Tv Season Info

Set in present day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex (Lauren Graham), set out to build their own team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of youth sports today. With the help of Gordon Bombay, they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.

Critic Reviews for The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (16)

Game Changers just shrugs that if the Mighty Ducks' strategy worked for three movies, it'll simply work again here.

Mar 24, 2021 | Full Review…

Like the Don't Bothers - like the show itself, really - she's in there swinging, but doesn't score very often.

Mar 24, 2021 | Full Review…

The best thing "Game Changers" offers is how it unabashedly embraces the world it exists within, representing a seamless continuation of the movies even as it carries the ball - sorry, puck - forward for a new generation.

Apr 13, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

While it's not as game-changing as the title suggests, these new characters are charismatic and fun, the story is familiar and comforting and it has enough heart to skate on.

Apr 11, 2021 | Full Review…

Graham is a delight for kids and parents alike, striking a successful balance between nostalgia and novelty...

Apr 2, 2021 | Full Review…

As a stand-alone TV series, Game Changers is serviceable at one end, lightly entertaining at the other. But as a TV sequel tethered to a beloved film franchise, it's a sweet, goofy and warm ode to a pop-culture touchstone.

Mar 30, 2021 | Full Review…

The kid actors are all pretty funny and the dialogue is just sharp enough to make even adults laugh.

Apr 2, 2021 | Full Review…

Disney is banking on nostalgia and a love of sports dramas to get its new series over that hump, and the show is mostly charming enough.

Mar 30, 2021 | Full Review…

While its characters are engaging to watch, there's a lack of tension (so far) that holds the series back from standing out among similar underdog stories.

Mar 29, 2021 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This offers more proof, if it was ever needed, that Lauren Graham is America's greatest TV mom.

Mar 29, 2021 | Full Review…

Just like the films that came before it, The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers is an exercise in the familiar and heartwarming. It's not trying to break any new ground or win prestige awards. It's a simple underdog story, and a dang good one at that.

Mar 29, 2021 | Full Review…

The series captures the spirit of the OG films through this new motley crew, who are not exactly all-star caliber but still have plenty of heart.

Audience Reviews for The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers: Season 1

    It's just a lame copy paste from the original movie, the story is not modern at all. It really Bothers me that they can't film a proper hockey scene. Also as a hockey fan it bothers me that they don't show what is hockey in 2021, they play hockey like they are in the 90s, in every scene a could call 10 different penalty, a lot of illegal hits. Hockey right now is about speed, it's a fast pace game. I'm just waiting for that episode (I'm at ep 4) where they will be a fight and they will talk about violence in hockey, it's soooo predictable. Let's not talk about the story, they are stuck in the 90s, the same narrative style. Atleast Cobra Kai try to be different, but this Mighty Ducks tv show don't bother to even try. (pun intended)

    What's the target audience here? The old Duck movie fans? No. The new kids? No. This is a show that tries to make everyone happy and that's why it fails. Really poor script. Take some lessons from Cobra Kai -- that's how you reboot properly.

    Really love this show I was worried about it at the beginning but as the show goes on I get proven wrong

    Writing this after seeing S1:E3. So far, i'm interested to keep watching but disappointed with a few things. 1) The explanation given in E3 is rather pathetic, especially given that Bombay is supposed to be a major lawyer figure in his prime. That doesn't just go away. 2) It's disappointing that in the second episode we are already accepting kids using foul language. Seriously? Can we not have some class anymore for true family friendly content? Ridiculous. 3) While the idea is interesting, the acting for the antagonists is "unbelievable." In D1, you felt the greed of the Hawks coach. in Game Changers, the acting is flaky and not believable. Same goes with the ridiculous parenting methods that they are trying to create for their dichotomy. It's blah, it's meh.

    I watch an episode and it makes me remember watching D1-3 as a kid. It's nice to see finally how things went for Bombay.

    Trash - Nothing like movies. Feels like the show is more about the mothers than the kids. Unrealistic characters with generic vanilla personalities. Terrible values - it's ok if you suck, don't worry about getting better. They've essentially tried to take the character template from the movies then sterilized the show by removing all personality, realism, villainy, concept of competition, etc. to create a safe whimsical world.
  • Apr 09, 2021
    It's not deep or new or fresh, it's simple, it's got good vibes and it's familiar, and well, maybe that's what we need right now, the characters have promise and aim actually interested in seeing how this plays out.

    If you grew up with the original Mighty Ducks you will be greatly disappointed! After 25 years this is the script that they thought would do Mighty Ducks franchise justice? The original movies were fun and had heart and great story lines. My guess is the far left writers that wrote this crap weren't even alive when the original movies came out. Two episodes in and it keeps getting worse. The lead Karen character is unwatchable. Wish they would have just made it a hockey show and named it something else instead of desecrating the Mighty Ducks name. I hope Emilio Estevez got paid really well to trash the Mighty Ducks legacy.

    It's pretty good! Some parts could be improved, but I like it, and better than I expected.
