Me, my sister, and my mom enjoy watching this show and we always look forward to watching the new episode on Tuesday. It's pretty good for kids and teens, but before you let your child watch this, please take caution about the show.
Plot: The show is about a dance teacher Abby Lee Miller who wants the girls to win the competition. The dances are great and there's always a new dance in every episode. The choreography is excellent and the costumes are spectacular.
Characters: The dance instructor is a really good choreographer and creates good costumes and dance routines, but she needs to be a little gentle on the dancers instead of yelling at them. I like all of the dancers, but I don't like how Abby gives Maddie special treatment and not the others. It's not fair. Abby really needs to treat all the students equal and at least be a little gentle on them. Like in one episode, Abby cries for Maddie because she forgot her solo and then there's one where she's mad at Paige for forgetting her solo. The moms can get in fights with each other and the dance instructor, but we find the fights somewhat funny. The dancers are just fine and are really good dancers.
Violence: No violence, but be aware that there's some arguments (sometimes loud and intense ones) between one of the moms and Abby. We think that some of the fights are hilarious yet ridiculous, but it might be too intense for some kids.
Sexy Stuff: Some of the outfits are a little bit extreme (I was a little in shock on the episode when they dressed like showgirls for a dance number) but it's not that bad.
Language: When the moms are talking or when there's an argument arousing, you will find some bad words. Some are bleeped, some are not. This kind of language might not be appropriate for some kids.
Overall Rating: It's an amazing show!
