This is the second DVD release of the hit Disney Channel show The Wizards of Waverly Place. The shows are actually very entertaining, but I continue to renew my objection to the fact that Disney only puts four episodes on a disc, rather than releasing an entire season. They do this with all of their live-action shows (Hannah Montana (although a first season set was recently released), The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, etc.) but it's still very annoying and not very cost-effective in this day of watching where your pennies go. That said, my eight-year-old daughter is a huge Wizards of Waverly Place fan. She watches the episodes over and over, so it doesn't really bother her that there are only four of them.

The premise of the show: Father Jerry (David DeLuise) gave up his wizard powers to marry Theresa (Maria Canals-Barrera), a mortal. They have three children: the oldest is Justin (David Henrie), middle child is Alex (Selena Gomez), and the youngest is Max (Jake T. Austin). At some point in the future, only one of the three siblings will be allowed to continue practicing magic, but right now, they take wizard lessons and get into all sorts of trouble with their magic powers every day.

This show definitely appeals to the tween set, particularly girls, but boys may find some of the magic antics enjoyable as well. The acting is decent by the adults and child actors, and viewers will find themselves wishing that it was possible to have the fun magic powers these kids have-from pants that make the wearer smarter to a magical diary and more.
