Wizards Of Waverly Place is a cute new Disney series that involves 3 sibling's, all whom have magical wizard powers. In my opinion the show has been so far very cute modern day Sabrina the Teenage Witch- only it involves 4 wizards, Alex, Justin, and Max.
One of the most recent episodes I was able to catch this week on Disney was Episode 5, of Season 1; Disenchanted Evening.
In this particular episode Alex (the up and coming teen star Selena
Gomez), discovers that another boy named TJ who is in her school is a
wizard. When she catches him doing magic right out in the open at school
she is intrigued, and wonders why his parents allow him to use magic
whenever he wants, while hers does not allow her to do any magic unless
it is during lessons.
TJ tells her that his parents let him do spells whenever he wants, and
they never punish him for doing so. He then tells her that he can get
her parents to think the same way if her parents met his parents.
Once at the home, TJ tells Alex his secret, that he has his parents
under a charm, and this is why they let him do whatever he wants. Alex
without barely any hesitation tells TJ to charm her parents as well.
TJ feeds them his magical charm cake/pie, and immediately Alex's
parents are charmed, and now Alex, Max and Justin have the freedom to do
whatever they want, whenever they want now that their parents let them
do whatever they wish.
As with any show made for children, there is always a lesson to be
learned when one breaks the rules. It does not take long for the
children to land themselves into trouble, and when they need their
parents help, they are still under the charm and do not assist in
helping the kids.
Justin who is the older wizard in the bunch tries to discover a remedy to get rid of the charm his parents are under.
Without ruining the show, I will say that this particular episode
(like every episode I have seen so far) was really cute, with comedy and
flair; plus a lesson to be learned at the end.
Wizards Of Waverly Place in my opinion is a great series for young
children, older children, teens, and adults alike. The series is easy to
fall in love with, as are the characters.
This episode easily gets 9 stars out of 10 from me.
