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 Going Si-Ral, a Duck Dynasty spinoff, features viral videos plus commentary from Uncle Si and his nephew Willie. The language is mild, but on occasion there is some subtle sexual innuendo and a few sexist references. As expected, the videos feature accidents and other potentially dangerous situations (think America's Funniest Videos), but no one gets really hurt. Superfans of the Duck Dynasty crew may enjoy it, but there are better choices for everyone else.
Best Spin Off EVER lol

What's the Story?
GOING SI-RAL stars Duck Dynasty's Uncle Si and Willie Robertson sharing their thoughts about random Internet videos. From dogs honking car horns to people getting chased by chickens, the two offer their observations about each video and the lessons learned from them. Adding to the banter are reenactments of specific moments, Uncle Si's own life hack videos, and guest appearances. At the end Si responds to audience questions submitted via Twitter.
Is It Any Good?
Each episode of this lighthearted Duck Dynasty spin-off offers lots of silly exchanges as the two watch and comment on pre-selected video content. But the highlight of the show is watching Uncle Si, who claims a lack of internet-savvy, starring in his own homemade videos.
Some of the actual internet videos are fun, but the overall show is about capitalizing on the backwoods humor its parent series is known for. Fans of the original series will enjoy it, but Going Si-Ral isn't for everyone.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about TV shows that feature internet videos. What's the appeal? Does the appeal of these shows come from the hosts or the videos themselves?
Do you think the Robertson family's signature looks and behavior reflect who they really are? Or have they recreated themselves as stereotypical backwoods characters to make shows like Going Si-Ral more entertaining?
