Kids say: Not yet rated

The Gotti family's loving-but-dysfunctional relationship adds some drama, but it isn't really that fun to watch, especially when Irv and Deb discuss their problems in front of their kids. Gotti's Way is an obvious attempt to restore Gotti's professional and personal reputation. But while the show may appeal to hip-hop fans, the mixed messages it sends about family relationships doesn't make it a overly positive viewing choice.
