Wow what a show.
9 January 2011 | by garrett815See all my reviews

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.
