Nice and creative teen drama for boys

I really enjoyed this show as a child and I'm not even a guy! :D I like how it was creative with the society life and made it a little "spacey" since it took place on a space station. Also likes how it shows what it's like being teenage boy in such a realistic way , it's about it all; school, family, siblings, friends. It's very man dominated , but it's still has some famale seriousness , like a great story about his teacher, and that he has a very tough little sister and most important; he's mom is a captain on the space station! :) It's sad it's not rerunning on Disney Channel. I think it's a good show about growing up, especially for teenage boys. It has a great life moral in every episode.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

Although Lloyd in Space is set in the future, it's not about intergalactic battles or laser guns -- kids looking for fast-paced sci-fi adventure and edge-of-your-seat storylines won't find them here. Instead, by highlighting the challenges and rewards of being a teen, the show focuses on the universal experience of what it feels like to be caught between childhood and adulthood.

Lloyd may not be a typical hero, but his charm is found in the way viewers can identify with his gangly, insecure-but-big-hearted existence as a not-so-popular adolescent. In an entertainment world full of cool, glossy, and unrealistically perfect-looking teens, Lloyd is a fresh hero who will feel comfortingly familiar.
