Is It Any Good?

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

This heartwarming and energetic series offers a fun chance to watch a game played for money without focusing on the greed that usually drives these kinds of competitions. A big part of the fun is watching the real winner learn about what their friends and family have done for them.

It's definitely exciting, but each episode of the show is as much about the person who will be receiving the cash prize as it is about the competition itself. As a result, there are constant reminders of the difficult (and sometimes tragic) circumstances that prompted contestants to play the game. Some viewers may find these moments saddening, while others will be inspired by them. Regardless, they'll definitely find the overall experience entertaining.
