Enjoyable but sometimes a bit too dark to be a kid's show
31 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

After seeing the premiere of the show, I thought it was rather good, so I continued watching it. It turned out to be pretty good, but sometimes I feel that with all the creepy mutants and the paralyzing and the guns and lasers and people getting hurt in ways that would probably break something that this show is a little too dark to be a kid's show, if you know what I mean. This is probably the darkest series Disney has ever made. Well, what with Disney being all kid-friendly, it's probably the ONLY dark series Disney has ever made.

It's got some good humor, but most of the jokes are kind of expected. Most of the funny moments are with Jason's half of the storyline in episodes, because Jason is sort of a major screw-up throughout the episode.

Otherwise, the acting is pretty good, I like how they keep T. Abner Hall in shadow throughout, S.T.A.N is thoroughly amusing, especially since he's a robot, and the fight sequences are impressive. However, the costumes leave something to be desired. In the first episode, Aaron asks S.T.A.N, "Do I look silly?" the first time we see him in his "uniform". When I watched that, I thought, "Yes. You look very, very silly." When I watch this I remember Power Rangers. I absolutely DESPISED Power Rangers. With their freakish costumes and going "Hi-yah!" and making weird noises when they fight, and the villains looking like they were made out of plastic (which they probably were), and the "monsters" obviously wearing costumes, and the plastic villains not moving their mouths when they talk, it was a pretty bad show. Aaron Stone is much better, no weird noises when fighting, no plastic villains, just normal action show stuff.

Anyways, I've kept you for long enough. Overall, it's a pretty good show, although some mothers may ban their kids from watching it because they are afraid it will give them nightmares.
