Our review:
Parents say (11 ):
Kids say (24 ):

Decent writing and appealing actors breathe a bit of life into this artificial and cliched sitcom, which feels much like a throwback to Disney Channel series from the early 2000s. Characters are glossy, mannered, and throw rehearsed quips at each other in lieu of actually relating -- nothing here can be mistaken for authentic. And yet, young viewers who are in search of a feather-light entertainment experience with a modern wish-fulfillment angle may be captivated anyway.

Social media influencers are the movie stars of Generation Z, there's no doubt about it, and many a tween has hatched a few fantasies about spending time with their favorite Instagrammer or YouTuber. And with her super-chic outfits and glossy hair (as well as the sweetness that frequently pokes through her media-savvy personality) Bryana Salaz makes an attractive faux celebrity. The Team Kaylie cast is also a bit cooler than the ones found on early-naughties Disney Channel: diverse not just in race, gender, and ethnicity, but also in terms of class, body type, and gender presentation. Team Kaylie can't be mistaken for great art. But in terms of guilty-pleasure tween TV, it's at least a step in the right direction.
