Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This show's premise might remind some parents of the ‘80s hit Fame, but Baxter is pretty sanitized compared to that classic. The toughest issues these teens cope with are overcoming stage fright and emerging from a famous parent's shadow, so there's not a lot of substantial content to be drawn from the stories.

Of course, that alone isn't reason to exclude the show from your tweens' options. The vibrant characters and innocuous comedy are fun, as are the impromptu song-and-dance routines that are commonplace at a school for wannabe performers. What's more, there are some sweet messages about self-esteem, perseverance, and friendship, as well, and the glaring absence of any iffy content, so time spent with these characters certainly isn't a waste for tweens.
