Is It Any Good?

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

Driven is a smart series that reveals what truly drives the celebrities who walk the red carpet. The stars' family members, friends, and associates are candid, and the producers don't gloss over the less savory parts of the celebs' pasts. Of course, that's exactly what might give parents pause, since many of the stars have dabbled heavily in drugs and alcohol and have exhibited behavior that those living in the "real" world might deem irresponsible.

Still, the end result is always uplifting, with each star seeing the light and overcoming whatever vice or addiction holds him or her back. Bottom line: If your kid's favorite star is being profiled, it would be a shame to keep them away from getting the goods simply because the celeb has made some bad choices in the past. Consider previewing the episode first, then watching it with your child so that you can put any bad behavior and choices in context.

Did we miss something on diversity?
