Is It Any Good?

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

The unscripted -- but highly produced -- Big Rich Atlanta features all the voyeuristic drama that one comes to expect from these kinds of reality shows. But unlike shows like the Real Housewives of Atlanta, this series centers more on the personalities of the eccentric cast of characters, rather than on how they live narcissistic lifestyles thanks to their status and wealth.

Some folks may find it entertaining, but many of the relationships featured here seem forced, and some of the women's behavior is so odd or over-the-top that you can't help but feel they are trying too hard for the cameras. Some of the ladies' behavior also reflect some long-standing stereotypes about the superficial nature of women from the South, too. As a result, the show feels less like a guilty pleasure, and more like a Southern parody.
