That’s so raven is a sitcom about Raven Baxter, played by Raven Symone. She is a teenage girl who can glimpse into the future that often gets her into trouble. It appeared on Disney Channel January 17, 2003 and ended November 10, 2007. The set is filmed in San Francisco.
In 2005, the series was nominated for outstanding children program. her friends Eddie (Orlando Brownn) and Chelsea (Anneliese van der Poll), her family members; mother Tanya Baxter (T’Keyah Crystal Keymma) father (Rondell Sheridan) and brother Cory (Kyle Massey) which is a second main character.
Raven draws on her talent as a fashion designer. She uses her physic powers and a number of disguises to get out of situations but it always seems to get worse. Raven’s visions of the future usually lead to unpredictable chain of events. She is energetic and she expresses herself in an amusing manner. She always seems to be running in and out of trouble – and then learning a valuable lesson.
Kids would have loved to watch this show; it was also entertaining for adults. My favorite episode is called “Blue in the Face”. Devon asked Raven to the Blue Rain Concert, but her bad grades kept her from going. Meanwhile, Cory wants to hangout with “cool girl” Who makes fun of William’s clothes.
Victor becomes obsessed with his new paper shredder. William (Cory’s best friend) helps Raven with her science project to bring her grade up; but she forgot to help Cory. Cory got upset at Raven and the boys and shredded the formula for Raven’s project.
It took Raven all night to take the shredded formula and puts it all back together. She went to school to present her science project. It was hard for her to read the formula because she put the shredded paper together wrong; meanwhile, her dad walked in the classroom with another copy of the formula.
Raven was mixing the chemicals, her dad walked in and her project blew up and causes her and her dad’s face to turn blue that was able to wash off until 2 days. That night Devon tells raven since she cannot go to the concert he will bring it to her.
He was outside of her window with the radio playing the song at the concert with her blue face. It was very cute. My favorite episode is the ones with Devon on them. I wish the show would come back on.
