Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

This is an ethereal cartoon with roots in Greek mythology and a complicated plot. Heroic Age opens with the intergalactic mission to locate Age, so viewers are left to infer the characters' histories from the dialogue and fleeting references to the events of the past. Without that background, it's difficult to understand, and it's almost impossible to jump into the plot partway through. If you're going to watch, you'll want to do so from the beginning.

The show's violence isn't much of a concern for kids, but its language will be, as the characters often utter "damn," "dammit," and "hell," particularly in stressful moments. For this reason, and because of the story's complexities, it's a better pick for older tweens and teens than it is for kids.
