Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Almost Impossible Game Show features adults competing in outlandish challenges for a cash prize. There's a lot of funny banter, but it's full of iffy language, bleeped cursing, and sexual comments, including some very sexist humor (like a slow-motion shot of bouncing breasts during a challenge). References to drinking and looking drunk are common. Safety gear is used, and no one gets seriously hurt, but viewers of all ages shouldn't try these stunts at home.
Is It Any Good?
This fun adaptation of a popular Irish game show offers all the goofy humor the original is known for, but it's a bit edgy for younger teens. Much of the fun comes from the narration, which ranges from quick, witty banter to politically incorrect comments. Contestants' personalities add to the overall vibe, especially when they play up to the cameras.
It's silly, and many won't appreciate some of the show's sexist moments, even though the hosts fully acknowledge the impropriety of their words. But if you're looking for a mindless viewing experience that might elicit a chuckle or two, you may find The Almost Impossible Game Show worth tuning into.
Did we miss something on diversity?
