Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Part reality competition and part train wreck, this is a formulaic series produced to make its cast look pathetic. The Snowflake Mountain contestants, who were told they were going to a 5-star resort, show off their big (albeit contrived) personalities that underscore their sense of entitlement. As a result, much of the show's entertainment value comes from watching them meltdown in spectacular fashion and live up to the "snowflake" stereotype. The guides, two White American men, seem pleased by the fact that they'll be pushing their charges -- largely people of color -- to the brink, and take a lot of pleasure in their discomfort. But Snowflake Mountain's biggest problem is that the members of the overall cast, despite each person's backstory, aren't as interesting as they think they are. This makes it hard to ignore the fact that it's just an unoriginal fish-out-of-water contest that most reality fans have seen before. Folks who like voyeuristic viewing experiences may be inclined to check it out, but there's not much here to get excited about.
