Go Dog Go

TV Series Review

Female pup Tag Barker loves her hometown of Pawston. Because if you like being awesome, Pawston is the place for you—a place where fun, friendly neighbors and creativity abound.

If you’ve got a problem, or need help with anything at all, chances are you’ll find canines like Tag, her best friend Scooch Pooch or Tag’s family members Grandpa, Grandma, Ma, Paw, Cheddar Biscuit, Spike and Hattie, willing to lend a helping paw.

Bringing the Page to Life

Dreamworks’ latest CGI kid series, Go, Dog. Go! Is based on an illustrated novel by P.D. Eastman. This beloved book was published in 1961 and now finds a televised home on Netflix.

This TV-Y show is aimed at preschoolers. Each episode, divided into two mini-episodes, is about 24 minutes long and focuses on Tag’s ingenuity, warmth and bravery, which encourages those around her to be better pups and try new things.

And if you grew up reading the book like I did, you’ll see some of the book’s memorable doggies (such as the obsessive hat dog Lady Lydia) and feel that same fun-loving vibe as Tag and Scooch try to get where they need to be. Each episode features original songs, bright colors and lessons on patience, kindness and courage.

Latest Reviews


Punky Brewster

Punky Brewster isn’t a reboot. And it’s not quite the same family-friendly sitcom older fans might remember, either.


Ginny & Georgia

Ginny & Georgia is, at best, trashy escapism not fit for the teens it’s aimed at. At worst, it’s just plain trash.


Superman & Lois

While Superman will always be there to save the world, he needs to be present for Lois and his sons now.
