Wow what a show.

10/10
Author: Tom G from United States

Just finished watching the first season of Tower Prep with my kids. It was incredibly entertaining. It was action packed, adventure oriented, with mysterious suspense. It was a fantasy and a sci-fi. It incorporated a love triangle, school rivalries, hazing, bullies, and fraternity initiations. It even brought forth some interesting bits of history and wove itself around tales such as Homer's Odyssey, the Red Baron, 50's Dances, the first series of computers, etc. The acting was superb. It was so fun to watch that we all couldn't wait for the next episode. Luckily I DVRed the series so we could watch 3 to 4 episodes back to back. We would have gone crazy trying to wait a whole week between shows. It is a great family friendly show that appeals to all ages. My children 6 and 8 couldn't get enough, my nephew in college loves it, my niece in high school enjoys it. My wife and I are in our 40s and thought it was great. I would recommend this show to anyone. Whether you like a bit of romance, drama, action, martial arts, mystery, suspense, cutting edge science, fantasy, history, etc. this show will have something for you.

Hurts without an ending

The first few episodes moved far too slow. But the latter opens, when they were focused on escaping, were great. The acting is OK - I didn't find the characters themselves too interesting or relatable. The real redeeming element was the mysterious story line. I kept wondering how it would all get explained at the end because it was so far fetched and strange. The twists were indeed interesting. Each episode peeled back a layer, often only leaving more questions.

Also, it reminds me a bit of Harry Potter.

If you are OK with not understanding anything by the last released episode, go for it.

i'll like to see a second season of tower prep to know what else happen to the characters and how the story unfold. the ended left me a little clueless but i felled in love with the show its self i will like tower prep to make a second season.As well as many to come kid getting kidnapped from there home because the special abilities.i also think it was great for kids as well as teens and adults and should be showed on mtv where it rated should increase at a very high rate. the reason for the low rating is because of the time the show came on kids n teens had to go the sleep to got school so they didn't even know the tower prep even was a show.they should promote the show better next time hopefully it will be a next time or a second season.

Excellent show gathering Parents and Kids

9/10
Author: David Vee from Belgium

Despite the pilot episode's low production values, this show has the potential to screw the whole family to the screen. It has a clever mix of fantasy, intrigues, action, love/friendship that will drive you trough the episodes you won't realize you spent 40 minutes watching when you reach the end credits. Each character is endearing. Even the bad guys. Despite the impression induced prison at the beginning of the series, the universe created within Tower Prep is as attractive as a well-known school of magic. And every kid would like to discover more about how to improve his skills, his special power. It is very sad there won't be a second season. And it is unfair this show was canceled because of lower audience due to the bad schedule.
