Loved it from START TO FINISH!! The actors feel fresh and the story is something unlike anything on TV now! I can't remember laughing this hard during a kid's show since the old Nick shows I loved as a kid. I also love that you have a girl lead in a science show! What a great message to young girls and how topical. The girl who plays Jo is a star for sure and would love to see more of her.

There is something honest and frankly "not Disney" about this show - that is okay to fail, or as Wolfie says "fail forward," and that we often learn the most through our failures. #BravoAmazon

I thought it was extremely well executed and the only question I have is, will there be more episodes?!?

Inventive, educational, entertaining, and funny! It's exceptionally rare to find these attributes in kid's programming today and even rarer to find all of them in a single show. My kids can't wait for the next episode.

As an executive, investor, and entrepreneur, constantly in search of talented engineers and technologists and keenly aware of the shortages of both today, it is incredibly important that we cultivate in a our children a love, and interest in, science, technology, engineering, and math. Maker Shack Agency certainly does its part!

Please make this series!

Maker Shack Agency has the makings of a fantastic young adult series. This intelligent comedy is leaps and bounds ahead of other shows aimed at the target demographic. The dialogue is witty and intelligent ,never over-simplifying but, rather, elevating the comedy and trusting the viewer will understand. Not a dull moment; fast-paced with dry humor reminiscent of Mitchell Hurwitz (Arrested Development). I love the strong, female lead who shows that being smart and adept at science is cool.

My 8 and 10 year olds all love this show. They want to see more. Excellent message. Great characters. They have been talking non-stop about this show. I would love to see a full series made.

The show conveys creative science, interest, education, and curiosity that I know they absolutely love! Thank you very much Maker Shack Agency for your amazing show and really hope it becomes a series. Then Maker Shack Agency will be top-notch to many kids anywhere!

I watched this show with my 12 year-old daughter and 9 year-old son. My son really loved it and hopes they make more episodes. My daughter liked that it was a show centered around inventions, noting that there aren't any shows for their age group like this. We all laughed out loud during several parts, and as a parent, I felt like it offered the right mix of comedy and positive lessons. I also liked that the humor was not hokey or kiddish -- more in line with what my children and their friends laugh about together.

I stopped watching when a kid whipped together an electromagnet with a few winds of wire around a spoon and then started having magical powers to pull metal from across the room. If you're going to make a series like this, the science needs to be at least plausible. Some artistic license might be okay, sure, but that's completely misleading to kids about how electromagnets work and how powerful they are. It's ridiculous to see this stuff in a show that is supposed to be vaguely educational and wants "to inspire kids to think about new and different ways to solve life’s problems."

This review is from my 10 year old son and 7 year old daughter, who watched the show together and both loved it (big win in my book).

From the 10 year old: "Awesome! I loved watching a bunch of kids make really cool inventions. My favorite character is the programmer."

From the 7 year old: "It's really cool how they show kids being nice to people and working together to get the bully. The robot they made was really cool too. My favorite character is the girl who made that really cool robot."

I agree with the previous reviewer who mentioned that this show is distinctly un-Disney. Don't get me wrong, my kids enjoy a lot of shows on Disney XD, but my husband and I loved the "fail forward" theme of Maker Shack Agency. I do think it needs some work - the dialog was a little stilted. But the actors were great and I think this show has a ton of potential. Please bring it to Amazon Prime so my kids can stop watching the same old shows over and over.
