Is It Any Good?

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

While Lil and the Coyotes often mention how empowered the chain's bartenders are, one viewing will probably be enough to convince most people that they're simply glorified exotic dancers. But for some it's a way to make good money while showing off some creativity; for others, it's an exploration into a whole different way of presenting oneself to the world; and others are just having a great time.

Because of the show's emphasis on alcohol and provocative behavior, as well as its confusing messages about gender and sexuality, chances are most parents will want their kids to avoid it. Mature teens might be attracted to the sexed-up American Idol-like concept, but since the series doesn't offer any examples of -- or discussion about -- drinking responsibly, parents will want to offer some of their own advice.

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.
