Up channels are horrible!! Girls are pretty much copying every single thing they do on Disney Channel. This channel is aimed towards 7-12 year old girls. If you're a boy and you're over 20, shame on YOU. The only reason I watch Disney Channel is because of Phineas and Ferb. That show is awesome.
The bad part is that this channel is filthy rich, so it will stay up for a pretty damn long time.
Me: Oh Lordy.
21st Century Kid: Have you been living under a rock? Miley Cyrus has a horrible haircut and is married to Liam Hemsworth, The Jo-Bros are all broke and married with only one song out (Pom Poms) which is only about girl's asses, and Demi Lovato has been in rehab for cutting. Seriously, how could you have missed all of this?
Late 90's Kid: C'mon, all Disney Channel stars can't be THAT bad. What about Vanessa Hudgens?
21st Century Kid: Got kicked off of Disney Channel for posting naked pictures online, and had sex with James Franco in Spring Breakers.
Late 90's Kid: So I guess that the Disney Channel really IS just a workshop where good kids go bad and bratty kids are glorified.
In reality, it is a trash heap filled with wasted potential and dumb stereotypes. Disney used to make wonderful animated classics like Aladdin, Toy Story, and Bug's Life. But now it contains a slew of unoriginal "comedies" with stereotypical characters and luagh-tracks every ten seconds to crap that is not funny at all.
Here's my proof:
*Expresses a phony high school enviroment so when the young viewers actually get there, they expect a G-Rated place, when it's anything but. (You also don't get to hang out of class for 20 minutes)
*Jokes are terrible
*Plots are all based around one thing: "normal" teenagers with a unique twist, (i.e. on a dance TV show, a pop star, WIZARDS)
*Also by some coincidence, all the actresses in real life become whores and drug addicts, (Miley Cyrus, Demi Lavato), and the actors all are faggots, (Joe Jonas, Phil Lewis), on the show and in the real world.
The only show that's good is Phineas & Ferb which is the only show that lasted longer than 4 seasons.
Person B: GOD NO!!!
Person C: How old are you?
Person A: 15
Person B and C: How have you made it in the real world?
It helps keep them grounded, and I believe that it is a good place to begin a career. The shows are unrealistic - but what's your point? If you want reality - stop wasting your time watching TV. Television is supposed to give a sense of escapism to the viewers, to somewhat take us into the life that is not real.
HANNAH MONTANA - Of course if you just put on a wig people will still know it's you, but this is for the purpose of entertainment people.
THAT'S SO RAVEN - She can't really see into the future, but who cares she's foolish and makes me giggle.
THE SUITE LIFE - Awesome show! That is so bias but I don't care. It is funny and has some very very nice eye-candy.
PHINEAS AND FERB - The stuff they do is not actually possible, but get over it!
Person 2: Yeah sometimes
Person 1: Those shows are unrealistic
Person 2: Get over it. I like it and you don't have to.
It appears to also be popular among women in their 20's and seem to relate to men, (or at least appear nicer to men) who also watch the channel or are versed in Disney. It makes them feel that that particular man is not an idot and can relate to innocence. (Kind at heart kind of stuff)
Why yes, I do
Really, I wouldn't have guessed that about you?
I thought you were a jerk.
