We were able to watch the first episode of Coop And Cami Ask The World and we loved it! The best part about the show is how relatable the show is to kids as it relies heavily on the social media questions that Coop and Cami ask on their online channel Would You Wrather, a play on their last name. We got to see the first episode titled, “Would You Wrather Take Your Mom to the School Dance” in which the kids learn that their mother is ready to start dating again.
Cooper and Cami learn that their Mom is ready to start dating again and her first date is with none other than their school’s principal.
Cooper isn’t really ready for his mother to start dating again so puts a question to the Wratherheads, the fans of the online show. Would you rather take your Mom to the school dance or … let your Mom go on a date with your school principal. This seems like something that might possible happen and something that kids this age might relate to and struggle with. There are a few other smaller story lines in this episode that focus on Cooper trying to take Peyton, played by Jayden Bartels, to the school dance, while at the same time trying to ask his mother to the dance to keep her away from the principle. We also gets introduced to their friend Fred as well as Ollie Wrather, the younger brother, in this episode as they both get to decide if they would rather keep their hair or have a new drone.
The show even touches on the fact that Rebecca Metz, who plays Jenna Wrather, lost her husband and the kids father 2 years ago and how she is dealing with dating. A few fun things to note are that the girl that Cooper asks to the dance, Peyton, is an avid video game player that crushes Cooper during their gaming sessions. Principle Walker, played by Kevin Daniels, is a great character and is deadpan funny with his overall personality. His short scene about balloon animals is fun and fits what we expect from his character.
The story of the show seems like something that is going to be fun to watch each episode as they tackle different questions, but it will keep with a consistent overall theme of dealing with social media. This should lead to some very funny episodes as the show progresses.
The casting is well done with our favorite character being Olivia Sanabia as Charlotte Wrather. The character she plays is of the older sister who really does not want much to do with the online show as she thinks she will embarrass herself. She plays the role perfectly. That said, all of the casting is spot on from Dakota Lotus and Ruby Rose Turner to the rest of the cast including Paxton Booth, Albert Tsai and Rebecca Metz. We have enjoyed seeing Albert on many other shows, so this seems like a role that fits him.
What we come to find out at the end of the episode is that the kids show is so popular, most of the adults will be watching it as well, so that means they can’t really pull a fast one on any of them. This is a great lesson for the kids to learn as they get to understand that if you do go online there is not much to hide, even from adults that aren’t that into social media. We can only imagine how a principle would have to deal with famous kids running an online show in real life.
Put this show on your regular watch list, it is going to be a fun one.
COOP AND CAMI ASK THE WORLD – Dakota Lotus and Ruby Rose Turner lead the ensemble cast of “Coop and Cami Ask the World,” a live-action comedy series about Cooper and Cameron Wrather, two middle-school siblings who make nearly all of their decisions both mundane and madcap by crowdsourcing opinions from the millions of followers of Cooper’s online channel, Would You Wrather.
