THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING is as much a tale of destiny and human relationships as it is an entertaining blend of suspense, drama, and a modern-day take on Egyptian mythology. Each relationship within the story is multi-faceted, from the complex uncertainties between Brian and his father to the emotional connection shared by Chloe and her adoptive mother, who just might be harboring secrets of her own. Chloe's struggles to relate her new sense of destiny with the life she's always known also offer a jumping-off point for parents and teens to talk about personal goals as well as healthy relationships.

This show is a fun way to introduce your teens to the subject of mythology, perhaps inspiring their interest -– and your own -– in the subject. Overall, the characters model responsible teen relationships, sex is more a point of discussion than of action, and Chloe and her mom share an admirable bond that encourages honest communication. The show does center on villains' attempts to kill a heroine nine times over, so violence is an issue, but what exists suits the content and won't affect teens. Add to that some good vibes about finding strength in the qualities that make you different, and you've got a well-rounded show that's lots of fun for parents and teens to enjoy together.
