Average sci-fi thriller is too violent for kids.

Is It Any Good?

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

Despite a great group of actors and decent writing, Threshold doesn't move beyond average sci-fi fare. That doesn't mean it's not entertaining, especially for fans of the genre, but viewers looking for something really special should go elsewhere.

The shadow-lit scenes, ominous music and split-second negative-image shots all contribute to the show's generally tense and forbidding tone. Frequent scenes showing blood and violence, including people being shot and chased with an ax, as well as people being pursued or scared, make this a show that younger kids and sensitive folks of all ages should probably avoid.

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.
