Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the improv reality series Repeat After Me gives celebrities the chance to "punk" innocent bystanders as they obey commands from the show's host, funny lady Wendi McClendon-Covey. The show offers lots of funny moments, but some of the humor contains some sexual references (genitalia, inappropriate liaisons) that will go over younger kids' heads, as well as a few strong words ("damn," "ass"). Jokes include mild references to shooting, drinking, and smoking, but none of these things is shown.
Is It Any Good?
From creating inappropriate interview situations for a prospective nanny to driving a French language teacher nuts, the series shows how talented actors are able to take direction and create hilariously strange moments for the people around them. There are some cringe-worthy moments, but the situations are constructed to make the actors look humorously foolish, while the "victims" are mostly confused (though some of their reactions are priceless). Overall, it's a genuinely entertaining show that offers lots of laugh-out-loud fun for tweens and teens.
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.
