Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Stargirl is a fun series about a young superhero from the DC Comics universe (Brec Bassinger). It has lots of both teen drama and fantasy violence -- including car crashes, explosions, and people being thrown across rooms, stabbed, and more (bloody wounds are visible). Language can also be strong, with words like "ass," "hell," "bitch," and "crap." A young woman is called a "slut" by school bullies. Boyfriends and dating are mentioned. Adults drink alcohol on occasion. A vintage Cadillac is featured throughout the series, and logos for products like Smart Water and Ocean Spray are displayed prominently. The show offers positive gender representation and has themes of courage, curiosity, perseverance, and teamwork.
Is It Any Good?
This fun series, based on a newer DC character, offers all the expected comic-style heroics plus a healthy dose of teen angst. Courtney Whitmore is young, energetic, and doesn't always listen, but she also doesn't shy away from standing up for what she believes is right. Her new role as a superhero gives her a larger sense of purpose, but it's the relationship with her stepfather that makes her journey all the more interesting. The tension created by some of the villains' high school-aged progeny also adds to the fray. Overall, Stargirl tells a fresh, fun story, and is an entertaining addition to the DC Comics TV universe.
