Is It Any Good?

This likable soapy show for tweens has catchy tunes to boot. Almost Never doesn't boast the high-end studio production of many Disney shows; that's part of the charm. The weather isn't always sunny in the U.K., and there's a laundry hamper on the counter in the main characters' kitchen. Though the parents in the show can be a little stagey with their offers to help, or their strict rules, they're there. And that's appropriate for younger tweens to see -- it feels like real life. Not a lot of rules about cell phone usage going on here, but there's not a lot of cyber-bullying happening either.

Tweens who are getting bitten by the music bug will enjoy the song writing and jam sessions. Adults might not mind the cover versions of songs that they know. This is a great show for families to enjoy together on a rainy weekend at home.
