  • *** Spoiler-free *** Refreshing challenge, funny moments, great character development, interesting aging process, inspiring winner and struggling contestants

    After the clash that occurred in Open to the Public I was expecting something more refreshing and it's exactly what Child's Play delivered. The destination Simon led the contestants to was surprising and should instantly bring you long time forgotten memories. But with such a title it was obvious the artists would have to deal with children stuff. Between snacks they really struggled to dig out ideas from their past. However it was really interesting to learn more about all of them so the character development was great. Now nearly half of the others have been eliminated there's more room to cover their individual stories. As for their work some of the pieces were really interesting, specially the winning ones of course. Otherwise what really stroke me is how some of them miserably failed. The challenge also revealed how growing up is a complex process because for some people it's about forgetting who they were when in the best possible scenario our past should help us build our future and fully live the present. These issues were recently covered in the French film L'âge de Raison starring Sophie Marceau. In fact it was interesting to consider the different contestants and the solutions they found to solve their childhood problems and become adults. One of them successfully transformed traumatic events into strength so it was definitely inspiring. Last but not least the next episode sneak peek should really intrigue you and as the challenges difficulty keep increasing I can't wait to know who will be the next to go home !moreless
