Is It Any Good?

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

The series attempts to showcase some of the clever, interesting, and sometimes downright weird contraptions people are building around the world to be able to do things that were once considered impossible. It also features some people's unique jobs and interesting hobbies.

While some of what is featured here highlights some real ingenuity, other videos simply showcase silly, irresponsible, and dangerous stunts that people attempt as a way of getting a laugh. Overall, it's a show that is less about inspiration and invention, and more about drawing attention to oneself on the Internet.
