Sonny with a Chance: Sonny's Big Break Vol. 1

Four episodes of the latest smash-hit Disney Channel Original Series are now available on DVD. Meet Sonny (Camp Rock’s Demi Lovato), a talented Midwestern girl who relocates to Los Angeles to join the cast of the most popular sketch comedy show for teens and tweens, “So Random!” But life behind the scenes on a Hollywood set is not as idyllic as Sonny imagined, especially because of her fellow performers: the self absorbed Tawni (Tiffany Thornton), suave Nico (Brandon Mychal Smith), funnyman Grady (Doug Brochu), quirky Zora (Allisyn Ashley Arm) and dreamy Chad Dylan Cooper (Sterling Knight), star of the teen drama “Mackenzie Falls” that films in the adjacent studio, and his simmering rivalry with the cast of “So Random!” Sonny With A Chance: Sonny’s Big Break comes with bonus features as well as a bonus world premiere episode on the DVD!

Sonny with a Chance is a funny and smart program on The Disney Channel. The basis premise is a girl from the Midwest gets her big break on a teen sketch comedy show (called "So Random"...hilarious). Sonny wants to be friends with her new castmates and some of them aren't so sure. It actually reminds me of the dynamics at my workplace! Here's a clip of Sonny's first day.

Now how many of us haven't met someone like that at some point? I know I have!

Sonny is cute. She's bright. She's fun. And she's positive. There are so many negative role models for young girls these days that I am always thrilled to see a positive one. The cast is excellent, the storylines are fun, and it's something unique. This is a great series for the whole family to watch together.

Don't miss this one!

I am a closet lover of this show. Given some of the other choices for girls especially this one? Makes me terribly amused and I wouldn't fear my kidfolks seeing it!
