Drake & Josh is an American television sitcom series created by Dan Schneider. The show was aired on January 11th, 2004 on Nickelodeon. Although it was based in the city of San Diego, it was actually filmed in Los Angeles. The storyline follows the lives of two teenage boys who become stepbrothers, Drake Parker (Drake Bell) and Josh Nichols (Josh Peck).
Both actors played previous roles together in The Amanda Show along with Nancy Sullivan, who plays Audrey, Drake’s mom of the series. Along with Drake and his mother, comes his mischievous little sister Megan Parker (Miranda Cosgrove), who also becomes Josh’s new step sister when his dad, Walter (Jonathan Goldstein) marries Drake’s mom.
Drake is a popular musician, who attracts many girls, while Josh is a super smart kid, who obeys all the rules. In the show you see Drake and Josh bickering with there opposing personalities. Not all of there arguments are caused from one another, there “evil” little sister Megan has her fair share of starting problems between them. In the end they always over came their problems. Although the series ran for four seasons, ending in 2008, TeenNick still plays many reruns of the show.
The show always had a good sense of humor and would continuously make us laugh. Today, real life Drake and Josh are out doing their own thing as actors, but we will always remember them as our favorite stepbrothers.
