Products & Purchases
As is usual with game shows, many aspects of the show are sponsored. Contestants who use the mobile phone shout-out do so on a Cingular phone, which is blatantly announced by the host. The video question is sponsored by Aflac, and viewers see a brief brand logo before the video plays.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this unique game show tests random taxicab riders on their trivia knowledge for a cash prize. Questions are general knowledge and appropriate for all ages, though preteens may not have the knowledge base to fully participate in play-at-home viewing. The host occasionally smirks at the camera when a contestant doesn't know an answer, but the tone of the show is generally lighthearted. The host and/or contestants occasionally use mild curse words, though they're usually bleeped. Be sure to remind kids that they should never get in a stranger's car, no matter what the incentive.
Is It Any Good?
Questions are interesting, with topics ranging from geography to media. Players vary in age, ethnicity, and skill, which adds an extra appeal to the show. The hosts are likable, and his quips are funny without overpowering the flow of the game.
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.
