Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this futuristic, computer-animated kids' show has little concern for common sense and safety. The tween characters recklessly rip around on their high-tech hoverboards and hoverbikes, chasing after human clones in an effort to destroy them. While they do wear helmets and protective gear, they weave dangerously through traffic and attempt to jump over other vehicles. Heartless violence is also depicted, as the android children show no remorse when destroying the clones.
Is It Any Good?
Short on story and full of wild action, with its CGI animation, Get Ed resembles a pursue-and-destroy video game. While the characters may roll into protective bouncy balls when thrown off their boards, kids should know the consequences of unsafe skating and biking. But the most disturbing aspect is that the clones look like humans, and the Dojo team grows more excited the more they wipe out. All in all, there are no real positive lessons to be learned here. Get Ed is purely high-action, high-speed entertainment.
Kids may get a hoot out of Get Ed because it's full of extreme sport thrills and video game action. But parents should think twice before letting kids under 8 watch. Those sensitive to rapid movement and motion sickness should also be aware that this show is visually comparable to a rollercoaster. Overall, while potentially entertaining, there are better choices out there.
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.
