Protagonist is not a good role model

Honestly its not a bad show. It does show the attitudes of the teens pretty well. However the protagonist Wendy is fake. She is made out to be a kind and caring girl who is very righteous, and everyone loves her. But she is a very passive aggressive girl who thinks she knows best. There are 2 antagonists, Vanessa and Christian. However, I actually liked those characters better than Wendy, even though they are very very rude and down-right can be very mean, however, they are actually very truthful in their own uppity attitude. There is one specific episode that really gets my goat. She steals a horse, and at the end of the episode she is just forgiven and given a happy ending. Another issue I have with the character is the downright rudeness she presents to adults. Other than that its a good show despite the fake heroin. Definitely talk to your kids about some of the things she does and how she could have done something different. She is not a bad girl, just a normal teenager. But what she gets away with is wrong.

Is It Any Good?

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

This typical teen drama will definitely appeal to kids who love horses and the outdoors. With lots of different characters, including mean girls who try to get attention from boys, and undermine one another, it's not always positive, but there are also characters who stand up for themselves and look out for others. Since Wendy takes place on a horse ranch, drama usually involves riding and horses on some level; but it's a relatively mild series that animal lovers should enjoy.
