Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

NFL Rush Zone is a joint project between the NFL and Nickelodeon, a pairing unexpected enough that it begs questions about the purpose behind it and the products it manufactures. The show is geared toward kids, some of whom may already know their way around a football game and a favorite NFL team, but plenty others of whom probably don't. If NFL and Nickelodeon have anything to do with it, though, that will change, and the show will inspire not so much an affection for the game as a burning desire to lay claim to the colorful brand logos on parade throughout the series.

Of course, kids who are already fans of the league and its teams will really enjoy how the show incorporates its guest stars, and the good news is that they play a big role in illustrating some worthwhile messages about relationships and personal responsibility. But the real kicker? The show devotes too much time to pushing the NFL brand that the actual storyline gets lost in the shuffle.

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.
