Melissa and Joey

Picture1

This show was a fantastic sit-com with two awesome 90’s teen stars: Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence.
The show was about Mel who recently took in her niece, Lennox, and nephew, Ryder, after their parents were put into jail for their illegal financial scheme that left people penniless.
Joey was one of those people. He went to confront Mel after he lost everything, including his wife, and since he hadn’t been completely cleared of his involvement, he was a piranha to all potential employers. So, he becomes her nanny to help her watch Lennox and Ryder; and to take care of the house out of desperation.
All sorts of comedic situations follow with the self-involved, wine-loving Mel and the egotistical, muscle-pumping Joey. Don’t get me wrong they are both absolutely lovable.
The chemistry between the two was great, as well as the other characters. It really showed well the awkward moments of living together with two spit fire personalities and the tug and pull of raising two teenagers.
The dynamic of the show was just so great. They really expressed well the awkwardness of situations and conversations that aren’t always simple to get through especially with two hormone–raging, sarcasm-flinging teenagers around.
I also really liked how they expressed that being an adult doesn’t necessarily mean you make good decisions or that situations teenagers go through are sometimes just as serious and problematic; and that sometimes they go hand-in-hand.

I decided to write reviews because every time I read a book (which is far less then it should be) or a good show (which is way more) I am just bursting with information that I want to relay to someone, anyone, because what I just saw or read was just so awesome. Please, enjoy! Disclaimer: I do not own nor am I associated with the related books, shows or movies or their consequent companies. This blog is for fun and information.
