Instant Star Rocks!!
16 August 2005 | by BridgeHJ4See all my reviews

I love this how and unlike shows like: "That's so Raven", "The Amanda Show" or "Lizzie MaGuire" this show centers around a teenager's reality not a half hour sitcom trying hard to make us laugh and always fixing a problem in half-an-hour which is so totally unrealistic!!! Instant Star revolves around Jude Harrison her, family, friends and other important issues in her life and it ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This show is not hiding behind what people want us to think teenagers are like goody two shoes who just tap kiss in the halls not saying that, that is bad but this is a much more complicated world with much more complicated issues and I think thats why Instant Star is such a great show and can relate more to today's teens.

Watch the show I guarantee you'll love it!
