A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this docuseries -- which follows a set of 17-year-old identical quadruplets during their last year of high school -- is pretty mild, but contains some iffy language ("pissed," "crap"; occasional curse words bleeped). The teens are overall good kids, but constantly bicker and occasionally talk back to their mom. Divorce and single parenthood is sometimes discussed.
What's the story?
FOUR OF A KIND is a reality series about the trials and tribulations of a set of teenage quadruplets. Calli, Kendra, Megan, and Sarah Durst live with their mom Naomi and older brother Travis in Buffalo, Minnesota. Cameras follow as they gossip, argue, and enjoy their senior year of high school. Living together isn’t always easy, but at the end of the day the sisters are always there for each other.
Is it any good?
The show takes a lighthearted look at the every day lives of spirited sisters, each who have very distinct personalities despite their similar looks. They also highlight the unique attention they receive for being identical quads.
The show isn’t particular exciting, especially since much is dedicated to showcasing their constant bickering. Reality fans may enjoy watching the unique dynamic between these multiples, but ultimately they are just regular teens doing regular things in Middle America.
