Yes, but is there anything I DIDN'T already know?

Disney Channel has been so over-saturated with Jonas Brothers paraphernalia that this is hardly anything new or particularly fun; the boys are not good actors (I don't care for their singing, either), and no matter how charming their sincerity is, it just. Isn't. Interesting.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (10 ):

This reality series will appeal to fans' curiosity with its coveted behind-the-scenes glimpse at the pop stars' lives, and there's no reason for parents to fret over their tweens tuning in. These brothers are known for being all-around nice guys, and the show is as squeaky-clean as they are. At nearly every turn, the rockers demonstrate that their success is built on a foundation of strong family ties (they often credit their parents for keeping them grounded), education, healthy lifestyles, and civic mindedness.

It's unavoidable that the series will serve as a marketing tool for Jonas Brothers merchandise and music, and the talented siblings are sure to win over plenty of new fans with their charm and charisma (those shaggy locks don't hurt, either). But it's clear that the show's intent is to entertain fans, which it does in a surprisingly feel-good, non-commercialized way.
