Is It Any Good?

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

This charmingly upbeat series highlights positive parent-child relationships and charitable giving, under the guise of a goofy game show. Most questions test how much kids know about their parents, but throughout the game parents learn something about their kids' thoughts, too.

The guest roster isn't full of A-listers, but the larger-than-life personalities of some of the participants make up for this. So do the awkwardly funny moments that result from kids revealing some of the their parents' weird or bad behaviors. Overall, Big Star Little Star is a fun show that families can enjoy.
