This comedy treads on light water since it is aimed at a wide range of ages. It appeals to kids and adults can also not feel the need to leave the room or change the channel. Because of this, it brings adults and kids together in a rare treat of enjoying something together. Advanced animal information is provided by the veternarian and a teen with a special interest in nature is there to give his own input as well. Sara Paxton in the lead is sweet thou innocent in her take on her new farm life and therein lies the smile value for all.
There is some humor in Darcy's Wild Life, but nothing really funny. Darcy's life is unrealistic in the way that she is so full of Hollywood and fashion. Most of the local charcters are ridiculus and Darcy is too naieve for my taste. Darcy has little true personality or special interest. the best part of this program is probably the veterinary office.
Sexual Content (Not an Issue): Some flirting.
Violence (Not an Issue): Lots of slapstick.
Language (Not an Issue): None.
Social Behavior (Pause): Darcy is good-hearted, but she's stereotyped as a dumb blonde.

Drug/Alcohol/Tobacco (Not an Issue): None.

What an original plot! *sarcasm* A rich girl has to get a taste of normal life. Darcy is good-hearted, but she isn't exactly the sharpest crayon in the box. Typical dumb blonde stereotype.
The show isn't very funny (only rarely it is), and the quirky situations that Darcy gets into get old quickly as they seem to recycle the plot with a new twist for each episode.
And of course, what would a comedy be without slapstick humor?
This show is good stuff for kids 7 and older. But be warned - you may lose a few brain cells watching this show.
