The Spin Crowd is a spin-off of a spin-off -- and that should tell you something right there. (Specifically, something like, "Quick, change the channel.") But if that's not enough to sway you, know this: Cheban may look familiar because you've seen him before on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, and Kim Kardashian (of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the show that started it all) is one of the show's executive producers.

Those things alone don't add up to an automatic misfire. But the show digs its own grave right from the first episode, when Cheban's newest employee proves her dedication to the firm by getting her lips injected against her will, all because her boss told her she looked "homely." (Not that it matters, but, for the record, she's already beautiful.) With tears streaming down her face, she agrees to alter her appearance for her job ... and in that moment, we lose all respect.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
