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.

Terrible.

Don’t ever watch this and waste a second of your time.

fascinating

Younger children might be upset or traumatized by the cliffhanger endings, particularly if something terrible has happened to them. Having said that, this show is brighter in both tone and outlook than many of today's science fiction shows, especially given the bright colors, and with more dialogue too. The dialogue actually makes the pace of the show, at least in some ways, faster than many of today's science fiction shows. The locales are fascinating as well. And the visuals, as well as the special effects, while dated, are actually superior to some of what's done today. I would recommend this show very highly.
