Is It Any Good?

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

The family-friendly series shows some of the day-to-day interactions that take place when everyone is home. It's a big crowd, and sometimes it's hard to keep the peace. There are some humorous moments, though, especially when Kenny's laid-back and fun-focused approach to being a dad isn't consistent with Gwen's more disciplined style. It's not the most original of shows, but Meet the Smiths contains its fair share of manufactured on-camera activities (and drama) to keep reality fans interested. There also are lots of positive messages here, especially when it comes to being good parents and understanding what it means to be a family.

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.
