Soccer-centered show for tweens is likable enough.

Although the general themes in Just for Kicks are nothing new, it's refreshing to see a tween/teen-oriented series that focuses on a sport -- especially one that puts girls in the spotlight. At times, the show seems unduly focused on all the sniping that occurs among the girls; this is probably realistic to some degree and works to set up the heartwarming reconciliations, but it's a bit hard to take when the cattiness runs rampant.

Also, the script is rather flimsy and the acting weak at times; most of the parents, in particular, are two-dimensional and unremarkable. That said, the four lead actresses are likable enough that viewers will definitely want to find out what happens to their characters next -- and their swift soccer moves are convincing enough to make anyone want to go out and kick a ball around.
