Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

A subtle but humorous look at what happens when the modern world collides with tradition, this show makes sumo wrestling available to even the most dedicated slacker. Sumo Do, Sumo Don't stars a character who acts like he's sauntered out of a John Hughes movie. He's an anti-hero who tries to rest on his charm, but life has other plans for him.

Adults might find the inherent and overt sexist behavior of the old-boy club in this show interesting to watch. Even more fascinating is the quiet dismantling of that club by the female characters. Teens will likely warm to this show more slowly, but there's an underdog story to be told here. And who doesn't love an underdog?
