Violent, shoot ‘em up

My kids wanted me to watch this show to see if it was ok for them to watch. Good grief! First of all, there’s zero plot. Just a bunch of shoot ‘em up and explosions and trash talking. Heavy focus on decepticons POV (negative, evil, etc.) and they are backstabbing and obviously no t good role models. This show is a big fat no for our home.

It’s a really good positive show

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This series shrugs off continuity with previous Transformers titles and creates its own timeline, so it's a good point of entry for viewers who are new to the quick-change characters first introduced in the '80s. Impulsive, comical Bumblebee continues to be a favorite among these likable robots, but a very welcome change to the franchise's productions comes in the form of a female character taking center stage. Happily she is whip-smart and courageous, and can more than hold her own among her male counterparts on the battlefield.

As is typical of the Transformers series, the two biggest concerns in Transformers: Cyberverse are violence and marketing. If your kids are susceptible to wanting the action figures that correspond to their favorite shows, then these tie-ins might be a concern for you. As for the violence, while it dominates the heroes' exchanges with the Decepticons (and thus is a good chunk of the show), it's not likely to upset kids because of the overall fantasy nature of the series.
