Is It Any Good?

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

The show's premise is pretty simple, so it's hard to go wrong. Anyone who likes to see the most intense moment of a match will certainly get their fill here. All of the action is commented on by a very exuberant narrator, who seems to take great delight in watching people take falls.

Actually, maybe a little too much delight. There's a fine line between appreciating high-level athletics and taking pleasure in others' pain, and the commentary in Knockout Sportsworld straddles that line. There are certainly plenty of exciting moments, but some viewers might find the gleeful voice-over a bit unseemly.
