A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The central message is that teamwork can solve any problem, and that disagreements can be resolved through compromise.
Positive Role Models
The hosts are good at what they do and work with the homeowners' best interests at heart. Mistakes are made, and sometimes they don't agree, but they always remain professional.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
The voluptuous female designer is prone to cleavage-bearing tops, which can be a little distracting.

Products & Purchases
Logos for Sears (and Sears products, including Craftsman tools) are prominently featured, and the hosts frequently mention the company by name. As in, "This is my favorite kind of paint: Easy Living from Sears!" Other featured brands include Mullican Flooring and Charisma tile, etc.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, aside from heavy brand promotion for Sears, this is a suitable show for families to watch together, although kids might not be interested in the issues of homeowners (such as designing a nursery or renovating a basement to repair water damage). On rare occasions, hosts will use words like "hell" or "damn" (as in, "hell, no"), and sometimes say things like, "We're screwed." While not inherently sexual, the female host's penchant for curve-conscious tops can be a bit distracting.
Is It Any Good?
When it comes to home-improvement shows, Drill Team isn't the best. In fact, there's an entire network devoted to the topic of home improvement and DIY renovation that offers far better choices -- and more impressive reveals. Instead of offering weekend warriors helpful tips and takeaways, the Drill Team hosts spend a bunch of time shilling for Sears with disingenuous testimonials and product placements. So don't expect to learn much...unless you want to know more about Sears.
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.
