Netflix Poster for Raising Dion

One evening I was bored and didn’t know what to watch. I remembered my mom recently told me to watch “Raising Dion” so I decided to give it a try. I didn’t know what to expect and wasn’t familiar with any of the actors.

Nicole Warren, played by Alisha Wainwright, is a widowed mother who is raising her son alone after the death of her husband. It’s not an easy job and things get even more complicated when she realizes her eight-year-old son Dion, played by Ja’Siah Young, has supernatural abilities. Dion has telekinesis and can teleport. That means he can move things with his mind and go places simply by thinking about where he wants to go. 

Dion’s mother Nicole is busy trying to figure out the cause of Dion’s supernatural abilities and wants to contain them, while Dion’s godfather Patt, played by Jason Ritter, is amazed by Dion’s capabilities. 

Dion and Patt are both obsessed with reading comic books. Patt always buy comic books for Dion and they read them together. When Dion discovered his super powers, they would compare his powers to the superheroes in the comic books and try to figure out how to manage them.  

Will Nicole be able to keep her son safe and will she ever find out what caused her husband’s death? Watch the first season to find out.
