Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The energetic, semi-formulaic series features cast members from various seasons of primetime competitions pushing themselves for a chance to win cash. Despite some twists, it follows a pattern of extreme activities and competitive behavior one has come to expect from these types of shows. Meanwhile, there are conversations about things that happened in prior competitions (accompanied with limited archive video), and lots of underhanded strategizing as players try to figure out how to negotiate the game, avenge former cast mates, and protect their own interests. If you're a fan of the franchise, or follow the reality shows these cast members hail from, you'll find The Challenge: USA very entertaining.
