Would give zero stars. Awful.

Very very bizarre look into Britney's life during the drug years. She's got a disturbing relationship with Kevin federline, and she appears to be stoned or high on something during the entirety of the show. Awful, awful show.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

It's hard to know exactly what you're supposed to take from this. Shots of Britney performing to sold out crowds make you kind of admire her guts -- regardless of what you think of her music or dancing. She gives a tour of her bus, which makes you kind of feel sorry for her lonely life on the road. When she makes faces at the camera, you feel like she's still a kid underneath all the makeup and hair extensions.

But those are just fleeting moments. Mostly, the material here is boring and adolescent: Britney taping Kevin in the shower, Britney jokingly advising her assistant to have sex because she's too stressed. And -- judging from the debut episode -- it's hard to see any real romantic spark between Britney and Kevin; they just seem like two kids having a wild romp in the UK. Ultimately, the most fascinating part of the show is watching Britney's face in the various scenes and noticing that she looks different almost every time you see her. What the heck does she really look like?
