Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4 ):

LOCKIE LEONARD is a welcome alternative to most of today's American tween shows -- parents are likely to welcome its obvious lack of marketing tie-ins as much as its honest approach to teen woes like dating and coping with school bullies. Lockie is an average teen just trying to survive his formative years, and he would be unremarkable except for his general likability. Rather than being absorbed in video games or the silly antics of many of his TV peers, he's a devoted older brother, a loyal friend, and dedicated to his first love, surfing.

What this series lacks in flash, it makes up for in realistic content, and tweens will come away from it no worse for the wear. Need more reason to like it? The show is based on a book series by Tim Winton, so young fans can follow Lockie's escapades in their original written format, too.
