Oh, Snap! Rewatching That's So Raven as an Adult Is an Even Better Experience
Growing up, That's So Raven was one of my favourite shows on Disney Channel. I loved seeing myself represented in a positive light, I adored Raven Baxter's sense of fashion, and, honestly, I probably got some of my quirkiness from her. To this day, my older sisters and I randomly quote our favourite lines from the series (e.g. "Ya nasty" and "Quiet! Mama's trying to relax!")
Thankfully, Disney+ has allowed me to revisit That's So Raven in all its four-season glory. I've been binging the comedy like no one's business and laughing as if I've never seen it before. My feelings about certain things have even shifted a bit now that I'm watching the show as an adult. Like, I kind of admire Cory's hustle — the kid was an entrepreneur. And the way they address important themes, such as racism, body image, and climate change, fits right in with how we discuss those topics more often and openly nowadays.
