Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4 ):

Like most eco-series, Expedition Impossible offers lots of grueling challenges while showcasing the beautiful landscapes of a foreign country. It also features a colorful cast made up of people of many different ages, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and sexual orientations. However, some of the teams take on caricature-like qualities that underscore existing social stereotypes in order to create both humor and drama.

The show is full of exciting moments, especially when competitors overcome their greatest fears and/or unexpected obstacles to make it to the finish line. Watching some of the local culture is interesting, too. Folks who like this sort of thing definitely won't be disappointed.
