Great family show.

I love this show. One of my favorite thing is, the children are dressed like children should. They look stylish, while covering everything they should. I didn't see any sexualized characters which is rare for TV today. I think it has great lessons, it is more centered around middle school kids and problems they can face so it might be more suitable or better understood by that age group. It still has good basic lessons for everyone though. The young characters provide decent role models aside from maybe Tess in the beginning, but her character develops and she grows a lot. Raven and Chelsea are their same silly selves and it's nice. I enjoy that they show parents making their lives work through divorce while maintaining a friendship. Can't wait for the next season!

One of Disney's favorite leading ladies makes a triumphant return to the screen in this spin-off that's excellent family entertainment. That's So Raven fans will find plenty more of what they loved about the original series in this sharply written sitcom that plays up the woes of adulting and tween trials in a surprisingly great balance. And now not only is Raven inspired to knee-jerk reactions to her visions, but her son is learning to cope with his unexpected new power as well, all to predictably hilarious results.

Physical comedy, hyperbole, quirkiness, and Raven-Symoné's remarkable charisma on-screen account for a lot of Raven's Home's appeal, but this isn't a superficial show. Many of its more subtle characteristics stand out as well, in particular the way it presents Raven and Chelsea's unique family structure. It's nontraditional and chaotic at times, but it works for them, and that's what matters, both in the real world and in the notoriously challenging endeavor of appealing to viewers of different ages. Happily Raven's Home hits the mark, putting itself in deserved contention for families' attention.
