A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Silverpoint is a mystery for tweens and younger teens that centers around an unknown object that kids find outside of the boundaries of their summer camp. Some slight scares and odd occurrences, but nothing too frightening or violent here. When older teens sneak away from camp to have a party, they appear to be drinking beer, though the cans aren't marked. Perilous situations include falling from heights, near drowning, being chased. Supernatural themes include UFOs and teleportation. Character strengths of teamwork and integrity are highlighted.
Great choice for families looking for a sci-fi adventure that will entertain and inspire them.

What's the Story?
In SILVERPOINT, a group of young teens discovers that a fellow camper has taken off in the middle of the night. But when they cross through a fence marked "Danger," they find their friend -- and a mysterious force that levitates objects off of the ground. Curious, they return to the spot and begin to explore the force that's causing strange things to happen. What will they discover? Who -- or what -- is behind the creepy things happening beyond the fence?
Is It Any Good?
Mild, to-the-point, action-packed and mysterious, this show engages while avoiding disturbing or violent territory. Silverpoint is set at a summer camp; there are hammocks and archery bullseyes aplenty, which lends a festive, but vibe. The characters are on the go, throwing themselves into solving a paranormal mystery.
It's not the strongest, most complex show out there, but it will appeal to tweens or younger teens who want to watch Stranger Things, but are too young or too skittish to do so. Parents won't mind bingeing with their tweens while paying bills or folding laundry -- it's easy viewing for multitaskers.
