Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the reality spin-off She's Got Game is a dating competition of sorts that contains lots of arguing, strong language ("piss," "bitch," "damn"; endless bleeped cursing), sexual innuendo, and lots of drinking. iPhones and Apple laptops frequently are visible. It contains lots of iffy (and often sexist) messages about finding love and building relationships.
Is It Any Good?
The voyeuristic series sends questionable (and rather sexist) messages about finding love by featuring seemingly educated and professional women childishly competing for a man's attention. Furthermore, its entertainment value comes from showing how far the women will go to win the chance to be with the Game, while attempting to sabotage each other in the process.
It's traditional reality dating fare, but the fact that the folks who "introduced" these women to him are fueling this dating game by coaching them to look or behave a certain way only makes the overall premise feel even more tawdry. Some folks may like this sort of entertainment, but ultimately there just isn't a whole lot here that's positive.
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.
