Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Separation Anxiety is an adult-oriented, relationship-themed game show that features some occasional strong language (with some words bleeped) and sexual innuendo. Cocktails are visible, and there are references to smoking "weed."
Is It Any Good?
The entertaining relationship-based quiz show offers some humorous, nail-biting moments as couples play the lopsided game with only one of them stressing through it. Adding to the fray are the laughs generated by some quirky and sometimes silly moments created by Adam Ray, which are interspersed throughout the competition to provide some much-needed comic relief.
It's fun, but some of Shlesinger's banter feels a little ill-timed given the high levels of anxiety at least one of the players is experiencing. But these moments aren't distracting enough to take away from the overall experience. Even if you're not into game shows, you can't help but get caught up in this one.
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.
