Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Melissa & Tye is pretty mild by reality standards, but still features some sexual innuendo and a bit of steamy kissing. Guns are sometimes visible, but not in a violent context. Drinking during parties or over dinner is sometimes visible. All this aside, the series contains some positive messages, including the importance of finding balance between career and family.
Is It Any Good?
Melissa & Tye highlights the challenges that married couples often face when trying to build a life and family together while also building their individual careers. The show highlights the importance of having a supportive family when trying to overcome daily challenges. Thanks to their down-to-earth personalities, both Melissa and Tye are pretty likable, too.
It's pretty tame by reality show standards, but occasional scenes featuring folks in their underwear and actors playing some steamy scenes make for some iffy moments. But the messages are largely positive, and folks looking for some mild voyeuristic entertainment will probably like what they see here.
Did we miss something on diversity?
