A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

High school is full of highs and lows, ranging from teen romance to peer pressure and competition. Friendship, working towards reaching your goals, and being true to yourself are all themes. Storylines relating to divorce, the death of a parent, and blackmail.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Mía is committed to her goals of a great musical career, and is true to her friends. Lupe also has aspirations, but isn’t very nice to people. Some kids can be mean, or try to derail others. Adults don’t always make good decisions. 

Violence

There’s lots of snarky arguing and some mild insult hurling. The death of a parent is alluded to. 

Sex

It has some innuendo, including occasional, vague references to past love affairs between adults, and lots of romantic tensions between teens. 

Language
Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

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.

Good show.... but missed target market

This show is good for preteens and younger kids aged 7-10 but, for a show aimed at teens, the storyline is just not fun enough for teens to binge watch it. I’v... Continue reading

Okay, So, when I first saw this, I thought: "Vive Tu Manera?" But now, I can't stop watching it! Amazing songs (even in Spanish) and amazing cast... Continue reading

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. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the way a TV series can build an international audience. Is it due to universally understood themes? Likable characters? Does using stereotypes make a show in another language easier to understand?  

  • Besides the language, are there any other cultural differences between what you see in Go! Live Your Way and similar shows in the United States? Are there similarities?
