A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The main characters value friends, family, and saving the world. One African-American and one Jewish main character. Social cliques exist at the high school, and some kids reject others. Clever, sometimes sarcastic humor aiming for the middle-school set.
Violence & Scariness
Frequent action-hero violence, including hitting and kicking. Kim carries a device that looks like a gun but shoots a grappling hook.

Products & Purchases
Kim never goes anywhere without her high-tech handheld device. She has a computer in her locker and private jets, helicopters, jet skis, etc., at her disposal.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Kim is a good role model in that she's smart and independent, but her profession makes for a surprisingly violent cartoon. Some episodes involve family, but mostly Kim and Ron operate in their own dangerous world. Villains are as goofy as they are treacherous and probably won't scare kids. Some women and men characters are drawn quite voluptuously, including Kim, whose outfits always show her navel.
Is It Any Good?
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.
