Cool Guys

I think TJ is absolutely gorgeous, sexy and a beautiful soul. He has charisma like his uncle Micheal and beautifully dispositioned. Prince is Awesome. Love his out going personality. The oldest brother is really honest and heartfelt. He should get a distance between him and his partner. He attitude stinks. He can do much better.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This somewhat bland "celebreality" series is designed to prove to the world that the next generation of Jacksons is living average lives despite the family's legacy. However, the constant discussions about the trio's music career, as well as appearances by various other well-known Jacksons such as Tito, Prince, grandmother Katherine, and even a few Kardashians, serve as constant reminders that they their world is often everything but.

It offers very positive messages about the importance of family, even if this one isn't perfect. But outside of this, the show doesn't offer anything beyond its standard reality contemporaries. Nonetheless, Jackson fans will enjoy the glimpse into their world.
