Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that these episodes provide lots of action, plus a surprisingly mature swipe at the snobbery of high society, and a heroic portrait of a corporate whistle-blower. But because of its cartoonish violence and mayhem, this video is questionable for children under 8. Older children will better comprehend the stories, and will be better able to deal with the sometimes nasty violence. Teens and adults will appreciate the clever dialogue and in-jokes.
