Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Playing off of the popular formula of shows like The Deadliest Catch and Lobster Wars, Lobstermen successfully duplicates their authentic portrayals of today's fishermen. It also reminds viewers of the culture and folklore surrounding the time-honored profession.

That said, viewers may find themselves experiencing a sense of deja vu as they watch some of the captains and their crew members (many of whom have also appeared on those other shows) do the same things all over again here. Even some of the climactic moments seem a bit repetitive. But loyal fans of the genre will probably take comfort in this and will still be able to find some entertaining moments.

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.
