Eh?!!! NOT one of Nickelodeon's best
20 April 2004 | by YerkmanSee all my reviews

I really don't have much to say on this show, except for bad things. Im a veteran of Nickelodeon (SInce I was four maybe) and I have seen everything from Rugrats to SPongebob. This is definetly not one of Nickelodeons best shows. I remember Amanda Bynes from the original All That(the actually GOOD All That, not that new crap...)and she had great potential for being funny. But after I started to watch more of the show, I relised how she had gotten less, and less funny. The skits are horrible, so is the music, so is the direction, and jokes. Amanda only starts to get very annoying after a short while.

However there are a few redeeming things in The Amanda Show. The Actors are very talented, especially Drake Bell and Josh Peck. (They're 'Tony Pajama's and Paulie' Skit is hilarious. No wonder they got their own show). John Kassir, Nancy Sullivan, and even Dan Schnider (who makes his own appearances) are also talented actors, worth seeing.

But not even they can save something like the Amanda Show. Im very sorry cast of Amanda Show, but this is not worth a persons time to watch. This show does not appeal to the veterans, or the younger aged viewers of Nickelodeon. (Pardon the spelling errors if I made any)
