Cheesy comedy spin-off has fantasy violence, no substance.

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Themes include good versus evil, learning the ins and outs of being a superhero, teamwork. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

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. 

Sexy Stuff
Language

Words like "butt," "dumb," etc. 

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Danger Force is a spin-off of the live-action superhero comedy Henry DangerThe 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.

What's the story?

Henry Danger spin-off DANGER FORCE is a comedy series about a resident superhero who creates a school to train his new crew of sidekicks. Now that Henry Danger is gone, Captain Man (Cooper Barnes) has put together Danger Force: four kids with special powers to help him keep Swellview safe. But Chapa (Havan Flores), Bose (Luca Luhan), Miles (Terrence Little Gardenhigh), and Mika (Dana Heath) still haven't learned to control their powers, or how to work together. With the help of Schwoz (Michael D. Cohen), Captain Man hopes that he can train them to become the disciplined team they need to be in order to beat the town's long list of villains. 

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.   

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what makes superheroes popular. How do the crime fighters' character strengths in Danger Force compare with those of other popular superheroes? Are the characters good role models?

  • Kids: If you had superpowers, what would they be? How would you use them to help people?
