Good program decent for 11 year olds

My 11 year old loved this program, I think that as long as they know not to repeat the words then it is fine. I do not know how some people said this is an 18 cause it is not that bad.
age 10+

Overall a good program

I think that this program is a good watch and I would recommend it to most ages probably 10 up. If your child can withstand a bit of swearing then I would recomend it. I loved this program and so did my 12 year old son.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (3 ):

This entertaining show features lots of dry, mature humor as the oddball father-and-son team bond during their fun, awkward, and at times poignant journey. Jack Whitehall showcases a lot of his offbeat, and sometimes crude, comedy style, while his father (who also works in the entertainment industry) plays the straight man. But there are some serious moments, too, especially when visiting places of tragic historical significance.

The majority of the scenes appear to be partially orchestrated for the benefit of the audience. Meanwhile, stateside audiences may be a little surprised at the lack of emotion they express for each other. But it is clear that they are enjoying the experience. Overall, Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father is worth a watch if you're looking for something lighthearted and with a little heart.
