Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

It feels like Cedric the Entertainer is working overtime to make this overblown game show work, spouting the show's catch phrase -- "It's worth WHAAAAAAT?" -- more than a dozen times in the first episode alone. But even his unbridled enthusiasm can't make up for the series' shortcomings, or help viewers make much sense of the convoluted rules.

There's also a missed opportunity to educate viewers about the histories of the most interesting items, which would (pardon the pun) add some much-needed value.

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.
