fun and educational

For a long time I hated JEOPARDY for one reason and one reason only- because the answers have to be in the form of a question. That's dumb. But, if you can get past that, as I finally did after many years, you and your whole family and indeed everyone around you will find yourselves learning a lot.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (21):

The modern version of this classic series -- which previously aired both in the 1960s and 1970s -- has enjoyed international success thanks to its fast pace and unique answer-and-question format. The wide range of subjects it covers and the difficulty of the clues also gives the show an intellectual quality. Fast-paced and fun, viewers will find themselves playing along and testing their own trivia knowledge. And they'll probably find themselves humming the catchy theme song, too.

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.
