Is It Any Good?

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

The show takes a positive and proactive look at day-to-day problems, as well as medical conditions and other more serious issues. But the amount of time spent on these things is very limited given the show's 30-minute slot. Like any talk show, the discussions about (and solutions to) these things are mostly superficial.

Dr. Drew fans will definitely like his trademark frank-but-gentle approach as he talks to his guests. But some of his jokes and interaction with show contributors seem rehearsed and unnatural. This aside, he offers positive messages about getting informed and improving your life in a variety of ways.
