Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Carpool Karaoke: The Series is a version of a popular late-night show segment where people (you guessed it) sing together in a car. It features lots of popular music, celebrities, and banter that may contain some off-color humor and bleeped cursing. Some song lyrics are suggestive or have references to violence, but these aren't highlighted. Drinking is occasionally visible, too. Celebs sometimes use the opportunity to briefly plug a product, film, or album. All this being said, most episodes are mild enough for older tweens to handle.
Is It Any Good?
This fun series offers all the entertainment the late-night segment is famous for in a slightly longer format. From Will Smith and Alicia Keyes to a few Game of Thrones cast members, each installment features lighthearted and funny chats in between sing-a-longs. It also features a few simple special effects and other elements that the late-night segments can't accommodate.
Despite the absence of James Corden from most installments, and the lack of audience laughter and applause, the show still honors the segment concept's simple approach and silly banter. Whether you're familiar with the original late-night segments or not, it's hard not to watch this without smiling. There's also a good chance Carpool Karaoke may inspire you to belt out a tune, and quite possibly make you burst out laughing.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
