I am a grandmother who spent two hours watching spy ninja with 6 and 8 year old boys. I was appalled by the violence. Although no one is hurt in the video to have the characters having a shot out in an auditorium is irresponsible. No wonder there is so much violence in USA. Kids go from nerf guns to real guns and real multiple deaths take place in movie theaters, stores, schools and churches. The entertainment agency at some point will have to assume responsibility for some of the violent deaths in America.

Supah Ninjas is Supah! :)

Supah Ninjas was really funny and I was super sad that it ended. I always watch it on Nick every day. It's super funny and the actors are really nice in real life. Ryan Potter was in Big Hero 6 and he was amazing and he was a great actor. Gracie and Carlos was not heard from (I actually don't know). But from what I have seen from them in Supah Ninjas they were really good. The ninjas show us that you don't use force to solve and arrest criminals, you need smarts and you have to be thinking calm and with some sense. I really hope they put this show back up. It's really good! tysm for reading!

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (10 ):
Kids say (26 ):

SUPAH NINJAS is a fast-paced show that inspires viewers to believe in the existence of heroes in the most unlikely places. Just as class outcast Mike discovers the inner strength he needs to assume his new role, parents can help kids begin to understand their own personal talents and how those gifts can be used to help others. Another bonus to the series is the well-rounded female lead role of Amanda, who's said to be a popularity queen but then follows her own heart and chooses to be friends with social fringe dwellers Mike and Owen.

Although the show's plot is rooted in martial arts and physical exchanges between the heroes and a rotating cast of bad guys are common, parents don't really need to worry about the content having a negative impact on young viewers. Even kids will be able to see that these battles are in fact a series of choreographed moves from truly skilled actors, and the fact that no one is ever the worse for wear greatly helps tone down the impact of the violence. All of that said, the show isn't likely to strike a chord with more worldly tweens, who may be turned off by the fairly cheesy acting.
