Having humans getting eaten is not kid friendly no matter how you view it as

This show, not only is it a rip off of Star Wars and Monster vs Aliens(an actual good child friendly movie where no one gets killed) but im sorry to say, but this is not meant for children and it's actually because of few certain scenes, despite being off-screen, kids will know exactly what is happening and is quite gruesome. There's a certain minor villain the Neckross king(who's essentially Jabba the Hutt) he keeps a blood thirsty pet called a Skorpulua that he feeds aliens and yes even humans in this series! There was a minor villain called Stephanie who just kidnaps the protagonists, nothing too horrible or bad and yet, at the end of episode 8, the Neckross King, kills her by actually feeding her to this creature, just because he can, you got to realize she was a human being, not just some random alien, it wasn't played off by laughs and the music and sound effects were quite horrifying, enough to give your kids below 8 some pretty horrific nightmares. He also feeds many many other humans and a couple of aliens to it as well. This is just one of the many types of deaths you'd encounter in this series. Just because you put deaths offscreen doesn't mean your kid won't know what's going on, this show is meant for an older audience, not just because of the violence in it, but there is many cases of people explicitly have sexual intercourse, off-screen of course, but you knows it obviously sex and the fact that the story itself is way too complicated than most live action series. Your kid WILL loose interest or be scared to play another episode.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 11+

Language is present

I think the show is cheesy, but my kids have enjoyed it. Unfortunately, some language ("da**") popped up in the Rebel Magic part 2 episode during the preview for the next episode, "Friend or Foe." With that said, the word mentioned was not in "Friend or Foe," and there were no other issues.

This title has:

Too much swearing
