Real, relatable and honest

I really like this show. I think it is funny when it needs to be but, raw when it should be. They are supportive with a no nonsense approach. I enjoy each family member and what the bring to the table. The way they support and lift each other up is moving.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The unscripted series shows how difficult and unforgiving a Hollywood career can be, no matter how successful you are or may once have been. It also offers a chance for the couple to begin reclaiming their Hollywood dream by offering them some much-needed exposure.

There are some humorous moments thanks to Flex's comedy background and some of their quirkier relatives. The show also contains positive messages about family and not giving up. Their fans may like it, but as reality shows go, it doesn't offer anything particularly new.
