What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Go! Live Your Way is a popular Argentinian musical teen soap opera. There’s some sexual innuendo, as well as flirting, innocent teen crushes, and talk of adult relationships. There’s lots of arguing between characters, and both adults and teens don’t always make the best choices. Some of the high school personalities on the show are stereotypical, and mature themes include divorce, the death of a parent, and blackmail. All this being said, it should be appropriate for older tweens and young teens to handle.

What's the story?
GO! LIVE YOUR WAY (a.k.a. Go! Vive A Tu Manera) is an Argentinian musical soap opera about the trials and tribulations of a group of musically talented teenagers and their friends. Mía Cáceres (Pilar Pascual) is an extremely talented young woman who lives with her protective aunt. When she wins a scholarship to Saint Mary’s Academy, an elite boarding school renown for its performing arts department, she’s excited for the opportunity. But once she gets there she finds herself at odds with the school director’s daughter, Lupe Achával (Renata Toscano), who up until that point was considered the most popular and talented student there. Making things more complicated is the fact that Mía develops a romantic interest in Álvaro (José Giménez Zapiola), who happens to be Lupe’s older brother, and one of the school’s star basketball players. This makes him a target for folks like Lupe’s boyfriend, Juanma Portelosi (Santiago Saez). But with the help of her friends, Zoe and Simón (Carmela Barsamián and Paulo Sánchez Lima, respectively), Mía is determined to make the most of this opportunity, including joining the popular school performance group Go!
Is it any good?
This Spanish-language dramatic comedy will remind former High School Musical and early Glee fans of the young, good-looking high schoolers singing, dancing, and dealing with teen angst they once watched. Even if subtitles are needed to understand the dialogue, viewers can easily recognize the common student stereotypes and tropes these types of shows are known for, including the bratty, popular kid, the troubled athlete, and of course, the new kid who inevitably challenges the social norms. Like many teen soaps, it doesn’t always show kids behaving appropriately, or adults always being the best role models. But despite some mild edginess, Go! Live Your Way contains lots of innocent, entertaining charm for a new generation of music-loving tweens.
