Please stop reviewing after the first episode CSM!

This series is PG, not TV-14 like Apple says. It’s fine for the kids. Cole uses a slur but it will slide past the kids. Perfectly fine for kids. Lots of songs, wholesomeness, and fun!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (14 ):

This fun, well-written series hits lots of high notes thanks to a good script and a talented all-star cast. It manages to strike a creative balance between different story telling genres, allowing it to consistently deliver the producers' smart, dry humor. Furthermore, Birdie's narration, combined with the musical numbers, give it a slight Broadway flair that's both sweet and edgy. But, in-between folks breaking out into song lies a solid plot that's moved along by colorful, believable characters. Overall, Central Park is entertaining, and worth tuning into if you're looking for something light and enjoyable.
