Is It Any Good?

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

This tween-friendly series combines the explanation elements of a cooking show with the kinds of colorful scenes you'd expect to see on a travel series. It introduces viewers to food and meals as cultural experiences rather than simply tasting opportunities. Meanwhile, Corwin makes the show entertaining by adding his own unique brand of humor as he prepares each meal. And his honesty about how he feels while preparing and trying some of the more unusual dishes makes the experience very relatable.

Some viewers may find themselves getting a little squeamish while watching Corwin and his hosts cut up the lungs of a lamb or chew on wild snails. Others may find that, despite the show's title, it lacks some edginess. But for foodies of all ages, this series will defnitely whet the appetite.
