Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

A main cast with what feels like genuine affection between them turns what could have been "English Silicon Valley" into something sweeter and more relatable. The Cat Factory lads -- and lads is what they feel like, despite the cast's 30-something age range -- are given to tech-bro-ish actions like hiring a barbershop quartet to croon "suck my balls" at rivals, or buying a palatial new mansion and riding scooters in the halls. But they're also cluelessly looking for love -- and validation -- in all kinds of places. Josh, who celebrates his cash infusion by buying a pair of new jeans, offers a round-the-world trip to his parents and tries to get back with his old girlfriend. Leon, he of the candy-apple-red new Ferrari, drives on over to his old high school to confront a teacher who didn't think he had a future. Ewan is so pixilated by his newfound bank balance that he accidentally gives £18,000 bonuses to all the employees.

The women of Loaded, meanwhile, are fully realized forces to be reckoned with. Casey (who tells her new employees to think of her like a sexy Darth Vader) barks demands and takes no prisoners; her chatty assistant, Naomi (Lolly Adefope), alternates between efficiency and letting her freak flag fly; and Josh's gamer ex-girlfriend, Abbi (Aimee-Ffion Edwards), gives Josh the kind of spiky feedback that's rare in real life -- and a pleasure to watch on TV. There are messages to be absorbed here about wealth and how it changes things; work, and what it's worth. But on the surface, this series is lovable and fun, the sort of thing that parents might want to watch with kids who dream about striking it rich in tech.

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.
