Is It Any Good?

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

For those involved, this series is a win-win; viewers who are fans of RocketJump's work already will want a peek at how it's done, and those who aren't will be inclined to seek out more. That's not necessarily bad, given that this behind-the-cameras virtual field trip is fairly entertaining even for the casual viewer. But given that their forum is the Internet, which is a big-time sponge for many teens already, it's important to weigh the good against the bad.

Speaking of the good, there is some merit in seeing how two friends turned their passion for filmmaking into a lucrative career and built a company that allows others to do so as well. Wong and Arnold certainly haven't lost their passion for the work they do, and there are some decent examples of conflict resolution and problem solving as the creative teams blend their ideas into a workable project. If the self-promotional aspect of the show doesn't bother you (and the occasional strong language isn't a concern), then RocketJump might pique the interest of curious teens.
