Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rambug features lots of yelling, screaming, and arguing between pest-control business staff members. Expect plenty of salty vocab and bleeped curses ("f--k," "s--t"). Viewers may find the images of roaches, bed bugs, rats, and other critters disturbing, too. It also contains positive messages about the importance of family, as well as working hard and serving clients.
Is It Any Good?
Like other pest-control shows, Rambug features lots of hair-raising scenes of bed bugs, roaches, maggots, and rats in people's homes and personal spaces. Equally stressful is some of the arguments between the Rambug gang, which range from being silly family squabbles to all-out unprofessional behavior.
They're a likable gang, but one can't help chuckling when the burly Robbie and his swat team of camouflage-clad men compare themselves to therapists, rock stars, and ladies men. But their willingness to work hard and help their clients in their time of need earns them respect. Ultimately, there's something of value here for for folks entertained by this sort of thing.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
