Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

For aspiring journalists or fans of the music business, I'm From Rolling Stone is an exciting, eye-opening look behind the scenes of a major magazine. Teens might be inspired to try out for an internship themselves or explore other avenues to match their interests with their future professions. The plentiful smoking and drinking may be a deterrent for parents, but it's nothing kids won't see plenty of as soon as they hit the college dorms. In fact, the show does a good job of showing how too much partying can negatively affect a young person's dreams. In fact, the show doesn't feel like a reality show as much as a documentary about an actual event that occurs every summer, when thousands of hopefuls submit applications for the six internship spaces at the New York City-based magazine.
