Too romantic

First episode all about romance and crushes and “hotties”
age 8+

There some sexual innuendos and some suggestive dialogue.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (24 ):
Kids say (40 ):

The show's mature humor and high school characters entertain older kids and preteens. Kim's parents, Dr. and Dr. Possible (Gary Cole and Jean Smart), show up at all the right times.

Because it's kids' programming on the Disney Channel, the show presents some good lessons. But lessons may get muddled and nearly lost as the heroes shimmy up rope ladders dangling from helicopters and dodge spinning tops of doom. As long as you're not expecting too much in the way of educational value, you'll probably have plenty of fun with this one.

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.
