A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Positive messages around being grateful for your family even if they annoy you sometimes, overcoming misunderstandings between generations, and knowing that your parents are trying to do what's best for you.
Positive Role Models
Lead character Allegra is overall a good role model- she keeps working towards her goal of becoming a performer and overcomes obstacles, and she is trying to repair her mother's relationship with her estranged grandmother. She does engage in a bit of teenage rebellion, but she faces consequences for her actions. Some of the other teenaged characters engage in some "mean gir" behavior, but their actions are presented as wrong.
This series was shot and produced in Argentina, and so the cast and crew are all Latin American. The original series was made in Spanish and has been dubbed into English for U.S. audiences, but the song lyrics remain in Spanish. Argentine culture is not explicitly mentioned at all, so the cultural depictions are pretty narrow.

Violence & Scariness
Several "mean girls" who put down and argue with other characters. Arguing and disagreement between teenager and parent is a pretty large plot point. In the first episode, a bit of scariness as Allegra and her mom get into a car accident which results in her mom being hospitalized.

A major plot point revolves around another Disney property, Freaky Friday, which is mentioned frequently by name.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Intertwined, also known as Entrelazados, is a time-traveling TV series about a musical-theater-obsessed teen that hops back and forth between the present and 1994. The fun series has positive overall messages, but there are recurring teenage "mean girls" who put down other characters. Disagreements between teenagers and parents are a pretty large plot point. In the first episode there's a bit of scariness as Allegra and her mom get into a car accident which results in her mom's hospitalization (she later recovers). There's romance throughout, including some on-screen kissing. Many female characters wear clingy clothes, though no sensitive body parts are visible. In true Disney fashion there's product placement cross-promotion, with a major plot point revolving around a stage production of Disney's thrice-remade movie Freaky Friday.
Is It Any Good?
Tweens and teens will love the time-traveling twist Intertwined adds to the familiar "parents just don't understand" storyline in classic coming-of-age media. The Eleven O' Clock company is putting on the musical Freaky Friday, but instead of switching bodies with her mom like the plot of the play, Allegra gets to be her mom's 1994 contemporary and become her friend. Time-traveling is always a fun conceit and it's well-executed here. Kids can revel in the 90s fashion sense that has come back into vogue in the 2020s. Performing arts fanatics will love the dancing and singing throughout, though English-speakers may be disappointed that the songs are not dubbed into English like the dialogue is. Allegra is a relatable character, and kids will want to keep watching to find out how the series ends. The story is a great reminder for kids to have empathy for their parents' struggles (and, ahem, vice versa).
