    Tasha, Leo's mum, had so much patience. If I discovered that my new husband kept three bionic teenagers in his basement, I'd be out of there in a flash. She's an unsung queen.

    Shows like this and Pair of Kings make me wish there were more action sitcoms. It's an interesting idea to put characters into funny situations, but also to have those funny situations actually have stakes and impact the characters

      @Miana Fernandesthe first couple seasons were; then Mitchel Musso got a DUI, they shoehorned his character to exit the show, they shoehorned the brothers of the show to be triplets instead of twins, & Adam Hicks was far different than Mitchel Musso's dynamic. writing characters out suddenly was jarring but I guess the show didn't care

    Lab Rats had surprisingly deep themes. Me and my siblings loved watching it together. But we all agree, after they revealed themselves to the world, the show didn’t know how to keep it interesting.

    The plot of this story is actually very intricate.
    (Spoiler if you haven't watched this show from 2012)
    Sometime in the middle of the show it's revealed that Donald has a younger brother, Douglas, who is actually the one who's responsible for Adam Bree and Chase. Essentially Davenport was a joint project that specialized in bionics that would allow robots to do jobs humans couldn't, but Douglas took the technology and implemented it into the genetically engineered kids and was planning to sell them. Donald in response to this took Adam Bree and Chase and decided to train them to help people, and keeps them in the basement in hopes that Douglas won't find them.
    There's also another plot where a guy named "Victor Crane" who Douglas was definitely dating at some point but it's 2012 so they're too afraid to admit it genetically engineers a thousand more bionic kids to try and enslave the world. And he comes back at the end of the series with another guy and tried to put bionics into Donalds space colonists after blowing up the world with a nuke.

      I remember Leo gets his arm stuck under rubble when attacked by Victor and Douglas outfits him with a bionic enhancement. Leo was bummed out bcuz at first it didn't have any weapons and Douglas eventually relents.
      Also Big Bro Tyler James Williams stars as Future Leo in the time travel episode.

    I like this show and a lot of the characters, but I hate how no one ever gets comeuppance for the vast amount of abuse. There's a lot the first episode doesn't even begin to cover, like how Chase is basically the scapegoat of the family and is always expected to be the bigger person despite Adam using him as his personal punching bag.

      I mean it is a children's show so I don't think the creators or actors deeped it that much. It's played for laughs and brothers teasing/fighting. And in the later seasons Chase stands up for himself and fights back, especially as Spike

    Lab Rats was goofy, but it had probably the deepest core of a cast of any Disney show. I mean there was just no one unlikeable. I loved Leo, I loved the trio of Bree Adam and Chase, I loved Principal Perry, Douglas, Big D, I liked every character.

      I mean her whole personality changed literally all the time (the writers really didn't know what to do with her) so it's kinda hard to get any kind of solid read on her character

      The writers didn't know what to do with Bree. It wasn't the actresses fault but they mostly threw her in as 'girl' where as Leo, Chase, and Adam were written with personalities that weren't just a gender. Whatever they thought was a funny girl plotline was assigned to Bree.

  • Donovan
    Donovan Před 6 měsíci +33

    I’ve discussed it before, but Lab Rats has remained one of my favorite Disney TV sitcoms for a while because the humor was actually not that bad. Hal Sparks (actor for Donald) definitely carried most of the comedy, and I just had an affinity for all the technological concepts presented, even if most of them were referencing concepts introduced in other shows/franchises. Brief spoilers for Elite Force below if you actually wanna watch it, but chances are the taste may be bitter.
    It disappoints me what Elite Force was in terms of basically ignoring most of what made Mighty Med, well, Mighty Med. Nowadays, I give the exclusion of Leo and Adam a pass since Jackson Williams and Spencer Boldman - their respective actors - were undergoing physical problems from their work; so yeah, still sad, but completely understandable - health comes first. But I don’t think the creators did their homework, and given how Lab Rats and Mighty Med have crossed over before WHILE MAINTAINING MIGHTY MED’S CONTINUITY, it’s baffling how the success and knowledge of THAT crossover special didn’t carry over to the idea of a full crossover series. And don’t get me wrong, the middling ratings of Elite Force because of those problems (and the fact not many had access to Disney XD) kinda add up as to why it ended on a complete cliffhanger, but despite the poor effort, they were clearly building up to something a _little_ worth our time - they might as well have finished it. As a kid, I kept checking my guide constantly wondering when it would happen. And after like two years of waiting, probably speculating that maybe they’re making the finale a big movie-type deal, I find it was canceled. The concept was already there from the crossover special they did, it could’ve been something monumental. If I had to defend it in one aspect, if you ignore some of the CGI used in it, the theme song slaps.

    • Christopher Merrill
      Christopher Merrill Před 3 měsíci +2

      The reason it failed was because it was too much like Lab Rats and they had ruined most of the characters from Mighty Med as well. Plus some of the actors acting issues were glaringly obvious without some of the others to cover it up. Also, while mighty med was a good show they didn’t really do anything interesting with its concept and it fell flat for some parts of the show

  • Captain Phoenix
    Captain Phoenix Před 6 měsíci +14

    I will admit, while not as perfect as kid me remembers it, this show was still hella funny and it does get better as it goes along.
    In the last two seasons, there are these two characters who become a lot more prominent (I'm not gonna name them cause spoilers) but they become some of my favourites in the entire show, they're so goddamn hilarious.
    The show also does get a bit more mature, In the final season, they're on an island and they need to learn things like responsibility and growing up. It's really cool stuff *they also do some really dumb stuff but don't worry about that right now)
    If it's any consolation to you not being a fan of the series, they get rid of the wise cracking AI bot like 2 seasons in.

      It’s funny because in middle school (mid 2010s) Lab Rats was way more popular with girls than boys lol. I’m a girl and loved the show back then. Also in elementary school I loved Disney channel but in middle school I loved Disney XD, I thought Disney Channel was for kids and Disney XD for tweens and younger teens, sorta like Disney’s version of teen Nick or something.

      The show actually tackled serious moments really well too.
      Spoilers: When Leo accidentally blinded the girl and then quit because of it, or the kids finding out Davenport wasn’t their real dad. The show had some really good dramatic beats and knew exactly how to execute them. I wish it went on a little longer, especially the bionic island episodes, but at least it didn’t overstay its welcome.

      I really liked it. A lot of shows are like this though when you rewatch them, but that's because they're made for kids. Kids don't usually notice the weird things, and if it wasn't at least a little bit off, it might not have appealed to younger senses of humor as much. Davenport's explanation of the kids could have used some work, as well as they could have also had real rooms and stuff in the basement from the start.

    Honestly i grew up with this show so there is prolly some nostalgia here,but i think this is one of the best shows you can watch as a kid or even as a teen really. Yes,it can be goofy at times,but then there are some AMAZING episodes like the one where the whole crew went on against a bionic army or the one where they had to face Marcus. Really amazing show imo and i really recommend you watch the Bionic Army episode as well as the Marcus episode,just so you can see how the show progressed

So I started watching this show around the time I were 10 or 11 so I were going through my whole boy crazy phase and I had the biggest crush on Adam, but as time went on I hated how he would treat Chase so it kinda stopped just in time for me to start crushing on Chase cause Spike had always been my favorite character…so I now realize I kinda have a thing for nerds and it’s probably his fault.

    Was I the only one who was laughing when he said “He has these 3 children living in his basement. So he probably either made them or took them from somewhere” because I remembered Donald literally stole the children from his brother 💀🤣

    i seriously forgot about this show. but seriously, as an 8 year old, this show was literally my favorite. yeah the writings horrible, the jokes are cheesy, but as an 8 year old who doesn’t understand anything or care this was such a good show. seriously i gotta rewatch this.

    Prior to the explanation of the kids' existence and honestly even still afterwards, I picture it as they invented some way to grow the human children in an artificial womb with donor sperm and eggs, but then it's as if Douglas is their dad, so I think they were actually his kids but maybe donor eggs and I still picture it with an artificial womb...they could totally have given them a mom later. I thought maybe it'd be Giselle or something lmao since she was their dad's ex, but who knows. Either way, I never saw it as the dad having like...slave children lmao. Davenport sucked though how he was going to ship them off like he doesn't care about them at all. It's screwed up. Also Davenport was a terrible dad to Chase especially like he just let this poor kid who was the most like him on top of it all get abused by his super strong brother for his whole life...Douglas was a much better dad to him tbh he actually loved Chase and tried to help him protect himself from his abusive brother. It was always played off as a joke that Adam would literally assault and bully his brother constantly (Bree and sometimes Leo made fun of him too, and he made fun of them as well, but Adam was the only one that was truly awful to one of them) and that always pissed me off.
    Also, dudes, CHASE DAVENPORT HAD A CHILD WHEN THIS SHOW CAME OUT. LOOK AT HIM! Yeah, he had a kid at like 15 and so by the time this show came out, he'd already had a baby. He and the mom are still together and have a second kid now I think.

    Lab rats is a concept that deserves better then what diseny sitcom could offer but at the same time it's those limitations that add to it's charm

      Lab Rats could have made an awesome dark kids action cartoon. The whole concept sounds like something that shouldn’t be some slapstick sitcom.

    • CyberJawa1986
      CyberJawa1986 Před 3 měsíci

      @Danieru gyaragā they tried with Aaron Stone a couple of years prior. Iirc, a reason that was cancelled after season 2 was it was a bit too dark for DXD.

    Lab Rats was my early teen-hood and it was an awesome show for the time. Re-watched it with my nieces and my nephew during COVID and was nostalgic watching them get really into the bionics the same way I did. Glad you did a video on it.

    I can't even tell you how many times I rewatched this entire show. In fact I remember there was a short time where my family was like marginally short on money and we had to cancel one of our cable packages, the only channel in that package that any of us watched was Disney XD. And this was right after that lab rats season 2 finale cliffhanger and I was so frickin upset

      the story was good up until S4, after the Victor crane saga, the show grinded to a slow and painful ending (although tbf I did like Giselle)

    This show, Pair of Kings and I'm in the Band were some of the best Disney shows ever in my opinion. Even my parents liked them and watched them with me. Which they never did with other shows like Hannah Montana, Wizards or Zack & Cody.

    I've recently rewatched Lab Rats for beginning to end & I am here to tell you that not only is Lab Rats one of my favorite TV Shows from my childhood, not only is Lab Rats one of my favorite TV Shows of All Time, but Lab Rats is easily the best Sitcom that I've seen since Boy Meets World, & is easily the best TV Show to air on either Disney Channel & Disney XD since Gargoyles.
    Lab Rats' first 2 season were great to decent, but Season 3 was phenomenal & Season 4 is easily the best season of any Disney Sitcom of All Time!
    The 2 best & standout characters from Lab Rats are easily Adam & Bree Davenport.
    1. Adam Davenport is one of the most hilarious characters that I've ever seen in a TV Show & it helps that he was perfected casted. Spencer Boldman was on fire with both his line delivery & comedic timing. It's to the point that I'm surprised that he hasn't gone on to become a great comedic actor in his career.
    2. Bree Davenport is the Undisputed ACE of Lab Rats. Also, this show would eventually lead one of the greatest love stories of all time, me & Kelli Berglund😍🥰💖, a love story that didn't begin until I saw her as Crystal Tyler in Heels.

    Even though I was way too old to be the intended audience for this show, I genuinely liked it. Shows like this can’t be scrutinized too closely without turning into a Everything Wrong With post but this and a couple of other shows were fun to watch. Weird and funny, of course, but they actually had heart.

    I was OBSESSED with this show like Omg! I think younger me loved the family aspect with Adam, Bree, Chase, Leo and Mr Davenport- with the whole being faced with choices that test their relationships and they choose each other over and over again. Also it was a cool concept in general and I actually loved the humour- like PRINCIPAL PERRY and her comedic timing and dialogue and character was just 10/10. Some jokes I agree are cringey but to me it’s part of its charm. I grew up watching it though as it was being released so I think nostalgia plays into this for me

    Genuine thanks for making me remember Lab Rats existed (I once stumbled upon Elite Force in Netflix and watched it for a while, but it's been years since then and I never even knew that it was only a spin-off to begin with). Today I finished binge-watching all the 4 seasons, along with Mighty Med's 2 and Lab Rats: Elite Force again, and I had a BLAST! I laughed more than I thought I would and some of its emotional moments really stung (for a Disney show).
    Tbh, I think Lab Rats and Mighty Med (but especially the first one) just became some of my favorite sitcoms ever. They also made me aware of all these other Disney shows that I watched so long ago that I don't really remember them anymore, so I think I'm boutta go on a sitcom-frenzy for the next few weeks...

    I just started rewatching this show and I have MANY thoughts but the one thing that will always bug me is that they didn't explain how the lab rats came to be. Do they have a mother? Douglas created them in a lab but how??

      The Dawn of Vanlife Před 6 měsíci +33

      The implication is they are completely lab created.If there is mother or mothers, it either a donation of an egg or genetic material. It's a Disney XD show, this is a man who can create perfect human robot replicas overnight. It's not realism. 😅

    • Oghenemine Aganbi

      They were adopted, so whoever their mother is is unknown. Davenport's brother found them as babies and gave them the bionic chips, hoping to turn them into weapons. Davenport stole the babies and raised them as superheroes.

    • Divine Langene
      Divine Langene Před 5 měsíci +3

      @Oghenemine Aganbi no they weren't adopted, he made them in test tubes, probably got some kind of egg donor or something, they said it in season 4, plus they said he "created them"

    It's an excellent show. Honestly, we can't judge it too badly. It's a huge, huge concept that had to be shrunk down small enough in order to be a comedy show broken into 20-minute episodes on Disney XD. Sure, the humor may be weird, but this is still a show for preteens. I'm almost 20 and I still think it's hilarious despite some of the humor being juvenile. And Eddie is absolutely hilarious lol
