Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This unpleasant, ethically-challenged show is designed to show how far people will go to win some money, even if they know that it will embarrass or hurt other people in the process. Some challenges, which range from a contestant convincing a conservative family member to pose nude to telling parents that they're becoming pot vendors, also seem designed to create maximum negative impact.

Regardless of what you may think about the choices being made here, the show's overall messages are questionable at best. But as the folks featured here try to convince themselves that the ends justify the means, it may get you thinking about how far you would be willing -- or not willing -- to go if promised something you really want or need.
