Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Eric & Jessie: Game On is a reality series that gets its edge by featuring lots of sexually suggestive content. Expect frequent references to sex and genitals, plus images of partially dressed women (although no nudity) and scenes of the couple frolicking in the bathtub and other intimate settings. Drinking (wine, shots, champagne) is part of the show, too. Kids may find the show appealing thanks to Decker's football status and James' music, but the show isn't really intended for them.

What's the Story?
ERIC & JESSIE: GAME ON is a reality series staring Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker and pop-country singer Jessie James as they begin their new life together. The series begins as the engaged couple plans their wedding and tries to figure out where they're going to live once Decker's contract with the team expires. Helping them keep their Colorado household together is James' sister, Sydney. Figuring out how to manage their very different professional worlds isn't always easy, but the two are determined to make it work and live a blissful life happily ever after.
Is It Any Good?
Eric & Jessie: Game On features lots of voyeuristic moments as the straight-laced Decker and the rather wild James enjoy being a new, committed couple. It also highlights how things such as their career commitments, fame, and other issues continually challenge their ability to be together.
They are a likable pair, but, outside of their good looks, some silly pranks, and steamy encounters, there isn't much going on here. However, folks looking for some guilty entertainment may find the risque moments entertaining enough to tune in.
