Different than most shows in the education genre.
Finally, a show that speaks up to kids with a normal volume for character dialogue. It's hard to find shows like that now.
The humor is really good, too. It takes the method of defying expectations, and is ACTUALLY funny. Plus, the show actually has seasonal plotlines, so it's very interesting to follow. Whether the episode is just filler or it contributes to the plot, you'll be sure to enjoy it.
Kids will be sure to enjoy Odd Squad, and adults can watch too! Unlike other shows, Odd Squad isn't really so educational it's annoying. The acting is really good, the writing is really good...I'd recommend that you at least give it a chance. I myself watch Odd Squad, and I'm clearly out of the age demographic.
Plus, it will make kids feel like they're watching a cool show that adults watch, but the show is entirely appropriate.
Now, I save this for last because I always believe it shouldn't be the deciding factor in whether a piece of media is good or not, but the show has good diversity.
Violence? Yeah...there's a good amount. But, it's still a kids' show, so there's nothing too graphic. And the shipping is all in the fandom, so you don't have to worry about that either.
Obviously, there's no swearing.
Okay, well, in the show, no products are ever really put in. In the show, there's only one company, Shmumbers. It's actually a monopoly. And a fake company.
The actual show has some merchandise, but it's all either clothes or home decor, you'd be lucky to get your hands on an authentic badge or costume. Those are only given out at really special events. Merchandise can be found on the PBS KIDS online store or fineartamerica.com. There are also tote bags and posters and stuff, so...yeah. But no toys or anything. That, in itself, I think, inspires kids to make their own gadgets out of household material -- er, with their parents' permission, of course -- instead of spending money on new toys.
Not to mention, all the music is amazing.
