Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

It's no surprise that One Ocean View is the brainchild of The Real World producers Jonathan Murray and Joey Carson. After all, they've basically taken the format that made MTV's pioneering show so successful -- throw a bunch of strong personalities together in a house, shake, stir, and see what happens -- and re-jiggered it for primetime. There's even an appearance by The Real World: New York heartbreaker Eric. If you're a fan of Real World-type drama and shenanigans, you'll probably enjoy One Ocean View, too, but there's really nothing new here. And parents should know that kids who tune in will get an eyeful of fluffy, for-older-teens-only fare.

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.
