Season 1 and 2 = Good, Season 3+ = Not So Good

Before I go into details. I just say my rating has gone 5 to 3 because of the 2 new seasons. I liked the first 2 seasons. i thought it was relatable, creative and fun to watch. I think anyone can watch it. It is vey interesting and experimental on combining personalities and put them in the same family of same age. I think also it adds a good message. They all have problems and they solve it together in the end. It promotes teamwork. My favourite characters are Nicky and Ricky. I like Nicky's personality and Ricky's intelligence. It has gone all great until we get to Season 3. it is dull, boring, annoying and cringing. It's like scraping nail off a blackboard. They get rid of good characters who make the show exciting and bring pathetic reactions. Avery is one of the characters I despise. Really annoying.

An utter disappointment in programming... incompetent authority + immoral children role models

I watched this whilst babysitting. This show is full of lazy gags, discord and immorality in an effort to maintain a child attention. Presents stereotypes, bad behaviour and repercussions recklessness as the enviably mimic-able norm... I saw stealing, cheating and lying presented as options to get what you want with no consequence. This show displays nothing of human dignity or goodness... more often then not when good actions are displayed it is out of fear of shame
