Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Hit the Floor is a dramatic series that will appeal to teens thanks to its fun, energetic dance music and dance sequences, but much of its steamy content is geared towards adults. It contains nudity (bare bottoms), as well as folks in their underwear, suggestive dance routines, and scenes of folks engaging in sexual activity. Catty behavior is frequent, and sometimes leads to physical fights.
Is It Any Good?
Hit the Floor offers lots of soap-opera like story lines that range from having illicit affairs to cheerleaders who quit under mysterious circumstances. Rounding out the drama are high-energy scenes showcasing choreographed dance moves and contemporary music.
It's not the best written of shows, and some of the narratives featured here reflect stereotypes about both men and women in the sports world. But the content is edgy enough to entertain folks looking for a guilty pleasure. Teens will probably be drawn to it, but it's a show that's best suited for older audiences.
