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 show with great values!

This is a great show that depicts LGBTQ in a completely normalized setting, free from any bullying and harassment. As a result, the LGBTQ characters go through struggles and adventures like any other sitcom characters. Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara are their usual brilliant selves! The writing is outstanding, bringing silly, light-hearted humor, like the title, and also very sweet, moving stories that make room for people who have traditional values, and those who want other things, like careers & self-growth before settling down. We don't have enough representation for children of healthy, happy LGBTQ people who are successful in stable, loving relationships, or adult women who are ok on their own. This is a great way to share those beliefs with children!

Good show

This is actually a really good show. Finally something that’s not all sex and swearing. Although there is a little it’s very minimal of both.

    Fab small-town spoof; subtle humor may bore kids.

    Hilarious and offbeat, but humor is pretty grownup.

    A Mighty Wind

    Hilarious folk music mockumentary has some innuendo.
