Christian values?

I only watched the first 10 minutes or so but turned it off when the villain of the 2 main boys was in control of their actions and made them kiss. We are trying to instill good Christian values and are finding it very difficult to find appropriate things to watch. Up to that point it seemed to be a funny show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Tween boys plus time manipulation are a recipe for fun, but this series misses the opportunity to make the characters' experiences mean something worthwhile. Every new spin on the same day brings more absurd escapades and trouble for those around the boys. In some cases that means bullies get their due or impossibly boring classes take a backseat to adventures of the boys' own making; in others it means their plans need another tweak or two to be full-on outrageous.

But despite opportunities aplenty for Luc and Theo to realize the error of their ways and make better choices, they never do. Instead, Looped plays up the fun of never facing consequences for your actions, which just inspires the characters to raise the bar the next time around. Tack on the frequent bathroom humor -- including a repulsive recurring form of kid-induced torture called a "fart box" -- and this series falls short of meaningful entertainment for kids.

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.
