We Blab Entertainment Magazine decided to take a look at one of the Disney Channel's most beloved series from the early 2000's Lizzie McGuire. The phenomenon of Lizzie McGuire spawned a feature film in 2003 and, launched Hilary Duff into superstardom. The series followed the daily adventures of an adolescent girl whose real thoughts and emotions are expressed by her sarcastic animated alter ego. The series also starred Lalaine as Miranda Sanchez, and Adam Lamberg as David 'Gordo' Gordon.
Now we asked Sarah, who runs the popular Instagram account Disneysh0ws to rank her favorite 10 Lizzie McGuire episodes from the 2001 - 2004 series.
10. You're a Good Man, Lizzy McGuire (Season 2, Episode 13) - While Lizzie and Kate are stuck working together for the Spring Fling committee, Lizzie sees Kate knock over the bust of the school's founding principal.
Sarah - This episode is one of my favorites because of the lesson. After Lizzy takes the blame for something she didn't do and gets banned from the formal, everyone has the party at her place.
9. Just Friends (Season 2, Episode 8) - Lizzie learns what sort of things Ethan Craft is into in order to transform herself into his ideal date.
Sarah - Lizzy gets a hard rejection when she decides to tell Ethan (her crush) that she likes him, but gets rejected and tries to change herself into his ideal girl. However, after trying so hard, she learns that you can't change the way someone feels after he rejects her for a seconds time. We all enjoyed the end when Lizzy and Gordo slow dance in her backyard - we can remember wishing for this to happen.
8. First Kiss (Season 2, Episode 1)- Lizzie meets Ronnie, a paper boy. She falls for him, and gets a series of firsts. First love, kiss, and heartbreak.
Sarah - Who will ever forget Lizzy's first love, Ronnie or their first kiss when they went rollerblading. This episode made us appreciate Gordo after he swooped in when Lizzy had her first breakup with Ronnie.
7. I Do, I Don't (season 1, episode 10) - Lizzie gets a little jealous when Miranda gets paired with Ethan Craft, in class, for a mock marriage assignment.
Sarah - Truthfully, after watching this episode I wanted to do this project myself. With all the jealousy and Lizzy's selfishness, this episode sure did teach us a valuable lesson.
6. Aaron Carter's Coming to Town (Season 1, Episode 7) - When Aaron Carter comes to town, to shoot his new music video, Lizzie, Gordo, Miranda and Matt decide to sneak onto the set.
Sarah - In the spirit of Christmas, this episode makes our top 10. We will never forget that mistletoe kiss, something every girl dreams for Christmas. Also, we can't forget when we all freaked over Aaron Cater's appearance!
5. When Moms Attack (Season 1, Episode 3) - Lizzie is mortified when she finds out that her mom in the girls' chaperone for the class field trip.
Sarah - We have all had an embarrassing day with our parents. This episode made our top list because of the message at the end, although our moms are embarrassing, they also turn out to be very cool.
4. Bye, Bye Hillridge Junior High (Season 2, Episode 23) - As Lizzie and her friends get ready for graduation, Gordo tries to figure out the perfect thing to write in her yearbook.
Sarah - This is one of our favorite episodes because of Gordo's yearbook message. After hiding his feelings for Lizzy, his message lands him a kiss on the cheek. Don't forget the relatable feelings of transitioning from middle school to high school - one of the scariest journeys.
3. Between a Rock and a Bra Place (Season 1, Episode 12) - Lizzie and Miranda decide that it's time for them to get their first bra.
Sarah - Another relatable episode for every girl. Asking for that first bra - oh very terrifying.
2. Picture Day (Season 1, Episode 2) - Its picture day and all Lizzie has to wear is the red unicorn sweater her grandmother made her.
Sarah - This episode is relatable to everyone as we all had a picture day disaster. Every picture day I remember this episode when Lizzy is forced to wear a unicorn sweater (funny since everyone wants an ugly sweater for Christmas now) and Miranda wears the same outfit as Kate. Our picture day anxiety is also relatable because who hasn't wanted to look cool for their school photo.
1. Inner Beauty (Season 2, Episode 16) - Lizzie and Gordo worry about Miranda's diet; Matt expresses interest in the fine arts.
Sarah - This episode made it to the number one spot because of how relatable the episode is to teens since and it's the first time Disney Channel talked about eating disorders. Miranda feels insecure about her body, just as every teenager right now. However, Lizzy and Gordo team up to show Miranda that she is beautiful - just as every person is. This episode has stuck with us through the years - especially that epic music video.

At We Blab Entertainment Magazine one of our all-time favorite shows is Modern Family now going into its 9th season we, asked Cecile K who runs the popular Instagram account OurModernFamily to rank her favorite 10 episodes from the past 9 years.
Told from the perspective of an unseen documentary filmmaker, the series offers an honest, often-hilarious perspective of family life from the viewpoint of three different families who are all related. Below are the top 10 episodes of Modern Family ranked by OurModernFamily along with a few honorable mentions from the managing editor of We Blab Entertainment.
10. A Tale of Three Cites (Season 8. Ep 1) - After recent trips take the Dunphys to New York; Mitch, Cam and Lily to the Midwest; and Jay, Gloria, Manny and Joe to Juarez, Mexico; the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan reunites in its eighth season premiere with all of the families converging at home for Father's Day.
Cecilie - A good, storyline with the Dunphys, where both kids and adults are in New York - without any of them knowing each other is in the same city.
9. The Alliance (Season 8 Ep. 8) - Haley's plan for a fun-filled girl's day with Rainer Shine's teen daughter may be a little more angst-filled than expected. Meanwhile, Luke finds himself in a compromising position with a widow at the club (played by Joely Fisher) and unwittingly helps his grandpa, Jay, with his petition.
Cecilie - A good, clever and well thought out episode. The Alliance is about the characters married to the Pritchetts, and how they help each other when making mistakes.
8. The Future Dunphys (Season 4. Ep 19) - At the hospital, Claire and Phil see the older version of their family; Mitchell and Cameron plan a day for Lily and Gloria; Manny and Jay go to a private school to look around.
Cecilie - The best part of this episode is the scene at the Vietnamese restaurant, but also seeing how the Dunphy kids could grow up to be.
7. Phil's Sexy, Sexy House (Season 7. Ep 7) - Everyone is at Jay and Gloria’s for post-Thanksgiving leftovers brunch and after a conversation about the sexy and sleek house that Phil is helping Mitch and Cam’s friend sell, everyone gets the same bright idea to sneak in there and have a little “fun.” Unbeknownst to one another they all choose the same day to go, and then it quickly escalates into a game of hide and hopefully don’t get found.
Cecilie - So many great moments in just one episode. Credit to the writers on bringing all the plots and characters together at the end, or should I say, Phil's sexy house.
6. Marco Polo (Season 6. Ep 4) - The Dunphys temporarily move into a cramped hotel room while their house is getting treated for mold, and Phil sees this as an opportunity to spend some quality time together, but Claire and the kids are less than enthused. Gloria becomes over protective when Manny starts dating an older, popular girl.
Cecilie - Excellent episode especially with all the Dunphys in one hotel room.
5. My Funny Valentine (Season 1. Ep 15) - Phil and Claire break from their traditional Valentine's Day dinner date and plan a little "role play" excursion. Meanwhile, Jay and Gloria's ideas of romance clash when he takes her to see David Brenner, and Mitchell and Cameron play Cupid for Manny.
Cecilie - I love this episode because of the different interpretations the families have on how to celebrate Valentines Day.
4. Coal Digger (Season 1. Ep 5) - The whole family is invited to Jay and Gloria's for some barbecue and football. However, an earlier incident at school between Manny and Luke makes things very awkward for Gloria and Claire, and then things escalate when a not-so-flattering label is uttered.
Cecilie - This episode of Modern Family brings all of the three families together - under one roof. All families are dysfunctional in their own way - and in Pritchett-Tucker-Dunphy family they manage to intertwine it with comedy.
3. Family Portrait (Season 1. Ep 24) - Claire makes an effort to take a new family portrait, but everybody is too busy to cooperate: Gloria and Manny go with Phil and Alex to a Lakers game and share an awkward moment on the jumbo tron, Cameron gets a job as a wedding singer while Mitchell takes care of Lily and a stray pigeon at home, and Luke interviews Jay for a school project.
Cecilie - This episode grasps all the funny and realistic moments leading up a family photoshoot. Claire's inner perfectionist comes to life in this episode - in a funny way.
2. Caught in the Act (Season 2. Ep 13) - It's Phil and Claire's anniversary, and when the kids go to surprise them with breakfast in bed, they get a surprise of their own. Jay and Gloria's plans for a Vegas vacation are ruined because of a brutally honest email accidentally sent to Claire, and Mitchell and Cameron try to get into a new restaurant owned by a mom at Lily's preschool.
Cecilie - Caught in the act, is hilarious because of the awkwardness between the Dunphy's, after the kids catch Phil and Claire in bed. The episode also has some funny punchlines.
1. Connection Lost (Season 6. Ep 16) - Claire's computer becomes the hub of all the family's activities when she gets stuck at the airport and is desperate to reach Haley after a big fight. After FaceTiming with Phil and the rest of the family to help track her down, Claire quickly turns to online snooping which inevitably becomes disturbing real quick and everyone gets sucked into the online drama.
Cecilie - I love how the entire episode is filmed on a Macbook, and how much work the producers have put into it. The storyline and all the small details are outstanding.
And we have a few honorable mentions from the first 9 years of Modern Family.
Truth Be Told (Season 1. Ep 17) - Jay accidentally kills Manny's pet turtle and lies about it. Mitchell makes a bold decision after he misses a family day because he's called in to work. Claire becomes jealous when Phil's ex-girlfriend pays a visit. Meanwhile Luke is terrified, because Alex, and Haley tease him into thinking he's been adopted, and his ex-girlfriend plans to take him back home after her visit.
Daniel - One of the most hilarious episode from the 1st season because, what older sister hasn't tried to convince their little brother he's adopted. The empire strikes back.
Me? Jealous? (Season 3. Ep 14) - Phil is so preoccupied with impressing his new business partner, Tad, that he doesn't notice what Claire believes is Tad being overtly inappropriate with her. Luke finally breaks up Alex and Haley from fighting, resulting in them dressing him up like a girl like they did in the old days.
Daniel - Betty Luke makes the perfect girl and, I hope she makes another cameo in a future episode.
The Old Wagon (Season 2 Ep. 1) - Phil reluctantly agrees to get rid of the Dunphy station wagon, which prompts a wave of nostalgia for the old car. Meanwhile, Cameron enlists Jay's help when Mitchell tries to build a princess castle for Lily and Manny asks a girl to come over to study.
Daniel - Growing-up my family had an old blue station that used to brake down, and this episode reminds me of the times riding in that old blue station wagon with my siblings.

Teen starlet Rebecca Bloom discusses her hit Amazon Prime series Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, and voicing Marcie in The Peanuts Movie. Also Rebecca talks about working with her co-star David Arquette.
You provided the voice of Marcie in "The Peanuts Movie" which, must have been a fun experience. Can you tell what it was like recording the voice of Marcie?
Recording the voice of Marcie was really an amazing experience. I got to explore different ways of expressing myself and bring my own personal quality to this wonderful character. Peanuts characters have been around for years and I felt honored to be a part of a great tradition. Working with everyone from Bluesky Studios and the Schulz family was really cool. I'm lucky to have had the opportunity.
Congratulations on the Amazon show "Sigmund and the Sea Monsters" in the series for kids you play the character, Robyn. Can you describe your character to us?
Robyn is Johnny's and Scotty's cousin and she is smart, ambitious, hard working and loves to read. She is determined to achieve greatness in her life. She just doesn't know yet exactly what she'll be great at. Robyn loves her cousins and is always up for adventure, but she's usually the voice of reason. She also loves Sigmund and loves being his friend.
You did some ADR (Automated dialogue replacement) work on the feature films "The Edge of Seventeen", and Ouija: Origin of Evil. What's the recording process like when you do ADR work on a major feature film?
It was a wonderful experience to work on both of these films. It's definitely hard work because you need match your voice to the original scene. And sometimes you are only making sounds. But, it's really fun work too. I can't wait to do more!
In "Sigmund and the Sea Monsters" Solomon Stewart plays the lead role Johnny, and you two have a great chemistry on-set. Can you tell us what it's like working on-set with Johnny?
Working with Solomon was really fun. Over time we became like family so it was easy to have great chemistry on camera. On set we had an amazing time. We like a lot of the same music and you tube channels. He is a great actor and working with him was so easy.
I'm sure the filming schedule of "Sigmund and the Sea Monsters" keeps you pretty busy most of the time. How do you balance school with your acting reliabilities?
Balancing school and filming was very easy for me because on set we have school with a tutor who talks to our teachers, from our school and keeps us on track with all of our work.
Veteran actor David Arquette from many Hollywood roles including "Never Been Kissed" starring Drew Barrymore plays the role of Captain Barnabus. Do you have any interesting stories about working with David?
"Never Been Kissed" is one of my favorite movies! So, getting to work with David was so cool. I don't have a story about him, but he taught me so many things like how to be fearless when filming, how to get into character, and to work hard but have fun.
When your not filming, or going-on auditions I'm wondering if you can tell us what you like to do for fun?
When I am not filming or auditioning I am dancing, going to karate, or hanging with my family and friends.
I'm interested to hear about your future ambitions as an actress, and what you hope to archive in this business. Where do you see your self in the next 5 years in terms of acting?
In 5 years I see myself starring in movies, tv shows and doing more voice overs.
Watch the fantastic Sigmund and the Sea Monsters only on Amazon Prime.
