Those are fair points. To me GLC feels very much like "Step By Step" or "Family Matters". All of those shows are family comedies which is exactly what "Jessie" is. Debby definitely did carry the first episode and as the star of the show that's basically her job. Personally, I think she did a fantastic job too.
What surprised me the most was how well Debby handled all of the physical comedy. There was lots of physical comedy in SLOD but it was mostly the adults that performed it, especially Phill Lewis, Erin Cardillo and Wendell D. Middlebrooks (who played "Kirby" the security guard). From what I see so far I think Debby is doing an excellent job with it.
This is one area that the cast of Wizards really excelled with because they had David Deluise. His father, the late great Dom Deluise pretty much wrote the book on physical comedy. Dom Deluise was a legendary comedian. I've heard several interviews with Selena who said everything she learned about physical comedy came from David Deluise. It's a skill that needs to be learned and it's not easy but I think Debby is doing fantastic so far.
We're going to have to agree to disagree because I'm not even going to attempt to argue that point further. In my opinion "Jessie" is NOTHING like "A.N.T. Farm".
