Good.....until Episode 6

This show was good...until Episode 6, when you see a teenage girl (from behind) remove her shirt and bra. It doesn’t show anything in the front, but I wouldn’t let my kid watch this show because of this.

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (7):

This engaging series adapts the high school detention scenario in The Breakfast Club to capture the angst of teen dramas such as Degrassi and the horror of The Walking Dead's blood-sucking zombies. Each 30-minute installment is just long enough to hone in on personal drama while creating the tension necessary to increase the shock factor of some predictable -- but no less grisly -- moments.

Teens will appreciate the many popular Disney and YouTube celebs that make their appearances in this solid, entertaining tale, but if they're sensitive to blood and gore, they might want to avoid Freakish (or at least be ready to cover their eyes).
