Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that People Icons is a series that profiles celebrities and other notable people featured in People magazine. There are some references to romance and being sexy, and film clips feature some suggestive moments. Serious injuries and disturbing deaths, including suicide and drug overdoses, are briefly discussed. These details all are offered in a biographical context, but a few of the series installments aren't ideal for younger viewers.
Is It Any Good?
