I find this a great compromise as a choosy parent co-watching with 13yo ADHD son...

I am trying to find shows that my ADHD impatient 13 yo son will watch and also be inspired by (in overcoming social and sports challenges), together with the rest of our family (11 yo daughter) - its not my kind of show but it is exciting and positive. Its hard to find movies or films that will tick the boxes above(!) and I welcome recommendations

Fun show, but too much cussing

This show would be perfect if The Rock would stop cussing. There's literally no reason for him to say "fun as h---" or "professor of bada---ery" or "hard a---" We're watching on Hulu and we just started the Season 2 premier (the first ep on Hulu) and it's just about too much. We're careful about what our daughter watches, and we've turned off shows for less (Adrian Zumbo's Just Desserts, for example). The show has heart, it's engaging, the bio clips are inspiring. This show would be perfect for our family if they'd just stop cussing. I don't get it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (4 ):

This high-energy series gives non-professional athletes who take fitness very seriously the chance to push themselves in ways they haven't before. Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson, who designed the physical challenges, encourages contestants to not give up, and proudly congratulates them when they've pushed their mental and physical strength beyond ordinary limits.

Thanks to the host's supportive attitude, and the contestants' good attitudes,The Titan Games maintains a largely positive vibe. But the overall show doesn't feel particularly original. There's also lots of time spent sharing contestants' backstories. Nonetheless, it's still entertaining, and some folks might even be inspired by it to push themselves to meet their fullest potential.
