Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ellen's Game of Games is a family-friendly game show featuring contestants competing in silly challenges for a chance to win some cash. Folks often fall down or crash into each other during competition, but no one seems to get hurt in the process (and protective gear is sometimes worn). Occasional trivia questions contains some very mild innuendo that will go over kids' heads. It's all in fun, but there are a few challenges that should not be tried at home.
Is It Any Good?
This silly series features folks playing larger-than-life adaptations of some of the games featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. From challenges like "Blindfolded Musical Chairs" to "Tuba Toothpaste," which requires contestants to answer questions correctly before (you guessed it!) getting covered in toothpaste, each challenge is designed to be difficult while generating laughs. Adding to the fray are slow-motion replays and Ellen's trademark humor.
The contestants appear excited and happy to be there, but there are a few moments when Ellen comes close to crossing the line between being mischievous and being mean-spirited, especially when she laughs at the contestants taking tumbles or crying out in frustration or discomfort. But it's all in fun overall, and families looking for a light game show to enjoy will find a fun choice in Ellen's Game of Games.
Did we miss something on diversity?
