Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

World Series is the ultimate show for junkies who gorge themselves on obscure entertainment tidbits, and it will likely find an audience -- just probably not with kids who don't know (or care about) the answers. Although the show borrows its overly theatrical music and lighting from Millionaire, it keeps things light by letting teams pick out their own descriptive names and matching outfits (which are often pretty ridiculous). But as host, the buttoned-up Kiernan manages to flatten a bit of the fun, looking more like an Ivy League banker instead of someone who might watch Scooby Doo.

Some of the contestants aren't the best sports when they lose, and others are irritatingly overconfident. But if you're a trivia addict and can look past the bum-bum-bumm music and the contestants' generally lame attempts to crack wise, you'll have fun testing your knowledge of the obscure.

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.
