Is It Any Good?

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

The series takes a brief, voyeuristic look at how families who care about each other struggle to get along thanks to a lack of communication. It also highlights the importance of respecting each other and establishing boundaries, especially when it comes to dealing with parenting and children.

These are positive messages, but each episode is so short that they fail to offer any details about the ways in which people can improve their existing relationships with their in-laws. As a result, much of the focus is on the bickering that takes place between them. But some folks may still find it interesting, or even a little helpful, to watch.

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.
