Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The reality docuseries offers an inside look into Hollywood's competitive dance world, and what it takes to succeed in it. But the show's drama also comes from the dancers' romantic entanglements, including Gibson's secret romance with business partner Joe Wilson, which lead to some awkwardly voyeuristic scenes.

There are attempts by Gibson to send some positive messages about working hard and having a strong sense of self, but they are sometimes offset by her sense of self-importance and her use of racially oriented remarks. Nonetheless, teens interested in dance and/or the Hollywood scene will probably find the show very entertaining.
