Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

The series, which is produced by actress and art enthusiast Sarah Jessica Parker, follows the same familiar format that popular shows like Project Runway and Top Chef are known for. As a result, it highlights the contestants who have unique personalities, and underscores some of the friendships and conflicts that emerge between them while playing up the elimination drama.

The show offers some interesting insight into what makes people's creations art, as well as what goes into critiquing it. But asking people to create good art within a very specific and limited time frame for the sake of a competition seems to undermine the very creative process the show is supposed to be celebrating. It may appeal to reality fans, but die hard art lovers might have a hard time appreciating the picture it is painting.
