Love it, Sad we are almost done
Verified purchase
My daughter is 6 years old and she loves shows with middle/high school girls. She loves the fashion, the friendship element and the independence the characters seem to have. I don't like those shows for her because she is still a too young for the teen angst. So we often disagree about what she can watch (Strawberry Shortcake, Sophia, Lego Friends) versus what she wants to watch (Ever After High, Monster High and all of the teen shows on Nick). With that being said, we are both in love with this show. The cooking element is really neat and the magical elements are cool. The girls are not too young and not too old; they speak in age-appropriate language and they dress very realistically. I love that they are smart and my daughter loves that they have a close bond. The addition of the boy sidekick is a nice touch and the mystery aspect has us hooked. We have made it to the 9th episode and already we are sad that the season is almost over for us, but my daughter is looking forward to starting the shows over from the beginning.

Familiar Territory, Excellently Done
Verified purchase
The power of three, links to the past, and young women who have special powers are familiar tropes, but Just Add Magic manages to bring a remarkably fresh perspective to these well-worn paths. Because the spells are engaged initially only through a cookbook found in the attic in the home of primary character Kelly Quinn, viewers can enjoy the fun of the mystery and magic without following the characters' hearts to unnecessarily dark places. Whereas many series get bogged down in long story arcs, Just Add Magic effectively weaves in an overarching plot while offering a new manifestation of the spells in each episode. Although the series starts off slowly, the adventure picks up rapidly after the characters of Ms. Silvers and Mama P. are developed. The young cast members are effective, and Abby Donnelly as Darbie is especially good, playing Kelly’s sidekick in a manner reminiscent of a less-acerbic Sam Puckett (iCarly). By necessity, the parents have to remain unaware about the goings-on in their own home, but they are not treated as ineffectual, and surprisingly, they actually contribute more than just whatever obstacle is needed to advance the plot for a given episode. Much credit should be given to Cindy Callaghan, whose books inspired the series, and to the direction, which is consistent and never distracting even though a number of different directors are involved. The series is thought-provoking without being preachy, humorous without being crude, and suspenseful without being gory. Overall, Just Add Magic never allows the central theme of the magic cookbook to overwhelm the human drama in the relationships between the friends, frenemies, and family members. It is a series that, while like Spooksville and Goosebumps, is clearly intended for young adults, it is also one that is interesting enough to entertain viewers of all ages. Amazon has been producing very good series for young adults, and these shows are a compelling reason to keep or start a Prime membership.

Just Add Magic Is Epically Amazing
Verified purchase
I'm a grown man but I enjoy watching kids shows old and new. I was a huge fan of Boy Meets World when I was a kid, I'm now really enjoying Girl Meets World. Seeing kids shows that inspire kids to do good things is always nice. This is a great show and you can really tell that these three girls are friends who really care about each other. Great morals.

The only suggestion I have to make the show better is to post a recipe of something cooked during the episode at the end of each episode. I think it would be fun to follow in the footsteps of the characters when it comes to cooking.

UPDATE: Just finished watching the entire first season. My wife and I really enjoyed it from start to finish. Even for a "kids" show it kept us guessing. It gave us a lot of laughs and neither of us guessed at the surprise twice at the end. We really hope it's brought back for a second season.

I started watching this show with my wife and 9 year old daughter two weeks ago, thinking that I could get some things done around the house while they were watching. Bad news for me - nothing gets done while the show is on because we are all watching to see what will happen next. It's a great family show - interesting for kids and adults. As the father of two girls (my older daughter pretends to be "too cool" for a kids show but we can tell she enjoys it) I REALLY appreciate seeing girls on screen that behave and dress like normal kids, respect other people, and love their families.

This is a great show, and I hope it continues well into the future.

Another review by some old dude
Verified purchase
I checked this out yesterday only because there aren't nearly enough good fantasy/magic shows and really didn't expect to get any further than glancing at a few of the reviews. I was intrigued seeing people who said they were far from being the target audience and they thought it was good.

Getting ready to watch the second episode the next day. I got to thinking about what makes this better than many shows.

Space.

Not physical, but concept space. Many shows try to cram loads of references and other gimmicks in to be more appealing. This show doesn't do that.

It makes sense when you think about how many references the target audience has at 8 - 14 years old, but whenever I've tried to watch shows for this age range they cram in every reference they can and then beat them to death because there are so few of them. Shows like that get stale really quick and seem very crowded with concepts.

This show just puts out a solid story and gives it room to breathe. It's really nice.

Don't get me wrong; I like a lot of references and cleverness - most of the shows I watch are like that, but they are targeting much older audiences; so there is much more to draw on and so don't get tired so quickly. This show is a nice break from that though.

BEST.SHOW.EVER.
Verified purchase
I am 10 years old, and I watched this with my 7-year-old sister, 4-year-old brother, and my mom. We knew this show would be a winner after we watched the first episode! We love the magic of the cookbook, and the mysteriousness around the magic!

This show keeps us wanting more with cliff hangers and a mystery at the end of every show! There have been many plot twists that add to the excitement. We love to try to figure out what will happen in the next show, and what Mama P is planning next.

Kelly, Darby, and Hannah are the perfect characters for this show. With Hannah's fear of germs and getting detention or bad grades, Darby's fun attitude and friendly personality, and Kelly's leadership and love of her Grandma, they make the perfect trio. I love how Darby and Hannah care about their friend so much, that they will take risks to hep save Kelly's Grandma!

Just Add Magic is full of adventure, mystery, danger, and, well, magic. It also includes wonderful themes such as the importance of family and friends. This is the perfect combo, and it will keep you hungry for more of the three friend's adventures!

If you like adventure, magic, or mystery, you should definitely watch Just Add Magic! It is one of the best shows I have ever watched! There is nothing that I can complain about in it at all! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, WE ARE BEGGING YOU, MAKE ANOTHER SEASON! PLEASE, PLEASE!

Not Just a "Kid's Show"
Verified purchase
Now that "Just Add Magic" is back for Season 2 (1/13/17) I can review the first season. The season finale could serve as the series finale and for a LONG time that seemed to be the case. The episodes were Copyrighted 2015, so I assumed this was going to be the only season. All your questions from the first season are answered in the season finale and the final event gave them material for another season without it feeling like a cliffhanger. I was fine with the way things ended. This is the only kids show I've seen with an over-arching plot. I'm 22, and I love to watch Food Network, so a show about a magic cookbook drew me in. I got caught up in the drama and mystery as well. This is as well written as the kid shows on PBS, it deals with consequences, friendship, and illness of a loved one. (In this case the loved one is cursed, but it is treated by the adults as an illness.) I like how the recipes the girls cook are at the center of each episode; how much detail they shoot of each recipe. The world they create is totally engrossing, because the magic is complex; what each family of ingredients does the consequences of the spell go together nicely. Why isn't Season 1 on DVD? Ten years from now is it still going to be available on Amazon Prime? Most of the shows I used to watch as a kid don't air now. Hopefully streaming can improve the quality of kid shows as well as their longevity.

I LOVE this show!
Verified purchase
It's not often you find a show that is "grown-up" enough for your tween, mild enough for your preschooler, genuinely entertaining for adults, aaannd models positive messages through young girls who talk, act, and dress appropriately for their age. If you have been looking (like I have) for a show like this, count your lucky stars because you have FINALLY found it!

This is seriously such a cute show! It is so fun to follow the intriguing, uplifting story-line, and ALL ages enjoy it (even the boys don't mind watching it) :). It's not too scary, contains realistic tension (sometimes predictable), but has an overriding message of love, respect, personal sacrifice, and bonds between family and friends. Seriously- it's wholesome, inspiring AND interesting! The acting is pretty darn good, especially considering the age of the main characters, and the biggest plus- it doesn't give me a headache to watch it! :D Amazon has hit a sweet spot with this show! I hope the second season is as good as the first!
