Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

This intense teen drama tells a good story while highlighting some of the major pressures high school students face on a day-to-day basis. It points to some difficult problems teens deal with, including prescription drug dealing, gun violence, homelessness, and the need to overachieve, but presents them in ways that highlight the complicated reasons why certain decisions are made, and why these problems aren't easily resolved.

The thoughtful narratives weave together seamlessly, and each approximately 13-minute installment leaves you wanting to know what's going to happen next. Overall, Five Points is worth the watch for those mature enough to handle it.

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.
