Excellent show

Good show but ballista is a tad too sexual. (Blonde lady). Wife caught me with a hard on.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

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

There are no surprises in this frantically paced game show, which is bound to entice kids on sheer messiness alone. After all, what isn't fun about watching a bunch of kids wade through soap suds, get doused by slime, and bump around on obstacles that toss them into the water? Not much in the eyes of 5- to 8-year-olds especially, and even if Splatalot isn't exactly good clean fun, it sure doesn't miss the mark on entertainment value.

Splatalot is a bit like the candy of the game show family; it's enticing, fun, and colorful, but there's not a lot of substance if you really think about it. Bottom line? It's fine for occasional viewing, but all your kids will get out of it is a burning desire to turn your house into an oversized obstacle course, complete with neon slime.
