Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Monica the Medium features a college-age psychic who claims to speak to the dead. There are references to violent deaths, lots of discussions about dating, some mild innuendo, and some non-obvious drinking. Divorce is discussed. It's pretty mild viewing, but people who are uncomfortable with conversations about death or psychic ability may find it disturbing.
Is It Any Good?
The entertainingly voyeuristic series combines the drama from emotional reads with the ups-and-downs that come with college life. But the show takes this one step further and uses eerie music and special effects to overemphasize the moments Monica is communicating with people from the beyond.
Thanks to the exaggerated moments, sometimes it's a little cheesy. But Monica is extremely likable, and her desire to help people adds a bit of charm to the show. As a result, even if you don't believe in this sort of thing, you may find it appealing.
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.
