Is It Any Good?

From getting tattoos to checking out the dating scene, Brooke Knows Best is chock full of coming-of-age moments. But while Brooke's parents continue to offer their daughter sound advice, their presence on the show is often overshadowed by conversations about their public and somewhat contentious divorce. And then there are her brother's well-publicized legal problems (stemming from his involvement in a near-fatal car accident).

Although in many ways dealing with these issues forces Brooke to recognize that entering adulthood isn't always about partying and having fun, they don't exactly make for great entertainment -- and, in fact, many of the big conversations come across as heavily scripted. And the truth is that without Brooke's quirky, over-protective dad hanging around, the show really isn't very amusing. But die-hard Hogan family fans may like getting another look behind the scenes.
