Fun, but don't compare it to Dr. Who, 18 October 2009
Author: dareshiranu from United States

A fun show, no question. But what Dr. Who should have been? What the original focus of the old Dr. Who was? Really, did you drink the koolaid? Just because children can enjoy a show does not indicate that they are the target audience. It seems fairly obvious today that they are not the current demographic with the exception of TSJA. I actually enjoy all three shows, for a variety of reasons. But basically TSJA is a show at its heart aimed at children and perhaps tweens at best. Families are not a target audience, subsets of families are. It hasn't been the 50's for fifty years, too many people still act like the standards of behavior were graven in stone about then and any deviation from that perceived pinnacle of cultural development is somehow a degradation of that "perfection". The show is designed to entertain, be entertained. Or watch something else. Like Howdy Doody Reruns.
