Products & Purchases
There are references to brands like Coke, Pepsi, Fedex (etc.) as part of the game. Occasionally celebrities get plugs for projects they are in.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Password is a reboot of the 1961 classic game show of the same name. It's family-friendly overall, but there are the occasional questionable words or sexual innuendo-filled references (that will probably fly over the heads of young kids). Brands like Coke and Pepsi are referenced within the context of the game, and occasionally a celebrity project or film is mentioned.
Is It Any Good?
The latest reboot of this popular game show offers all the fun and energetic family entertainment that made the original word game famous. Some of the excitement comes from the efforts to win cash. However, the series also generates lots of laughs with the help of the featured celebrities' colorful personalities and comedic abilities. It's amusing, but this version of Password is as much about Jimmy Fallon as it is about the overall competition, and makes you feel like you're watching one of his installments of The Tonight Show. Nonetheless, if you're looking for a lighthearted competition series to tune into, you'll probably like this one.
