If there's one thing Christian children's shows all have in common, a majority of them have an episode budget of about 100 dollars and have a main character that has a love of doing Christian things so strong that no real kid can relate.
Gerbert fits this example to a T. He claims he loves reading his bible and going to church. However, when I was a kid, most kids I knew hated being at church and the ones that did had a mother like the lady from Jesus camp and a dad like Ned Flanders.
I haven't seen too many episodes of gerbert, but they give off the impression that all kids can be easily programmed. One of the episodes I've seen, Gerbert is suckered into giving a neighbourhood kid a dollar to join a secret club which doesn't exist. When gerbert admits he's been tricked to an adult, she tells him to go back to this kid and say he's not happy, and wants his dollar back. Believe me, I've tried that before. In a real show, Gerbert would either get beat up or the kid would lie. he wouldn't just give up the dollar like he does.
Heck, even Gerbert lies at the beginning of each episode. He says "We're really gonna have a good time!" 3/10
