A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
It's a competition, but no one takes it too seriously or expects to do a great job. It also reminds you that baking can be fun, but re-creating works of art isn't as easy as it looks. Some baking challenges reflect Mexican cultural norms and traditions, but most are similar to those in original U.S.-based series.

Violence & Scariness

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some mild innuendo that will likely go over the heads of young Spanish speakers. Most of it is lost in the English subtitles.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that ¡Nailed It! México is a Spanish-language reality baking competition that features all the lively fun and baking disasters that its U.S.-based sister series offers. There are a few strong words (including the English word "ass") and some mildly suggestive humor, some of which gets lost in the English subtitles. On occasion the judges consume tequila.
Is It Any Good?
This fun Spanish-language series emulates the popular U.S. series by replicating the original set design and competition rules and some of the episode themes. It also features some U.S.-based judges, including famous baker Sylvia Weinstock, who offers her feedback with the help of a translator. But it also manages to throw some cultural elements into the baking mix, thanks to periodic infusions of local flavors, and iconic themes like piñatas and lucha libre.
Like its sister show, ¡Nailed It! México is upbeat and lively. However, some of the humor is better understood and appreciated by those who speak Spanish, and who understand the cultural nuances associated with the banter. For those who do, it's laugh-out-loud funny. But the goofy heart of the series can be universally understood, as can the comedy of baking disasters. If this is what you're looking for, you won't be disappointed.
