Henry Danger is an American comedy television series created by Dan Schneider and Dana Olsen that premiered on Nickelodeon on July 26, 2014. The series stars Jace Norman, Cooper Barnes, Riele Downs, Sean Ryan Fox, Ella Anderson, and Michael D. Cohen. On July 27, 2018, the series was renewed for a fifth and final season. The show ended on March 21, 2020. Later, it got a spin-off called Danger Force on March 28th, 2020, a week after the final episode aired.

Why It Sucks

  1. Similar to Seasons 6 to 8 of SpongeBob SquarePants and Family Guy since Season 7, most of the episodes are either bland, boring, annoying, idiotic, nonsensical or have horrendous plots that are nothing but pure filler, such as "Substitute Teacher", "Christmas Danger", "Rubber Duck", "Massage Chair", "Up The Stairs!", "Car Trek", "Budget Cuts", "Danger Things" (cheap and insulting cash in on Stranger Things), "Captain Mom" and worst of all, "Mouth Candy".
    • The episode "Captain Mom" is a ripoff of the Mighty Med episode "Oliver Hatches the Eggs."
  2. Lousy acting, especially from Ella Anderson, who shouts 3/4 of her lines when portraying Piper.
  3. Most of the characters are a rip-off of characters from previous Dan Schneider shows (mostly the ones from Drake & Josh and iCarly) and are very unlikable and annoying in their own ways.
    • Henry Hart/Kid Danger is a very bland and cliched main protagonist. He is also a poor man's rip-off of Drake Parker from Drake & Josh.
    • Charlotte Page is a typical Mary Sue who is the punching bag. She is also a stereotypical (albeit, unlikable) tomboy character, similar to Sam Puckett from iCarly.
    • Jasper Dunlop is an unlikeable idiot who is also the punching bag, similar to Josh Nichols from Drake & Josh and Gibby Gibson from iCarly.
    • Ray Manchester/Captain Man is the character who hits on married moms and he is too selfish, unlikeable, and immature to be considered a legitimate superhero. Also, he barely protects Swellview in some episodes, such as "Man of the House". To make matters worse, he has become even dumber than before since Season 3. His comic relief is also a blatant, unfunny rip-off of Crazy Steve's from Drake & Josh and Spencer Shay's from iCarly.
    • Henry's family is very abusive and disrespectful to him, even his own parents. Henry's dad, in fact, is just an idiot.
    • Piper is arguably the worst character on the show as she is an extremely unlikeable brat who yells way too much and barely gets punished for her actions, not to mention she’s also a huge Mary-Sue as well, similar to Megan Parker from Drake & Josh.
  4. Henry/Kid Danger and Ray/Captain Main often act like villains (or better yet, anti-heroes) when they're supposed to be superheroes. An example is in "Brawl in the Hall", where they rob a bank and frame a bully for it that Charlotte is supposed to fight against. Another two examples are in "Trouble With Frittles" and "Henry's Frittle Problem", where Captain Man and Kid Danger blow up two Frittle chip factories in two different ways, causing Jack Frittleman to get revenge on them in "Escape Room".
  5. The soundtrack is generic and awful.
  6. No character development at all. In fact, all of the characters are the complete opposite of character development (which is character derailment), as they get worse and worse each episode rather than any better (except for Piper)).
  7. Graphically unfunny and forced humor.
  8. Cheap and poorly done special effects for the 2010s and 2020s standards.
  9. In "Flabber Gassed", Jasper does two dances from Fortnite, which is just Nickelodeon trying to make this show modern.
  10. Like most modern sitcoms, it overuses the Laugh Track, including the scene where the teacher just says Henry's name.
  11. The Harts actively allow and even encourage their 12-year-old daughter to drive and somehow the state sends and allows Piper to keep her license.
  12. Swellview is a very stupid name for a town and has ridiculous laws, even for a kids' comedy.
  13. Captain Man is a ridiculous name for a superhero. To make matters worse, his original name was supposed to be “Galaxy Glen”.
  14. Jasper and Charlotte, despite being treated like trash in most episodes, can be unlikable too. Jasper can be overly talkative, annoying, and pathetic at times, while Charlotte can be arrogant and sassy towards Henry, Ray, Jasper, and schwoz at times.
  15. The newscasters are used as fillers starting in Season 3, which will get on your nerves real fast.
  16. Ridiculous villains, such as The Spoiler, Mitch Blisky, Jeff Blisky, and the Ballerino Brothers.
  17. Speaking of Mitch, he can arguably be the most mean-spirited villain who got Jasper framed and arrested when Jasper did absolutely nothing wrong with him.
  18. False advertising: Some of the promos claim that the show is '"TV's #1 Kids Comedy". It isn’t.
  19. The writing is very poor and almost sounds like it was written by a 9-year-old.
    • For example, in “Saturday Night Lies", Ray's ex-girlfriend, Lacey, and her husband Roger get turned into a gross, horrible, and disturbing human blob after trying Schowz's teleportation machine and in the end, Captain Man and Kid Danger leave them outside a synagogue.
    • In "I Dream Of Danger", Charlotte has a dream where she almost kisses Kid Danger and tries to prevent it from happening, which almost causes her to get eaten by a "fear-smelling" lion.
    • In "A Fiñata Full of Death Bugs", there is a Fiñata (fish piñata), filled with bees that eat people's brains! And in the end, they escape and do the damage to two victims. No, really. Death bugs, that eat brains, in a show, rated TV-Y7.
  20. Frankie Grande is presented as a homosexual stereotype.
  21. Most of the endings to the episodes are either unsatisfying, anti-climatic, or mean-spirited.
  22. It has crossover episodes with The Thundermans, Game Shakers, Knight Squad, and even Ryan's Mystery Playdate, which are all bad enough by themselves.
  23. The show encourages the following:
    • Bullying
    • Violence
    • Lying
    • Breaking the rules
    • Framing/slandering people
    • Victimizing yourself
    • Committing crimes
    • Cheating
    • Not being yourself
    • Starting drama
    • Being a phone addict
    • Acting like a jerk
    • Not learning from your mistakes
    • Misbehaving at school
    • Defiance
    • Doing whatever the hell you want
    • Being stubborn
    • Not listening
    • Lacking common sense
    • Having a bad attitude
  24. In "Live & Dangerous Part 2", there is a very disgusting scene where Piper pops Jasper's enormous grotesque neck zit onto Frankie Grande's face. We kid you not. Even though It wasn’t a real pimple, but a fake one made with a giant strawberry or cherry soft gummy filled with vanilla pudding or melted whipped cream glued to Jasper’s neck.
  25. Many characters don't learn from their mistakes, don't right their wrongdoings, apologize, or get punishment. An example is in "Invisible Brad," where Jasper and Piper make a deal to split the money Piper makes from selling her playhouse if Jasper helps fix it up, but at the end, Piper tricks Jasper into believing she doesn't want to sell it, sells it and keeps all of the money.
  26. The songs in "Henry Danger: The Musical" are just generic and unoriginal. One song makes references to famous singers, which is very, very unnecessary.
  27. Episodes like "Captain Jerk" and "The Bucket Trap" (episodes about keeping Henry's secret from Piper and Jasper) are completely alienated and pointless in the later seasons now that the two find out about his secret.
  28. In 2018 it got an animated spin-off called The Adventures of Kid Danger, which failed as it only had 10 episodes.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Decent and even cool villains like Drex, The Toddler, Rick Twitler, and Dr. Minyak.
  2. Piper is less bratty and more mature in the later seasons.
  3. Schwoz is a decent character.
  4. In "Hour of Power", Henry has a superpower that could make his reflexes very fast, but, unfortunately, loses it in "Part 3: A New Hero" and stays powerless for the rest of the series.
  5. Anytime Henry's family (especially Piper) gets called out for their actions, it's bound to be satisfactory.
  6. Sometimes, the characters such as Jasper and Charlotte can be tolerable at times and can get sympathy from the viewers sometimes.
  7. “Henry Danger: The Musical” actually has some pretty catchy songs (although the lyrics were bad).
  8. The final four episodes, “The Beginning of the End", "Captain Drex", "The Fate of Danger Part 1” and "The Fate of Danger Part 2", were very amazing and heart-warming send-offs for the series, and some of the good episodes of the show.
  9. The show had some other good episodes
  10. The final two seasons of the show were a big improvement as they feature less filler and focus more on a continuing plot than the other seasons.
  11. The theme song is pretty good.

Reception

Henry Danger was met with mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike. However, Seasons 4 and 5 were met with more positive reception.

Nickelodeon doesn’t care how bad the show is and only made it for fun. I don’t know why nickelodeon is making most of the live action shows bad it feels like a government order.

Yep, maybe Dan Schneider should surf this wiki. Captain Man was supposed to have a way more original name, which was Galaxy Glen. Dan should have called home that and not Captain Man. Worst name for a super hero ever.(blowing raspberries)

The only reason why the last season seemed to have gathered a more positive reception was because Dan Schneider had already left Nickelodeon before the last season began production. The real reason why the writing is poor in this show overall is because Dan Schneider had completely stop caring and clearly didn't want to produce shows for Nickelodeon anymore.
