Spotlight/Shoutout: Bridgit Mendler


Hello Wednesday,

I love the Disney Channel, and last Friday I caught the premiere of the show "Good Luck Charlie."

And the magic s/s of awesome sauce goes to the lead actress Bridgit Mendler.

She stars as the somewhat socially awkward teen, who is making a video diary for her baby sister, so she can learn from their mistakes in the future.

The show is not a super blend of strong comic elements, but it shows potential for a strong family show. It's going to be something that the sentimental comedy genre needs.

Bridgit has worked all over the place on the Disney channel, starring on "Wizards of Waverly Place," and "Jonas."

Also, she appeared in the KCA winning film "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel."

"Good Luck Charlie" airs at Sunday nights at 8:30 on Disney.

QATFYG: Are you a fan of sentimental comedies?

  1. So... I decided to watch "Good Luck Charlie." It was enjoyable. It did seem quite different from the D-channel's normal shows. Generally, the shows on that channel are completely child centered, but here there was mixing with the parents. The show gave me the feeling that it was a bit like Lizzy McGuire, if Lizzy McGuire were a live action comedy and slightly lower quality. I might continue watching the show.

    The only real down side I saw to the show was the sets were really fake. It was hard to watch, because they did not in the least bit seem real, and they were obviously trying to imitate real sets.

  2. Anon,
    i was not paying close enough attention to the sets on GLC, but the Disney world is notorious for having sets that are underfunded and they are obviously staged and fake, which damages the illusion.

    I guess one of the best is Sonny with a Chance, because the show is set on TV sets. But again, I have not payed the best attention.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
