What's the story?

SERIOUSLY FUNNY KIDS features Project Runway host Heidi Klum interacting with children in order to bring out their funny side. The show features Klum interviewing kids to see what insights they offer about things like American history and relationships. With the help of hidden cameras, she also plays some pranks on some unsuspecting children. Home videos sent in by viewers also add to the fun.

Is it any good?


The unscripted series features some amusing scenes thanks to the reactions of some very funny kids. Klum appears comfortable when she interacts with her young guests, which makes the show feel very genuine. Meanwhile, the practical jokes played on the kids are good-natured, and always end on a positive note.

Unfortunately, some of the silly gags seem to go on too long, and at times Klum just isn’t very funny. Some of the jokes featured here are a little risqué, and Klum’s trendy outfits and ultra high heels sometimes seem out of place. Luckily, the kids featured here are so humorous and insightful that they make up for these shortfalls.

i watched it once- it's okay

i watched it once it's just about this woman who has a lot of kids do things to her like put makeup on her and stuff. At least that's how i see it.
