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.

I believe it's one of the best TV series

I absolutely loved the series, it's a great screen adaptation of a wonderful book. There is nothing not to like about the series, writing is excellent, acting is top notch, amazing music, costumes and special effects. And the show itself is a hymn to humanity. My 10 year old daughter enjoyed it almost as much as I did, and I liked her questions and comments, it was not just entertaining, but it made her think and ponder. Yes, there is some swearing and a hint to sex, but I was OK with it. So was she.
