Okay, so what went wrong? Nick used to have great shows, but since iCarly and Victorious were cancelled, with the exceptions of SpongeBob, The Fairly OddParents, and Nicky Ricky Dicky & Dawn, now they just show a lot of garbage.
But Bella and the Bulldogs is without a doubt the WORST, most annoying, pathetic, insulting, irritating, idiotic excuse for a TV show that Nickelodeon has ever made. If they manage to create a show that’s actually worse than this, it’ll be an accomplishment. Just the concept alone makes me want to punch things, but the acting is terrible, the characters are sexist, conceited idiots that all treat one another like trash, it isn’t funny yet the laugh track plays at EVERYTHING, and you know how I said I like Nicky Ricky Dicky & Dawn? Well, part of the reason for that is because it teaches that you can always work together with family. But I guess who needs that when we can have Bella and the Bulldogs, which just teaches that it’s okay to be rude to people and to treat your peers like trash. The boys on the football team, especially Troy, don’t need any explanation for why they’re sexist or treat their peers like trash because they always treat Bella like she doesn’t belong on their team. Now, you may think that I feel bad for Bella because of how terrible these boys are to her, but the truth is--she has problems of her own as a character. She’s a nag, a killjoy, a stupid idiot, and overreacts to everything done to her. Sophie was nice at first, but now she thinks she’s so perfect, and Pepper is just an idiot that freaks out over male hormones and whatnot. I don’t really like watching any of the football games. I’ve always hated this show. I’ve always hated those stories about a girl who is new to something and tries to adjust despite how hostile everyone else is to her, but at least when I see that concept done as a movie, there’s a lot more to work with. I don’t know how these actors even got hired. They look nothing like actual middle schoolers which is the age these characters are, they have no talent (though the girl who plays Pepper was good when she played Eileen Miller in the reptile club election episode of Jessie), and not trying to be shallow, but they’re not even good looking. In fact, the actress for Sophie is ugly. The most decent looking of the actors on this show is the actress for Bella, and she’s just average. There is absolutely nothing good, decent, or even redeeming about this show. Everything about it is just plain awful! This show is insulting and doesn’t deserve to be called a Nick show. In conclusion, this show is proof that (other than SpongeBob, The Fairly OddParents, and Nicky Ricky Dicky & Dawn) since iCarly and Victorious were cancelled, Nickelodeon has plainly and simply ruined what used to be a great channel, and it seems like they don’t even care. So everyone who enjoyed the old Nickelodeon and misses the days when it had good shows, pray for it. This show is proof that it really needs it.
