Disney now and then
What ever happened to Even Stevens and those great shows that got cancelled? The quality of those shows were so much greater than what's running now. The acting and the camera quality has decreased exponentially. Recently, well actually currently, I have been watching Disney Channel. Some of the things I found terrible in quality:
A. The acting always seems to be "over-acted". As you know I am not a great actor however some of the teenagers and adults that are hired are some of the worst. They all speak in odd accents. Furthermore they all sound the same just different vocal ranges. The number one bad actor, Ashley Tidsdale in Highschool musical.
B. Stereotypes. They are EVERYWHERE in disney sitcoms and movies. There is always a blonde guy who is either stupid, an air head, plays guitaur, and all the girls think he's hot. Some of them are somewhat good looking however, Any use of the blonde stereotype is ANOYING and people really do follow what disney portrays their characters to be.
C. The stereotyping people of Arabic decent. Yes I must admit some of those words in arabic and farsi are funny to say or hear. In the show "Correy in the house" the girl that Correy likes is Asain or Middle Eastern, I thought cultural tollerence like in all young adult television broadcasts. As soon as that girl talked I thought that they were bashing arabic people. Honestly I don't think anyone talks like that.
D. Some of the shows have the essence of other television shows that are popular. Especially the shows that have dialogue spoken as if it is Gilmore girls.
Thank you for reading my "rant" about disney television broadcasting. And if you didn't, SIX DAYS!!!
