Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Big Smo is a mild reality show that contains positive themes about family while being a promotional vehicle for Big Smo, the musical artist. It contains some occasional strong vocabulary (curses are bleeped with mouths blurred), drinking (beer, hard liquor), and some mild innuendo that likely will go over younger viewers' heads. Occasional disagreements are resolved with humor. There are some serious moments, too, including discussions about the death of a parent.
Is It Any Good?
From traveling to and performing at venues to teaching his girls how to chop wood, Big Smo works to build his music career while trying to balance time with his family. But the show also is a promotional vehicle for his brand and his unique style of music, which is inspired by hip-hop, southern rock, and rap.
It's not the most drama-filled reality show, and there are lots of staged moments throughout. But the singer's likable personality and the show's positive messages about family make it appealing. Reality fans looking for some voyeuristic drama won't really find it here, but country music-oriented fans will probably find it entertaining.
