Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

The series offers a voyeuristic chance to look at the design aesthetics of people who aren't interior designers, but who enjoy exploring their own creative side when it comes to home decorating. While looking at the different designs, which range from beige and bland to colorfully over-the-top, is interesting, the fun also comes from watching the reactions of the contestants looking at them.

The scoring is designed to keep contestants focused on the designs rather than what suits their personal tastes, but this doesn't stop them from offering some rather obnoxious opinions about their fellow contestants' decorating choices. But this aside, the show offers some mildly humorous entertainment for reality design show fans.
