Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this series is brimming with fantasy violence -- including hand-to-hand battles, laser shooting, and objects getting ignited -- even if the heroes never suffer lasting injuries as a result. Although one of the four main characters is very smart, his intelligence is dismissed by the others, and the team relies on fighting to solve problems. Scary alien and robotic enemies and concepts like vaporizing and abducting other characters rule this one out for the youngest viewers. The show makes an attempt to teach about impulsiveness and accepting responsibility for poor judgment, but the good messages are lost amid the flashy violence.

Sexual Content

Female characters sport breast-enhancing, cleavage-baring outfits.


Frequent cartoon violence includes punches, kicks, laser blasts, hurling fireballs, and falling from great heights. Robotic characters are often incinerated. None of the violence results in lasting injury to humans. Occasionally there's talk of "terminating" an enemy.


Occasional use of words like "stupid" and "dumb."

Social Behavior

The lone female among the four heroes is strong and altruistic, but her strength and determination often come across as bossiness that's mocked by the guys. One character often makes light of life-and-death situations by cracking jokes. The four rely on teamwork and respect each other's abilities, and repercussions of recklessness and poor decision making are demonstrated.
