Very good

It is a good entry level series for Super hero storylines. There are some deaths but not allow and not gory.
age 12+


This is a fun super hero show with its story steeped in the Golden Age of DC Comics that starts a little slow, but after a few episodes, really takes off! There are some dark moments and bloody violent scenes as season 1 progresses, and you really start to see the stakes being raised when one innocent child is killed a few episodes in while Stargirl is fighting a villain. Also, some of the themes such as texting inappropriate pictures and the consequences of that are shown. And the language can be rough at times, especially when some of the villains speak up. So this isn't for younger children. But, overall, this is a fairly lighthearted and fun show that should be good entertainment for everyone 12+. Come on season 2! Hopefully the CW doesn't ruin this one.
