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.

Great family show, funny

We love this sitcom. It is so relatable to us since we’re a family with young kids close in age. Tim reminds me of my macho dad. We can sit down as a whole family and watch this. Parents are loving and in authority. The family supports each other and every episode we’re laughing out loud. Highly recommend!
