In appropriate language

My stepdaughter was watching the show and so far it seemed pretty good, funny and silly then the youngest daughter in the show said “I guess I’ll use my imagination or some dumb CRAP like that”. I do not want and do not allow my children (8 and 5) to speak this way so unfortunately if I hear anymore language similar we will have to stop watching this show. Keep it clean please.

An otherwise harmless show marred by language

This show is mostly harmless, if dumb. However the content seems made for 8-10 year olds but uses words like "oh my God, crap," and- most jarring to me- "sexy". In one particular epsiode the word sexy is used multiple times. Example- the dad is talking about chocolate covered strawberries and describes them as "the world's sexiest fruit." Anyone that is old enough for the word sexy to be appropriate for, isn't watching this show. Instead it's my 8 year old. It feels pretty gross and creepy.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (19 ):

The sweet family comedy features wrestler Big Show playing a fictionalized version of himself as a very sensitive husband and a father. As his family copes with mishaps that are usually created, or made worse, by Big Show's interference, they all remain close, and manage to come together in the end. Meanwhile, there's lots of wrestling references, and pro wrestlers like Mick Foley, Mark Henry, and Rikishi make appearances throughout. Sometimes fun celebs like Queer Eye's Tan France join the fray. It's not the funniest or most original of shows, but The Big Show Show is certainly a positive one.
