Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

The show's plots are minimal and simplistic at best. Characters are momentarily endangered, then rescued, and the enemy is always defeated. The real value of the show, for parents, lies in the chance to let fairly young kids watch a little action without worrying about any significant violence, gore, or sexual content -- or, if you watch it on Boomerang, commercials. It's a basic comic book-come-to-life-style show that can be very exciting for kids who haven't been exposed to many of today's flashier programs.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
