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.

age 13+

a wasted opportunity for a good show

The sex jokes, which are often put in out of the blue for no good reason, make this series questionable for children under 13. But that's not the main problem of the show. Its main problem is that one character is always trying to upstage all the others. In the process the storylines and the messages usually get lost.
