Question: I'm glad you liked High School Musical 2, but I just couldn't watch it. I stumbled onto the original movie and found it entertaining enough (my child is too old for Disney; I sometimes watch it in secret. I love Kim Possible!). So over the weekend I thought I'd catch HSM2 — I couldn't get through the opening 15 minutes. I know that music — and Zac Efron — are the stars of this show, but the plot should at least be halfway plausible. Instead it was contrived and flimsier than a stripper's veil: Everyone in the high-school "gang" gets jobs at the same prestigious country club — without interviews, or even applications? Puh-leaze! Plus, I think there were three or four songs in the first 10 minutes alone; I guess Disney doesn't follow the "less is more" philosophy.

Playing young Ms. Dorsey in this follow-up is Christy Carlson Romano, with whom TVGuide.com traded Qs and As.

"What's the sitch?" That's the question usually asked on Disney Channel's popular action 'toon, Kim Possible. For Christy Carlson Romano — the voice behind the cheerleader-turned-crime-fighter — here's the sitch: At 19, the Even Stevens star will be the youngest performer ever to play the role of Belle in Beauty and the Beast on Broadway. She debuts today. So we decided to call — not beep — Romano to reach her about returning to the Great White Way.
