Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This fun series shows how ordinary kids can experience extraordinary things when they come together as a team. Each episode is told from a different character's point of view, which offers more insight into their lives and personal struggles. Furthermore, every case the group successfully solves reveals moments of personal growth and awareness.

Many of the show's themes, which range from fearing a strict teacher to being poor and ashamed of your home, reflect interests, insecurities, and concerns that kids everywhere may have while growing up. These are dealt with in positive, relatable ways. But Four and a Half Friends also has some interesting plot twists, and lots of humorous moments, which makes it very entertaining.
