When I sat down on the couch parked in front of the television in the living room, I surfed through the channels and came upon a show called Prank Patrol. I started tuning in to their transmissions more and more frequently and have come to a few conclusions.
This show is intriguing for children, but I find it a bit too obvious that every single prank in there is staged in some way, and that all of the kids in that show are actors - actors with questionable talent at best.
It follows the same outline every show. Introduction; show host thinks of a 'brilliant' prank; preparations are made; prank occurs; pranksters revealed; and then the reactions of the 'victims' are recorded in an interview-style clip. The show gets extremely tedious after a couple of episodes, but I'm sure kids enjoy seeing the different ways one can prank another.
So take it from me, if you've got young kids, this show's appropriate for them, but if you've got any kid older than 11-12 years of age, you won't find them tuning in to this show any more than once or twice. Willingly.
This show will give young children something to watch, but for everyone else, this show will give them something to walk away from.
