* So why bother with ActingForTwo? I'd have written Maddie out entirely and had Joey as Liv's foil.
** 1. So they could do the whole TomboyAndGirlyGirl thing.
** 2. Some of the plots (such as the first episode) rely on them being identical.
** 3. So they could play with the different personalities of a nerdy teenage boy and an athletic tomboy girl.
*** This sounds like a GenderFlip of ''AustinAndAlly''.
** 4. So they don't end up in a RelationshipWritingFumble and have Liv and Joey end up like [[WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Justin and Alex]].
*** Having a boy/girl team is already prominent in ''AustinAndAlly'' and ''DogWithABlog'', to an extent.
*** Sadly, point 4 is moot thanks to the HalloweenEpisode. Yeah, ew.
**** I think that is intentional - have Joey grind his skills against a diva so he can be more likely to success with other girls. Real divas tend to be AlphaBitch and hard to control so Liv volunteered.
** 5. The show was originally intended to be a rip-off of TheBradyBunch called ''Bits and Pieces.'' Disney realized they already did that with LifeWithDerek and decided to make a rip-off of ThePattyDukeShow instead.
*** Actually, it wasn't Disney that did Life With Derek. They simply imported it from Canada.
** 6. They probably want to make a big twist that they aren't twins and it's just one girl with a SplitPersonality.
*** that's way to cynical for Disney. Plus, that brings up alot of questions about everything that has ever happened on the show.
* In Skate-a-rooney, Liv is a celebrity judge in the skateboarding competition and her boyfriend is competing in it. The people who chose her never thought this might make her biased?
** They probably didn't care since it didn't bother them that their celebrity judge didn't know enough about skateboarding to be accepted as a judge without the celebrity status.
[[WMG:Where are the paparazzi and mobs after the first episode?]]
This contrasts with HannahMontana who gets mobbed as soon as she show up. Given how success ''Sing it Loud!'' is, it should have propelled Liv into IdolSinger status, and give her a similar following of fans as Hannah or {{Glee}} cast members had.
* This is her home town though, where most people probably knew her before she went to Hollywood, so they aren't that starstruck by her as people were by Hannah. She had to have made visits back home every once in a while, too.
[[WMG:In Switch-a-Rooney the plans should not backfire, given their previous experience in pulling off those]]
Liv should be aware of Maddie's eye condition. To pull that trick off flawlessly she just need a pair of glasses that looks identical to Maddie's but without vision-correcting lens (i.e. the lens are simple flat panes of glass), and get Maddie contacts. She should also be able to give Maddie acting lessons so that she can pull off [[GirlinessUpgrade a convincing Liv vibe]] and her own proficiency in acting should allow herself to pull off [[LetsGetDangerous a convincing Maddie feeling]], especially when facing the driving tester and Artie the fanboy who is not exactly familiar with them. (This is a [[LatexPerfection confirmed myth in this situation]] by Series/MythBusters)
[[WMG: Maddie is on her way to be [[{{Chickification}} chickified]] into Liv with straight hair.]]
* Following [[Series/HannahMontana Lilly]]'s steps.
[[WMG: How the heck does Artie get away with so openly bullying Joey? Especially since Joey's ''the coach and the guidance counselor's kid''?]]
