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.

NOT for the faint of heart!

I REALLY enjoyed this show until I realized that the main characters get killed off every other episode! Also VERY Violent! I’m still traumatized a decade later after the episode when the female Is killed by being put in a vat of acid...alive. Eesh...stopped watching it then. LOTS of torture scenes. Great story lines but not for me! Not for kids either!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
