Is It Any Good?

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

Yes, it bears a few too many similarities to Survivor (which, not coincidentally, is also produced by reality guru Mark Burnett), but for saltwater-veined fans, Pirate Master's celebration of all things swashbuckling gives it a fresh new spin that's a lot of fun.

But parents, avast: Human skeletons litter the treasure-hunt path (some impaled with weapons), lady pirates bare plenty of cleavage (who knew buccaneers wore bikinis?), and expletives like "ass" are always a potential hazard. All of that, mixed with typical reality fare like trash-talking and animosity, makes this best suited for older tweens and teens.
