Great show with some language

Lots of fun. My kids love it. It does have some language, though, like "ass" and "dammit". Some risque humor, but generally clean.

Is It Any Good?

While niche, this isn't the weirdest reality series out there, but it definitely helps if you like the idea of large luxury fish tanks. If you do, it's fun to watch stars like Tracy Morgan and Neil Patrick Harris explore the options for their own custom fish (or in Morgan's case, shark) tanks, and there's potential drama that comes with each installation process. Kids and parents who enjoy "family business" style reality shows will probably enjoy the relationships between family members in Tanked, and it can be pretty interesting to see what each customer wants in their own tank.
