Comic duo's horror parody is dark, unpredictable, and weird.

Strange tales maybe too strange for some viewers

I watch this show weekly. They're pretty decent for the 17+ age group. Some of the content is very iffy, in my view for my younger teen, though. Things that are not so visible, are very much suggested, in these strange tales.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Tim and Eric's unique style is an acquired taste, and not everyone will be sold on it. This is true in their focused comedy work as well as in this new hybrid of humor and horror, which intentionally keeps viewers unsettled and often vacillates between mildly disturbing concepts and more in-your-face violence.

In other words, much as in their previous series, you never really know what you're in for when you watch Bedtime Stories. It could be merely a parody of neighborhood life with a dark side, or it could be an all-out nightmare come true. If theirs is a style that tickles your fancy, though, you won't be disappointed in this new stretch of their talents.

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.
