Is funny and made really well. Has some violence but most of it is not scary violence. Plus has some insults like idiot and stupid.

The value and realism is actually valid

It is important to have a show like this to show children that competitive gaming is a valid job. Many people don't even consider that to be true, but, in my opinion, a job has two requirements. #1. You get money for doing it. Check. #2. It is legal. Check. Other than the really stupid female, kids can learn a lot from this show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (6):

Jessie alum Boyce seizes the starring role in this Disney comedy that will appeal to kids and young tweens. Conor's transformation from a self-absorbed fame junkie to a regular high school Joe isn't without its pitfalls, but the result leaves viewers with a positive impression of the importance of friendship. It's a particularly important message, not only for the target audience in general but also in relation to a virtual gaming culture that's easily isolating.

The show's creators could have (really, should have) done more to even out the gender ratio among the core cast, and spinning the lone female in the group as a stereotypical dim blonde was unnecessary. That said, parents will like what the characters have to say about the value of personal relationships, and kids will like how the show juxtaposes Conor's real life and his gaming talents to comical results.
