Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Counting Cars, a Pawn Stars spin-off, is a reality show featuring an auto body team that restores and sells vintage vehicles. There's some iffy language ("damn," "hell"; bleeped curses) and occasional images of alcohol. The Count's Kustoms team works on Cadillacs, Corvettes, El Caminos, Harley-Davidsons, and others.
Is It Any Good?
From trying to buy random strangers' Cadillacs for cash to retrofitting a Harley-Davidson motorcycle for a man in a wheelchair to safely ride, the series shows the engineering and design that go into fixing up and increasing the value of vintage vehicles. The way profits are made by doing this kind of work also is highlighted. It's pretty male-centered and can be heavy on testosterone at times; many of the scenes include the cast burning rubber and driving fast. But folks who like this sort of thing will find the brief histories offered about the vehicles, and the unique ways they're retrofitted, interesting. Tween and teen car buffs will probably love the attention to detail, but non-car lovers may not be as riveted.
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.
