Luxurious travel makes for lackluster television.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say: Not yet rated

In the midst of uncertain economic times, First Class All the Way offers an escape for everyday folks who are fretting about their 401Ks or plummeting home values. But in spite of all the glitz and glamour, Ryan-Duffy's world reveals itself to be rather boring. Take the series pilot -- which should, in theory, be the episode that grabs viewers and hooks them for the long haul: Ryan-Duffy sends a group of her friends (who could very well be casting rejects from The Real Housewives of Orange County) on an exclusive jaunt to Paris and Monte Carlo. But instead of wishing you could be there with them, driving luxury cars and rubbing elbows with the likes of Prince Albert, you end up wishing they'd do something -- anything -- that was actually worth watching.

As the glue that holds the series together, Ryan-Duffy herself is surprisingly un-compelling. (Need a visual? Most of the time, she has the personality of a walnut.) Her staff is only slightly more watchable. But how many office arguments will it take to save this ho-hum series from crashing and burning?

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.
