Tonight, Disney Channel aired the sixth episode of it's much hyped show, Andi Mack.

Now that the first season is half over, we get a real sense of hwo the show is. Will it end up being a Lizzie McGuire like hit?

Andi Mack Episode 6 Recap

Tonight's episode of Andi Mack focused mostly on what we learned at the end of the last episode -- that Jonah Beck's girlfriend Amber was cheating on him.

For the first half of this episode, Andi was pondering whether she should tell Jonah about what she saw.

Eventually, Buffy convinced her to tell Jonah, and things went totally awry.

At first Jonah believed Andi, but then Amber convinced him that she was lying. And after Amber made a fool of Andi in front of Jonah, things just got worse.

At the end of the episode, we met Andi's father, Bowie, a long-haired surfer dude who seems exactly as you'd expect.

Andi Mack Mid-Season Review

So now that we're about half way through the season, how is the show? Is it the super hit that Disney is expecting?

The first thing we noticed is that the show is definitely well written. It's very much reminiscent of Gilmore Girls, especially with Bex as the Lauren Graham character. The characters are interesting, well developed, and edgy.

Especially well written are the Cyrus and Bex characters. On it's own, Cyrus' discovering his sexuality makes the show much more interesting than most Disney shows. And Bex's witty repartee is excellent.

But there are still weak points. Buffy is a terribly written and developed character.

Although the actor who plays Buffy does a pretty good job, she can't overcome the insurmountable effect of poor writing.

It's very difficult to believe that she's a great athlete, yet she hangs out with a bunch of misfits. And her encounters with Marty are overly adultified.
