Is It Any Good?

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

This highly competitive series features seasoned marathon runners, trainers, and other fitness-oriented people competing in larger-than-life obstacles for cash. The fun comes from watching them try to outrun the elite athletes they're paired with, who begin to follow them two minutes after the contestants themselves start the race. As the gap between them narrows, each race becomes more intense. But while Million Dollar Mile seems like a show that's hard not to get caught up in, all these components create a race that makes it almost too hard for contestants to win. As a result, the process gets frustratingly repetitive. Nonetheless, if you get a charge from fitness competitions, you'll find it entertaining.
