Awesome Show

I was hesitant at first to watch this as there wasn’t too many good reviews about the show but it was definitely a really awesome series to watch. For younger viewers it can be to gory at times but if your child is okay with seeing some gore and light kissing then it is a great show for them to watch.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 14+

Not as mature as the college setting would imply

Showed up as TV MA so I watched it myself - Not as mature as the college setting would imply. Watched it with my 15 year old daughter subsequently and it was fine for her. Fast paced witchcraft/urban fantasy with good adult characters as well in the form of the Grandad and the mentor/professor.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (15):

It's tough to smash this many genres together without getting a little messy, and that's exactly what happens with this series. By blending fantasy elements with comedy, suspense, and college drama, it never sticks with a single plotline, style, mystery, or whatever else long enough to really dig in. That said, the show's energy and barrage of ideas is entertaining, and the show isn't afraid to take strange, unexpected turns at surprising times. It might not be able to fully stick the landing, but if The Order can keep moving at this ferocious rate, it might not have to.
