I'm an adult. I watched this show mostly out of curiosity because this is a spin-off from the famous Dr Who TV series. I didn't know exactly what to expect from this kid's show. I figured it will be similar to a typical children's educational show where I see Sarah Jane take kids to a magical adventure with cheap special effects, learning experiences, and some moral lectures to help them live a better life. I was wrong.

Sarah Jane Adventures are truly adventures for both kids and adults alike. It's not an educational show at all but a non-stop action adventure show that is geared more for the young teenager in mind. In many ways this show is more like a watered down version of the Dr Who TV series except Sarah Jane is her own version of Dr Who that takes kids through danger and adventure. But unlike Dr Who, all of her adventures are here on Earth not in time and space. Her assistance are kids and they feel cool and engaged being with an older woman that can be their grandmother. Adults will like this show too because the storyline is more dramatic than a typical kid's fairy tale story. All the good guys and supporting characters are portrayed realistically and the villains are realistically scary too but not too scary.

Sarah Jane is the original character from the famous Dr Who TV series way back in the 1970's. If fact, Sarah Jane Adventures is played by the original actor, Elisabeth Sladen. It's really cool that Sladen gets to play her original character in this TV show. I really liked this kid's show and I believe that many kids will love watching it. Sadly, Elisabeth Sladen recently passed away this year, 2011. She was only 65 years old.

I had seen some of the Sarah Jane Episodes before and liked it. So I was delighted to find it on Amazon's Prime Streaming Video. Admittedly, I should be considered to be too old to enjoy a program obviously targeting a younger age group; but I find it enjoyable to watch. I like that it has ties to the Dr. Who/Torchwood/Primeval BBC productions. The series, like the Dr. Who genera, is simply addictive. What's so great is that from the first season to the last, the stories are very good, the special effects are very good etc. I don't understand why BBC shows are so much more immaginative and better produced than the fare fed to the American public (made for children). The acting is so much more polished than what I've chanced upon when flipping channels on Saturdays. And Yes, the vocabulary/language usage is so much less insulting than what is usually heard on broadcast television now-a-days, which adds to the enjoyment of watching the series.

Great for old or new Doctor Who fans, and a great introduction to the genre for younger viewers. The protagonists in these stories are about 14 years old, and the situations, while tense, are not nearly as scary as most of the Doctor Who, so I would recommend this episode for viewers under 12. Of course, it is great fun for older kids and adults too, especially if you are already a Doctor Who fan or if you love the Sci-Fi genre. It's geared toward the younger set, but it has plenty of good problem-solving and situations with life-lessons. The bane could be a little scary for little ones, but the heroes triumph in the end!

After seeing the Doctor Who Episode where Sara Jane Smith was reintoduced, I Followed the show with my family but did not realize that there was a Season 0. When I saw it available on Amazon I had to buy it. It truly makes a difference to see how the story was first prestented as the pilot.

I am admitedly a huge Dr. Who fan. So the fact that this is a spin off makes me a little bias. Yes its a goofy show thats meant more fot the kids in England, but its still fun and has some of the same character as Dr. Who.

Really like this 'spin-off' of Doctor Who. You can tell it was made for kids more than adults but I really enjoyed it. Well made and well acted. This is my go-to while waiting for new season of the Doctor...

Sarah Jane Adventures are supposedly aimed at children and most of the main actors are children but if you like Dr. Who and understand where Sarah Jane is coming from then you'll like the Sarah Jane Adventures.
