Seems ok until you watch more of it

So most people haven't seen many episodes of this and are giving incorrect reviews, there have been scenes like in the Punk Concert episode that features girls flirting with girls and holding hands, the younger male characters wearing shorts or smacking older characters on the butt while "moshing" or even landing on another person face and rubbing his butt on the characters face. I've seen other episodes that have questionable relationships shown too much in detail, I have nothing against same sex (I am gay) but this is not for younger kids, there are slight sexual references and it goes a little further than PG-13, I wouldn't say it's bad for a teen to watch but anyone under 14 should not be watching this show. There's also more violence and unprovoked assault in this than other shows (not really graphic or bloody but not really something a little kid should be picking up things from) It doesn't show nudity or fully talk about sex, but it's about teen level hints being dropped.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7):
Kids say (19):

Rooted in Latin American folklore and culture, this buddy adventure keeps viewers guessing about what kinds of thrills its two stars will dig up next. Their mismatched personalities give Victor and Valentino different viewpoints on their shared predicaments, with impulsive Victor generally dismissive of risks and Valentino eager to adhere to rules and cautions. As the events play out, it always takes a combined effort and a little creative strategizing to undo whatever chaos they've caused.

Victor and Valentino isn't intended to be an educational series, but viewers will gain some familiarity with aspects of Latin American culture because of the show's setting and involvement of customs like quinceañera, alebrijes, and soccer in the stories themselves. It's also a fun pick for kids who are interested in the idea of the supernatural but aren't ready for edgier, scarier shows of the same ilk.
