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.

18+ !!!

No idea what the CSM reviewer was thinking. This is 18+. Definitely watch the first season yourself before letting your kids watch it.

This is a great spy thriller, but it's not for kids. There's nudity and graphic violence. I watched this through Vidangel, and there were a lot of specific filters for nudity, language, and graphic violence - I turned these filters all on, because I don't want to see that stuff as an adult either.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
