Is It Any Good?

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

The LaFriedas and their compatriots are mostly appealing and admirably experienced and educated about meat. Some parents may not appreciate the frequent (bleeped) cursing and non-stop ribbing, but the depth of information on meat and how it's cut and prepared is very interesting to cooks, new or long-time.

The restaurant world can be a macho one and that's evident on Meat Men. But the subject matter is distinct and unique enough to rate this a watch, particularly for those who like other cooking or reality shows about business, like Cake Boss or Deadliest Catch.

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.
