Excellent show gathering Parents and Kids
30 November 2014 | by dvh97See all my reviews

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.
