Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Better Late Than Never is a reality series that features four senior celebs -- Henry Winkler, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman, and William Shatner -- as they embark on a trip throughout Asia. There are lots of fun moments, which sometimes come in the form of innuendo, crude references, and blurred nudity. There's no violence, but there are a few minor arguments, and some of the activities (such as robot wrestling) can get rough. Curses are bleeped (with mouths blurred), and promotional sponsors such as Delta Airlines and Apple are visible. There also are some references to services such as Priceline and other companies for whom individual cast members work.
Is It Any Good?
Better Late Than Never offers a laugh-out-loud viewing experience that celebrates camaraderie among older men as much as it does international travel. From figuring out local transportation systems to finding the strength to climb endless flights of stairs, the men show off their personalities, sense of humor, and occasional differences as they experience the highs and lows of traveling with friends.
There's lots of bonding, as well as some occasional plugging of sponsors and companies some of the men work for. But regardless of the many comments about aches, pains, and being older, it underscores that it is still possible to explore, learn, and cross things off your bucket list regardless of your age. Some will find this message inspiring, while others will just find it good plain fun.
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.
