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.

Mediocre, alright

It’s kinda funny to see how people back in the 90s thought the 2000s would be like with a technologically advanced house. It’s alright, a little cheesy and boring. I thought it would be better but it lacked something important.
