Not that bad but very hard to get into

this show wasn't that bad but there were some things that bugged me, this show is a rip off of Jake Long: American Dragon Some Of the similarities are: 1. there parents had there generations skipped 2. both are Chinese-American 3. both have a talking dog with magical knowledge 4. They have the same initials Juniper Lee Jake Long 5. their grandparents are their mentors 6. both are celebrities in the magical world 7. both have a troublesome sibling that also has magical powers 8. they have awkward friends 9. their responsibility is destroying their lives this show also has many plot holes and makes no sense at times and just gets odd, Also this is an American cartoon but Juniper can frequently be heard speaking Chinese and guess what, in one episode someone sees juniper using her powers and the show gets canceled just LOL
