"Viewer beware.... You're in for a scare!!!"
Browsing on Netflix and I came across this, oh what a blast from the past this was, decided to watch the first episode and when the opening credit music played... I felt like a kid again! My eldest was itching to watch this, so once I ascertained that it wasn't too spooky or over the top I let the kids watch and they have been hooked ever since. Compared to some of the shows that the family has watched these are light horror (though one child did jump a few times during one episode) and there is no gore, compared to kids shows today this is very light.
One thing I have really liked rewatching this series is the gender balance, although the "bad guys" are still all males, when it comes to the lead characters it's pretty even in being a female lead one episode, male lead the next and a few combinations thrown in throughout and the girls get into just as much trouble and danger as the boys, bring back a kids show like this please! Whilst I don't think I have seen any of these child actors since, there was one very recognizable even at that young age, Ryan Gosling!!
The kids are hooked, it provides the scares without actually scaring them, it's cheesy but doesn't feel too over the top and a great gender balance. The kids are already onto season two.
