Sydney to the Max is an American comedy television series created by Mark Reisman that premiered on Disney Channel on January 25, 2019.


Sydney Reynolds is a 12-year-old girl who lives in Portland, Oregon with her father Max and her paternal grandmother Judy as she navigates life in middle school with her friend Olive. Episodes include a flashback segment set in 1992 that detail 12-year-old Max and his friend Leo, who both work at a shopping mall arcade owned by Leo's father. Both segments show Sydney and young Max getting into similar situations.

Why It Stay The Same

  1. Incredible premise.
  2. Catchy theme song.
  3. Awesome acting.
  4. The flashback segments from 1992 are a great idea.
  5. Good color scheme.
  6. Lots of likeable characters like Sydney, Olive, Young Max, and Leo.
  7. The series premiere "Can't Dye This" was watched by most viewers which means it’s the most watched episode of the show in Disney Channel history.
  8. Sydney tries to act like her dad when he was 12 years old.
  9. The songs in "Nuthin' but a Dance Thang" and "Dancin' the Vida Loca" are all great to listen to!
  10. It manages to bring back the charm and give a nostalgic feel of some of the 2000s Disney Channel shows.
  11. Christian J. Simon's former co-star Nicolas Cantu (star of The Amazing World of Gumball) guest starred as Dominic in "Dude, Where's My Car Wash Money?"
  12. The show teaches some good morals.
  13. Some heartwarming moments.
  14. It is relaxing to watch.
  15. The episode "Boy Story" does a reference to the 1995 Pixar movie, Toy Story.
  16. One black actor, who is Winston A. Marshall did a guest appearance to play Adult Leo in "As Bad as She Gets".
  17. Like Andi Mack and Raven's Home It was one of Disney Channel's most popular shows of the late 2010s.

Bad Qualites

  1. It can be boring occasionally.
  2. Sydney and Olive can be annoying at times.
  3. The laugh track plays at almost every unfunny line.
  4. Olive is seen as a Mary-Sue.
  5. Sydney can be rude to her dad, which is mean-spirited.
  6. In the later seasons, the ages of the kid actors get very odd because they look more like they are now aged 14 to 16 years old.
  7. There is blatant product placement like Dawn dish soap.
  8. Although there were no announcements of the show ending or a new season coming, "Any Given Sunday Brunch" was a mediocre ending and it leaves off in a cliffhanger.


Sydney to the Max received decent ratings, scoring a 6.2/10 on IMDb during it's premiere on TV.
