Aliens + action, but tame enough for young tweens.

Unnecessary, Inappropriate Language

My 7 yo son is watching the 2nd episode and a character just said, "What the Hell?" I'm allowing him to continue watching it, but I'm keeping a close eye. Now, they just said, "Stupid" twice. Why must that language be used? I wonder what their target audience age is???

Wasn't expecting that.....

I was letting my 4 year old soon to be 5 year old watch this show. I wasn't paying attention and p e of the characters says " what the hell". I had to go back and rewind it to make sure that's what he said. And after that I won't let my son watch it. It's ok for older kids but 6+ is pushing it, I'd say 8+

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (4 ):

This series is a good choice if your tween is at the transition point between bare-bones kids' cartoons and those with a little more action and fantasy. While it does broach the subject of aliens existing unnoticed alongside average civilians, the bright CG-animation style and confident tween characters keep the overall mood light and non-threatening. There's an element of comedy in nearly everything the heroes do, which leaves little time for kids to get scared about the idea of aliens.

That said, there's still a fair amount of violence in the show, and all four of the tween heroes use laser guns and cannons to blast away at their enemies, who eventually succumb in explosions or -- in the case of robotic foes -- dismemberment. The fact that the kids are never hurt is comforting, but, on the flip side, the show's fantasy nature does nothing to emphasize the consequences of such violence in the real world.
