Good TV show

An amazing show not as good as tns but still good. Some storylines are dark. Someone gets depressed and someone's mum commits suicide. 12 and up

Great family show!

My daughters and I really enjoyed watching this show together. It appeals to kids 7+ up to adults. The show has "drama" without any sexy-stuff and nothing too mature... characters may kiss for a brief moment, but that's it. Touches on some difficult topics (like suicide, gang activity, depression)- without going too deep. Does a good job making children aware of these issues, but without going too far in depth. Gives a perfect opportunity for families to discuss these tough topics further together...

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (8 ):

This quality drama will entice tweens with its attractive cast and the engrossing evolution of their many relationships. It's pretty soapy; there are love triangles everywhere you turn and emotional backstories that complicate the characters' friendships (and sometimes rivalries). It's a complex web of personalities, rivalries, successes, and failures, and it's easy to get caught up in all the goings-on. But even with all the teen issues at play, Lost & Found Music Studios is mostly appropriate for tweens, and the messages are mostly positive and self-affirming, emphasizing the value of friendship and the healing power of self-expression through music.

And speaking of music, viewers are treated to numerous musical performances on the show, both solo and group and representing many different styles. They also get a sense of what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to writing and performing music, and it illustrates the link between emotions and music.
