Lost Opportunity

Having worked in kids television off and on for almost 17 years I have strong feelings when it comes to squandered opportunities. Sadly, there are two new dinosaur series that both fall flat. "Dinosaur King" on FOX -a Pokemon clone with super-powered dinosaurs... and "Dino Squad" on CBS and its throw-away storyline about infected teens turning into dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are the perfect vehicle for teaching science... real science. And you wouldn't even have to sacrifice action, comedy, or character development. Could I do better? You bet I could!

"Overcooked, underdone."

While it has everything that a 7 year-old boy would love, it also had hard and painful environmental messages that it shoved done your throat at every opportunity. So it was a tad preachy. The only reason I still watch it every saturday is because I hope that one day the characters will develop. I don't think it really has any violence. Mostly they just herd up Dino-bees then chill em and spill em.

Teaches good lessons

My son and I watch Dino squad on netflix sometimes. He is really into dinosaurs right now. This show actually does a fairly decent job of teaching about life lessons. Every episode has some sort of social lesson like how to deal with bullies, spending time with family, how it's ok to ask for help when you need it, etc. Yes there are some little bit scary scenes with the dinosaurs attacking the bad guys, but it's no worse than power rangers, Spiderman, or superhero squad.
