» » Every Witch Way

Short summary

When Emma and her single father move to a new town, she thinks all she'll have to deal with is making new friends - until she starts developing strange powers and discovers she's part of a magical world, full of witches, Guardians and Kanays. Soon, she's trying to master her power, before spoiled, bad witch Maddie steals them. To make matters worse, she falls hard and fast for Daniel, the school's swim team champion and Maddie's boyfriend. Over time Emma learns to control her powers and finds out that she is the Chosen One (the most powerful witch ever born). In addition, she discovers that the school's evil principal wants to steal the Chosen One's powers. Emma must stop her and keep her powers hidden from a skeptical Daniel, who hates magic. Everything comes to a head during the big school dance, when the Principal holds Daniel hostage and the two young witches must work together to defeat her.

This show is based on a popular Latino show called Grachi.

There is a spin-off series called W.I.T.S. Academy

The actor who played Julio in Season 1, also played a character in the Latin Nickelodeon show Grachi.

Emma Alonso, Every Witch Way's main protagonist, is a witch aka The Chosen One. Paola Andino, her portrayer, confirmed that if she was a real witch she would teletransport to the ocean's depths and outer space, the two places that fascinate her the most.

Liam Obergfoll portrayed Andi's zombie boyfriend, Philip in Seasons 2 & 3, but his character didn't return in Season 4 due to the actor portraying Tyson Fuccinelli on Talia in the Kitchen (2015).

In Season 4, Emma and Mia will be friends instead of enemies, Emma and Jax will be dating, and Daniel will hang out with Mia more to make Emma jealous. Also, if no one has seen the final scene in the final episode of Season 3, Emma chose to be with Jax.

In season 4 nobody remembers Daniel because Emma chose Jax.

Daniel gets his memory back untill the time he met Emma

for some reason the character Mia was in a few episodes in season 4 and is no longer used as a main character

    Were the producers and creators high when they made this show? Seriously, where do I begin? The lighting is horrible, the jokes are forced, the plot is really boring, repetitive and cliché, and the actors are just plain dumb. This show just CONFIRMS how much Nickelodeon is hitting rock bottom. Blonde preppy mean girl? CHECK. Main girl who is oh-so nice? CHECK. Love interest of main girl who used to be the mean girl's boyfriend? CHECK. If I could give this show zero stars, believe me, I would. Because, honestly, I don't even think that this show deserves one star. I mean, I get that I'm not really the target audience(I'm 13), but I still think it's horrible. If you are ages 6-12 you will probably like this show. If you're any older, don't waste your time and energy. Seriously, this show makes me wanna gouge my own eyeballs out.

    Some shows are so bad they are funny. Some are so bad they wind up being somehow kind of good and some are so bad they are just BAD. This one is just BAD. The acting is TERRIBLE. The premise is stupid. It is as if this is a really bad high school project at some backwater school.

    It came on after something else and I actually took notice because it was SOOOOO bad.

    This is not even a "don't waste your time", this is a "OMG, don't even think about unless you want to cringe"

    What was Nickelodeon thinking!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!

    Honestly...the first few seconds I watched of this show were so horrible, and the acting was so mediocre...I couldn't stand it. Don't waste your time watching. I would rather watch reruns of Barney, than watch this show. I'm not sure what's been going on with Nickelodeon lately, but the shows they've been producing haven't been good. Honestly...the acting is worse than Hannah Montana...well...maybe I should just say,they're TIED. And some of the special effects, in my opinion, are very, amateur. All together, aside from the bad acting, the show just seems VERY low budget and I can't see it making many more episodes. DON'T BOTHER WATCHING! IT'S NOT WORTH YOUR TIME!!!

    Well this is possibly the worst show I have ever seen and I've been forced to watch international soap operas. The acting is possibly the worst i have ever experienced and its obvious that the actors have little to no previous experience. The plot-line is predictable and dramatically over exaggerated. The fake accent of the lead actor is just irritating and honestly insulting. The camera work is shaky and looks like it was filmed by a twelve year old with a camcorder. Its all bad angles and fake lighting. A middle school video project would be much better. Don't waste your time. Sesame Street entertains me more than this.

    This has to be the worst show Nickelodeon has come up with yet. They must be going through slump since the end of iCarly, Victorious, and Sam and Cat, which are considerably good shows (minus the later, Sam and Cat was a sad attempt to keep a good thing going when it was time for it to end). This show has to be the WORST show on television right now.

    Spoilers Ahead!

    Its the story of a girl who suddenly *realizes* she's becoming a witch and, hold on to your pants, the strongest witch ever. Oh, and she is your average picked-on new girl at school. Beyond predictable. The most popular girl in school happens to be a spoiled, rich witch who has a very wishy washy boyfriend that chose to leave her for the newest girl on campus. (Oldest romance formula in the book with some poorly thought through witch story line thrown on top)This snobby rich girl can somehow steal the powers of the strongest witch ever and tries to often(how can you steal her powers if she is the strongest? Why doesn't she just stay away from snobby girl or show her who's boss and be done with it? Story line needs work). Snobby rich girl notices and instantly hates new girl because her boyfriend left her and she's jealous of her. Lame arguments ensue.

    It's like a sad mixture of Sabrina with Wizards of Waverly Place, but with cringe worthy scripts, no comedy whatsoever, terrible music, amateur camera crews, and even worse acting by literally every actor on set. This show is the biggest waste of air time ever created and only cements the death of Nickelodeon. You can only do so many Spongebob reruns before you run yourself into debt, Nick. I watched this junk for 30 whole minutes and wished I had every second back.

    In my opinion, this show is just an awful copy of Wizards of Waverly Place. The acting is horrible, the special effects are so obviously fake, and the whole plot is unoriginal.

    I have seen a lot of bad shows before, but this is literally the worst show I have ever seen. Everything about it is horrible.

    I have only seen one or two episodes of Every Witch Way, and I felt like if it were not so quiet throughout the show, then maybe I might like it a little, but it was super annoying to even just sit there and watch the show.

    So, overall, I would recommend you not watch this show unless you are a really young kid.. it is just not entertaining to me at all but it might be to a small child.

    This is actually the worst television show I have ever watched, and trust me I have seen some bad ones. But, this one takes the cake. Let's just take the show to it's very core: the idea behind it. The idea of the show being that there are all these witches in a school, one of them the stereotypical "popular" brat and the other one your "normal relatable girl". All they do in the show is fight and do absolute crazy things that make no sense whatsoever. It is just a bunch of poor actors whining on a screen. The writing might just be the most atrocious writing in the history of awful writers. The dialogue is very choppy and often times makes no sense to what the actors (if you can even call them that) are doing on screen. Not to mention bad writing is the possibly most awful part of "Every Witch Way"- the NUMEROUS clichés. As I stated earlier we have the cliché popular, mean, blonde girl and her loyal possy of mindless morons doing whatever she says because she is popular. To summarize "Every Witch Way" I would have to say is an awful remake of "Mean Girls" but with magic.

    Everybody by now should know that nickelodeon is pretty much going down

    the drain. This show isn't as bad as the other new shows but it still definitely has its issues. For one it has really poor video filming

    quality. So you could probably guess this show is very cheaply made.

    Because of this the shows special affects are really bad and cheesy. But the worst part of the show is its actors, First off they are

    way over dramatic so they are not very likable characters but they are also just bad in general if you want a cheaply made

    over dramatic show that's mildly entertaining this is your show. In my opinion this show is just plain out fake making it not very likable.

    This show is awful. It looks cheap and the acting is terrible. It looks like it was filmed on a very low budget. I don't think it would be a bad show if the film quality were better as well as the actors. It almost seems as if the show was thrown together to fill an open slot. I would love to see this show in better quality. It's a shame to see this type of show on Nickelodeon while great shows with great acting are being canceled for ridiculous reasons. I hope that Nickelodeon plans on stepping it up before they lose viewers to other networks. I don't normally write reviews on TV shows, especially negative reviews, but I felt strongly that this warrants one.

    I saw the show way back in January where it was a full month of new episodes of Every Witch Way. I wasn't impressed, it had horrible acting and it's something I would never watch, I watched bits and pieces of it, but still I'm not impressed. I'm guessing all of Disney and Nickelodeon shows are by far gone down hill. No shows appeal to me, I'm pretty much going to say that Nickelodeon and Disney are dead dropped and have no ideas. Every Witch Way is just based on Wizards of Waverly Place, that is the magic though, not the whole show concept. Hopefully good shows will come back on. I really wish the old Nickelodeon and Disney shows would come back.

    I was looking forward to this show because I wanted to see what it's all about. I googled it and apparently it's supposed to be an English version of the Latin-American show "Grachi" which premiers in the Latin America region. The theme song was super catchy so I was curious to see how the show itself is. As soon as the first episode started I could not stand it. The acting is so terrible, I would rather watch an hour of grass growing. The camera is so weird, I don't know if it's a new thing or whatever it is. It just feels so weird, you need to see it yourself. The dramatic reactions make me cringe so much. It's not worth your time. 1/10.

    I tried not to be mean since I am aware that this show isn't for me. I am not the target audience of this show (I'm 21) and that this tends to be targeted towards kids.

    Now, my cousin likes this show but then again, he's only 6 so it is understandable.

    Before the pilot came out, I KNEW that this show is going to be stupid. Blonde, preppy, mean girl? CHECK. Main protagonist who is oh-so-nice? CHECK. Love interest of main character who used to be the mean girl's boyfriend? CHECK. This show is uncreative and it's too cliché.

    Plus, the graphics are just horrible. It looks cheap.

    The acting sucks and it felt forced. The blonde girl is just trying too hard.

    If you're around ages 6-12, then this show might be for you. If you're older? Please, don't bother with this show. It is not worth the time and the energy.

    It is was terrible. I'm just sitting here like when is this show going off air. Me and my friends were discussing it in a conversation and they ALL agreed it was horrific. The acting. The quality. And I'm sorry but damn what going on with the camera man. Then I realized its just another Wizards Of Waverly Place. But that show at least they good. I'm 14, and if this show is younger kids, that's terrible too. Boyfriends and kissing and stuff. Like seriously, we already have enough teen parents in the world we don't need more. Everybody was trying too hard, even the adults were terrible. The lighting. I could go on. I feel like nick is doing worse and worse. I am literally obsessed with TV for years. And this is literally the worst show ever.

    The pretty multi-cultral ads for "Every Witch Way" are put into sharp contrast with the shows content within the first 5 Minutes of the first episode. Nickelodeon once heralded as the model for cross-cultural education with programs like Dora the Explorer and Diego has decided to brand all Caucasian Americans and African Americans as Villains in its new tween Dramedy "Every Witch Way".

    Nick rebirths the 90's sitcom formula that vilifies "White" people, only this time targeting the developing minds of our children. Structured from its telenovela roots, "Every Witch Way" was developed for North America. Unlike the original series "Grachi" released on NICK Latin America whose cast is culturally homogenous, the north American version recasts all of the antagonists cast as Caucasian, African and Asian Americans.

    It is unclear if the Executives at Nickelodeon consciously chose to develop the show with this racial slant or if they are just asleep at the wheel. Assigning a writer with her cultural blinders on is irresponsible.

    I was watching TV with my little cousin and discovered this great show! It features witches, but good witches; witches that don't cause trouble and curses on innocent people and pretend to be smart. It's great how they feature multiple ethnicities and how everyone gets along without worrying about labels like "black" and "white". The episodic nature of this show and the origin definitely makes for a good show for the whole family, preferably a structured one. It's recommended to get acquainted with shows like this because they express diversity in a non-uniform way; it teaches kids that what matters is what's on the inside, and growing up seeing good witches will help the kids determine and spot the bad ones in life. Too long; didn't read: Give it a shot and be open-minded.

    When I first saw this show I thought it was bad. Then I kept watching and it just got better. Though the quality is okay and same with the acting, I still love it. I look forward to it everyday. It is very cheesy but sometimes you need a little cheese in your life. I think I love it because it is so cheesy, I do love the plot line too. Some of the acting is really bad but there are some good actors too. The show is very funny and my favorite character is Jax. The first season was okay but the second was even better. I am always sad when it ends. I hope it continues for a while. Some may hate it but it is one of the best shows in my opinion. Watch it, try it, it may take a couple of shows to really get into it.

    I love this show! My favorite season was the third.

    I see that a lot of people call this "the worst" and "so bad," but not to me. Wizards of Waverly Place will always be the best for me, but I really like this show too. I think that if the look was like that of WOWP, people wouldn't be complaining as much; the acting is not bad. If it was bad, the portrayal wouldn't be different than how the actors and actresses really are. Do you really think the way Emma behaves is how the actress behaves in real-life? Or the youngsters who portray The T3s? I think it's all just the look, and therefore the feel of EWW, that makes the difference.

    I feel disappointed about Daniel and Mia not remembering anymore, after Emma gives Daniel his wish. Why couldn't Emma use the spell she put on Andi and Diego, which let them remember Daniel in their life? I hope one or both make an appearance on Wits Academy.

    I love Maddie; she's like Sharpay from HSM. Her relationship with Diego changes her, and that's one of the best parts in the show.

    I love Daniel, and that's not just because he's cute. I hated Mia at first, as her attitude was cold and careless. But when Jax came along, I saw him as a better choice for Emma. When Mia stopped plotting revenge, I wanted Daniel to be with her.

    But why no memories for anyone but Emma and Andi? It's not an alternate reality anymore, was it? Couldn't Emma have granted Daniel's wish without removing everyone's (witches, wizards, kanays) memories?

    Other than that, this is one of my favorite shows.

    I sat and watched 2 episodes (On Demand) with my 9 yr old daughter. I have never written a review for anything else on TV - ever, (and not much else either) but the overwhelming gaff this show is, basically made me feel obligated. It is such a poor quality filmed, edited and written show that I can't believe its on television and not completely created by high schoolers. I grew up watching Nickelodeon and this show is bottom of the barrel. I do think half of the kids in the show have more talent than the show is helping them demonstrate, but the other half of the cast is very lacking in experience and purpose. To sum it up, the entire show is absolutely cringe-worthy, awkward and forced non-sense. This show is rated for an older demographic but is so cheesy only younger kids would like it - however it's content of dating drama and back-stabbing brats in high school, make it a "no watch" show for my household. Come on Nickelodeon, cheap shows like this are a slap in the face to our children and parents.

    Yes the plots are quite weak for some of episodes but the actors and actresses especially Lily and Maddie carry off the shows very well. Emma, Katie, Andi are all very funny. I really enjoy this show when I see it. I like the format of all of the Every Witch Way for example how it always leaves you on a cliff hanger. All of the characters are very creative and individual like Sophie has a funny touch and Emma adds a kind and optimistic touch to to he series. All of the actors and actresses perform their pars well and they all give their touch to the show. Although some of the magical effects are quite obviously fake but some leave quite a real effect.

    I actually thought that this show would be the stupidest thing ever when I saw the promos and I wasn't planning on watching it. But when I started to watch a few episodes, I was hooked. Of course, the acting isn't brilliant, but I've seen the actors in other stuff and they weren't bad (Ken Sanders, Cinnamon). The plot is amazing and I've been obsessed with seeing if there's a new episode.After you watch a few episodes , I bet you guys'll be hooked too.(You might like it better if you are a teen girl. Not saying that this is a girl show) So check it out! Favorite Episode: Witches Flu

    Favorite Character(s): Mac Davis or Sophie Johnson ( I think that they would be totally adorable together! I think that you guys would love the show.

    I wish I went to Iridium High

    I am a 35 year old mom, and the first time I watched this show was with my 6 year old daughter. Now I am not sure which one of us is more excited to see the next episode. Magic is mysterious and an instant draw for kids. Plus anything with high school kids will be interesting for younger kids because they can't wait to be big themselves. Although some the acting may be a bit over dramatic, that makes it fun. Younger kids like over dramatic, and that also makes it easy for kids to know when someone is doing something wrong versus when someone is doing something right. This show is silly and fun and has some hidden lessons kids don't even realize they are getting. Although older kids may think it is lame, this show is perfect for my six year old, and her 35 year old mom.

    Yes. To older adults this show may not be viewed as great to their perception. Though to a teen girl this show is quite normal and drama like. I'm a teen girl and obviously I like this show a lot. If your opinion is bad and is going to affect others decisions then please don't reply because your "simply wasting your time" like you said. Hannah Montana was the best to, it wasn't bad acting and it got better through the years. In your opinion it was bad but then again it was back in 2007 it started and filming has improved since then. This show may not be good but it fits the criteria of a show to be enjoyed by younger children. If you do watch more than one episode you get hooked. I couldn't wait till the next day and on Friday to Monday for the next episode to come on. I loved it. They should make a season two. It's a good teen sitcom since Icarly ,yes iCarly was better but that was 7 seasons and it was a totally different story line. Maybe you should give nick a chance and not judge them by the first episode. And calm down it was a one month event so you got your wish you don't have to watch it anymore. But I think it was a good show !! GREAT JOB NICKELODEON
