Not wheel of Fortune

Okay I tuned into this expecting a wheel of Fortune type game show and I personally wasn't wowed the game was good enough to watch once a week but that's about it dax is a tad wooden if you ask me he just doesn't have the welcoming spirit other game host have it's not the worst but simply not the best time of the summer

This title has:

Great role models
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Despite a few obvious parallels to Wheel of Fortune, this positive and lively series features contestants who are recognized for giving back in some way. Meanwhile, the inclusion of family and friends in the overall experience gives the sense that the whole thing isn't just about winning piles of money. It also makes for some emotional moments. But Dax Shepard's sense of humor, along with the energy that comes from the folks trying to spin and win, prevents the show from getting too hokey. If you like simple, family-friendly game shows, Spin the Wheel is a great alternative.
