Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this game show is mild content-wise, but isn't designed for kids. The casino-like setting and contestants' formal attire give the show a decidedly adult feel, and its focus on logic and intellect rather than popular trivia will probably make it less interesting to most younger viewers. Contestants are competing for a $1 million prize, but the show's emphasis is more on problem solving than greedy competition. There are a few tense moments as a result of contestants disagreeing with each other, but nothing much to worry about here.
Is It Any Good?
The show, which is loosely based on a popular Russian game show, attempts to reflect a sophisticated Monte Carlo casino-like elegance that's reminiscent of James Bond movies by dressing competitors and onlookers in tuxedos and evening gowns and by seating competitors around something that resembles a modern gambling table. Meanwhile, the questions steer away from trivia and require both common sense and strong problem-solving skills.
It has some slow moments, but the questions (and their answers) are very interesting. Sometimes the group dynamics between the contestants are entertaining, too. For folks who like game shows that make you think, this one will definitely fit the bill.
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.
