Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Hosted by comedian Greg Proops and produced by Whoopi Goldberg, Head Games is the Science Channel's first game show. Its unique blend of comedy and gritty factual knowledge will appeal to families, who are sure to enjoy both Proops' comical one-liners and the curious nature of most of the question topics. And the show's use of video and audio clips breaks any potential monotony and keeps viewers interested the entire time.

Both parents and kids are sure to learn something new every time they tune in, and apart from some mild sexual innuendo, there's no iffy content to worry about. That said, most of the scientific concepts addressed in the show are too advanced for young kids, so save this one for your tweens and teens.

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.
