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.

Level Up!

Silly movie, with an even more ridiculous plot but its the pilot to a much less interesting tv series. The movie was good. But the show that follows is just plain dumb.

Games limit

I think that parents should reduce the time we spend on gaming. We see only the computer and forget about all our friends. That's not good. ________________ audio editor, Richard
