Is It Any Good?

Tease feels a lot like American Idol -- at least during the first segment, in which the judges observe, evaluate, and comment on the small-town stylists' talent. Some remarks can be (pun intended) a bit cutting (in one episode, when a particularly zealous stylist tensely worked her model's hair, one judge reminded her that she had "45 minutes, not 45 seconds" to complete her task), but overall they're generally not as mean-spirited as Simon Cowell & Co. The second segment, however, falls flat; while it's exciting to see a "little guy" take on a pro, if you're rooting for the underdog, it can be a bit of a letdown when the pro comes out on top.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
