Is It Any Good?

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

Kids who are always scheming up business ideas will likely enjoy this series, but it's geared more towards an adult audience. It's inspiring to see regular people come up with an idea and follow their dream of bringing it to market. However, while this is a reality competition show, the stakes are somewhat low. Parents who would rather their kids not watch Shark Tank may appreciate that the mentors are kind and supportive and the show is free of drama. Unfortunately, without those dramatic elements, the pure entertainment value of the show also decreases.

Seasons 1 through 4 (which aired from 2007 to 2012) of Everyday Edisons definitely feels dated and is fairly boring through a modern lens. It's still equally appropriate for kids, but they'll probably enjoy it less than the 2020 reboot.

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.
