I'll admit it, today I watched an episode of JONAS!. JONAS!, for those of you who don't know, is the Jonas Brothers' television show. In the show, they essentially play themselves, showing how they balance being rockstars with going to school and being normal kids. There's really so much to say (judge) about this show, but for now I'd just like to share with you the absolute saddest thing I've ever seen on the Disney Channel, courtesy of JONAS!.
You might not have known this, but there are actually FOUR Jonas Brothers, not three, and I'm not talking about Alec Baldwin. His name is Frankie, and he's 8 years younger than the youngest (famous) JoBro, Nick.
Now, of course, if you had three older famous brothers, you'd be super-jealous, right? They get to do really cool stuff like play for the Obama girls and have a 3-D concert dvd while you get jack shit cause you're nine. BUT THEN, they decide to give you a role on their show! Sweet! Except for the fact that on the show you do exactly what you in real life: show up briefly simply to make your presence known and then get the hell out cause your hot brothers have to sing for screaming tweens.
In the episode I saw, Joe Jonas (the one with the Sandy Cohen eyebrows) told Frankie he'd count to ten and then come look for him. Frankie says he knows how to play hide and seek and disappears. We don't see Frankie again until almost the end of the episode when a non-JoBro character opens a cabinet and Frankie hands him a waterbottle. Then, at the very end of the episode, their bodyguard delivers Frankie's mail to him (still in the cupboard), and a leprechaun hunting tv show sparks the brothers' memories. I swear, this kid is like a set of handcuffs away from a DCFS phonecall. Are they supposed to be baby-sitting? Where are the parents? Is Frankie going to find out in an upcoming episode that he's actually a famous wizard and can leave his awful home to go to wizarding school? I guess I'll just have to watch and find out.
