A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this reality series featuring actor Terry Crews, his wife, and family is full of positive messages about marriage, parenthood, and family with subtle references to God and Christianity. Adults occasionally drink (wine, beer, champagne), and the younger Crews children sometimes argue and push each other.
What's the story?
THE FAMILY CREWS is a reality series that follows the daily antics of Everybody Hates Chris star Terry Crews, his wife Rebecca, and their children: Naomi, Azriel, Terra, Wynfrey, and their only son, 3-year-old Isaiah. While renewing his vows with his wife of 20 years or taking his kids to school, Crews shares his insights about being a husband and father while juggling an acting career.
Is it any good?
Like the sitcom that he stars in, Crews takes a humorous approach when talking about his relationship with his wife and children. There are some serious moments, too, especially when the family faces potential crises thanks to wildfires and their kids' sometimes rebellious ways.
It’s all pretty mild, and like many reality shows of this kind, some of the scenes seem a little staged. The Cosby-like family also comes off a little too perfect at times. But this doesn’t take away from the strong positive messages it offers about marriage, parenthood, and family.
