Absolute rubbish

A cartoon warlord talking in explicit terms with a young girl who seems to be about 7 to 10 years. Even though this is a cartoon, clearly this is completely inappropriate. How can you recommend this for any teenager? And give it three stars? I have found that Common Sense Media is of very little use. The rating above does not give me a chance to say its not for any "kids".

Is It Any Good?

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

Morbid absurdity reigns in this mature cartoon that promises to entertain older viewers who have even the mildest of dark sides. Dylan is a contradiction in terms: a young, otherwise innocent-seeming girl whose heavy black eyeliner is the only obvious sign of her slightly maniacal and morbid tendencies. Who better for a best friend than a capricious god/lord with anger-management issues? They're an odd couple, but there's something curiously endearing about them.

That said, this cartoon carries a parental-discretion warning for good reason. The constant references to sexuality (many of which have violent undertones), frequent salty language, and generally combative situations that usually end violently are far too disturbing for kids. Some parents will take offense to certain aspects of the dialogue, so if you're considering it for your teens, you may want to prescreen the episodes to make sure yours won't get the wrong message from its tone.
