Wizards of Waverly Place cast a 'Fun' Spell
13 October 2007 | by kaiofheartsSee all my reviews

I must admit, after watching the commercials on Disney I was a bit reluctant to watch the show, but being a fan of the supernatural and the paranormal (ex: Charmed, Smallvile)i watched it.

Wizards of Waverly place had a good meaning to it, and should be taken lightly. This show is supposed to be fun, and - not to 'hard'. If you watch it don't get offended because its just a show.

This show was interesting, i wouldn't say its the best show i have ever seen, but trust me, i have seen worst.

It is a see but if you miss it don't worry! i bet there are a lot of repeats to come. It is a cute show and the actors are preatty good. 1 - 1/2 thumbs up.
