Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

While this is yet another competition show, the shock is that it's not as cheesy as you might expect, largely because of the Cirque du Soleil influence. Some of the acts are rather beautiful. And there's nothing easy about what the celebrities are doing. The acts -- from the high wire to the ominously named "wheel of death" -- take enormous physical strength, so this is no walk in the park by any stretch of the imagination.

Bottom line? In spite of the fact that we've all been here before in one way or another, there's an odd charm to the whole thing.

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.
