Products & Purchases
The series centers on people’s knowledge of brands, logos, and mascots for grocery items. Brands of items on the shelves are also visible, but not in close range.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reboot of Supermarket Sweep is a lot like the original game show, which lets contestants show off their grocery product knowledge and ability to grab tons of items off supermarket shelves. It also contains some subtle innuendo that will go over kids' heads, some strong language, and, of course, lots of product brand names, logos, and mascots. All this being said, it's a fun, and family-friendly show given fresh energy by lively host Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live).
Is It Any Good?
The fourth revival of the popular series, which originated in 1965, offers lots of high-energy amusement as players work their way through quizzes and grocery aisles. But what makes the series thoroughly entertaining is Leslie Jones, thanks to her fun personality and hosting style. The honest anxiety she expresses as the teams try to beat the clock during grand prize sweep also adds to the fray.
There are only a few slight game updates, which will please fans of the show's earlier incarnations. But the presence of some sidekicks, including a security guard and grocery clerk, are a little weird. Nonetheless, Supermarket Sweep offers lots of lighthearted entertainment that will delight a whole new generation of viewers.
