A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Some of the behavior and attitudes on display in the commercial parodies are iffy; in one, a boy mimes urinating on a purse. On the plus side, the cast is impressively diverse.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
One older teen tries to convince another to join him in a kissing party.

Products & Purchases
There are no real products in the show, parodies of real products are obvious -- like Barbie and Guitar Hero.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
One commercial parody suggests sedating unruly kids, but it's clearly a parody.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although this show is age-appropriate for tweens overall, there are better ways for them to spend their time. Some of the series' commercial parodies depict fairly iffy attitudes and behaviors -- for example, one is for a doll called Back Tattoo Brandie, and another is for Little Devils sedatives for kids (in the latter, a boy is shown miming urinating on a purse). Also, one subplot involves a take-off on selling your soul to the devil -- a kid promises to give up his Eternal Soul II video game to his friend if he wins a competition. All of that said, there's not much in the way of violence or language to worry about, and the cast is impressively diverse.
Is It Any Good?
The show's premise is cute, but the execution is bad -- there's really no other word to describe it. The acting is flatter than the state of Kansas (your local newscaster could give more lively and believable line readings), and the writing is about as subtle as a three-ring circus and clumsier than a baby learning to walk.
The show clearly wants to be clever, and it sort of is -- the plot about the kid willing to trade his Eternal Soul video game for tips to beat his friend isn't a bad storyline, for example. But you don't need the whole Faust operatic steam flash and deep, evil voice routine to get the point. And that's one the show's more subtle attempts at humor. Bottom line? Your kids can find far better ways to spend their time.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
