: * * * * What Parents Should Know
: Parents need to know that this comedy series aimed at tweens -- starring Victoria Justice from "Zoey 101" -- actively promotes its partner website called TheSlap.com – a social network that allows viewers to follow blogs from the characters, play games, and post comments. Not only is the site referenced numerous times throughout each episode (characters’ postings provide segues between scenes, for example), there are also direct appeals to viewers to visit the site. Parents should be prepared for tweens asking to go online after or during the show. That said, the remaining content is mostly tween-friendly – save for some lengthy kisses between one teen couple – and Tori is a decent role model, contrasting some of her classmates’ eccentricities with her self-confidence and adherence to her personal values. - Common Sense Media
