Nicklelodeon is one network that is known far and wide by people of all ages. If you are a child or have a child (or pre-teen), this is one channel that will commonly be rolling at home. With a vast range of shows geared toward this age range beneath their belt, Nick is the place to go for humor and fairly clean television viewing for the young and the young at heart.
One popular show is True Jackson VP. My nine-year-old daughter has been a fan of this show for a couple of years, since it began and was thrilled to have the True Jackson VP: Season 1, Volume 1 DVD in our viewing library. Now she is able to go back and recapture where things all began — over and over again.
In True Jackson, KeKe Palmer plays the role of True, a young teen girl who has an extreme love for fashion. When she receives the opportunity to become Vice President of a teen clothing line at Mad Style, a well-known fashion and clothing company line, she is blown away. A bit of a reach that such a thing would actually occur? Yes. A fun premise? Absolutely.
True Jackson VP: Season 1, Volume 1 consists of 2 DVDs complete with the first 13 episodes, cast screen tests, bloopers and behind-the-scene extras that add a fun touch to the overall viewing fun. A few of the great episodes include the pilot, “True Takes Iceland,” “Firing Lulu,” “Babysitting Dakota,” “Telling Amanda,” “True Matchmaker,” “ReTRUEnion,” “The Prototype,” “Ryan on Wheels,” “Red Carpet,” “The Rival,” “Keeping Tabs,” and “Fashion Week.”
Packed full of fun, mischief, humor, and unstoppable laughter, True Jackson VP: Season 1, Volume 1 is an excellent addition to a family DVD library, particularly for those with pre-teen, fashion loving girls. In addition to the excellent cast of KeKe Palmer, Ashley Argota and Greg Proops, there are some wonderful guest appearances by such people as Julie Bowen and Andy Richter.
The episodes and brand of humor used within this series is sure to be a hit for years to come, thus allowing the newcomers of pre-teens some great television viewing. It may not be overly educational, but it is great, clean fun for your kids and you to enjoy! My daughter and I enjoy a bit of together time when we pop this DVD in and that is a huge reason to have it in our DVD library!Powered by Sidelines
