Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Polaris Primetime is a series that features gamers and online celebs playing video games. It's mild, but some video games feature some mild fantasy violence. Lots of video games and YouTube videos are discussed and joked about. There's some very mild innuendo, and viewers are constantly invited to watch the streaming content related to the show. It's geared toward people of all ages, but unless kids are avid gamers or enjoy watching online personalities, they probably won't be interested.
Is It Any Good?
This energetic series features competitions, viral videos, and lots of banter revolving around the gaming and online community. The hosts play video games with their guests, highlight their favorites, and even give occasional demonstrations. While they do this, they also participate in strange cooking sessions, dance around, listen to music, and do all sorts of other things.
It's a pretty mild series. However, the endless game playing, combined with some silly stuff, won't appeal to everyone. But Polaris Primetime celebrates this facet of the digital community, and creates a social experience that is intended for viewers who are already a part of it. If you are a gamer, or enjoy watching online personalities, it's an entertaining experience.
