Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The compelling drama, which is produced by Michelle Trachtenberg, features original stories that involve bullying behavior of some kind. Each of its three seasons generates a different storyline, and stars a completely different cast, including folks like Erica Dasher and Monique Coleman. But they all pointedly highlight how damaging bullying is, and the far-reaching consequences it has on others.

The content gets a little edgier with each season. However, it is the timeliness of the narratives, which involve cyberbullying, school shootings, and peer shaming (among other things), that makes Guidance interesting and relevant. If you're looking for a smart series that entertains and addresses important topics, this one is worth checking out.
