Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The premise is unique and pays off oddly well, especially being presented as a horror-comedy. The main character actively rejecting motherhood and babies in a world where everyone does the exact opposite is a nice contrast in The Baby. Suspense and witty dialogue will have viewers laughing one moment and creeped out the next. The baby symbolism of being a sort of host/parasite is also an interesting touch.

The blood and creepy atmosphere might make squeamish younger viewers uncomfortable. But overall, the show balances this with absurdity and humor, which could make it a lighter, fun watch for teens.
