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.

Some reviewers are strange...

Sure, I don’t think I will let my 9yr old son watch this yet but it has nothing to do with two guys going on a date. Instead it has everything to do with the pretty brutal war scenes. How is it that people can be so focused on the gay part and completely ignore that a guy got his chest blown open? I get the impression that some of these reviewers would be just fine with the violence even for young kids and came here just to complain about the fact that gay people exist. Astounding.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
age 10+

Ignore the other reviews.

So just because the other reviewers don't want to parent doesn't mean the TV show is bad. They are going to have to explain it - unless you never take them to Wal-Mart or out in public. Hand-holding and a few pecks. No more than Wolverine trying to come on Jean Gray in your Saturday afternoon cartoon.
