Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (16):

MIGHTY MED has a lot to offer kids: action, adventure, and a standout example of friendship between Kaz and Oliver. The two couldn't be less alike, but Oliver's stoic deliberateness is the perfect complement to Kaz's fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants approach to every situation, and when one runs into (or causes) trouble, the other is there to pick up the pieces. Even in its sanitized sitcom state, their relationship reminds kids that even imperfect parts can join to form a very strong whole.

But as great as that is, it's not what will attract kids to Mighty Med. Quirky superheroes, hilarious mishaps, and an emergency room filled with medical equipment like a "web untanglizer" and a "molecular devaporizer" promise plenty of laughs, all of them well deserved for a creative new spin in the oft-traveled superhero genre. It also doesn't hurt that the two stars are recognizable faces from previous Disney shows (Good Luck Charlie for Perry; A.N.T. Farm for Short), promising a pool of existent fans.
