The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

While there's a logical explanation behind tricks performed by the mentalist, most celebrities who work with Suchard question whether what they are ultimately seeing is real or not. However, no explanations are forthcoming. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Suchard is friendly and engaging. 

Violence

Illusions sometimes require people to run and crash into things (but no one gets hurt). 

Sex

Occasional sexual innuendo that will go over young kids' heads. 

Language

Words like "hell" are audible, but strong curses are bleeped.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Gone Mental with Lior is a reality show on which a mentalist performs illusions with some celebrity help. There's some strong language (including some bleeped curses like "s--t"), and some occasional sex jokes that will go most over kids' heads. The overall show is mild enough for teens to tune into if they like this sort of thing.

What's the story?

GONE MENTAL WITH LIOR is a reality series that features celebrities participating in fun illusions. Master mentalist Lior Suchard invites celebrities like Ben Stiller, Ludacris, and even football player Rob Gronkowski to participate in a series of tasks and challenges. These might require them to secretly choose random things like numbers and people -- Suchard seems to then read their minds and influence their thoughts, which always leaves everybody stumped. 

Is it any good?

This lighthearted series features lots of tricks and illusions designed to show off Lior Suchard's (alleged) highly developed intuitive abilities. While common sense dictates that what he does is rooted in some form of logic, his friendly, relaxed interactions with people make it easier to accept what they see and hear. The fact that he's working with celebrities, and not random strangers, also adds to the fun. Even if you don't usually buy into this sort of thing, Gone Mental with Lior is still a pretty entertaining treat.
