Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Watching a seasoned professional work under pressure is, by now, well known to make for great TV. Just ask the showrunners behind Project Runway, Face Off, or the innumerable other shows that use this concept. Chopped: After Hours has the delicious added bonus of serving up humble pie to its contestants, with the same judges who criticized the efforts of chefs on Chopped having to now try their hand at the same challenge, with varying levels of success.

Thus Chopped: After Hours has much of the same appeal as Chopped, with a fun turnabout-is-fair-play aspect in addition. The briefness of each episode (just 10 minutes) and the fact that it goes up after its companion episode of Chopped has just aired, will probably make Chopped: After Hours an indispensable first stop after Chopped fans have just watched an episode. You think you're so smart, judges? Well, then: You try it.

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.
