Is It Any Good?

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

The voyeuristic series feels like a distant cousin of the Real Housewives franchise thanks to its rather bland and unoriginal look at the suburban lives of a group of women focused on money, looking good, and enjoying a life of privilege. It also features all the expected dramatic arguing and relationship problems that one expects from reality shows of this kind.

There are lots of conversations about who is (or was) dating whom, lucrative divorce settlements, and, of course, one another. This not only serves to highlight their affluence but reveals how disconnected they are from the larger community around them. It doesn't make any of the women particularly likable. But if you aren't looking for anything too stimulating, you might find it appealing.
