Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty…. Ok very cheesy and obvious way to open a review about a show called Paradise City. When a joke writes itself who am I to deny it? Truth be told when Amazon first pitched this project to me, I actually thought it was a show about Guns N Roses. Sadly it isn’t, but it is about a dysfunctional rock star. One notable thing about the show is this series marked one of the last performances from former Disney Star Cameron Boyce , who died tragically young, in 2019, of a rare ailment.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could use our video gaming skills to surmount – or at least circumvent – challenges in real life?
Disney XD has just greenlit a live-action series called Gamer’s Guide To Pretty Much Everything in which 15-year old Conor is forced to attend high school after a thumb injury takes him out of the fast-paced, supercharged world of the professional gaming circuit.
As a coping mechanism, he begins to visualize his life as a videogame and begins applying his experience as a gamer to his new real life situation.
Gamer’s Guide To Pretty Much Everything stars Cameron Boyce as Conor. For further details, follow the jump.
