You might think this all smacks of the same stuff as so many other star-studded reality TV predecessors, but this show differs in a few key ways. First, it's not a competition in the elimination sense; no one goes home until the Nashville contest. Instead, the focus is on improving skills and gaining confidence in a new endeavor. This greatly reduces the amount of trash talking among the nine riding newbies and encourages them to support each other's efforts, which gives the show a more positive vibe.

Also central is the show's emphasis on safety; Murray and his cohorts are passionate about teaching their charges the basics that could very well save their lives once they enter the arena. The added bonus is that viewers learn a lot about this extreme sport, too. All in all, the show is a pleasant surprise among its reality peers. Just know that since red-letter language is prevalent (the strongest words are bleeped), it's best for older tweens and teens.
