Though the focus on brunch may seem narrow at first, the range of dishes, the engaging chefs, and the skilled hosting from Dan Levy make this a hearty feast of a show. The contestants in The Big Brunch hail from across the U.S. and represent a range of perspectives, including the Black, Asian, and queer ones that have become more centered in recent food competition shows. Except for a few snarky comments from the judges, the show highlights the love and support among the contestants.

Sounds like a great family watch, right? Parents of younger kids may be surprised that the bleep-free audio sometimes features "f--k," "s--t," etc. The focus on colorful, fun alcoholic drinks at every brunch table may also be a red flag for some families. Otherwise, The Big Bruch is a relaxed, inspiring, satisfying binge.
