Is It Any Good?

As Doussett undertakes everything from killer-bee removals to bike messenger work (always under the watchful eye of experienced workers), he narrates his experiences for the camera with easy humor ... and the occasional bleeped expletive. He presents himself as a family guy with three kids and a minivan -- giving viewers the sense that he's just like them. He then suits up for adventure, ready to meet the given day's challenge.

As with any show detailing dangerous excursions, the risk of Hazard Pay for younger viewers is that they'll try to mimic what they see on the screen. In most cases, the nature of these jobs makes it difficult to imagine kids copying them. But parents might want to emphasize that these tasks are done by experts for a reason. The show does a good job of outlining all of the risks, and Doussett doesn't shy away from showing fear when he's in truly dangerous situations, but the audience is clearly meant to admire him for taking these risks -- and that's what parents will want to watch out for.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
