G-Rated Americana Food Review

RE: much of the food on this docu-style show is high-calorie and high-fat Oh Pa-Leeze - who wrote this? BBQ is fatty, of course. Gimme a break. Parent's warning: BBQ is fattier than a cobb salad and a chablis. John Goodman has the perfect voice for this show and BBQ is an American icon!

Is It Any Good?

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

Size and excess seem to be the determining factors of whether something is the best or not, rather than taste -- although many folks do talk about how good the food tastes. It's kind of fun to see how crazy folks can get with a simple hamburger, and the show moves along quickly.

Other than appreciating the history or creativity behind the individual dishes, the show offers little other than a chance to be tantalized and watch others eat.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
