Is It Any Good?

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

Opposite Worlds promotes itself as being revolutionary, but its reliance on social media to encourage audience participation isn't particularly new. The show's interpretation of past and future worlds also seems rooted more in Hollywood than in anything scientific or anthropological. However, what makes the show somewhat interesting is the way it reveals the advantages and disadvantages of each world as well as people's need to adapt to survive.

Folks looking for something slightly more sophisticated than Big Brother or The Glass House may find it here. The voyeuristic nature of the show also will keep reality fans tuned in. But the constant reminders to tweet gets tiresome. Nonetheless, folks who enjoy combining their social-media interests with their television-viewing experience may find following the show entertaining.
