"Wizards of Waverly Place" focuses on the Russos. A typical family, which includes a mom, Theresa Russo; a dad, Jerry Russo; a son, Justin Russo; a daughter, Alex Russo; and another son, Max Russo. The kids and the family live normal lives but what their friends don't know is the kids are wizards in training and the dad was a former wizard! Written by

Before I start, I just have to say that I am not a big fan of the Disney Channel. I don't watch it for the most part. However, I was channel surfing one day and stumbled on this show. I thought, "Well, I've never seen this before. Maybe it won't be as bad as some of the other stuff on here." I have to say that I was right! This show is appealing for the "tweenage" population but also for people in other age groups (myself included). "Wizards" is also pretty funny (albeit some of the humor is a bit cheesy, I have to admit that it still gets a chuckle out of me!). Selena Gomez is definitely another rising star. I had never even heard of her before this show, but now I count myself as one of her fans. Jake T. Austin is simply adorable, and David Henrie is pretty cute ;) I think that viewers of most ages will probably enjoy this show (if they can stand some overplayed gags and corny jokes). Personally, I think it's a lot better than anything else they show on that channel, so if you're like myself and think that everything on Disney Channel is stupid and little-kiddish, I recommend that you check this show out - maybe it will change your opinion. It did mine!
