Refreshing reality

I like this show. It is more "real" than a lot of reality t.v. I have seen. The people are actually likeable. Also, the relational struggles are more realistic and are handled well esp. between Dani and Kevin. I like the fact that the many couples represented show the fact that they are Christians but that doesn't make them cultural dopes. They drink alcohol and use the occasional foul language, but they don't get smashed drunk or trash talk people. Also, there is sexual innuendo, but it is vague. It is honestly appropriate for young married couple. Again, it is shown between a married couple. It is obvious that the family all loves each other and is committed to one another. That is the biggest message you get. It is a message that generally is profoundly lacking on television today.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

The voyeuristic series highlights some of the challenges and sacrifices the likable young couple faces as they try to negotiate their desire to have a family with the artistic and business responsibilities that Kevin's musical career requires. It also shows how the two work at understanding and interacting with their respective in-laws in a way that is both loving and respectful.

Jonas Brothers fans will delight in the chance to see what life is like at home and in the studio for Kevin and brothers Nick and Joe, who appear regularly on the show. But these young men are now adults, and so are some of the issues they are dealing with. Nonetheless, the overall show is pretty mild, and fans of the pop group will no doubt find it worth tuning in to.
