Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Overall, this is pretty familiar stuff: Frantic teammates, lots of in-fighting, and whispered politicking back at the beautiful New York City loft the contestants share. There's the obnoxious guy, the gay guy, the girl-next-door, blah, blah, blah. It's embarrassing to watch them paste on smiles for Martha, and annoying to watch them fight in front of her.

In the end, there's not a whole lot that's new here. Martha's personality certainly isn't as big as Trump's, but even with her stiff exterior she's somehow alluring. Maybe we're just drawn to her because we all know her backstory and want to see if she'll ever mention her time behind bars (not promising considering how this was all but skipped over during her bio at the beginning of the show). But really watching her -- and seeing her craft her note -- is about the only reason to tune in.

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.
