Gravity Falls follows the adventures of twins Dipper and Mabel in the mysterious forest of Gravity Falls, Oregon, where they’re sent for the summer to live with their annoying relative, Grunkle Stan. Dipper and Mabel use every chance they get to explore their new surroundings.
Although Dipper and Mabel take different views on the nature of their adventures and have differing opinions about almost everything, when push comes to shove, their sibling bond kicks in and they become a team. As far as the show’s content goes there’s nothing to worry about but, in many ways, Gravity Falls is a cleverly written series with humor that will be better appreciated by older kids and teens rather than by young kids. Because of its fast pace and content that often assumes a certain amount of life experience from viewers some characterizations will go unnoticed by a younger audience. The monsters that feature in the show might scare small kids sensitive to that sort of thing.
As a 16 year old that doesn’t really like nor watch animated series’, I found Gravity Falls to be funny and suitable for my age. You can get a good laugh out of this show. I was initially skeptical about the commercials for Gravity Falls however. The concept had been used before and the jokes seemed boring, but once I started watching my whole perspective of the show changed and I ended up laughing constantly.
Overall I would give this a rating of 8 out of 10. It’s a fun and entertaining show to watch. I recommend you watch the series premiere on 10 November on the Disney Channel.
