The first episode of the new show The Dumping Ground — a spinoff of Tracy Beaker — aired today on CBBC. The show involved a lot of exploding grenades, brownie mix, and very loud music as the kids enjoyed a vacation from responsible adults. I loved the show because of the variety of characters and humorous events, although I thought it was a bit on the long side. If you enjoyed watching Tracy Beaker, I think you will like this show and I recommend you try it.
