Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this surprise car-renovation show is based on a somewhat iffy premise. With the permission of family members, the crew pretends to steal the featured vehicle and follows up with pranks throughout the week while they work on it. While the owners are understandably upset initially (and it's hard to watch them experience the fake theft), they're always happy to get their updated vehicles in the end. Overall, the pranksters take a gentle approach and don't milk the joke too intensely. Lots of automotive brands are featured, along with major car fetishism.

Sexual Content

Very mild jokes -- like "that's one nice rear end!" -- when talking about a car's bumper.

Violence

Fake auto theft.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Overall, the show is about surprising someone with a gift of a rehabbed car, emphasizing the value of good design and hard work. But the method entails faking a theft and tricking the owner, and the crew is mostly male and Caucasian.

Consumerism

Lots of car-related brands appear in the background and are discussed and emphasized onscreen -- Ford, 3M, Armorall, BF Goodrich, etc.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
