A Diamond in a patch of coal
24 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

I would describe wizards of Waverly place, in a word refreshing. In the recent years I have strayed from the Disney channel due to the recent decline in quality and yet I find myself watching this with renewed enthusiasm for the network. The Humor is standard of a Disney channel show but thanks to the personality the actors are able to bring to the table it more then makes for it.I especially enjoy the work of Selena Gomez, the way she delivers her lines are far beyond those of say Raven-Symone and other Disney channel stars. I guess its taken Disney channel awhile to find a diamond in the patch of coal they call programming. In the words of the immortal bard..Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana "YA Think?!"
