A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Themes include good versus evil, learning the ins and outs of being a superhero, teamwork.
Positive Role Models
Captain Man sometimes lies to Danger Force in order to keep them from going out to fight villains before they're ready. The kids don't always listen and often talk back and play tricks on adults. The superheroes are fighting on the "good side."
Violence & Scariness
Some yelling, pushing, arguing. Danger Force's powers include shooting lightning bolts from fingers, making things fly telepathically, and other skills that cause people to stumble, fall, fly into the air, etc. Villains threaten, use lasers, and try do mean things, but are more goofy than scary.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Danger Force is a spin-off of the live-action superhero comedy Henry Danger. The show has a silly sitcom vibe that may appeal to tweens and younger, but it's not the best family watch-together pick thanks to fantasy violence (lasers, shooting lightning bolts from fingers, things catching fire) and characters who often argue with one another. There's also a bit of language along the lines of "butt" and "dumb." The content isn't very substantive (though there are messages about good vs. evil and teamwork), but kids who like this sort of thing will enjoy it.
Is It Any Good?
This colorful and silly live-action comedy offers the same cheese humor as the show it was spun from. Captain Man is still his obnoxious self while struggling to keep his young sidekicks in order. Meanwhile, his young crew always manages to cause mischief and wreak havoc. This, along with trying to find ways to stop foolhardy villains, is the glue that holds the series together. But despite having limited substance, Danger Force is lighthearted and fun enough; it could just be a lot better.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
