Knight Squad is one of the best Nick shows out there.

I love the show Knight Squad. I think Prudence and Ciara are the best in terms of role models and Arc is okay to. I think kids will like this show more than adults. Definitely a must watch.

This show is fine. OK. Its a little stupid as the potty humor goes far. The actors are great and I think their great Role Models. In the first episode The teacher talks about have a metal Right butt cheek. Its a little stupid. The jokes are crumby and the set up is strange. Having a knight school with idiotic children. Hmmm.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

A strong female lead and two underdog hopefuls challenging stereotypes and boundaries give this fantasy-based series potential, but it's far too campy to really impress. The sets and costumes are hokey at best, and the general overacting quickly wears thin. Younger kids may enjoy Arc's boyish good looks and his rapport with Ciara, but their unlikely friendship isn't enough to carry the whole show.

What stands out instead is the casual stance Knight Squad seems to take on the mutual dishonesty of the two main characters, who knowingly break rules to follow their dreams. While on one hand it reminds kids that their own dreams should know no limits (a good thing), it also makes light of their deception to do so (less good). The bottom line? This corny show entertains with silliness and physical humor, but there are better options with more substance for kids who love fantasy stories.
