This is what family is all about. A few years ago I didn't really care for Deion but I realized that I was just going off of what the media would say about him. He is so down to earth and funny. He and Pilar are great together and they have a beautiful family! Even the kids are funny. They put Real in Reality!! I give this show two thumbs up.

Is It Any Good?

Family is this couple's priority, and the choices they make are intended to protect their children as well as provide for them. Although they live in luxury, their attitude about life is extremely down-to-earth. As a result, the series lacks much of the narcissistic materialism that many other celeb-oriented reality shows seem to celebrate. True, the kids do get some perks as a result of their dad's celebrity status and wealth (like getting a surprise professional makeover before going on a first date). But the lack of nannies and the clear boundaries that are established at home provide a very positive image of hands-on parenting and solid values that include respect and appreciation for everything and everyone around them.

This upbeat series isn't particularly action-packed, but it does have its fun moments. It will probably appeal to reality show fans and sports buffs of all ages. It's tame enough for kids to watch, but there is a little bit of sexual innuendo (it should go right over kids' head) and some mild references to violence that are more funny than aggressive. But overall, Deion & Pilar is a fun example of how family -- not celebrity -- can take center field.
