Is It Any Good?

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

This is probably one of the better family-oriented game shows on TV. Viewers can participate by trying to answer the trivia questions, some of which kids are actually likely to get before their parents do (like "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?"). The producers have done an excellent job making the show fair to all members of the family, and the rules encourage everyone to work together. In the bonus round, the youngest member of the family even gets to choose who will answer the next question based on the topic, offering a way to participate without having to know some of the trickier answers.

The show's only "off" note is the fact that the families can steal each other's prizes, which may strike some kids as unfair (especially with cameras capturing the prizes being "taken away" from the original winners). But if you explain that it's all part of the rules and that everyone knew what they were getting into, it probably won't be a sticking point.

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.
