Is It Any Good?

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

This entertaining series combines soap opera-like drama with bits of dry British humor to create pre-school oriented storylines that demystify hospitals and treatments. These narratives also feature doctors and nurses problem solve by listening and talking to patients, in addition to relying on modern medicine. There are some humorous parallels to adult soap operas (like dramatic music), but the suggestions of potential romantic interests between cast members will completely fly over the heads of children. However, some of the medical events (like seeing an unconscious young elephant wearing an oxygen mask and having blood drawn), might be a little distressing to more sensitive viewers. But overall, Hilltop Hospital is a smart and enjoyable series for kids who like to play doctors and nurses, or who aspire to be one or the other.
