What sets Armed & Famous apart from other reality shows featuring low-level celebrities is that these folks are put into serious situations in which they really have to use their wits and training. The show gives viewers a peek into the somewhat mysterious world of local police through the eyes of a well-chosen mix of Hollywood folks. For the most part, the celebs seem to take their jobs seriously, and viewers get to see them experience real fears and anxieties in dangerous, stressful situations.

While this is a far cry from educational television, its quirky peek into two worlds makes it a fun guilty pleasure. Because of the real police situations it features, Armed & Famous isn't a good fit for younger viewers, but mature teens and adults might just get a kick out of it.
