What's the story?

ROMAN ATWOOD'S DAY DREAMS is a reality series featuring YouTube prankster Roman Atwood as he makes young deserving fans' wishes come true. Atwood travels around the country engineering larger-than-life surprises, often in association with organizations like Smile More and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, for kids of all ages who are sick or have special needs. While he takes them to meet their idols, participate in special events, and go on amazing trips, his colleagues Dale, Jon, and Country work on other special surprises to be presented to the kids when their adventures are over. From surprising someone with a trip to be on the Nitro Circus track to installing a special swimming pool for a child who is wheelchair-bound, Atwood is committed to uplifting the spirits of fans who can use a positive moment or two. 

Is it any good?

This positive series follows Atwood as he gives back to society at large by creating happy moments for children living with chronic illness and disabilities. He appears genuinely excited about providing them, and his energetic personality makes the whole experience fun to watch.

There are some mild pranks, but they are pulled as a way to make the surprises bigger for the kids who are receiving them. Shout-outs to donor companies and organizations occur throughout, but it's within reason. Overall, Roman Atwood's Day Dreams shows how a YouTube star can make a major difference in kids' lives.
