What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bullsh*t The Game Show is a trivia quiz show featuring contestants making up stories in an effort to win money. The word "bulls--t" is uttered freely and frequently throughout each episode. Trivia questions sometimes contain references to alcohol and drugs, and on occasion there are subtle references to other TV shows and franchises like Sbarro and Cinnabon. Contestants sometimes pretend to be snarky with one another, but it's understood that it's all in fun.

What's the Story?
BULLSH*T THE GAME SHOW is a trivia show where contestants don't have to give correct answers to win cash. Hosted by comedian Howie Mandel, the series features contestants working their way up to a $1 million grand prize by answering 10 rounds of trivia questions. The twist? Contestants who don't know the answers to questions can attempt to stay in the game by making up responses. If they convince one of their three opponents that they've answered the question correctly, they get to remain in the game.
Is It Any Good?
The humorous series features contestants confidently answering questions in hopes that they can convince their opponents that they know what they are talking about. The way folks use their best poker faces when responding to question is fun, as is the way the other participants listen, watch, and articulate how and why they believe the answer is legitimate or complete nonsense. Howie Mandel helps the humor along, and the cliffhangers at the end of each episode makes it easy to bingewatch. Granted, the word "bulls--t" is used repeatedly, which makes it an iffy choice for younger kids. But outside of this, Bullsh*t the Game Show is a fun, lighthearted watch.
