Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this show glorifies the art of being crude, rude, and disgusting. The participants stop at nothing when it comes to taking on stunts; the more cringe-worthy, the better. They frequently put themselves at risk of physical danger and are always taunting each other and putting each other down. Adults who have the sense not to try the stunts for themselves (and don't mind watching people painfully make idiots of themselves) may get some laughs, but for kids, this is shock TV at its worst.
- Sexual Content
- Anything crude is played up. Bare butts are glimpsed, and the guys often make fake thrusting movements and grab themselves. Sophomoric behavior and comments are the norm.
- Plenty of personal injuries (mostly mild, but not always) from the stunts the guys put themselves through. What often starts out as play-fighting can turn pretty intense/painful. Their goal seems to be to bash each other as often and as forecefully as possible (with the assistance of heavy machinery, if possible).
- Plenty of fairly mild swearing (harsher words, like "f--k," are bleeped) and coarse, rough language among the show's posse.
- Social Behavior
- The series features the art of being crude, rude, and disgusting as entertainment.
- Products and signage show up mostly in the background.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Some stunts are so far out there seems no other explanation for why the participants do them except for booze. Some to-dos are predicated on bring drunk.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
