“That’s So Raven” is enjoying its second spin-off, “High School Musical” is making a comeback and reruns of 2000 era favorites have been introduced to today’s youth. What about my favorite youth sitcom Even Stevens?
Back in the 2000s, I was an avid Disney Channel viewer. I enjoyed “Phil of the Future”, “Lizzie McGuire”, “Cory in the House”, “The Replacements”, “Sonny With A Chance”, “Life With Derek” several DCOMs and more. However, I believed no series on that channel was more hilarious than Even Stevens. The main cast had the best on-screen chemistry! I missed it like crazy when it ended in 2003.
Since Hollywood’s new reboot trend is on fire right now, I’m hoping Disney considers bringing stars like Shia LaBeouf, Christy Carlson Romano, A.J. Truth, Margo Harshman, Ty Hodges more in an all new version of the show. “Raven’s Home” is proof that Disney Channel stars can return to their roots, while making a positive impact on the next generation.
Over the years, Shia LaBeouf may have branched out into film genres that are the opposite of Disney, but he’s always been a talented actor. I throughly enjoyed his performance on “Even Stevens”, “Tru Confessions”, “The Greatest Game Even Played”, “Transformers’s” series and Indiana Jones. I’ll admit he’s come a long way since then, however, it’s never too late to revisit your roots.
