Is It Any Good?

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

Billed as a romantic comedy, this lackluster series falls short on both love and laughs. The show's focus is on the Valentine family rather than on the characters working to find love, so there's not enough heartwarming content to appeal to viewers seeking a romance. Plus, the cast seems poorly matched and unnatural in their semi-ethereal roles, and the mediocre writing doesn't do them any favors, either.

But ultimately, Valentine suffers most from its inability to appeal to a clearly defined audience. Teens and adults will quickly tire of the unremarkable acting and predictable plot, and the show isn't a great choice for tweens since racy sexual content (couples making out, references to sexual encounters, etc.) is always a possibility. What's more, the fact that one of the gods personifies Erotic Love and administers surges of physical desire from a gun sends iffy messages to tweens and teens about the line between love and lust and how confusing the two could negatively affect a relationship.
