Amazing show!

I think that it was the best show I have ever seen. I was completely mind blown, that's for sure! I do have to say that I think kids 13 and under shouldn't watch because of the language used. Also there were jokes I am sure would make kids a little uncomfortable or feel awkward. 13+ is appropriate and they would enjoy it a lot. Plus a few dirty jokes were in there. Also a disclaimer there are parts of the show that may disturb some but he warns you on the screen. I can handle it and got through his with the razor blades but otherwise, this was the best show ever. If i could give it a thousand stars I would.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (5):

The fact that Angel is still alive after testing his limits time and time again is remarkable. Luckily for fans of extreme entertainment, he's done all of it in front of a camera. Each stunt requires extensive planning and preparation, and Angel works with a team of professionals to ensure his safety. But all of them, including his family members, are reminded daily that there are no guarantees, and each stunt could be his last. Although kids will love Angel's incredible magic, parents will want to preview the show to make sure the stunts aren't too frightening.
